Team Nwawuba arrives Obi of Eze Akabo
Team Nwawuba also arrived the palace of Eze Evans Olilanyachukwu Njoku of Akabo to seek support.
Hon Henry Nwawuba also spoke on the gains of electing a third term member.
In his words, “I know that one of your sons is running for the same position. But I want us in MBAIKE to consider what we will gain as a Constituency when we re-elect an already working Federal Representative rather than sending a new person.
“The advantages of returning an old member who can run for a principal position far outweighs what we will gain when we send a new member who will start from scratch.”
Reacting, the Eze said,
“You have made a valid argument. All you said are Germain and we understand and agree with you.
“However, bear it in mind that when we re-elect you, our expectations from you will automatically become higher.
“Election this time is about individuals and not party. Political parties don’t have ideology and it doesn’t make sense that we continue to vote on party lines.
“I want to encourage everyone to go and only vote candidates that have the pedigree and not be blinded by party.”
