The National Coordinator APGA Media Warriors Forum, Evang Chinedu Obigwe on Wednesday belaboured All Progressives Congress, APC’s slogan ‘Change’ and modus-operandi with which the party runs the affairs of the country, noting that the word ‘Change’ signified taboo in Anambra state.
“In Anambra the word change is a taboo because you cannot change a winning team”, he said.
Obigwe, made the call in a statement issued to newsmen on Wednesday morning. According to him, those contesting along with Governor Willie Obiano are doing so to justify all righteousness, hence the reason some allegedly resorted in hatching rigging plots.
“You cannot change a winning team, Change is a taboo, Obiano’s excellent performance in office endeared him before Anambra electorates, thus the reason they are poised to re-elect him for a merited second term”, he said.
Speaking further he called on the international community’s to ensure that the APC led Federal government delivers a free and fair election in the State, hither to deepen Nigeria nascent democracy.
“Nigeria will boil if Anambra election is rigged. The only thing that will renew people’s confidence in Nigeria electoral system is free and fair election”, he said.
Read parts of his statement bellow:
“As Governor Obiano is busy campaigning for his re-election, Tony Nwoye, the APC Governorship candidate is busy seeking Federal government support to rig the forthcoming November 18th election. He wants to poison the mind of the President against Governor Obiano with lies but it will never work.
“In Anambra state, if you conduct a free and fair election 100times, Governor Obiano will win because of his provable good works in the State.
“For El-Rufai to shamelessly telling those that cares to listen that he was locked up in his hotel room in Anambra during the 2013 election is a political punch on himself.
“In a sane society since El -Rufai is not an eligible voter in Anambra State; he has no right to move around the State on Election Day.
“The reason why Governor Obiano is the choice of Anambra traders, traditional rulers, President Generals, political class, the academia, keke and Okada riders, youth and the physically challenged is because he has justified the confidence reposed on him by Anambra electorates.
“Also Obiano’s second term re-election will entrench sense of belonging in Anambra State political system.
“I urge Anambra electorates to see this election as a battle for the security of their future and that of their children that must be won without any electoral malpractices.
“To resist rigging is Anambra electorates inalienable right. Use your right to ensure a free and fair election in the State”, he finally said.
