By Chigozie Igbo Jr The forthcoming 2019 general Elections in Imo state will be historical, as it will be the greatest test of our collective judgement as Ndi Imo, and posterity will not forgive us, if we make the same mistake we made in 2011, which was born out of sentiment rather than conscience and due diligence. Ndi Imo presently, have learnt their lessons in a very bitter way occasioned by the misrule and impunity of the present government, in the state which has made governance a caricature of the highest order, and a sore point for students of history and philosophy.

President Buhari had months ago named Transport Minister, Rotimi Amaechi as Director General of his Presidential Campa

Dr Chidolue, made this known at an interactive media chat,with newsmen at his country home in Nnewi yesterday.

According to him, "before and during the primary election,  APGA refused to produce, l

He stressed that he called the physically challenged to come and celebrate with them,so as to make them understand that they are not abandoned and forgotten. "We,
