But the Speaker, Goodluck Opiah, has scaled the partyâ€™s hurdles and will contest in the polls for the third term to represent Ohaji/Egbema State Constituency.
Other lawmakers that lost their bid to seek re-election into the House are Mike Iheanetu (Aboh-Mbaise), Bede Eke (Ngor-Opkala) and Ifeanyi Agwu (Ehime-Mbano). At press time, the results for two lawmakersâ€™ seats were still pending.
Meanwhile, the Chief of Staff to the Governor, Emma Ohakim, has enjoined Nigerians to participate in the proposed votersâ€™ registration and cast their votes for their preferred candidates.
He spoke at the 2011 Mgbidi Crusade with the theme â€œWhom the King Delights to Honourâ€ held at the Chosen Secondary School Ground, Oguta Road, Mgbidi, organised by the Lordâ€™s Chosen Charismatic Revival Ministries, which began last Sunday.
Ohakim, who represented the governor at the event, specifically appealed to Imo indigenes to register and vote during the polls. He admonished politicians in the country to fear God.
The governorâ€™s aide said: â€œWe have come to realise that man alone cannot do it. The issue of governance goes beyond a physical thing. It is spiritual because as a governor, you govern the whole state. You must be able to be in charge and to do so, you must have the authority that comes from God. So, I want to advise that people in similar positions should embrace Godâ€.
On the governorâ€™s chances of being re-elected, the Chief of Staff said: â€œHis chances are very bright because one is judged by the results of his performances. What the governor has been able to do so far in Imo State is very glaring. The report card is quite clear. The people of the state are very happy with him. With the support of the people and their prayers, I think the future is very brightâ€.
