A party leader in the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) says Governor Willie Obiano has no contender in the Anambra governorship election.
Victor Umeh who is the immediate past National Chairman of APGA made this known on Channels Television.
He added that, “political parties are registered to contest elections,” he went further that “Even if you know that your mission is impossible, you must field a candidate.”
According to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), 37 candidates are expected to contest the governorship poll slated for Saturday, November 18.
Umeh, however, said APGA and Obiano are not pressured about the activities of the other parties since the governor’s efforts to develop the state are being felt by the people.
He was also confident that his party would emerge victorious in the election, saying the electorate are only interested in candidates who will deliver the dividend of democracy to the people.
“The government of Willie Obiano is a superb government in many ramifications, in this election, the issue that will determine its outcome relies squarely on the performance of the incumbent.”
“In 2003, we have a failed government in this state. Schools were shut, security was zero, workers were owed their salaries, and pensioners were described as dead wood. Referring to the condition of the state when APGA came to power.
“The governor then from 1999 to 2003 performed so poorly that Anambra state was in the news for a lot of bad reasons and the people of the state, irrespective of party affiliations, agreed that this is a failed government and he must go.”
