“He has also used his influence in the society to secure employment for many graduates, in Imo state, given scholarships to students, empowered men, Youths and women. Odiuko is known for one special thng- he does not promise what he can not fulfill but can give more than what he promises. In fact, he is a man of his word,’ Pastor Ekene testified.

The residents who confided in our correspondent said their people had already made up their minds to vote for Peter Obi of Labour party for president and Barrister Chima Anthony Odiuko of APGA for senate Owerri zone.
“Odiuko is a good man with a good heart. As an Abuja-based lawyer, most of our oppressed people in Abuja have received one form of assistance or the other from him. He does not ask if you are from his local government nor Owerri zone, all he knows is that you are from Imo state. I think we the people of Owerri zone will enjoy him as our senator,’ Bernard Osuji, an indigene of a community in Owerri Municipal council said.

“Based on Character and performance, Odiuko is the best answer,” Chimaobi Isioma from Owerri west said.
A visit to Owerri North, our correspondent discovered that the people are not happy even though the Local government had produced senators and other Representatives in the national Assembly.
“We have senator of Owerri North extraction but see how deplorable our roads are. There is no sentiment this time, no consideration of big name or political party this time. They have failed us. We are supporting the APGA senatorial Candidate Barrister Chima Anthony. I believe he will not disappoint us,” Obinna from Owerri North stated.
