Sebastine, who was treated to a rousing welcome by thousands of supporters and admirers thanked the people for their large turnout. He disclosed that Umunede remains the commercial nerve of Ika North East and as such, they would contend with anyone that might pose a threat to the community’s progress, adding that time has come to correct the errors made in the past. ‘The people’s general’ as he is fondly called pointed out that they would no longer sleep and fold their hands while things go wrong in the land, adding that Umunede deserves the best.
He charged the people to rise up and fight for what they believe will help the community move forward, noting that no amount of money or pressure would make him betray his supporters nor deviate from the path of truth, as time would come when everyone would give account of himself. He urged those betraying Umunede to desist from it as the god of the land will not forgive them, saying that the growth and development of Umunede and Ika land in general remain his priority. He enjoined his supporters and all present to go into the nooks and crannies of Umunede and environs to canvass for more support as there must be change in Umunede and Ika nation.
On his part, the Director General of Sebastine Campaign Team, Dr. U.C. Anyahiwe appreciated all for their great support and hardwork, urging them to put more efforts. He pointed out that just like John the Baptist, he and his team have come to make the road to Abuja smooth for Sebastine Okoh and as such, all hands must be on deck to actualize the goal.

While commending Sebastine Okoh for his legendary contributions in Ika land, Dr. Anyahiwe charged Ika sons and daughters to do the needful and give their maximum support to Sebastine Okoh whom he said has been ordained by God for victory.
