Abakaliki, – Mr Felix Igboke, APC candidate for Ohaozara/Onicha/Ivo Federal Constituency, has pledged to build more people-oriented projects for the constituents if elected in the 2023 general polls.
Igboke made the promise when stakeholders from the constituency paid him a solidarity visit on Thursday in Abakaliki.
The Rep candidate added that he would focuse on the constituents’ needs at ensuring that he represented the people very well, if elected.
“I have promised not to fail my people. I am going to do my best to represent them well; I pray that the light will not go off our hand. These are my people, they have come to throw their support for me.
“Their coming has given me more courage, so many have come to show love to me and this also indicates that our party remains unique to win in all position, from bottom to the top.
“We are going to consolidate and contribute our quota on improving the dividend of democracy,” Igboke said.
Mr Ifesinachi Odii, who led the stakeholders, said the visit was to formally endorse Igboke as the APC House of Representatives Candidate for our constituency in 2023.
Odii said the support was necessary due to his numerous achievements during his administration as Chairman of Onicha Local Government Area of the state.

Odii, popularly known as “Odis Global”, was an APC Candidate for the Constituency in the 2019 elections but lost to the PDP.
