Governor Peter Obi has once again reiterated his commitment to Anambra North producing his successor, insisting it was necessary in order to maintain equity, fairness and justice. Gov. Obi made this known while answering questions on APGA commitment that the next governor will come from Anambra North on Thursday during the Town Hall meeting at Onitsha North Local Government headquarters.
“Our leader, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu died a man of honour and he fought the cause of justice till his last breath. Together with him, we made a firm commitment that after my humble self that the next Governor of the State would come from Anambra North. During the electioneering in 2010, all the candidates promised to support Anambra North. I urge them to be honourable and keep their words”, Obi said. He also debunked the crisis in APGA insisting that the party remained one.
On how a candidate would emerge, Obi said that the decision to give the State the best candidate was that of the people of the Senatorial Area and called on them to cultivate strength of character that would enable them to remain focused and resist undue distraction from any quarter.
Commenting on the second Niger Bridge, Obi said that he had lost count of how many times the issue was raised by the South-East and himself personally with the President and the Minister of Works, as well as other relevant stakeholders. He appealed to the people to thank the President as the project is on course.
