Ahead of Thursday’s National Convention of the United Progressive Party (UPP), former Aviation Minister, Chief Osita Chidoka said on Tuesday the party has gained firm roots in the state due to its egalitarian stance, grassroots appeal and progressive deportment.
Eeceiving members of the popular G32 and Anambra Kunie youth groups, the former Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Commission, who is a frontline contender in the November 18 Anambra State Governorship election, said he was impressed that the people of Anambra, especially the youth were massively connecting with a party that guarantees a brighter future for the state.
Stating that the UPP is the only party with genuine followership in the state, Chief Chidoka said it has already entrenched formidable structures in all parts of the state as the people identify with it as the indisputable people-oriented political platform through which they can realise their long suppressed individual and collective aspirations.
“UPP is the party of the people. It is the party with the true spirit of Anambra; a party that thinks about the people and their welfare. That is why you see a lot of people coming into our fold; that is why it is easy for the people to connect with our party. Anambra people cannot wait to take back their state and they know that the UPP is the only viable vehicle through which we can collectively do so,” he said.
The aspirant said he appreciated the leaders and members of the party for the massive acceptance he has received and pledged to continue to propagate its lofty ideals. He urged all UPP members and supporters to continue to disseminate the ideologies of the party as the future of the state now lies on its shoulders.
He thanked the youth for their support and pledged to run a government that is responsive to their development. He said Anambra State youth are brimming with energy and ideas, which must be properly harnessed for the benefit of the state, adding that he has perfected a blueprint that would ensure a comprehensive participation of the youth in his government when elected.
Earlier, the leader of the group, Engr. Ben Chude said the visit was to assure Chief Chidoka of their support at all levels of the governorship race, which he noted informed their support for the UPP. He said the youth believe in Chief Chidoka’s leadership qualities and ideas for the growth and development of the state.
