The Assembly equally harped warnings to its indigenes to avoid dividing their votes or jeopardize the wining chances of Gov. Obiano. It urged its electorates to vote completely for Obiano.
The report unequivocally added that Gov. Obiano should be given an opportunity to complete his eight years for Anambra north, thus going by the agreed zoning procedure endorsed by Ndi Anambra political chieftains.
This will make it even, equal and democratically balanced just like Obiano’s predecessors did, the report says.

Anambra North People’s Assembly, ANPA, Endorsement of Governor Willie Obiano 2nd term re-election bid report/communiqué. Within the overall framework of efforts of the ANPA committee to ensure that Anambra North completes eight years (2nd tenure) in office as the Governor of Anambra state by winning the 2017 gubernatorial election, there was a meeting by the adhoc ANPA committee with stakeholders from seven LGA’s in the Anambra north senatorial zone between 21th and 25th January, 2017 at different venues, after which the following observations and resolutions were made.
It was a general consensus that Anambra North should retain power for another four years so as to complete the maximum eight years in office which would see circle of equity being completed as other senatorial zones have enjoyed lengthier periods in the past.
Thus, it was a general conviction of the people that Anambra North has to win the 2017 gubernatorial election. There were rational views that Anambra North has multiple candidates and that if not checkmate, will mar the chances of the people of the zone from wining the forthcoming November 18th election.
It was generally admitted that since Anambra North geopolitical zone has done well through the serving Governor Willie Obiano, the people of the zone should see as a patriotic task to support his re-election bid. In this regard, Chief Mike Areh moved a motion for the adoption of Governor Willie Obiano, as the sole candidate for Anambra North People’s Assembly for the November 18th election and the motion was seconded by Hon. Obinna Emenaka, MHA Anambra east constituency.
By virtue of this ANPA resolution, the people of Anambra North are hereby advised to vote en mass for Governor Obiano on November 18th and that they should not make the costly mistake of dividing Anambra North senatorial zone vote. They should endeavor to do the needful that is expected of them by returning Governor Obiano to office for a merited 2nd term.
Signed by Hon. Somtochukwu Udeze (Nnabuenyi), Member Anambra state house of Assembly, representing Ogbaru 11 state constituency and Dr. Tim Menakaya, former minister of health and chairman ANPA Adhoc Committee.
