Ozalla community gifts Enugu APGA gov’ship candidate branded car, pledges total support
The All Progressives Grand Alliance gubernatorial candidate for Enugu State, Frank Nweke Jr, received a boost on Saturday, February 4, 2023, as his home community of Ozalla hosted him to a reception and donated a branded Toyota Sienna in support of his campaign.
Receiving him at St. Paul’s Primary School field were thousands of Ozalla indigenes who, according to the Okeifufe Campaign Organization, showed their support with dancing, singing and masquerade performances, including the presentation of an Ofo by Agadi Iyiagboku after charging Nweke to remain true to his nature and promises to Enugu State.
In his welcome address, Pharmacist Cyril Aninwike said the crowd that gathered was an evidence of the honour accorded to Nweke in his hometown.
“Frank Nweke Jr is truly an illustrious son of Ozalla and he is also the most qualified and competent candidate in this race. His administration will restore integrity and excellence to chase mediocrity out of Enugu State.
“So, it is with one voice that the entire Ozalla pledges absolute support for him to become the next Governor of Enugu State”, the report from the campaign office read.
Presenting a branded Toyota Sienna, a Sound System and other items to support his campaign efforts across the state, Chief Okwudili Chianeke said the community was pleased to be a part of the history to be made in Enugu State under the leadership of Nweke.
Responding to their show of support, Nweke thanked his people for the consistent and unflinching support from the moment he shared his intentions with them.
“From the moment I was certain of God’s backing for this journey and came to you, my kinsmen and my people, you have remained steadfast with your support. I thank you all, ndi Ozalla both those at home and those abroad, those who call me, those who send funds, those who send prayers. I thank everybody and ask that God bless Ozalla. May God bless you all”, he said.
He assured the people of his preparedness for the task ahead, thanking them for their continued support until his victory at the polls.
Nweke went further to urge the people to take advantage of the final day of PVC collection and ensure everyone who was yet to retrieve theirs did so.
Among notable sons and daughters of Ozalla present at the event were High Chief Friday Afam Ani, Okorie Emmanuel, Barr. Andrew Nwani, who coordinated the memorable event, and Chief Ikenna Okafo, who in a vote of thanks declared that he was proud to be from Ozalla.
The reception and donation comes after a series of support activities through the campaign season including the presentation of the sacred Ofo by the elders in the community in September, 2022.
