AlLLIED Congress Party of Nigeria, ACPN, candidate, Comrade Ejoor Ojiba, yesterday, said he would adopt the campaign strategies of the immediate past governor of the state, Mr. Peter Obi, in his bid for the governorship. He has also said that he would adopt Mr. Obi’s style of governance if elected into office saying that was the method that endeared Obi to the people of the state.
Comrade Ojiba who is popularly known in the state and his Onitsha home town, as Akunwata Ejoor Ojiba, said “like Mr. Peter Obi, I have come out quietly to win the governorship election and to replicate, surpass the achievements of the former governor in transforming the state.”
He said even when he is less known in the political terrain of the state, but as a former Customs officer and accomplished technocrat and successful civil servant, he will perform beyond the expectations of the people of the state.
“I have quietly come out like former Governor Obi, won our party’s delegate election that made me candidate for ACPN, I will quietly win the election, and work like the former governor, and even rubbish his administration’s achievements with the level of achievements and positive development my administration will bring to the people of Anambra State,” he said in a statement issued by his campaign team.
“My coming out to contest the election and subsequent election as the candidate of ACPN is a call to duty having been persuaded by the people of the state, my Onitsha community to contest based on my qualities, experience, gathered over the years from service to humanity.
“Like my campaign slogan “The Eagle has landed to rescue our people from bad leadership”, real transformation has come for the people of Anambra State with my emergence and victory in the governorship primaries, which will now see me through to Government House Awka to take the state to the next level of development.”
