The Anambra People’s Assembly has extolled the qualities of APGA gubernatorial candidate for the November 16 election in Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano, and and his running mate, Dr. Nkem Okeke.
The group, a non-governmental and non-political association with membership comprising of professionals, businessmen and opinion leaders in communities across Anambra, meanwhile denied ever endorsing the candidature of APC’s Dr. Chris Ngige, contrary to claims in some sections of the media.
The public denial by the President General of Anambra People’s Assembly, Chief Peter Okoye, Akuluo-uno, was made Friday at Oakland Centre, Enugu, during the fundraising dinner in honour of Obiano and Okeke.
Okoye decried the penchant of candidates of some parties to make unsubstantiated claims in order to boost their ego and create the impression of having mass followership.
He however extolled the qualities of APGA and the choice Obiano as the party’s candidate, assuring the party of the unflinching support of the members of the Assembly.
Okoye disclosed that the Assembly has over 3,000 strong members and is mobilising to ensure that the November election would produce the best candidate for Anambra State. He advised the contestants to stick to issues in their campaigns and avoid personality attacks.
The fundraising dinner was attended by prominent Enugu-based politicians, businessmen and women.
