LABOUR PARTY RAISES ALARM OVER STATE OF IMO ECONOMY

Labour party raises alarm over state of Imo economy


Owerri—The governorship candidate of the Labour Party, LP,   Ikechukwu Joseph Ukegbu  yesterday, claimed that many had been impoverished in the state, due to the mismanagement of the economy under Governor Rochas Okorocha.

Ukegbu said this during the unveiling of his governorship manifesto,  at the party’s secretariat along MCC, road in Owerri, alongside  the various candidates of the party and its  leadership  led by Cyril Akujobi.

He described  Okorocha’s administration as a government that has not done the needed services to the people of the state  to address their numerous challeges.

Ukegbu said   the challenges facing Imo people would be addressed with a three- point agenda which he captured as “AIR” “Agriculture, Infrastructure and Reorientation”

According to Ukegbu, “My experience  constitute the major plank of my vision for  Imo state if I emerge as the governor   in 2019.

“My vision is for a holistic movement that will encompass all  sectors to feel the impact of the dividends of democracy.

“The middle class no longer exists due to bad governance. I am bound to re-estabilish the middle class as it is the only forward for the people and the economy. It is the most practical way to demonstrate the true meaning of democracy
