Opposition Not Strong Enough To Uproot APGA From Anambra — Obiokoye

Raymond Ozoji, Awka

Special Adviser to Governor Willie Obiano on Political Matters, Hon. Ifeatu Obiokoye, has reiterated the fact that the opposition is not strong enough to uproot the ruling All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) from Anambra state.

Obiokoye, who was optimistic that the forthcoming November 6 governorship poll was already a done deal for APGA, maintained that it was the All Progressives Grand Alliance that redeemed Anambra from the tutelage and captivity of the PDP-led maladministration.

The governor’s political adviser who spoke with our correspondent in his office at the government house Awka concerning a possible successor who will consolidate on the gains of the Willie Obiano administration as well as take Anambra state to the next level, said  APGA would mesmerize the citizenry with its candidate and that the projects of the state government would provide leeway for the party’s electoral conquest.

He said Anambra citizens had not forgotten the dark days of the Peoples Democratic Party when lawlessness and jungle justice were the order of the day, adding that those were the days when public utilities were set ablaze and hostage-taking held sway in the state.

Obiokoye opined that APGA enabled Anambra state to rediscover itself and that Governor Willie Obiano’s sophisticated security architecture played a very pivotal role in creating an enabling atmosphere for everyone to thrive including all those aspiring to become the next governor.

He said Anambra had not witnessed broad daylight bank robberies and other major incidents in the last seven years due to the security strategy put in place by the incumbent governor.

The former House of Assembly member of the old Anambra noted that the opposition might dwell in noise-making and rantings, but the governor’s achievements which would be presented to Ndi-Anambra in a few months time, would leave opposition elements groping in the dark.

Obiokoye, who also recalled that APGA provided a veritable platform for ex-Governor Peter Obi to rule Anambra for eight years, said the party had continued to keep faith with its manifesto and electoral promises, stressing that irrespective of the machinations of malignant elements, the party would win the November 6 governorship election just like it did in 2017 when it won the 21 local government areas of the state and the opposition conceded defeat.
