Governor Willie Obiano has continued to garner more support as more groups declare their determination to mobilize for him.
Inaugurating the Akpokuedike Fan Club, yesterday at Professor Dora Akunyili Women’s Development Centre, Awka, state Deputy Governor, Dr. Nkem Okeke who spoke unbehalf of Governor Obiano, assured of continued delivery of good governance to State citizenry.
While expressing satisfaction at the level of support already garnered by Governor Obiano, Deputy Governor, Okeke noted that the Governor’s commitment to leadership is responsible for such goodwill, saying that it’s not out of place as they are exercising their right to a better life, as it is no longer just a matter of party affiliation, but about Governor Obiano’s character and commitment to leadership.
Dr Okeke who assured of working with the Fan Club at the right time to mobilize people for the election to ensure Governor Obiano’s return, stressed that in order for peace to continue to reign supreme in the State, the Northern part of the State should be allowed to complete a second term of four years.
He further emphasized that the success of the campaign is dependent on them, calling for increased actions towards ensuring that people are well sensitized on the need to come out and vote en masse, as well as protect their votes to make it count.
A former Nigerian Ambassador to Spain and the wife of the former Biafran War lord, Chief Mrs Bianca Ojukwu described the job of the members of the club as important, saying that APGA and its leadership remains a replica and model of late Dim Odumegwu Ojukwu’s dream of a region where excellence prevails.
Chief Mrs Ojukwu underlined the need for the APGA dream to be upheld for posterity sake, stressing that those clamoring for the boycott of elections in the State should be well advised to begin such calls in their home State, adding that Governor Obiano should be returned for second term to sustain the dividends of good governance in the State.
She warned that Igbo Youths are the most endangered, as there is no visible federal government presence in terms of infrastructure, adding that APGA remains the voice of Ndi Igbo and should be supported.
Earlier, the President of Akpokuodike Fan Club, Barrister Chika Ekwunugo noted that their base covers the one hundred and seventy seven Communities in the State with a target of five hundred ambassadors in each Town before the end of September, with the only criterion being having a voters card, saying that their drive is engineered by Governor Obiano’s approach to governance which had translated to positive revolution in governance.
Also present at the inauguration ceremony were the member representing Njikoka Two Constituency in the State House of Assembly, Dr Pete Ibida, Chairman of Anambra State Housing Development cooperation, Chief Godson Ezenagu, Special Adviser to the Governor on Youth Entrepreneurship and Empowerment, Dr Onyeka Ibezim, among others.
