From Odogwu Emeka Odogwu, Awka

www.odogwublog.com reports that it was historic yesterday in Oko, Orumba North local government area when the former Vice President, Dr Alex Ekwueme led the 45 communities in Old Aguata comprising of 3 local govt areas to reject the candidate of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) Chief Willie Obiano for a second term for his non performance. 
Ekwueme while addressing the PDP families in the three local government areas said APGA has had enough in the state and it is now the turn of Ndi Old Aguata. 

He is optimistic that now former Governor Peter Obi is in PDP, that Anambra would have a PDP Governor, appealing to OLD Aguata people to vote in Oseloka Obaze and his daughter, Chidi. 

“Anambra is a PDP State and we are taking over the state. Old Aguata people, this is our duty and responsibility to deliver OHO and Alexandria. Please, we should do that. 

Explaining how, Governor Willie Obiano failed Anambra state in his almost four years, former Governor Peter Obi lamented that Obiano has received N300Billion for the three local government areas in Anambra state yet there is nothing to show in the three local government areas even 3kilometer of roads. 

Obi said he has problem with Governor Willie Obiano and not with Mr Peter Obiano, wondering why he should leave over N75 Billion highest ever left in Nigeria by any former Governor and nothing is done for the state.

Obi said Obiano has not delivered any bus to schools, no security vehicle and had not visited any school yet Obiano is asking for a second term. 

He appealed to Old Aguata people to vote Obaze and Ekwueme”s daughter.

Obi reminded that he kept over N2 Billion for Oko Nanka erosion menace with First Bank but three years down the line, nothing has been done wondering if the money is still in the coffers. 

He informed that N20 Million to the 45 communities Obiano gave is N900Million against N13.9 Billion received from three local government areas from Federation Account. 

Obaze in his remarks said free education would be awarded for. Nursery school to Junior secondary three for Anambra children and Charity care for better health would be introduced. 

Obaze reiterated that he would stay for only 4 years and hand over to Anambra South as his mission was to restore the glory of the state.

He appealed to Old Aguata people to vote their daughter as it is right to honour him with the election of his daughter as deputy governor of Anambra state. 

” I have taken a position that political appointment in Anambra would be 60 to 40 for women”

In a superlative performance being her first to address such gathering, Obaze”s running mate , Chidi Alexanderia Onyemelukwe spoke undiluted native language of Old Aguata Union, appealing for support to enable her and the Governorship candidate to be elected cone November 18th, 2017. She assured she would not disappoint the expectations. 

Highlight was prayer and blessing of Obaze and Chidi Alexandria Onyemelukwe nee Ekwueme for a successful election.
