Ex-Secretary to Anambra State Government (SSG), Mr. Oseloka Obaze, has condemned the ongoing call in the media by Anambra North People’s Assembly (ANPA) for a sole candidate from the area for the November, 2017 gubernatorial election in the state saying the idea does not give room for elasticity.

Speaking through a statement in Awka, Obaze described the erroneous impression being bandied about in the media is giving a wrong impression of the people’s stand.

He said: “I had the honour and privilege of hosting the ANPA Executives led by Chief Emma Achike in my office. I exchanged views with them for over a two-hour period on 5th January, 2017.

“I also interacted with the ANPA Committee led by Dr. Tim Menakaya when they visited Atani in Ogbaru LGA on 23 January, 2017.

“In both instances, I made it clear that Anambra North should be  allowed to complete its second tenure, and that the people of the North Senatorial zone should be accorded the opportunity to present their best candidates for the forthcoming governorship elections in accordance with acceptable and unfettered democratic norms.

“However, ANPA has in its considered wisdom, taken a non-inclusive, unrepresentative and undemocratic decision that forecloses on all possible and probable best options open to Anambra North.”

Continuing, Obaze said that “in the fullness of time, the limited utility of such a myopic decision will become manifest.”

He maintained that history and real politics will consequently reveal that the best political decisions and judgement are those based on pragmatism not on gratuitous or primordial sentiments.

Incidentally, Obaze who is eyeing the governorship seat is also from Anambra North zone like the incumbent governor, Chief Willie Obiano.
