Hope Reality Movement members at a strategic meeting
As the elections for the governorship and state houses of assembly come in a matter of hours, political parties and stakeholders in the fray have retreated from the campaign fields to tactically strategise for the main event holding on Saturday, March 9, 2019 in all the states of the federation and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.
One group that is not leaving any stone unturned nor anything to chance in that respect is the Hope Reality Movement (HRM) which is driving the bull work for garnering victory for the Imo State gubernatorial candidate on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Hope Uzodimma.
HRM under the leadership of its coordinator, Mr. Vitalis Chikere has since the build-up to the polls, lounged into series of activities including capacity building, sensitization and mobilization to ensure victory for their choice candidate, Uzodimma.
This has taken the movement to the major markets, remote village squares and kindred in the densely populated communities in Ahiazu-Mbaise Local Government Area of Imo State with the Credo of APC being the most needed party to birth the next governor of the state in the person of Senator Uzodimma.
While addressing members of the Hope Reality Movement in its last minute sensitization gathering in Amuzi on Friday, March 8, 2019, Mr. Chikere harped on the need for every member to as much as possible win at least a convert to vote for Hope Uzodimma and all the state assembly candidates to be fielded by APC on Saturday, pointing out that victory for all the party’s flag bearers would spell prosperity for Mbaise and the entire Imo State at large.
He further urged them to be steadfast and eschew sentiment in their choice of who to vote for on the basis of who comes from where, but focus on the candidate who will deliver the desired and needed democracy dividends to “our people and the environment in terms of infrastructural projects.
Several speakers in their various responses, pledged to deliver APC and its candidates as the ruling party in Imo State at the Saturday’s elections, stating that they well understood that it would spell better prospect for the Mbaise people and Imolites in general.
In the light of the strenuous efforts of HRM in the last couple of weeks to guarantee the emergence of Senator Hope Uzodimma as the next governor of Imo State, with the large support of its numerous members across Mbaise, it would appear that it is hope versus some hapless and hopeless governorship candidates contesting on the platforms of the other political parties.
The coordinator of HRM, Mr. Chikere said this much when he signposted: “Mark my words, Hope will win the governorship of Imo State; there is no gain saying that it will be otherwise”.
