I wish to change many things about our state which I can not do outside the corridor of power.
Like Peter Obi, I want to challenge the unproductive system. We can not continue to recycle ineffective leaders who have held tight to our common wealth, especially since the last Supreme Court judgement that produced the current state government and still expect positive results.” His statement continued,”As a state, we’ve been starved of quality leadership. We are yet to experience a government that is transparent and accountable to its citizens. Those elected to serve us have turned the citizens to slave and squander their resources; enriching their family members and cronies. This has to stop. I volunteer to lead a revolution in the state through the ballot. I’m experienced, young and willing to serve.
Amadi also state that Labour Party is a fresh breathe to our political space. We’ve seen the best of previous ruling parties and it is not good enough. We have to try something new to departure from the stinking norm.
I am open to collaboration with individuals, groups and community stakeholders, to achieve this desire of improving the lives of all citizens in our communities. With your support, I believe that we can build a brighter future for ourselves and our children.
