…Vows to Take Over Anambra State
By Abuchi Onwumelu
The African Democratic Congress (ADC), has zoned the party’s governorship position to Anambra South Senatorial District, even as it vowed to take over Anambra State in the November 6th Gubernatorial Election.
The party made this known to the public through its national chairman, Chief Ralphs Okey Nwosu, during the just concluded congress/ inauguration of executives of ADC, Anambra State Chapter, held in Awka.
The National Chairman, while calling on people to embrace equity by zoning the governorship position to Anambra South, stated that it was a faulty script to say that the method of moving to South reduced merit, efficiency or effectiveness.
According to him, zoning was a healing balm that recognized the great values and principles inherent in their diversity.
His words, ‘The era of whining, ruing and complaining in Anambra and all over Nigeria should be over the moment the people align with ADC to usher in the orchestra to showcase the super power economic development and progressive society that have been denied our people and country.
‘We in ADC have envisioned for Nigeria and the various states within the country, a clear trajectory of development so that no one is left behind.
‘Our great party, ADC, working in alignment with Ndi Anambra, has envisioned Anambra of tomorrow as the African Ijele state and cosmopolitan business hub to serve Africa and the world. I therefore urge all Anambra youths, women, and everyone resident in the state, to own the vision,’ he urged.
The National Chairman also congratulated the newly inaugurated Anambra State ADC Chairman, Comrade Patrick Obianyo, and his executive members, urging them to work hard to produce the next governor of the state.
The State Chairman, Comrade Obianyo, in his speech, assured that if at the end of the day, an ADC guber candidate emerged governor, the era of governors thumping their hearts and counting the construction of a few kilometers of roads, which, he said, got cracked barely 24 hours after construction, as major achievement, would be a thing of the past.
‘With an ADC governor on the seat of power in Anambra, the state would witness rapid and massive industrialization that would pave way for mass employment of youths. Agricultural potentials would be greatly enhanced through mechanization of farming, provision of improved varieties of crops, soft loans and creation of enabling environment for businesses to thrive, among other agro and non-agro ventures.
