The 2019 general elections would soon be upon us,  political alignments, realignments and horse trading for the futures of local governments,  states,  legislative assemblies and federal executive will be decided in 2019.

Gubernatorial wise,  a few states have moved forward since the 2015 general elections yet many more have remained in the doldrums and are yet to come  out of the woods.

The next four years is very crucial in the political history of  Nigeria but more so in a few states than others.  It is more apt in Imo State.

For all Imolites,  the question should be: Are we ready to stand tall among others in the comity of States in Nigeria?

Are we as Imolites ready to harness our God given human and material resources to our benefit?

The race to occupy the post of Executive Governor of Imo State in 2019 is nearing it\’s climax, but before final day when the electorate will make the final choice,  let\’s spare some thought to \”what is indeed the IMO of Our  Dream?\”  Among all the various gladiators jostling for this top job, who can lead us to the promised land? These are pertinent  questions that requires  answers if we as a people hope to actualise our dream and potentials.  Do we mortgage the hope and aspiration of the youths of Imo today, for the interest of few?

Do we sacrifice professionalism and competence on the alter of zoning and mediocrity?  These are the core questions that should occupy our mind as election 2019 draws yet closer.

The need for a move from political to a core professional leadership and governance is even more now than before.  Many  are currently witnessing economic growth domestically alongside great strides in human,  infrastructural and capital development have achieved thus far owing to simple fact that they\’ve somehow allowed core professionals at the helm in the last few years .
Now is the time for Imolites to take the same leap and handover it\’s affairs  with its huge economic and industrial potential to a seasoned professional whose achievement,  aspiration and dreams match perfectly with the Impression of our dreams.

Of all the contenders for the Gubernatorial  position,  none possess the pedigree, capacity to provide the much needed quality  leadership than Dr Linus Okorie. Moreover he is a rare breed among others. A paradigm shift from the usual politicians. When you think of leadership, you think of Linus Okorie from secondary,  tertiary, international level. He has inspired many. Discovering,  Developing potentials.

Dr Linus Okorie has been involved in developing leaders for decades now.
What are the profiles, achievement, antecedents of all the gladiators in the race so far?
Who is the perfect fit?
Who has the charisma?
Who has the desire?
Who is knowledgeable?
Who is capable?
Who is admirable?
Who is approachable?

The general feeling amongst people of Imo irrespective of political affiliation,  religion or bloc is for us to be well represented.

This is a task 2019 elections must deliver to the masses and it must not be sacrificed on an agreement amongst political allies in years past which is the trump card of mediocres agitating nothing but only power shift as their basis for contesting and wanting to lead come 2019. Is this zoning arrangement a law?
Has it helped our development?
Has it transformed us or provided opportunity for our citizens?
Has it brought about development?
Do we align ourselves to who should be there or rather who can deliver?
Do we align ourselves with where he comes from or how competent he is?

Dr Linus Okorie has the pedigree and all that we are yearning for and will transform IMO into a model state and his CV evokes the following:He  has a proven track record in leadership, quality service , character, capacity, antecedents, positivity, value content, fear of God,   accomplishment in human capacity development,  etc

The recent adoption and endorsement of Dr Linus Okorie by Oguta Royal Fathers was followed by Statesmen,  Elders and youths from Ekemejuru,  South East Youths Frontliner,  Imo Influencers Forum,  National Liberation Association to mention but a few is a welcome development. 

Speaking to newsmen in Owerri leadership Blogger and Founder Arise Afrika Magazine, Mr Ikechukwu Anyanwu said \”It\’s  indeed a commendable and positive step which thankfully other bodies are also towing same line\”

He noted, \” Dr Linus has refused to go into the gutter. No duel with politicians, just focus on his vision,  message, answering questions, addressing sever challenges. He addressed where Imo should and ought to be, avoiding Ad Hominem. He is well grounded and thick.
To me, Imo has made progress for someone like Linus Okorie to decide to run for Governorship come 2019. That is the kind of message and debates we  want. We should not just win because Rochas or APC is bad, but because we have something better to offer. Tell us what you are bringing to the table and not just to cast aspersions on the incumbent. To me, Linus has my heart. It doesnt matter if he loses. I am inspired. Even more inspired to dare beyond my limitations. But you know what. Impossibility is not a word to Linus. I think people will underrate this man at their own peril.\”

Linus Okorie was recently endorsed by Royal Fathers of Oguta LGA

Sequel to that,   he was also  received with open arms at Ejemekuru Village by Elders. Young hearts. Women, young and elderly.

They heard the vision. It connected with their yearnings and aspirations. Because Imo  belongs to all of us.

Let\’s join hands and establish prosperity in our darling Imo State.
