Onyedikachi S. Obijiaku, the only House of Representative candidate from the same Ideato South LGA with Rochas who ran against Rochas’ former Permanent and political surrogate Paschal Obi of AA for the Ideato North and South Federal Constituency seat has sent a Congratulatory letter to Emeka Ihedioha of the PDP on his gubernatorial victory
Obijiaku who was kidnapped at some point during the national Assembly race hails from Umuobom in Ideato South LGA and was the overwhelming favourite candidate of the masses in Ideato South, but for the heavy arm-twisting, intimidation ad rigging by Rochas and his fake police, army and AA thugs
In a copy of the congratulatory letter exclusively obtained by Akelicious, Obijiaku described Ihedioha’s victory as “….well deserved and a great relief to all Imolites irrespective of party affiliation…especially those like me who hail from the same Ideato South LGA with the outgoing governor and have seen and born firsthand the brunt of his highhandedness and lack of tolerance to dissenting opinions.”
Obijiaku of the SDP who also doubled as the Southeast Coordinator of IMPACT-4-ATIKU, a multipartisan coalition that sought to galvanize support across party lines for the presidential ambition of Alh Atiku Abubakar assured Ihedioha of his support and readiness to work with the incoming Governor to “…move IMO state away from the era of economic backwardness, political thuggery and intimidation, executive and financial brigandage, iberiberism and familiocracy to an era of economic prosperity, peace and all-inclusive governance.
His Federal constituency is one on those slated for rerun by INEC
