The Director Publicity and Strategy of Nze Akachukwu Nwankpo campaign team, Dr Harris Odili has tasked the delegates of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), to apply wisdom during the partys primary election by voting for a decent candidate that will be committed to the common good of the people.
He urged them to ignore the antics of the old faces that have become perennial governorship aspirants, saying that they may not be able to bring the trophy home.
Odili in a statement insisted that APGA cannot afford to lose Anambra State, it being the party’s stronghold.
He said, “In all fairness, it has been a stiff competition ahead of the party primary; the keen contest is between the old and new faces.
Since the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC published the timetable for the Anambra Governorship election 2021, APGA has been working round the clock to present the best man to represent the party at the polls.
“No stone will be left unturned in the dogged effort to retain power. But the electorates are not ignorant of the antics of the old faces, who had once or twice occupied elective or appointive positions in the past with nothing to show for it, absolutely nothing to show ndi Anambra, no recognizable achievements.
“Reading the prevailing political situation, I make bold to posit that APGA may not present an old face as the Gubernatorial flag bearer in the forthcoming governorship election. The reasons are not far fetched. Old faces, who had become perennial Gubernatorial aspirants, may not bring the trophy home.
Odili noted that voters could not have forgotten the old face’s inglorious reign, and how it was adjudged inimical toward the concept of developmental governance.
He added, “Only recently, the old faces in a desperate move launched a premeditated media war against the party leadership because their selfish plots are unrealistic, and hope has dimmed. Soon, it would be “I no go gree”.
I call on the APGA delegates to apply wisdom to vote for a decent candidate, who is committed to the common good, respectful of human life and dignity at all times. One who is devoted to truth and justice, knowledgeable and able to work with others. One who is humble and poised to making Anambra greater than he would meet it.
“All APGA faithful should see it as a collective responsibility to make the man with a clean slate, one with no blemishes, Nze Akachukwu Nwankpo “Oputa Ifeadi” the party’s flag bearer for the November 6 governorship election. He is the APGA’s Face of Hope.”
