Imo guber running-mate, a willing tool

Gubernatorial running-mate unveiled by Imo State governor Sen. Hope Uzodinma, Barr. (Mrs.) Chinyere Ekomaru is all raring to go.

She says she would get the many groups she belongs to, to buy into the governor’s second-term electioneering.

In an acceptance speech at her unveiling, Mrs Ekomaru, accompanied by her husband Chief Chukwuma Ekomaru, thanked the governor for finding her worthy as his running-mate and promised not to betray the confidence he reposed in her.

She said that she had been in politics for more than 40 years and assured the governor that her choice meant winning supporters from the Anglican Communion, the academia and social groups, where she belongs.

She further expressed confidence that the party would win more votes from the judiciary, where her husband and herself belong, the health-care ssector where her child belongs, and the numerous women’s social groups, where she also belongs.
