Anambra state Government by the governor, Dr. Willie Obiano has appealed to the people of Idemili North Local Government Area of the state to double the 12,000 votes they gave to him during his second tenure to the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) governorship candidate, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo.
Obiano made the appeal while addressing stakeholders and electorate in the council area during APGA’s campaign tour of the area, while thanking them for supporting his administration all these years.
Transition Committee Chairman of Idemili North Council Area, Mr. Asha Nnabuife recalled the good work of the governor in the area, including erosion control project at Obosi which saved a lot of buildings from collapsing, road projects, street lighting project, choose your project initiative in different Idemili towns as well as intervention at the Nkpor flyover, assuring that they were prepared and would stand behind Soludo to vote and protect their votes, contrary to the views that votes will be stolen.
Nnabuife disclosed that the people of Idemili North local government area have unanimously thrown their weight behind the APGA candidate during the election, to ensure that Soludo wins.
Also speaking, Director General of APGA Campaign Organization, Professor Solo Chukwulobelu who is also the Secretary to Anambra State Government (SSG0, described Idemili people as the paradox of the state which has the largest number of registered voters in Nigeria with over 200,000 registered voters.
Chukwulobelu lamented that less than 10 percent of the registered voters actually turn out to vote and canvassed for massive mobilization, just as the member representing Anambra East and West Federal Constituency, Chief Chinedu Obidigwe asked them to mobilize 150,000 votes for APGA.
The Special Adviser to Governor Obiano on Political Matters, Barrister Ifeatu Obiokoye and the member representing Idemili North at the State House of Assembly, Hon. Ifeanyi Chiekwu assured that Idemili North will deliver more than expected and appreciated the Governor for all he has done for the Anambra people.
