As the uncertainty continues over the rerun of the Anambra Central senatorial election, the Anambra State chairman of the People for Democratic Change (PDC), Prince Isaac Onuka, has pitched his tent with immediate past governor of the state, Mr. Peter Obi, saying that he possesses the right qualities to represent the zone in the country’s upper legislative chambers.
Addressing journalists in Awka over the weekend, Onuka described Obi, who is being put forward by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the race, as a man with the Midas touch who will definitely attract the dividends of democracy to the zone considering his connections in the political circles and in the business world.
According to him, having been the governor of Anambra State for eight years, Obi understands the needs of the zone and would therefore bring his wealth of experience to bear in carrying out legislative functions in the senate.
He said: “Obi is a goal getter who would stop at nothing to get results. He is a purpose-driven man and a courageous person who is not easily discouraged from pursuing what he believes in.
“With his excellent performance as a governor, Obi will command a lot of respect from his colleagues in the senate who would be inclined to support any request he would make for the benefit of his zone.
“As a believer in Igbo progress, Obi will surely ensure that the South East gets its due share through effective representation in the Senate.”
Onuka, who said he was among those who never believed in Obi when he became governor, observed that the former governor shocked everybody with his wonderful performance that impacted positively on the people and in all parts of the state and made Anambra one of the fastest developing states in the country.
