Mayor Lucky Igbokwe (Don Lulu) who came second during the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, governorship primaries in Abia State, has pledged support for the governorship candidate, Professor Uche Ikonne.
Mayor Igbokwe made the pledge while addressing a mamoth crowd of his supporters Wednesday at Umuawa Alocha Community Primary School Umuahia.
He thanked his supporters for their steadfast loyalty and unwavering support and debunked the rumour that he had abandoned them.
“Without you, we couldn’t have created much impact”, he said.
“We want to stress that the Ekweremekwe Campaign Team gave the contest for the ticket of our party the best shot with the backing of my ardent supporters who strongly believe in my capacity to offer selfless service to the good people of Abia”.
He said he put up a formidable fight ” even though the process was dogged by controversies over the three-man delegate list”.
Igbokwe explained that his decision to seek election was borne out of his passion to drive change and inspire the youths to a greater height and bring about a new normal.
He also denied allegations that he was sponsored by a political god-father with vested interest in the outcome of the contest, explaining that the decision to join the race was entirely his and that he bankrolled his campaign.
