Charity, they say begins at home, so it happened last week in the large compound of the president general of Mbieri, Mbaitoli, Dicken Chuma Okwaodu.
It was a gathering of who is who in Mbieri, President General, clan heads, family heads and the academia with their people.
It was for one objective, to endorse their illustrious son, Barrister Humphrey Anumudu for the 2019 Imo governorship race.
Everybody who was supposed to speak spoke. They include the president general Dichen Chuma Okwaodu and Dr J.I Mgbeahuru. All described Barrister Humphrey as a son with whom Mbieri people are well pleased, for his philanthropy, humility and honesty.
Mbieri echoed with one loud voice that only Barrister Anumudu is their governorship candidate at the 2019 polls, adding that all other candidates should look elsewhere and forget campaigning in Mbieri.
In his response, the state Governor 2019, Barrister Humphrey Anumudu expressed joy and appreciation with the gesture of his people, Mbieri.
He reiterated Mbieri’s promise to massively vote for him and reminded them of the need to guard their votes after voting.
Barrister Anumudu promised to live up to the expectations of Mbieri people when he becomes the governor of Imo State in May 2019.
In his speech earlier at the occasion, the Deputy governorship candidate, Rt Hon Okay Dike told ndi Mbieri how their illustrious son made Chief Achike Udenwa the first governor from Orlu zone in 1999, by conceding his governorship ticket to him in the spirit of zoning.
Rt Hon Dike, who hails from Orlu zone said that in that same spirit of zoning, it is now the turn of Owerri. It is the turn of Anumudu and time for Orlu zone to “Pay Back” to Owerri the good gesture of 1999. “One good turn deserves another” he said.
Pharmacist Okay Dike enjoined Mbieri people not to allow any other candidate pilfer their votes but to package all of them for their son who is the best of the best candidates contesting governorship in Imo State today.
