“When you made me your governor I did not disappoint you from the beginning to the final stages. These are challenging and tough times. They want to discourage us but it will not happen.
“I will keep my eyes on the ball. We must keep our eyes on the ball. The ball is the governorship of Imo state. My eyes will firmly remain on the governorship of Imo state. We are already there,” he said.

“The far-reaching resolutions of the 2017 summit which centred on a resolve for the unity of the parts of Owerri zone, a common front and irrevocable commitment to the election of an Imo Governor of Owerri Zone extraction continue to be sacrosanct. It further resolved to collaborate with sister zones of Orlu and Okigwe to enthrone sanity, equity and good governance in Imo state,” he said.
