Ekwueme, Old Aguata reject Obiano, root for Obaze

Ekwueme, Old Aguata reject Obiano, root for Obaze

It was an historic meeting in Oko, Orumba North Local Government Area on Thursday when former Vice President, Dr. Alex Ek­wueme, led the 45 communi­ties in Old Aguata to reject the candidate of the All Progres­sives Grand Alliance (APGA), Chief Willie Obiano, for a sec­ond term in his office over his non-performance.

The communities are lo­cated in three local govern­ment areas of the state.

Addressing the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) fam­ily at the event, Ekwueme said that APGA has had enough in the state and it is now the turn of Ndi Old Aguata.

He is optimistic that with former Governor Peter Obi in the PDP, that Anambra would have a PDP governor and ap­pealed to Old Aguata peo­ple to vote for the PDP candi­date, Mr. Oseloka Obaze and his daughter, Chidi, who is the governorship running mate.

Ekwueme said: “Anambra is a PDP State and we are tak­ing over the state. Old Agua­ta people, this is our duty and responsibility to deliver OHO and Alexandria. Please, we should do that.

Explaining how Governor Obiano failed the state in his almost four years’ administra­tion, Peter Obi lamented that Obiano received N300 billion for the three local government areas in Anambra yet there is nothing to show in the coun­cils even three kilometres of roads.

Obi said that Obiano has not delivered any bus to schools, no security vehi­cle and had not visited any school, but is asking for a sec­ond term.

He appealed to Old Agua­ta people to vote Obaze and Ekwueme’s daughter, Obi said that he kept over N2 billion for Oko Nanka erosion men­ace with First Bank but three years down the line, nothing has been done, wondering if the money is still in the coffers.

He added that the N20 million to the 45 communities Obiano gave is N900 million as against the N13.9 billion he received from three councils from the Federation Account.

Obaze, in his remarks, said that free education would be awarded from nursery school to junior secondary for Anam­bra children and charity care for better health would be in­troduced.

He reiterated that he would stay for only four years in office and hand over to An­ambra South as his mission was to restore the glory of the state.
