As the 2019 general elections draw closer, a lot of political permutations and predictions are playing out.
Many political parties are going the extra mile to ensure they achieve set desired results.
Just like in other parts of the country, political activities, campaigns, propagandas and gimmicks in Imo State are getting more intense by the day, as the people are being bombarded by campaign promises, manifestos and intentions.
But it might not be that easy for politicians to hoodwink the people this time around, as they now possess political savvy and have become more politically conscious, courtesy of programmes and engagements organised by political stakeholders in the state.
So, the people are expected to rise above sentiments and elect credible individuals in 2019, though much consideration will also be given to political platforms.
One political party that appears to have many hurdles to cross in its bid to clinch power in the state, especially the gubernatorial election, is the All Progressives Congress (APC), though other major parties, such as the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Accord and Social Democratic Party (SDP) also have their own challenges.
