ANAMBRA 2014: How PDP can get it right – Obiogbolu

BY LEKAN BILESANMI
A  PDP governorship aspirant in Anambra State, Dr Alex Obiogbolu, has commended the people of the state for their support and acceptance of his aspiration, explaining that his party will get it right at the November polls only if the process of electing its candidate is credible.

Obiogbolu, who spoke  in Awka yesterday, singled out the traditional rulers, the presidents of town union, particularly those from Anambra North, for their support which, he said, dates back to 2007 when he first indicated his interest in the state’s plum job.

He said the support has become a source of inspiration  for  him to keep dreaming of the wonderful things he will do for the state if he makes it to Awka Government House.

He was also full of praises for the civil socities, the clergy and Ohaneze for standing behind him even as he gave a thumb up for the youths and groups like Forum 99 for their enthusiasm towards his guber intention.

He also expressed his commitment and unalloyed support for the process initiated by the PDP toward electing a credible candidate to fly the party’s  flag in the election.

Obiogbolu however declared  that the PDP must get it right now to avoid being in opposition for the next eight years He called for a secret voting and unteleguided process for credibility sake and to avoid casting as person on the process which will lead to failure of the party at the polls.
