Anambra: Ekwueme Disowns Obiano, Endorses Obaze by Africonji: 7:22am On Oct 12

Nigeria’s ex-Vice President, Dr. Alex Ekwueme, yesterday, threw his weight behind the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr Oseloka Obaze, ahead of the November 18 Anambra election.

The endorsement of Obaze’s candidature by the elder statesman has laid to rest speculations in the media of the endorsement of the second term bid of the incumbent governor, Chief Willie Obiano.

Addressing PDP faithful in his family house at Oko, Orumba North Local Government Area of the state, Ekwueme said time had come to unseat the ruling All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) to pave way for a PDP government in the state.

He noted that Anambra had been a PDP state, regretting that APGA was able to steer the affairs of the state for 12 years as a result of the protracted crisis in PDP.

“Anambra State is a PDP state from inception; we shall henceforth continue with PDP. Time has come for us to take away power from APGA,” he said.

Ekwueme, whose first daughter, Chidi Onyemelukwe, is the running mate to Obaze in the governorship race, insisted that the November 18 poll would bring to an end, the fame of APGA in the state.

On his part, Obaze described Ekwueme’s endorsement of his candidacy and that of his daughter as “eloquent testimony of his position in the party.”

He said the choice of his daughter as running mate was to compensate him for the enormous job he did in the transformation of Igboland.

When last did Anambra export the $5 million dollar UGU? Where r the $7.5 billion investment companies? Look at the ebonyi flyover and compare with what obiano built for us at 15billion. Obi connected the urban areas with roads, obiano has neither done urban or rural. If obi owns sabmiller, it's welcomed. At least it has invested over $200 million in Anambra. Show me $100 million investment out of the $7.5 billion attracted by obiano............Mou governor must go

dont play the party sympathy card here pls,
is it not the same Apga that always back any pdp presidential candidate?
Anambra is bigger thn any political party and deserves better,
Anambra is a strategic state in southeast and need to be a rallying state in the region interms of development,
Anambra need a "sam mbakwe type of leader"
foresighted, pragmatic and aggresive developer,
simple. And not a million fake MOU's signing governor nor an ugu exporter,
Anambra deserves better.

oga, we are in democracy,
insulting opposition view is dictatorial,
we all want the best for Anambra state,
and we all must not be in the same party,
so being insultive is childish and does not potray you as an intellectual,
you win people with your brain and not verbal abuse.
thanks

You want the best, does it mean your father is not good enough to give us his "best"? Amara be very careful.

For the records, Ekwueme is the foremost promoter and founder of PDP via the G-34 which he convened in 1996 to fight General Abacha. It was the G-34 that metamophosed into PDM/PDP as we know it today. So it is understandable for him to support his party's candidate.

Ekwueme is an elderstatesman and APGA fully understand the game he is playing and we know where his heart truly lies. Willie is an unstoppable force. November 18th will be a historic day.


Anambra leads, others follow.
