It was like a dream as the entire Stakeholders of Idemmili North and South Local Government Areas also known as Ide Nna stormed Ngozika Estate, Awka yesternight being the 20th of October 2021 converged and enjoined the Accord Party Deputy Governorship Candidate Chief Obi Kenneth Ifeatu to pledge his loyalty and support to the Distinguished Senator Dr Andy Uba MFR, the Gubernatorial Candidate of APC.
He also joined the wind of the progressives, picked up the Broom of Change and promised to work assiduously in making sure that Sen. Uba wins the November 6th Governorship Election in Ide Nna and environs. According to him, I have never witnessed such acceptability of a Candidate in Anambra political system, hence Sen. Andy Uba. It is indeed a home calling agenda for any progressive minded Anambrarian.
In furtherance to the provisions of the law, Dr. Godwin Maduka stands disqualified because they both enjoyed a joint ticket. You may recall that on February 2019, the Supreme Court, sacked David Lyon of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as Governor-Elect of Bayelsa State, barely 24 hours to his inauguration on the grounds that his deputy, Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo presented false information to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in aid of his qualification for the November 16 governorship election in the State and David Lyon was effected because they had a joint ticket as constitutionally stipulated.
Be that as it may, the Governorship ambition of Dr. Godwin Maduka, a known Philanthropist is now shattered and debilitated as he faces INEC official pronouncement and disqualification which resulted to his Deputy decamped and joined an opposition party, the party of the progressives in the bid to connect Anambra State to the center.
Furthermore, you may agree with me that this is the first time in history a political party and his Candidate is enjoying such enormously massive acceptability across the State. Also nothing that Sen. Uba’s acceptability is also attributed to his goodness while at the presidency, his experience and foresightedness in the corridor of power and his anticipated developmental values to Ndi Anambra if elected as the Governor come 6th November.
