Jonathan, PDP Governors, Chieftains Storm Anambra In Support For Obaze

LAGOS NOVEMBER 17TH (NEWSRANGERS)-Former President Goodluck Jonathan; Delta State Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa; his Ekiti counterpart, Governor Ayodele Fayose; and Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers have stormed Anambra State for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) grand finale campaign rally in Onitsha.
Jonathan led the Governors, including Abia, Ebonyi, Taraba, Gombe and Deputy Governor of Akwa Ibom states as well as former Governor of Ogun state, Otumba Gbenga Daniel to campaign for the Anambra State PDP flag bearer, Henry Obaze.
The former President declared that the only way for Igbos to have a voice in Nigeria and to end marginalization was for them to return the PDP, beginning with Saturday’s governorship election in Anambra state.
He maintained that the PDP was the party to beat in forthcoming election in the state and urged Anambra people to vote for Obaze and stand firm to defend democracy in the state.
The former President contended that Anambra state has been a PDP state from the onset, but along the line deviated to the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) adding that the people of Anambra state should not make the mistake of voting another party that would mortgage their future.
“PDP is the real party that can lead Anambra to the promised land, founding father of PDP is from Anambra which is Dr. Alex Ekwueme and PDP has more population in the country,” he said.
“PDP will bring development to Anambra state. We will encourage enterprise, Obaze will encourage enterprise in Anambra. You must not make mistake on Saturday, vote for Obaze.
“You need somebody that can have a voice and represent you well when they go to Abuja, you need first eleven when you go to Abuja to defend the interest of Anambra state.
“We need somebody that will protect the interest of Anambra people, somebody to protect the interest of Igbo. We don’t want any situation Igbo will complain of marginalization, it will depend on people you send there and then governors and people we send there.
“We need somebody that will encourage the enterprise and business who has the connection oversea to attract foreign partners to the state and that person is Obaze.”
In his remark, the former Governor of the state, Peter Obi, declared that his successor and incumbent Governor seeking a second term, Willie Obiano, was a mistake and bad market which Anambra state people should correct in the forthcoming election.
“Obiano is a mistake and bad market we made which must be corrected by voting Obaze in Saturday election,” he said.
“He should tell us what happened to N75 billion left in the state account and N192 million allocation. Obiano said there is no need of saving money, he sold Anambra state house in Lagos state, let’s vote him out.”
