GOVERNOR Peter Obi has said that his administration is determined to change politicsÂ from the old order of campaign of calumny and violence to politics of accommodation.
Addressing traders at Ochanja Market inÂ Onitsha , Obi said his government believes in allowing diverse views and opposing opinions to be projected to enable the people make reasonable decision in choosing their leaders.
He made clear that while everybody has the right to campaign for any candidate, only people of the state have the right and responsibility to elect leaders of their choice, telling the traders that he has fulfilled promises he made to the people before his first tenure and is ready to do more in his next tenure.
Obi charged the people of the state to sustain the struggle to protect the Igbo political ideology and defend its identity and existence, explaining that as one of the most important states in Igboland, Anambra should support a political party that gives Igbos the bargaining power on national affairs.
The governor noted that his administration was the only government that has attracted federal governmentâ€™s intervention on Federal roads and other projects and is still working hard to actualize the second Niger Bridge project.
Chairman of the traders, Chief Fred Ezeonyi echoed the governorâ€™s statement, maintaining that he had justified his mandate and should be re-elected to continue his good work.
