The sole gubernatorial candidate from Old Aguata and the Progressive People’s Alliance (PPA), flag-bearer, Mr. Godwin Chukwunaenye Ezeemo, has advised Old Aguata electorate to ignore what he called “an obviously sponsored declaration of support to the incumbent governor and vote him massively as their son and most capable candidate come November 18th, 2017.
Speaking during a gathering in his honour at Ajalli in Orumba North Local Government Area, Ezeemo reminded the electorates that they have been deceived thus for more than 19 years since the creation of the state.
According to Ezeemo, “Old Aguata, despite her pivotal role in Anambra State politics, has only gone as far as the deputy governorship position.
“This has been the reason for the marginalisation of the region and we should not allow ourselves to remain in this position.
“We have an opportunity this time to break that jinx with the Progressive People’s Alliance.”
On his part, Comrade Kanu Victor Igbanugo, Ajalli-born political stalwart and Ezendigbo in Osun State said it was a shameful thing that the elders who should be protecting the interest of their people have taken bribe and sold out Old Aguata.
In his words; “Instead of standing behind an illustrious son of the region who has proven himself the best candidate, these political jobbers went ahead to hold kangaroo endorsement for Obiano.
“We will not allow this to happen as long as I live. We will ensure that our own son, Ezeemo, wins in Old Aguata and Anambra South in general because I am sure that we will not have this opportunity in a long time, if we miss it this time.”
On his part, the PPA state chairman said that PPA has come with a wand of salvation for Anambra State in the person of Godwin Chukwunaenye Ezeemo.
“Use your vote to effect a positive change,” he advised, while warning the INEC to desist from aiding and abetting any form of electoral malpractice.
“Anambra people’s republic now wiser and they would protect their vote with their last blood,” he advised
Lady Adaobi Chinwuko, the state woman leader reminded the people to remember that just as childbirth is very difficult but yet very fulfilling, the path of making Anambra State better by voting in Ezeemo would be difficult but would be the best thing for every nook and cranny of the state.
