APC cannot win elections in Anambra – Monarch

Ahead of the November 18 governorship poll in Anambra State, the traditional ruler of Awka-Etiti in Idemili-South Local Government Area of Anambra State, Igwe Angus Ojukwu, has said that the All Progressives Congress (APC) has no chance to win elections in the state.

The Anambra monarch said this while declaring his ambition to join the governorship race under the platform of Mega Progressive Peoples Party (MPPP).

He said: “The APC cannot win the governorship election in Anambra State. The PDP has not yet put its house in order as to stand for and win the forthcoming election in Anambra. APGA is already dead by reason of the leadership crisis rocking it. By the time I take over after the November 2017 election, APGA will be completely dead because its grip is limited to Anambra.”

He also described Governor Willie Obiano’s administration as visionless, saying “Governor Willie Obiano’s administration has not improved the welfare of the average person in the state, thus the need for change.

Ojukwu, however declared a 10-point agenda which include free and compulsory primary and secondary education, free maternal/child care, electricity for all, potable water for all, adequate security network, industrialisation, infrastructural development, employment generation, agriculture and investment.

“We have a people-friendly manifesto and programmes which if implemented, would benefit the state more than what any other government, past or present, has offered,” he added.
