BY FRANCIS EZEM
The All Progressives Grand Alliance APGA candidate for the Nnewi North/Nnewi South/Ekwusigo Federal Constituency for the just concluded National Assembly elections, Iju Tony Nwabunike, has expressed his deep appreciation to his teeming constituency members and supporters including maritime stakeholders for their support and prayers through the entire process.
Nwabunike, who doubles as National President of Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents ANLCA, in a statement signed by himself, noted that despite the unfavourable outcome of the election, he felt deeply honoured and a sense of appreciation not only to his immediate constituency in Anambra State but also to his professional colleagues and other maritime stakeholders.
According to him, the extent he reached in the process of the elections could not have been possible without the support, cooperation and prayers of his teeming supporters and maritime stakeholders, especially members of ANLCA.
The statement reads in part: “The Presidential and National Assembly elections may have come and gone, but I feel a sense of duty to say thank you to all of you who in one way or the other supported my ambition to be elected into the House of Representatives of the Federal Republic of Nigeria under the platform of APGA in the just concluded National Assembly elections held February 23, 2019.
“I am indeed very grateful to the Almighty GOD, for HIS care, love, abundant grace and utmost protection during this period of electoral process. My sincere gratitude also goes to my campaign organisation; Tony Iju Campaign Organisation TICO, my media team which I consider the best, my constituents who believe in my legislative agenda and worked very hard to actualise it.
“My friends within and outside my federal constituency, especially maritime industry stakeholders, my immediate family and extended family members, I thank you all for your prayers, financial and moral supports, You are all wonderful and nice people, I am immensely grateful to all of you.
“Finally, I wish to thank my diehard supporters, committee of friends and well-wishers for believing in me, I truly cannot thank you enough for all your efforts .May God almighty reward you abundantly in Jesus name, Amen. Let’s keep the spirit alive. My special love goes to my dear brothers who contested against with me in this election; Hon. Chris Emeka Azubogu, Hon J K Onyeka, Hon Asoegwu Nonso, to mention but a few, for your doggedness, issue- based campaign devoid of bitterness and rancor, thanks and God bless you all”.
He urged everyone to be hopeful and continue to support the nation’s emerging democratic culture to ensure that it takes deep root, arguing that with trust in God, the country will get it right someday and in the process lift not only the federal constituency but the entire the citizens higher.
While commending his colleagues at ANLCA for holding forth during the time of his campaigns, he urged everyone to join hands with him to build a new and modern freight forwarding practice in the interest of members, maritime industry and Nigeria’s economy.
