Anambra State Still with Johnathan

AWKA, the Anambra State capital, was agog, Saturday, when the disputed Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate for the November, 2013 governorship election, Tony Nwoye, made a grand entry during a border reception.
Nwoye said the sparks of the party were still intact and that days of the reign of Governor Peter Obi’s All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in the state are over. He also vowed the state’s unflinching support for President Jonathan, his administration and vision, stressing that Anambra remains a PDP state.
Nwoye, who rode in a long convoy of vehicles with top national and zonal party stalwarts, was received by thousands of party faithfuls. According to him, none among Governor Obi, Chike Obidigbo or Willie Obiano has the political capacity and people-support to stop the PDP from taking over the government house in the November 16, 2013 election.
He told the crowd that besieged the Amansea border post: “We have seen eight years of Mr. Peter Obi’s administration and every one can see that it is a colossal failure. He now wants one of his boys to replace him, so that the misrule and maladministration can continue.
“The APGA government has this way of deceiving people with gifts and pretending to be doing something good whenever election is by the corner. The governor has announced that people should go and collect employment forms because election is by the corner. This was what he did in 2010 governorship election and after that nobody was employed till date.
“He has started with local government elections and that was what he told us in 2010 election. Today, it has been shifted from October to December 2013. We learnt that he has been going about distributing cheques and money to schools and we wonder under what sub head are these payments being made in the 2013 budgetary provisions. He now shares money in churches and we wonder if he is more Christian than us. We want to announce that the days of APGA in government house Awka are numbered and we shall use Anambra People’s mandate to flush the Obianos and Peter Obi’s out of there.”
