Mr. Hope Uzodinma, Imo State governor, on Saturday, dumped Dr. Placid Njoku, his incumbent deputy, as he unveiled Chinyere Ihuoma Ekomaro,, as his running mate for the forthcoming gubernatorial polls.

During the unveiling ceremony in Owerri, Uzodinma, who is the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), for the November 11 election, defended his decision to discard his incumbent deputy, explaining that “the development is due to ecumenical and political permutations”.

Said he: “Our works speak for us. We have so much to campaign with. So today, we’re here to reinforce our genuine claim to reelection.

“I have picked a female deputy in the person of Lady Chinyere Ihuoma Ekomaru to add value to this ticket.

“I expect the women to appreciate this gesture as my genuine way of appreciating their innate strength to make contributions to the growth of our State”.
