As the campaign for the 2023 Presidential Election hits top gear, Nigerians from all spheres of life and People’s Democratic Party (PDP) members in particular, have been urged to support Dr. Nwachukwu Anakwenze’s ambition to become Nigeria’s next President.
National Coordinator of Arewa Frontier Movement, Comrade Mustapha gave the charge at Wadata Plaza on Monday April 11, 2023 ,when Dr. Anakwenze stormed PDP secretariat to submit his form indicating that he would be contesting for the office of the Presidency come 2023.
Comrade Saye, while speaking to journalists, said that Dr. Anakwenze would get Nigeria working again within three months if he is elected President of Nigeria.
He stressed that going by his track records as an administrator, “If elected as President, Anakwenze will create jobs and develop a world standard education in the country and make sure health sector is also upgraded to international standard.
The Coordinator of the Arewa group also said that in order to stop hunger and penury in the land, agriculture would take top priority with agricultural mechanisation and provision of seedling and fertilizers as the major fulcrum of Anakwenze’s polices .
Comrade Mustapha Saye further urged all the Presidential aspirants in the PDP to step down their ambitions in favour of South East candidates in the spirit of fairness and equality.
“We at the Arewa Frontier Movement wholeheartedly support the Onowu – Dr Anakwenze to be the President come 2023 in the interest of justice and fair play.
“With that being said, we studied the action plan of the aspirant and we believe that he has the capacity to take Nigeria to the next level . I therefore call on other contestants to give Dr Anakwenze the chance to make Nigeria a better country again.
The National Secretary of the group Okpani Odeh Akatu said the PDP needs to do the needful by zoning it’s presidential slot to the South East following the declaration of former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar that he would support the party if it gives its ticket to the South East.
Okpani Akatu said that the South East supported former President Olusegun Obasanjo in 1998, it supported Umaru Musa Yar Adua in 2007 and Goodluck Jonathan in 2011.
“Obasanjo who is from the South West did eight years, Yar Adua from the North West did 2 years and Goodluck Jonathan from the South South did 5 years plus .It is only the South East that has been left out of the equation. If Party rewards loyalty then the Southeast should unequivocally be rallied around for the party candidature.
“Incidentally, the South East is the hub and nerve centre of PDP.If So if the PDP zones it’s ticket to South East, the support of the party would grow immensely.
He then urged Governor Nyesom Wike and Ayo Fayose to step down their ambitions and support aspirants from South East adding that it is the turn of that geopolitical zone to produce the President .
I want to appeal to our leaders such as Wike and Fayose to support aspirants from South East so that collectively Nigerians from all the geopolitical zones of the country can retake their country from the APC .
He further stressed that the South East also have a strong contestant in person of Dr Anakwenze,
Going by Anakwenze’s track record, if given the ticket, he would beat the APC candidate and restore Nigeria’s economy, stressing that the Southeast aspirant will work together to present Nigerians the best choice for the job.
