The Governor stressed that the outcome of any census impacts on everyone negatively or positively. He added that “If you don’t want to be cheated, the time to do it is now”.
He advised every Imo citizen irrespective of party affiliate, to be fully involved in the civic exercise as nonchalant *attitudes* will amount to being *undercounted* and shortchanged as a State and as a region.
Speaking earlier at the flag-off, the *Speaker, Imo House of Assembly,* Rt. Hon. Prince Emeka Nduka disclosed that the opportunity for the Southeast to count their numerical strength is now. He added that anyone *who* impedes the smooth process of the census will be doing a disservice to the people of Imo *State* and the *Southeast* at large.
Present at the event were; the Eze Imo, Eze (Dr.) E.C. Okeke, and other traditional *rulers,* Government officials, Sole administrators and other grassroot leaders.
