The Social Democratic Party,(SDP), has issued a quit notice to the All Progressives Congress-led administration in Imo State vowing to unseat the governing party, in the coming 2019 general elections.
The party claimed that Governor Rochas Okorocha-led government had impoverished the people of the state through its alleged draconian and anti-people’s policies.
This is contained in a statement issued by the publicity secretary of SDP in Imo state, Chilos Godsent on Wednesday morning.
The statement quoted SDP as saying,”consequent upon the increasing economic hardship and political rascality perpetrated by the APC government against the good people of Imo State through its deliberate policy of economic impoverishment of the people of the state, the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Imo State has vowed to expel the sadistic APC government of Imo State through electoral defeat in 2019.
“SDP condemn in strong terms the present economic hardship ravaging the state. We discovered that sixty per cent of the average residence of Imo State now lives below three hundred Naira (N300.00) per day.
“The Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Imo State, therefore, promises to restore sanity in governance and reinstate the economic fortunes of the state where Imo State will be the economic hub of South-East Nigeria if elected to power in 2019.
The statement also stated that the leadership of the party (SDP), constituted a team in the 305 electoral wards in Imo State to shop for credible aspirants and members before the end of this year.
“The Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Imo State has constituted high powered Door-to-Door Campaign and Recruitment Team in all the three hundred and five electoral wards in Imo State with the target to recruit over two million members with electoral values before the end of December 2018.
The statement called on the well-meaning imolites to join in the movement to liberate the state from the shackles of ‘sadistic cabals’ that had held Imo in captivity.
“We call on the people of Imo State to massively join the Social Democratic Party (SDP) as the only option to Liberate the state from the shackles of sadistic cabals that has held the state in economic and political captivity since 1999.”
