The group which membership and branches is scattered across countries of the world described as alarming the level of unemployment in the area as part of their reasons for the endorsement of Odunzeh stressing that Odunzeh as a private man has employed a good number of Imo people in his various establishments and Orlu zone in particular hence the sky would be his starting point in job creation if elected the Governor because of his antecedents in the private sector.
