”Good Evening Umu Isu,

Peace of God be unto all of us now and forever.

Yesterday, Sunday 16th April 2023 will remain a day history was made in Amurie Omanze and Isu LGA as INEC willfully and correctly declared me as the winner of the tightly contested Isu State Constituency Seat.

This will however bring the agitation of the good people of Amurie Omanze to an end in their quest to have a shot at the Imo State House of Assembly like her sister communities in the LGA.

For a greater number of Isulites, it’s a prayer answered having yearned for a BETTER LIFE as impressed upon them by our Mantra.

And for me personally, it’s a jinx broken for my 3-times serial aspiration to the State Constituency Seat. It’s also a confirmation of the challenges that lie ahead and my resolve to alleviate them through purposefull legislation and thorough fulfilment of my campaign promises as contained in my manifesto.

For family, friends and political colleagues, it’s a dream come true for the truest definition of a public servant and a God fearing individual to mount the saddle that the people can rejoice. 

Furthermore, I want to specially appreciate Barr. KENNETH IWUNZE(APGA), Barr. EMEKA OZURUMBA(APC), Surv. OKEY UZOHUO(LP) and Candidates of other Parties who made the contest a serious affair and reawakened the consciousness of our people to Elect, rather than Select.

We all won afterall.

I’m a team player like you all know and I pledge to work closely with all Candidates I contested with to harmonise  their positive blueprints to have an all inclusive Isu LGA.

Being a political contest, all Candidates used means soothing to them to prosecute it as winning is the only focus.

For me, I appeal to all I wronged in the course of it to find a place in their hearts to forgive me, if you offended me, I have forgiven you and also plead God’s ultimate forgiveness as you probably didn’t know what you  were doing.

All being said, I want to salute the resilience of Isu people who stood tall to express their burning desire to have me serve them.

Isu peoples unwavering doggedness on the 18th day of March, 2023 and 15th day of April, 2023 is the finest testament of the true change we really clamour for.

I won’t take Isulites for granted.

On this note, I plead for total peace, understanding and genuine reconciliation in our communities across party nomenclatures, that we can all heal perfectly and completely of the bruises and pains we bear.

I will make physical efforts in no distant time to reach out to all who are still sobbing and bear different degrees of grudge.

My effort and time will heal them all I pray.

Finally and unbeknownst to us, those sterling efforts of ours announced Isu to the world as a people of truth, faith and value and my representation will timeously reflect those core principles the world saw in us, so help me God.

I’m grateful to Isu PDP who trusted me with the ticket serially for 3 times, other parties and Isu  people in general.


Hon. Osakwe Abiazie Modestus ,

House Member Elect,Isu State Constituency 

Imo State,Nigeria.
