…As PDP primary election inches closer

Groups have continued to pledge their support to the frontline PDP aspirant for Ideato North Constituency in the Imo State House of Assembly, Franklin Ngoforo. This is coming barely a week after a major grassroots movement, Oganihu Ideato, endorsed the youthful entrepreneur.

Ideato North Youth Forum (INYF) and representatives of many market associations in Ideato North on Wednesday similarly pledged their unwavering support for the candidacy of Ngoforo at the Arondizuogu residence of the accomplished management consultant.

Recall that the PDP primary election for State House of Assembly has been scheduled for Saturday, May 7th, 2023.

Ngoforo in his remarks appreciated the groups for their support and assured them that his vision for Ideato North is to turn around the dwindling fortunes of the people.

He said the currency of the new age is human capital development, and regretted that political leaders in Ideato have failed to prioritize sustainable human capacity building for the youths.

The Arondizuogu-born philanthropist and real estate mogul also stated that the biggest asset every society has is in the minds of its people, and added that modern economy has become knowledge-driven, hence the need for Ideato youths to remain competitive globally.

“Political leadership has failed here to intervene and create the enabling environment so as to unleash the potentials of our youths. We must therefore organize ourselves, communicate with one another and begin to increasing address our challenges and lift our people out of poverty. I began this individually. I sent twenty-two of our youths to the United Kingdom for studies. You all already know about that. Just last year, I sent another sixteen to South Africa. We must now organize ourselves to achieve even more.

Ideato North is blessed. We have arable land, healthy population. And we have unbelievable talents in all sectors. All that is needed is the proper harnessing of those skills. That is the only key that can unlock our enormous potentials as a people, and that is the core essence of this project we have begun today.

“The secret of all prosperous societies is that they invest in developing the capacity of their people. They provide incentives to challenge the inventiveness of the minds of the people. As a kid in this place, we had many functional factories and industries here in Ideato North. But today they have all gone moribund. We must therefore realize the our land has not progressed over the years because of leadership failure and our inability to think home. We must therefore change that. Training our people in viable skills and making them sustainably self-reliant is a task we must achieve,” he vowed.

Earlier in his address, the president of the Forum, Ebuka Okoli, said they were motivated to back the aspiration of Ngoforo given the latter’s deep insight into the problems of the people and his sincere efforts over the years to addressing them. He pleaded with all stakeholders in Ideato North to join the project to make offer quality and result-oriented representation to the people and to make Ideato North great again.
