Speaking on the occasion, the two time House of Reps member, Hon. Chike Okafor did a recap of the circumstances that brought him into the support for Governor Hope Uzodimma, asserting that upon his victory at the supreme court, on 14 January, 2020, the leadership of Rescue Mission political family directed all their members to through their weight behind Governor Hope Uzodimma, a decision he has had no reason to regret adhering to.
He further stated that Okigwe South is a peculiar political Constituency, that is blessed with both a Federal cabinet minister, a Senator, a Reps member as well the highest ranking political appointee in the state, the Secretary to the Government of Imo State, and as such, is the epicenter of the APC in the entire Southeast.
Hon. Chike Okafor while assuring that his usual empowerment programme is in the offing, urged the structural heads to brace up for good times, as a result of their support for Governor Uzodimma.
Among those who were present at the meeting and spoke in affirmative to the directive of the upwardly mobile legislator include, Hon.
