Mr Godwin Ezeemo, the Progressive People Alliance (PPA) candidate for the Anambra Nov. 18 governorship election, has picked Mr Stanley Nkwoka as his running mate.
Nkwoka, a 36-year old social and environmental consultant hails from Abetete, Idemili North Local Government of the state.
Ezeemo said at a news conference in Awka on Thursday that his choice of deputy was informed by the need to give youths a voice in the governance of the state.
He described Nkwoka as an accomplished entrepreneur who had proven himself as a “survivor,” adding that he had what it took to make informed decisions that would interest the youths.
In his speech, Nkwoka said that it was an honour for him to be a running mate to Ezeemo.
He said that he became a member of PPA because its philosophy was in consonance with his which accommodated the interest of the masses.
“I see this choice as a gift to the youths and I am poised to make sure all the young people in the state rally round PPA.
“PPA has the best hands that will move the state to greater height,” he said.
In his remark, Dr Chira Obiora, Director General of Ezeemo Campaign Organisation, said the party was gunning for the Anambra governorship because of leadership vacuum in the state.
Obiora urged the Anambra people to support the party because Ezeemo would ensure the wellbeing of everyone in the state.
