The Imo State Capital, Owerri, first witnessed the mammoth crowd that accompanied Dr Sam Ifeanyi Amadi to declare for the gubernatorial ticket of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA on April 24, 2018. To Abuja he was in the morning, September 4, 2018 to pick his nomination form at the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA National secretariat, in a colourfully grand ceremony where he also addressed a World Press conference, flanked by a host of party faithful.
It will be recalled that Imo state produced an APGA governor for the state in 2011 (seven years ago), but Owelle Rochas Okorocha who rode on its ticket to become the governor, quickly aligned and joined the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Harvard trained international consultant and electricity regulation expert, Dr. Sam Amadi made his intentions known to reclaim the state for the people and their party, at a time the APC governor is often on the junket rounds with President Buhari to parts of the globe while changing deputies like handkerchiefs in a destabilizing manner.
He becomes the first aspirant to pick the governorship form in Nigeria under the platform of APGA with the intention of being the occupant of Douglas House, Owerri in 2019.
