2019: I’m prepared to bring Imo out of abject poverty

A Mass Communication graduate of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, and a gubernatorial in Imo State in the 2019 election, George Emenalo, popularly called Boy George (BG), on Sunday, in Lagos State, said he is optimistic of becoming the next executive governor of the state.

Emenalo, who has just joined the governorship race in Imo State, disclosed this in a chat with newsmen.

According to the 51-year old contestant, his inspiration of ruling the state come 2019 was his confidence in God, and stated that his mandate was for him to liberate the people of the state from their sufferings.

His words, “The situation in Imo State has made it compulsory for honest men with the fear of God to rise up and pick up the mantle of leadership.

“It is God’s time in Imo; I do not have the financial muscle like some of the other aspirants but with God and the people, the impunity in the state will come to an end in 2019”.

Emenalo said that his decision to join the race was influenced by agitations from the people for God fearing men with good reputation to take over the leadership of the state.

He further said, “The issues emanating from governance in the state; sufferings by all and sundry, non payment of staff salaries, neglect of the rural dwellers are some of the reasons why there must be a shift in leadership.

He maintained that if the people of Imo do not get it right in 2019, they may remain in abject poverty and sufferings for a long time to come.

The governorship aspirant said, “If elected, I will ensure that past leaders, who have used the state’s resources for personal use are brought to book.

“The fight against corruption must be extended to states and their leadership, including past governors, commissioners and council chairmen among others”.

On the platform he intended to use for the election, Emenalo said that he would announce it later.

“I am currently talking with some political parties and as soon as we reach a decision, I will make the outcome known”, he said.
