Stakeholders and members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Igbo-Eze North Local Government Area, Enugu State yesterday staged a One–Million- March for Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi and the PDP Governorship Candidate in Enugu State, Dr Peter Mbah with an assurance to mobilise 100 per cent votes for the duo during the general elections.
The mammoth crowd, which gathered at the pavilion of the local government headquarters, Ogrute marched through the major roads leading to Nsukka, Ette and Obollo Afor. Though it was an Eke market day, many of the excited supporters shunned the Eke Ozzi market to participate in the rally.
Speaking after the solidarity march, Chairman of Igbo-Eze North LGA, Prince Ejike Itodo, said the solidarity march was a show of strength of the party in the council area in its avowed determination to record 100 per cent votes for Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi who is going to the Senate to represent Enugu North Zone and Peter Mbah who by the grace of God will be the next governor of Enugu State.
He said the votes of the entire people of Igbo-Eze North belong to the PDP as they will vote across board for all the PDP candidates in Enugu State.
He said that the people at the grassroots know they belong to the PDP and will make a statement with their voter cards during the election away from the euphoria of social media noise.
Special Adviser to the Governor, Hon. Kentus Ezeh, said the unprecedented crowd that participated in the solidarity march clearly demonstrated the fact that no other party can beat PDP in Igbo-Eze North.
Zonal Chairman of PDP, Nze Mike Onyeze and IgboEze North local government party chairman, Chief Alex Urama said the people of Igbo–Eze North will show appreciation to Governor Ugwuanyi for his sterling performance in office and love for the people of Igbo-Eze North by voting for the PDP during the elections.
