Mr. Alvin OCHANG, the Labour Party candidate for Ikom/Boki Federal Constituency, held a Town Hall Meeting with the people of Ikom Urban 1 at the Foresight Schools, were the people declared their total support for him, Obi-Datti and Labour Party candidates.
He said, the essence of the Town Hall Meeting was for sensitisation, to educate the people who are majority non-indigenes, to tell them that, the Peter Obi Presidency is not regional neither religious as mischief politicians want to paint the picture for selfish interest, like in the past to whip sentiments and to continue in their quest to underdevelop the country, mismanage her resources and impoverished the citizens.
“Do not be deceived any more, like in the past with politicians whipping sentiments of ethnicity, religion and region, playing mind games and there after, are gone and only to resurface during another election year with their forked tongues (lies)
“This election is not about salt, maggi and rice like in the previous years. Both the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) will come to you again, seeking your votes, with promises again, but be wise and don’t sale your conscience any longer.
According to him, an alternative to get us out of woods and doldrums is in the Labour Party.
“Labour Party has come as the only alternative for a better and new Nigeria with Obi-Datti. We’re the party to beat and they are scared, confused and running from pillar to post, blaming themselves in the process like we are seeing, currently.
“The choices are ours, If we yearn for true change and want a better and new Nigeria, that is possible with Peter Obi, Datti Baba Ahmed, my humble self, then vote Labour Party candidates across board to fast track the needed reforms.
“On this note, I urge all Support Groups to not only work for Obi-Datti ticket but 100% for Labour Party, hence, we’ll all rip the benefits, sooner. The Party is like a Church, and without the people, no Church.
“Our gathering here is divine and has been ordained by God for a day like this, to come together and educate ourselves to champion a new course for the way forward for us and future generations. I want us to know that, there’s no basis for comparison in today’s political equation;
“Currently in Nigeria, we only have two Parties; Labour Party and the rests. Peter Obi and Datti Baba Ahmed is the best thing to have happened to Nigeria, in our recent political history as a people.
“We’re labourers, and have laboured in the past for these people without our wages, therefore when they come and give you anything in the hope of inducement, ‘na our sweat, make we collect for the work we don do before’ but remember, once bitten twice shy!
A leopard cannot change it’s skin.
It’s a political revolution time through the ballot, using our permanent voter’s card PVC’s,” he said.
The cosmopolitan Ikom Urban 1 Ward, with a voice vote, went agog with screams:
“Na Labour Party We Know.
“Alvin OCHANG our Representative!
“Na Peter Obi and Datti we go vote!
Now, na Papa, Mama and Pikin be the answer!
