Onitshaâ€”Disturbed by the continued marginalisation of his people by past and present administrations in the state, the former Deputy Governor of Anambra State, Chief Chinedu Emeka,Â weekend said he had decided to put himself forward to emancipate the people of Anambra north senatorial zone .
Emeka, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, who spoke with Vanguard said, he was quittingÂ politics to enable him settle down and fight collectively with his people to ensure they belong to mainstream government in the state.
â€œThough I am in PDP, I have decided to harken to the call by my people to collectively fight the marginalisation of Anambra north senatorial zone in the scheme of things by successive governments,â€ he said.
He added,â€this zone, has not produced a Governor despite the fact that our bloc vote determines who gets the mandate to be the Governor of this state,â€
Emeka, a former lawmakerÂ in the Anambra State House of Assembly said he was inclined to assistÂ his people in making the right choice of candidate that will address the issue of their being marginalised by appointing their sons and daughters into good political positions as well as develop the area.
â€œRight now, we have Mr Peter Obi who has done well; Dr Andy Uba with limitless resources, contacts and strong political machinery; Dr Chris Ngige, a pacesetter, who showed that governance can yield democracy dividend; Uche Ekwunife who has shown that what a man can do a woman can do better,â€ he added.
