A socio-political group, South-East Concerned Group, has begin the process of mobilising support for Anambra State governor, Chief Willie Obiano, in the November 18, 2017 governorship election.
According to the group, in a statement by its coordinator, Ifeanyi Eze and President, Dr. Chuks Onuegbu, it will mobilise Anambra voters to vote for the incumbent governor and give him a landslide victory.
The group said a victory for Obiano was a victory for Anambra people, as the governor has done well in the last three and half years and his reelection will be in the interest of Anambra people.
“Every ambassador of Anambra State must see Obiano’s victory as a task for all,” the group said.
The South-East Concerned Group stated that since provision of infrastructure was the yardstick to measure performance, Obiano has excelled and therefore, “does not need much campaign in Anambra State to convince voters.”
It said Obiano’s government had provided democracy dividends, such as good roads, good education, bridges construction, opening of hinterland for easy transportation of farm products to the cities as well as laying a strong economic plan.
The group said Obiano is not only working but also “stamping a gigantic, uncommon and indelible developmental footprints.”
It said the governor’s campaign of “Aku ruo ulo” has been very fruitful,, adding: “The governor’s security strategy has produced result. It is pertinent to note that it was the realisation of the positive effects and ideas of Obiano and his emergency approach on security that provides the freedom of movement Ndi Anambra are enjoying today. If not for Obiano, Anambra State would have been a graveyard by today, with criminals running riot.”
The group said the only means to increase, secure and protect the infrastructure development in Anambra was to vote APGA in the coming election, adding that a vote for any other party other than APGA was “complete hatred to the late Ikemba, Eze Igbo Gburu Gburu Emeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu.”
