Ohanaeze; the apex Igbo socio-cultural group, has handed an overwhelming endorsement to Chief Willie Obiano, the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) candidate for the November 16 Anambra State governorship election.
Rising from a meeting of all the leaders of the body in the 21 local governments in Anambra State where they had invited the 23 gubernatorial candidates, Chairman of the Anambra State chapter of Ohanaeze, Elder Chris Eluemuno, declared Ohanaeze’s support for Obiano, describing him as the best candidate that represents the aspirations of Ndi Anambra.
Anambra Ohanaeze had invited all the 23 candidates to an interactive session at Davies Hotel, Awka, to talk through their plans for Anambra State but only Chief Obiano turned up for the session.
Wowed by Obiano’s performance at the session, the Ohanaeze chiefs endorsed the Aguleri high chief as the one best suited to guide Anambra State to greater heights.
In a related development, traders in Tyre Sellers-Market, Baking Materials Market and Building Materials Market in Onitsha have also declared their support for the APGA candidate.
The traders, who turned out in large numbers to receive the APGA campaign train that made whistle-stops in the key markets in the leading commercial city by the Niger, sang the increasingly popular APGA anthem and cheered Chief Obiano’s every word when he made his trademark extempore speeches.
They assured the APGA candidate that they would vote for him on Election Day.
