Nwosu, a governorship aspirant, said, “I therefore declare you inaugurated and task you to go to the grassroots to market the ideals of our party.
“This campaign council will coordinate all our campaigns after the primary elections in September.
“The task of ensuring that President Muhammadu Buhari is re-elected is number one. We will ensure that this campaign council produces the next three senators of the state, 10 House of Representatives members and 27 House of Assembly members.
“This campaign council will also produce me as the next governor of Imo State.”
Nwosu also inaugurated the coordinators of the campaign council in the 27 local government areas of the state, and charged them to raise 21 persons per polling booth in all the LGAs of the state.
