A renowned socio-political and ethnic group, Umuigbo Progressive Network (UPN), has urged the people of Imo North Senatorial District to troop out to vote Senator Benjamin Uwajumogu in the re-run election scheduled to hold on Saturday March 9.
Recall that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had on Tuesday declared the senatorial election in Imo North National Assembly election in the senatorial district inconclusive due to alleged violence, ballot box snatching and other irregularities.
The group, in a statement signed by the National Co-ordinator, Barr Oscar Obi, KSM, appealed to electorates in Okigwe North Senatorial district to vote Senator Uwajumogu as the fate of an Igbo Senate Presidency is dependent on his re-election.
“This is a special appeal from the entire Igbo region to the good of people of Okigwe to vote Senator Uwajumogu, so as to get the Senate Presidency. We believe the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), is ready to make an Igbo man the Senate President, but this cannot happen if we do not re-elect a ranking Senator of the party – Senator Uwajumogu to represent Imo North Senatorial District in the National Assembly.
“Re-electing Senator Uwajumogu will mean having something more than a governor in our district,” he emphasized.
