2015: Okigwe Christian Youths Endorse Speaker Uwajumogu

By Emeka Ahaneku
Ahead of the march 28 senatorial election, Okigwe Christians have openly endorsed the Speaker, Imo state House of Assembly and the senatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Rt. Hon. Benjamin Uwajumogu.
The Christian Youth Initiative for change, the umbrella body of young Christians, who are development conscious in the zone, while declaring their support in an interview with newsmen during a sensitization programme on the need for peaceful elections, organized by its leadership in Ehime Mbano local government, stated that it was imperative for Christians to support a practicing Christian who is known for his pure dedication and devotion to the things of God and service to humanity.
Chairman of the group, Pastor James Nwokeke, while speaking on behalf of the group, hinged the group’s support for Uwajumogu on what he called unprecedented achievements of the Speaker since he came on board in 2011, adding that his performance so far has undoubtedly transformed Okigwe zone beyond their expectations.
They lauded the Speaker for the fulfillment of promises he made to Ihitte-Uboma people during the 2011 elections and for building a befitting house for God.
The Christian leaders particularly commended the Speaker for attracting three institutions of higher learning, which according to him had eluded the zone before Uwajumogu came on board.
He said: “We all know the Christian background of Uwajumogu, who is the Trustee of Saviour Evangelical Ministries, but unfortunately cannot say same concerning others who are jostling to represent our zone in the senate”.
“Because of stories we are hearing about candidates, who are said to be occultic, we are therefore calling on all candidates to declare the faith they claim to profess”, he maintained.
The chairman further insisted that the group was apolitical, but owes its members a duty to educate them on the need to vote wisely on peaceful polls.
