AWKA — All Progressives Congress, APC, yesterday, said the party was the only platform that could rescue the people of Anambra State from the unfair leadership of the ruling All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, in the last seven years.
The party stated this during a meeting with some of the aspirants contesting the Anambra governorship election slated for November 16, on its platform.
Speaking during the meeting, one of the aspirants, Senator Annie Okonkwo stated that the political party has come to restore Anambra State.
He said: “We know that people are not happy with what is happening in Anambra State today, but we are promising every citizen of Anambra State that APC will change the face of Anambra State”.
According to Okonkwo, the people have suffered in the hands of the present government. The major aim of government is to protect lives and properties but today, there is no security in Anambra State.
“The ruling party in the state has failed. No jobs for the youth, no security to protect lives and properties and no electricity.”
Okonkwo however, charged members of the party to work hard to ensure that the party wins the election, adding that the party’s door is open to accept decamped and new members into the party.
Also speaking, Mr. Godwin Ezeemo who is also a governorship aspirant in the party, said is the only organise political party in the country.
He however appealed to members of the party to ensure they register in the registration exercise that will commence soon.
