Nigerian Journalist & Former CPS To Okezie Ikpeazu, Enyinnaya Appolos Declares Interest In Elective Political Office, Set To Run For House Of Assembly In Abia State, Says “YES, I AM RUNNING”.

Mr. Appolos.

Former Chief Press Secretary to the Governor of Abia State, Mr. Enyinnaya Emmanuel Appolos, has declared interest in running for an election into the House of Assembly to represent the good people of Obingwa West state constituency in the state.

Appolos who has been, Chief Press Secretary, Special Adviser on Media and a former Personal Assistant to Governor Okezie Ikpeazu is from Isiko village in Obingwa Local Government Area of Abia State,  a graduate of Mass Communication from Federal Polytechnic Oko, Anambra State and has over a decade experience in the newsroom.

As a journalist, he is the Chairman of Rethink Media Network Ltd, owners of Enyimba 93.5FM, Aba, the commercial nerve centre of Abia State and he is poised to go beyond the average to make the lives of his constituents better by far if elected.

He says, “I am an aspirant, running for the position of a legislator in the Abia State House of Assembly, to represent Obingwa West State Constituency in the 2023 general elections, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in ward 3 in Obingwa, which consists of six political wards; namely Ward 1, Ward 2, Ward 3, Ward 4, Ward 5, and Ward 6.

It is my constitutional right and personal decision as a Nigerian citizen, to seek an elective position as a congressman in the state legislature, to represent my people, and understanding the yearnings and demands of my people in the state, which is the reason I’m asking for their support to represent them in the parliament. They also know that I am eminently qualified to be the steward of their trust and mandate in the Legislative arm of government in Abia State, haven consulted widely with my people, the leaders, and stakeholders in Uhie Constituency including the PDP family in Obingwa and beyond.

Knowing that the elections begin with the party’s delegate election, which will decide the candidate of the party at the general election, I have met and consulted with the delegates that will vote at the party’s congress. I will continue with my appeal and consultations with them until I am elected the candidate of the party by the special grace of God. 

I have also consulted my fellow aspirants in the race. I have consulted with Hon. A.C Thomas Nkoro, Hon Amaechi Hanson, Hon. Prince Obinna Nwabiaraije. I have also met and consulted my brother, Elder Erondu Uchenna Erondu Jnr, though he has not declared his interest in the race. I will be meeting with my brother Hon. Prince Anaba, chief Chihozie Ubani-Ukoma, and Hon. Walterter, soon.

For me, politics is a game of interest, it's either personal or community interest. Every adult is constitutionally free to associate and express themselves within the ambit of the law, and not to infringe on the right of others.

To this extent, I will not be offended if any of my brothers either in the family or Isiko chooses not to support my ambition. I will also not begrudge any who goes to support any of my co-aspirants. 

To all my friends and supporters, my aspiration does not call for an attack, insult, or abuse of anybody, not even any of my opponents. We must see social media as a medium to expand and expound our campaigns, and not to insult, attack or abuse anyone who fails to agree with us.

We must remain focused and discuss issues that will help us win. When we will at the primaries, many of those who are not supporting us now, will surely support us.

On my path, I will not hire or engage anyone to insult or abuse. My team and I, together with our yeoman will use every logical means and medium within our reach to campaign for support. 

My interest is to contribute towards the advancement of a better economic and social well-being of our people, and I am seriously focused on this, and will not be distracted.

My team and I are putting finishing touches on the materials needed for our campaigns. For now, this is my way of letting you know that I am in the race for Obingwa West State Constituency for the Abia State House of Assembly, 2023.
