Anambra South Agenda 2021, a body for the actualization of the vision for a governor of Anambra South extraction has insisted that a governor of Anambra South Agenda cannot be negotiated or wished away for any reason.
The group led by Ven. Chris Orajekwe, made this assertion yesterday at Nnewi, during the organisation’s end of year parley and induction ceremony for the women wing.
Orajekwe harped on the need for togetherness in the group to ensure that a governor of Anambra South extraction is actualized.
He insisted that the vision was non partisan and devoid of any party affiliation, because they want the best from Anambra South to emerge as the governor come 2021.
The meeting was used for the ratification of positions and constitution of the women wing of the group, whom he said was now part of the steering committee of the group.
He described women as the power house of any group and thanked them for their steadfastness, while urging them to go to the nooks and crannies of Anambra South to preach the message from the group, which lays emphasis on the emergence of the next governor of the state from Anambra South senatorial zone.
The women were thankful for the actualization of the group as they spoke one after the other in support of the vision and mission of the group. Mrs. Amaka Mbadiwe, the Deputy Coordinator Women Wing Anambra South Zone Agenda 2021 in her speech during the meeting thanked God for the vision to actualize this dream.
She said in Anambra, Anambra South has suffered immense hardship because of the neglect of the area by past administration, which lays emphasis on the many ecological problems facing them in the various local governments.
She gave instances with the gully erosion at 100 foot road, which has destroyed properties worth millions of naira without any government coming to their aid. She maintained that there was no better time than now for the actualization of such dream of having a governor from Anambra South in Agu Awka come 2021.
In this same vein, Mrs Philomena Chukwunyere from Ihiala stated that the vision is in the right direction, and called for all hands to be on deck as they are fully in support of the vision.
She wondered why someone from the central zone will even think of coming out to vie for a position they have saturated. He advised Hon. Tony Nwoye to stay clear of the fiber election in Anambra state as it would amount to him wasting his resources, because even his kith and kin would support a candidate from Anambra South.
Others spoke in one voice saying that they are in full support of the vision to have a governor of Anambra South extraction and that the time for such is now. They said it’s only a blind person who will think otherwise because of the so much problems facing Anambra south and called on women to ensure that the vision is actualized.
