Mr. Obeji Linus, who is the chairman of the association stated on behalf of the entire millers and gave his assurance to Mrs. Uzoamaka Nwifuru, wife of the guber candidate on her sensitization visit to the company in Abakaliki, with her entourage for the husband’s victory at the polls.
“This is more like a gathering of saints for victory to the Gubernatorial Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), R.t Hon. Francis Ogbonna Nwifuru.
“Before this time, we have already adopted him as our sole Candidate for the governorship position, because he is a young man full of life, experience, and capacity as a man of the people.” He said.
Obeji expressed confidence that Nwifuru would perform wonderfully well as a youthful Governor who understands the plight of young people, and as a once downtrodden who could relate to the experiences of the poor.
“We believe in him as a person who would understand our pains, he was once poor and he will know how to tackle the challenges in the rice mill, he is the only person that can solve our problems, that’s why we are adopting him“. he added.
The wife of the APC gubernatorial candidate, Mrs. Uzoamaka Nwifuru had earlier called on the people to vote with a conscience while considering peace, unity, fairness, and justice.

The function was well attended by dignitaries including the Abakaliki council chairman, Mr. Stephen Ebere Nwogha who urged the electorates to come out en mass and vote for all APC Candidates on election day.
