Anambra’s governor, Charles Soludo, has asked voters in the state to vote for all Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) candidates so that the government can run smoothly.
Tuesday, at a political rally in Akpaka Government Reserved Area (GRA) in Onitsha, Soludo said this to the people who support his party.
He said that the people would get the benefits of democracy if they voted for all the APGA candidates.
The governor said that Mr Edward Ibuzo, running for Onitsha Federal Constituency, is a selfless man who only cares about what is best for the people he represents.
He says that most people only think about what will help them, but Ibuzo feels about what will help his people and not himself.
“That is why I resolved to do the Akpaka-Nsugbe road that he pleaded for that his people need urgently.
“So I promised him I will do the road because, in APGA, we fulfil our promises.
“My predecessor, Obiano, promised me of becoming the next governor after him, and I also promised him support which I fulfilled. So in APGA, it is a promise fulfilled.
“So, if you people vote APGA candidates, especially for those contesting for State House of Assembly, whatever they present to me will not be delayed; it will be endorsed.
“But if it were to be from other parties, it will not be given the attention it deserves,” he said.
Mr Patrick Mba, the Commissioner for Youth Development, praised the governor for his One Youth, Two Skills Initiative programme, which he started to help young people become self-sufficient. He said that the project is working well.
Mba said that Soludo was a governor who always did what he said he would do. He also noted that Soludo had made Anambra a better place in his short time as governor.
Also, Harold Ekwerekwu, the APGA candidate for Onitsha North constituency II in the House of Assembly, promised to do a good job, especially on roads and other infrastructure.
