Senatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Anambra South district in next month’s election, Chris Uba, has said that it is mandatory for the zone to produce the next governor of the state.
Uba stated this on Friday during a town hall meeting with people from the seven local government areas that make up the senatorial district.
He said the district had been marginalised over the years by successive administrations in the state.
Anambra South senatorial district is made up of Aguata, Orumba North, Orumba South, Nnewi North, Nnewi South, Ekwusigo and Ihiala local government areas.
The last time the district produced a governor was in 2007 when Andy Uba served for only 17 days before he was sacked by the Supreme Court.
Speaking during the town hall meeting, Uba said one of his reasons for seeking a seat in the Senate was to give a voice to the people of the district.
He said, “I’m in this race to rescue my people, correct some misdeeds and impunity against our people.
“I’m contesting this seat in anger because those who have been representing our people have failed in their duties.
“I’m ready for this fight and ready to give my constituents what they have lacked in many years.”
Also speaking, Chairman of the PDP in Ihiala, Mr Sam Anyakora, said the district had unanimously endorsed Uba for February’s election because of the good things he had done for the zone over the years. – Punch
