Jude Ejiogu and a host of others in attendance.
Owelle Okorocha maintained that he would not rest until Imo is made better noting that “this is the government of the masses, by the masses and for the masses.  I will never choose or impose any candidate on APC but will allow the masses to make their choice.”
He commended the Party stalwarts in Owerri Federal Constituency for their doggedness but warned the aspirants against destructive propaganda but should rather present their work plan to the people adding that only those approved by majority of the people will be accredited for primaries coming up in October.
Governor Okorocha stressed that the bulk of his achievements in the past 3 years lies in the actualization of ‘Freedom’ for Imo people from what he called ‘the Party of oppressors to the Party of the masses’ and ushering them into greatness and achievements.  “The chain has been broken and the people are free; Imo children no longer pay school fees, kidnapping is gone, no more traffic congestion, intimidation is gone because the chain is broken! Owelle stated.
He assured Imo people that a vote for APC is a vote for sustainability of free education, Community Government Council, more infrastructural development, good road network, transformation of more rural areas to modern cities, quality healthcare delivery, enhanced agriculture and many other dividends of democracy already achieved in the State.
The Governor used the occasion to inform Nigerians to disregard the rumour from political opponents that APC is a party of Boko Haram pointing out that it is the only Party that seeks for the needed change in the leadership of Nigeria and to give the people a sense of belonging.
Presenting the Aspirants to Governor Okorocha, the Deputy Governor, Prince Eze Madumere who noted that APC is the fastest growing Party in Nigeria, thanked Governor Okorocha for establishing the Freedom Square and other laudable projects in the State. 
He assured him of a formidable team in Owerri Zone that would attract numerous supporters from their wards to join the moving train of the Rescue Mission in making Imo better.
Adding his voice, the Chief of Staff Chief  and Commissioner for special Duties who is also the APC Apex leader in the Owerri Federal Constituency, Sir Jude Ejiogu thanked the Governor for coming to wipe away the tears of Imo people while he pledged the peoples’ continued allegiance to the Party.
Speaking earlier, the Chairman of APC in Owerri Federal Constituency, Apostle Hillary Ihebom said APC has come to stay in Imo State and assured the Governor that they would maintain their promise to stand by him and will not do anything that will bring down the Party irrespective of oppositions. 
Highlights of the occasion were the public presentation of the APC Aspirants vying for political positions at the Local, State and Federal government levels in the Constituency and a march past by supporters.
