According to reports, the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Anambra State has called on the people to vote en masse for Governor Willie Obiano and shun violence in whatever guise.
APGA chieftain and member, Willie Obiano Re-election Committee, Obi Ochije said the party has vowed to ensure Obiano’s return by taking the campaign to the grassroots, preaching non-violence, stressing that the party was sure of victory with the governor’s impressive first term record.
“Ours is a grassroots party and there is a mass movement and support for APGA. Our performance is there for all to see. With the people behind us, we are 100 per cent ready for the election, come November 18,” he said.
Ochije commended APGA for producing quality governors who have over the years turned the fortunes of the state around.
“Peter Obi was governor for eight years and as APGA governor, he made impact. Obiano, another APGA governor, in the last four years has turned the state around for good. Today, Anambra is first in education, agriculture, prompt payment of salaries and pensions, wonderful infrastructure, healthcare, security and huge foreign investments.
“As governor, he knew that for a state to grow, the security situation must be conducive. Anambra became great after he made the state inhabitable for criminals.
The people who are witnesses to this have vowed to return him as governor. The votes will be overwhelming. Obiano is a wonder worker, a governor with a vision and mission. He has surpassed his predecessors’ records. APGA will defeat all other parties and Obiano will emerge victorious,” Ochije said.
He also called on all stakeholders, security agents and INEC to be fair and ensure that the election was peaceful, stressing that a non-violent election was key to a successful Anambra State.
