Engr. Chris Emeka Azubogu, a leading aspirant for the November 6 Anambra State governorship election, has reaffirmed his resolve to prioritize fixing the Anambra State infrastructure demands if elected as governor of the state.
Azubogu, who is the member representing Nnewi North/Nnewi South/Ekwusigo Federal Constituency in the Federal House of Representatives, stated this last Monday in the main commercial city of the state, Onitsha, after a private engagement with some stakeholders on what he tagged, conversation on the future of Anambra State development, which he was anchoring his aspirations on.
‘Growth and development cannot occur as a result of accident. These things are produced through deliberate actions of a people who are committed to achieving results for their society.
‘I have been saying this, that our urban population growth without corresponding infrastructure facilities will produce slums and a danger to Anambra State’s civilization. Today, our urban cities are already sliding into slums. But I assure you that if elected, we will turn the tide with a well thought action plan on urban renewal and comprehensive statewide infrastructure development,’ he said.
The man, popularly known in the state as Mr Project, due to the number of projects he facilitated in the state, maintained that he would fix Anambra’s infrastructure if elected the governor of the state.
‘I will lead an Anambra State Government that will turn the state into an organized construction site within one year, in line with our deliberate quest to put in place the critical Infrastructure facilities upon which Anambra will build its growth on,’ he said.
Engr Azubogu is contesting for the governorship of Anambra State on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
