THOUSANDS of All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, supporters drawn mainly from Awka South Local Government Area defied Thursday’s early morning rainfall to welcome Governor Willie Obiano on campaign rally.
He was received at the LGA area at the old Awka Township stadium.
The supporters representing a cross section of Ndi Anambra said they were satisfied at the success story of the present administration portrayed by large assemblage of enthusiastic patriots.
They claimed that they were determined to ensure the re-election of Obiano for a second tenure.
Dignitaries of repute including Chukwuma Soludo, a former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Tim Menakaya, a former Minister of Health, Bianca Ojukwu, a former Nigeria’s Ambassador to Spain and wife of the late Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu.
Others are Victor Oye, the national chairman of APGA and Victor Umeh, the director general, Obiano Re-election Campaign Organization, and Harry Udu, the state head of Service, graced the occasion.
Harford Oseke , the deputy speaker, Anambra State House of Assembly, said APGA as a party had no threat in the forthcoming governorship election, which said was a `fait accompli’.
Tony Omeligwe-Elee, the deputy state chairman, APGA, catalogued the many achievements of the governor and urged the electorate to vote massively for him.
Udu re-assured the governor of the support and loyalty of the people of Awka South LGA.
The Hausa Community in Awka was not left out, as they also graced the occasion.
Garuba Haruna, their leader and special assistant to governor on Muslim religion, scored the governor a 100 percent in the area of security.
He re-assured him of their votes in the November 18 governorship election in the state.
In his solidarity message, Onyiliofo enjoined the Anambra electorate to vote for the governor for the cardinal reasons of sustaining the security system.
Onyilofo added Obiano had sustained safety in the state and also promoted the cause of the Igbo nation.
Some Traditional Rulers sent in solidarity messages; these include those of Awka, Obi Gibson Nwosu, his Nibo counterpart, Eze Michael Ngene and that of Ezinato Igwe Timothy Ezenwaka.
