Let's rally around Ihedioha to rebuild Imo

By Chigozie Igbo Jr I have long waited for a time like this, to pour out my mind, on the sham which ended today in our dear state Imo, which many people saw as a government. The happenings in the last 8 years have shown Ndi Imo, that its proper we become actors in the political endeavors of the state, rather than being passive, which contributed 100% to Rochas Okorocha pocketing the common wealth of Ndi Imo, while we looked the other way.

A government that destroyed the hegemony that bonded us as Ndi Imo, while we all kept quite. Today, H.E Emeka Ihedioha will be taking up the up hill
