By Henry Uwalaka
The people of Ohuhu in Umuahia North have assured the All Progressive Congress APC standard bearer of Federal House of Representative, Ikwuano/Umuahia federal constituency, Hon. Martin Ikechukwu Apugo of their total support at the forthcoming election.
Ohuhu people made this known at a thank you visit by Hon. Martin Ikechukwu Apugo to Ohuhu APC for their support during the party primaries.
They said Apugo is the only candidate for Ikwuano/Umuahia federal constituency seat that has visited Ohuhu land more than three times since the race began which they said shows regard and respect for Ohuhu people.
The President General of Ihite-Ude Ofeme in Ohuhu and moderator of the event, Mr. Kenneth Nwachukwu in his speech said the Ikwuano/Umuahia Federal constituency seat is for Umuahia North which comprise Ibeku and Ohuhu, adding that Martin Ikechukwu Apugo remain the most suitable candidate who has all it takes to represent the good people of Ikwuano/Umuahia at the federal House of Representative and urged the people to vote for him.
Also speaking, the APC House of Assembly candidate for Ohuhu state constituency, Nwabueze Onwuneme described Ikechukwu Apugo as a true brother and friend of Ohuhu, adding that Ohuhu youths have benefited immensely from his youth empowerments and capacity building which he said he was one of them.
He urged the people of Ohuhu to vote for all APC candidates from presidency to House of Assembly.
Former TC Deputy Chairman, Umuuahia North, Hon. Chinedu Obilor, (a.k.a Fayose) who recently decamped from the Peoples Democratic Party PDP to APC and an Ohuhu son assured Martin Ikechukwu Apugo of his support and promised that Ohuhu will deliver him, noting that though is the turn of Ohuhu Umuahia North to produced Ikwuano/Umuahia Federal Constituency seat, but regretted that Ohuhu has no capable hand for the seat, and Ibeku should be fully supported to make sure that it does not leave Umuahia North.
He said he left PDP because the present administration led by Governor Okezie Ikpeazu has never fulfill his first term campaign promises, and do not deserve a second term.
An APC elder statesman in Ohuhu, Chief Ezinna Elias Ihedioha said Ikechukwu Apugo is a good product that sales itself, and advised Ohuhu people not to allow themselves to be deceived by telling them that is Ohuhu turn to produce Ikwuano/Umuahia Federal constituency seat, noting that there is nothing like Ohuhu turn, rather the turn of Umuahia North which Apugo is the best candidate for the seat.
In his response, Hon. Martin Ikecukwu Apugo told Ohuhu people that he will not let them dawn, assuring them that whatever that comes out as constituency projects or appointments for Umuahia North slot would be shared equally (50 and 50) between Ibeku and Ohuhu.
The occasion witnessed a football match between Ohuhu FC and Diamond FC where two Ohuhu sons were picked instantly by Hon. Martin Apugo to join Diamond Football Academy DFA.
