The United National Party for Development, UNPD, one of the recently registered political party by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has declared its support for the Progressive Peoples Alliance, PPA,Â gubernatorial candidate, Mrs Uche Ekwunife.
The party declared that â€œthough our party, UNPD will not be fielding candidate forÂ Saturday governorship election in Anambra, but our party has a say in the affairs of the nation, more so in the Anambra State where we have mustered a lot of support despite being a newly registered party with socialist ideology. We cannot fold our hands unperturbed and let the ship of Anambra be drifted to wrong direction by a wrong captain.â€
According to the party,Â â€œWe had studied the personalities presented by all the parties in contention and we have decided as a mother figure party, who believes in the past performances of women, who have had the opportunity to function in the Nigeria project and have done their best to the staggering surprises of our men folk, do believe in the ability of yet another woman compatriot in person of Ekunife to take the ship and the people of Anambra to greater height.â€
