The Imo State chapter of the Labour Party has urged the state governor, Hope Uzodimma, to give room for a violence free campaigns season as the state governorship election holds on November 11.

At a press conference in Owerri, the state capital, on Thursday, during the kick off of the 2023 Governorship campaigns in the state, the Director General of the campaign Organisation of the LP governorship candidate, Chime Nzeribe, said that the party was ready to play by the rules provided by the Independent National Electoral Commission.

Nzeribe said that the party’s governorship candidate, Athan Achonu, was determined to win the election, adding that the party would capitalise on its overwhelming support by the masses to win the election.

He therefore called on the state governor and his aides to allow the campaigns to be determined by issues affecting the people of the state and its economic well-being.

Nzeribe said ” we in the Labour Party and senator Athan Achonu campaign Organisation expect a violence free, issue based campaigns. Our message which has been consistently pro people will be transmitted to all nooks and crannies of the state.

“In keeping with our belief and our faith and trust in God Almighty, we will start our campaigns with  prayer sessions in the various churches across Imo State.

“These prayer sessions would not only be for a smooth and violence free campaigns and elections but for the repose of the souls of the victims of violence in our dear state including civilians and security agents.

“We will also include in our prayer sessions the Labour Party presidential candidate petition at the election petition tribunal, for God to in His infinite mercies direct our judges to uphold justice and do what is right before our laws and God.

“We are very appreciative of the support of our people Imoliites for senator Athan Achonu and Labour Party. We solemnly promise our long suffering and traumatised people that relief is on the way . Relief from this seemingly unending insecurity, fraudulent elections and the creeping economic meltdown and the decay of the basic infrastructure.”
