Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Imo North senatorial by-election says he is very optimistic that he would emerge victorious in the election coming up in December 5
Speaking during a chat with reporters Okewulonu said the people of Okigwe have given him full support.
He said: “I am confident of winning the December 5 by-election. I was assured of victory before I joined the race because I consulted my God, and He gave me a positive response.
“I’ve reached out to every ward, stakeholder, community and traditional leaders in Okigwe. I am also amazed at the overwhelming support I have from the people, they have shown me love and support in my ambition, and I am convinced that I am accepted here.”
He however charged the electoral umpire, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to live up to expectations.
“INEC should ensure this election is void of electoral malpractices. The people should be allowed to decide what they want.” he said.
