ACCEPTANCE BY DISTINGUISHED SENATOR HOPE ODIDIKA UZODIMMA. PROTOCOLS


FELLOW PARTY MEMBERS AND ESTEEMED IMO COMPATRIOTS,


I BRING YOU ALL CALVARY GREETINGS IN THE NAME OF OUR LORD.

LET ME START BY THANKING GOD THE GIVER OF LIFE AND GOOD HEALTH FOR MAKING US SEE THIS DAY;
LET ME ALSO THANK OUR PARTY LEADERS BOTH AT THE NATIONAL LEVEL AND THE STATE LEVEL.
THE QUEST FOR THE TICKET OF OUR DEAR PARTY HAS GENERATED MORE ATTENTION AND NEWS, PERHAPS BECAUSE OUR PEOPLE LOOK UP TO US AS THE PARTY IN POWER AT BOTH THE FEDERAL AND STATE LEVELS, TO SHOW THE LIGHT IN OUR RENEWED BID TO REPOSITION OUR GREAT STATE ON THE PATH OF STEADY GROWTH, SOCIAL SECURITY AND FREE ENTERPRISE.

IT IS THEREFORE WITH ALL SENSE OF HUMILITYAND PROFOUND RESPONSIBILITY THAT I ACCEPT TO BEAR THE FLAG OF OUR PARTY,THE ALL PROGRESSIVE PARTY (APC) FOR THE FORTHCOMING GUBERNATORIAL ELECTION IN IMO STATE.

I HAVE NO DOUBT IN MY MIND, THAT THE BATTLE AHEAD WILL NOT BE AN EASY ONE, BUT WITH GOD ON OUR SIDE AND WITH THE ABSOLUTE COOPERATION OF ALL LOYAL PARTY FAITHFULS AND INDEED THE MAJORITY OF OUR CITIZENS WHO DESIRE THE GOOD LIFE, WE SHALL TRIUMPH.

NEEDLESS TO RE EMPHASIZE THAT THE ORIGINAL PICTURE OF IMO STATE AS ENVISIONED BY OUR PAST AND PRESENT HEROES, THE MBAKWES, THE ECHERUOS, THE ENWEREMS, THE NZERIBES AND SO FORTH, IS NOT A MIRAGE OR A MYSTERY TO ACHIEVE. IT IS INDEED MORE REALIZEABLE NOW THAN EVER BEFORE, WITH THE QUANTUM LEAP IN HUMAN AND TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCEMENTS OF WHICH WE ARE WELL ENDOWED.

INDEED, I MAKE NO CLAIMS TO BEING THE BEST THAT IMO CAN BOAST OF. I DO NOT PRETEND TO HAVING ANY MAGIC WAND THAT WILL WIPE AWAY ALL OUR SUFFERINGS IN ONE DAY.
BUT I ONLY HAVE ONE THING WHICH I BELIEVE IS ALL WE NEED TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE. I HAVE GOD AND I KNOW THAT WITH THE CONSISTENT AND UNFLINCHING APPLICATION OF GOD GIVEN LAWS OF EQUITY AND GOOD CONSCIENCE, THE NATURAL OUTCOMES MUST BE GOOD GOVERNANCE WHICH IN TURN WILL LEAD TO GOOD POLICIES AND ACTIONS THAT WILL IMPACT POSITIVELY ON OUR PEOPLE AND THEIR ENVIRONMENT.
THIS IS NOT ROCKET SCIENCE. IT IS DOABLE, ONCE WE MAKE GOD THE PILLAR AND IMO PEOPLE THE TARGET.

RESEARCH HAS SHOWN THAT ALL OVER THE WORLD ESPECIALLY IN THE ADVANCED CIVILISATIONS, GOOD LEADERS DO NOT NECESSARILY HAVE TO KNOW IT ALL, THEY SIMPLY NEED TO BE WISE ENOUGH TO LOOK FOR THE BEST IN EACH FIELD , BE HUMBLE ENOUGH TO ACCEPT THE ADVISE OF THOSE WHO KNOW BEST, AND THEN BE COURAGEOUS ENOUGH TO APPLY THE WILL THAT IS NEEDED TO TRANSLATE GOOD IDEAS INTO GOOD PROGRAMS FOR DEVELOPMENT TO OCCUR SEAMLESSLY.

ONCE AGAIN, I THANK EVERYONE WHO STOOD BY US IN THIS LENGHTY STRUGGLE, ESPECIALLY MY FAMILY AND KINSMEN.
I SALUTE THE PEOPLE OF ORU EAST,MY PRIMARY CONSTITUENCY FOR THEIR UNQUENCHABLE CONFIDENCE IN THEIR SON, WHICH I CONTINUE TO FEEL, IRRESPECTIVE OF PARTISAN AFFILIATIONS.

I SALUTE MY CO CONTESTANTS, FROM ALL THE FACTIONS, I OFFER A HAND OF FELLOWSHIP FOR US ALL TO UNITE AS WE GO INTO THE FINAL MATCH, AGAINST THE REAL OPPONENTS.

WITH GOD ON OUR SIDE, VICTORY IS ASSURED.

IMO WILL RISE AGAIN

LONG LIVE APC
LONG LIVE IMO STATE
LONG LIVE NIGERIA


THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS US ALL
