AWKAâ€”GOVERNORSHIP Candidate of the Labour Party in Anambra State Dr. Andy Uba has thrown his weight behind the call for the amendment of 1999 constitution, saying that the proposed state police in the constitution would enable him consolidate on the security needs of the state.
He also said that he would build power station in the state, adding that it will boost productivity and bring about mass employment.
Uba, who said this in a statement by the Chairman of Move Up Nigeria, MUN, a socio-political association dedicated to justice and equity, Mr Uchenna Nwankwo also formally joined the association.
According to the statement, â€œDr. Uba said he was particularly moved by the associationâ€™s stand and articulation on true federalism, which in his opinion is worth striving for. He noted that the subsisting Nigerian constitution was an obstacle to the execution of some of his dream projects in Anambra State.
â€œHe therefore wants to contribute his quota towards the remaking of the constitution, so that if elected Governor, he would be able to build power stations in Anambra State.â€
“Dr. Uba also frowned at the continuing non-exploitation of the oil and gas resources in the state, even as he pledged to work for the reversal of the arrangement that has stood against the stateâ€™s economic advancement.”
The statement further said â€œthe Secretary of MUN was happy to welcome Dr.Uba into its fold and by identifying with MUN and its agenda, Dr. Uba has proved that unlike his fellow contestants in the race, he sees the bigger picture and understands the wider possibilities for Anambra people.â€
