GOVERNOR Willie Obiano of Anambra State has said that victory of APGA at the Anambra State governorship election had been a propelling force in re-uniting Igbo across the country.
Addressing a campaign rally for the Anambra Central Senatorial election, at Abagana, he pointed out that unity would help to attract more development projects, not only to Anambra but across states in the South East.
“This is the time Igbo will come together to speak with one voice. APGA is the only Igbo party with national outlook.
“Victor Umeh is a credible candidate for Senate. He is the voice of the voiceless. He will defend the Igbo and protect their rights.
“Let us come out en masse to vote APGA on Saturday, Jan. 13, to further consolidate on the works we are doing,’’ Obiano said.
He commended the people for their massive support in the last governorship election, promising to sustain the tempo of development and wealth creation in the state.
Nkem Okeke, deputy governor, re-assured that the people of Njikoka would always offer massive support to APGA government, to emerge victorious on Jan. 13, re-run election.
The member representing Njikoka two in the Anambra State House of Assembly, Mr Pit Ibida, member representing Njikoka Dunukofia and Anaocha at the Federal House of Representatives –described Victor Umeh as “a courageous leader who stands for the truth, especially in a difficult moment’.’
Others who acknowledged him, include Dozie Nwankwo and Bianca Ojukwu, a former Nigerian Ambassador to Spain.
Meanwhile, Umeh, the APGA candidate for Senatorial re-run, has expressed bitterness at the marginalisation of Ndigbo in the country.
Umeh, who reassured of his readiness for the election, said APGA win in the seven local governments in the area.
He noted that the election that would produce him as the first APGA Senator would expand the frontiers by helping the party in capturing other states, especially in the Northern zone.
