The 2010 Nwangele LGA Executive Chairman, Hon Chief Chukwukere Ezikeil (Ogbuhereuzo of Amaigbo), popularly known as ‘I Know This Man’, has collapsed his PDP Structure at Nwangele to APC.
This move was taken after he mobilized and lavishly hosted the Grassroot Nwangele Critical Leaders of PDP Decampees, last Saturday, at the Rockview Hotel, Owerri.
Chukwukere, in an interview with journalists, said he led his PDP Structure to APC because of imposition and undemocratic processes in PDP which he frowned was reintroduced.
“I left PDP because of these reasons: PDP did a Congress and it was not properly conducted coupled with serial discrimination at the party. Yes, I see politics as politics of the people, not a One-Man-Show. There is no permanent enemy or friend, but permanent interest.
“As ALGON Rep of 2010, I’m under obligation to advance the cause of ALGON to the Promised Land, a struggle we started 9years ago. In this struggle, Governor Hope Uzodimma was one of the highest financiers of ALGON. So, is it now that he is Governor that he will abandon ALGON? We are joining the Governor to help advance Imo beyond how we met it”.
Chukwukere, who was the former PDP Nwangele Reconciliation Committee and Member, State PDP Campaign Council, noted that having worked with Sen Uzodimma and delivered him in 2011 and 2015 as Senator, said he is not his political enemy, but friend and admirer.
“Because Uzodimma has a large heart who does not discriminate, a generosity which reflected in his appointment. I’m glad to have joined Uzodimma to also help advance the cause of Nwangele people, hence I lavishly hosted the Nwangele Grassroot Stakeholders at the Rockview Hotel, Owerri, on Saturday, where we collapsed our PDP structures to APC”.
Some of the Nwangele Critical Grassroot Stakeholders who were at the meeting anchored by I Know This Man are: Chief Uzoma Onuoha, Chief Mbamara Melody, former TC Chairman, Nwangele, Rt Hon Sabastin Anyado, former Leader, Nwangele Legislative Council, Rt Hon Sam Ugwokaegbe, former Leader of the Council, Hon Chidubem Ekwem, 2010 Councillor for Dim-na-nume Ward, Hon Chijioke Ihetu, former Councillor and host of others.
However, I Know This Man, commended Hon Amarachi Iwuanyanwu, Member representing Nwangele State Constituency in the Imo State House of Assembly, for his effective representation.
“That is why every Nwangele indigene is happy to have him as their representative. The way he represents his people across the party line has been encouraging and he is good”.
