Hon Henry Egwuatu Debunks Claims Of Opting Out Of Imo LG Election


Chief Henry Ikenna Egwuatu, a candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has debunked claims that he is no longer in the race for the Imo State local government election in Orlu.

This comes following claims from his opponents that he has opted out of the contest.

However, Chief Egwuatu in a statement by his media team sent to Overtnews on Tuesday denied such claims assuring his teaming supporters that he is actively in the race of the local government chairman for Orlu.

It would be recalled that the APC candidate was recently appointed as Special Assistant on mobilization to Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodimma ahead of the November 11 governorship election in the state.

Chief Egwuatu assured that the appointment will not hinder him from attending to the activities of the council election.

The statement reads in full, “I want to reinstate and assure all my faithfuls everywhere and also Ndi Orlu that I am still in the race for the Orlu local government chairmanship position. I have made a promise to you all and I won’t go back on my word.

“I understand your fears if I will still contest the election due to my recent appointment as the SA on mobilization to the executive governor of Imo State, but I want to assure you all that the appointment came with trust from our amiable governor and I know you have the same trust for me, I will do well to deliver as promised.
