 [ Masterweb Reports ] -  The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) on Monday flagged off its governorship campaign in Anambra State in grand style amidst mammoth crowd that filled the expansive Ekwueme Sqaure, Awka.


Filled to full capacity, with even more people outside the square, Gov. Peter Obi presented the APGA candidates, Dr. Willie Obiano and Dr. Nkem Okeke to the National Chairman of the Party, Chief Victor Umeh, who in turn presented them to the people of the State. Both were accompanied by their wives.


Their impressive academic qualification and experiences were read as justification that they are worthy to be entrusted with the fate of a State.


Speaking at the rally, Chief Victor Umeh who welcomed many people that joined APGA, including Anayo Obiakor, the Chairman of Democratic People’s Party; Ifeatu Obi Okoye, the former Chairman of the PDP and former Director Mobilization of Ifeany Uba campaign; Chief Arthur  Obi Nwandu, former Gubernatorial candidate of the PDP; Former House members, Hon Echezona Okechi, Hon. Obiajulu Okeke, among many others who came  with their teeming members said that the major attraction of people into APGA was because Peter Obi had delivered more than any Governor in Nigeria.


They described APGA as a great party in which Dim Chukwumeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu found fulfillment serving his people. He said no good son of Igbo land will go against APGA to support any other party, especially those deporting Igbos from their states.


Describing Obi as the most faithful APGA member, who had remained committed to APGA and was instrumental towards its growth, he  said that after  8  years of of governing Anambra and setting records in the development of all sectors, that it was time to replace him with another person as good as himself, who will continue with his policies. “In Willie and Nkem, we found those with the pedigree to replicate Obi’s magic in Anambra State”, Umeh said


“Gov. Obi is an exceptional Governor. He did many monumental things in the State. In Education, he returned school to the Churches and is supporting them, to rebuild the returned schools. In health, he accredited many health institutions. In road, he has built over 800 Kilometers of roads that his predecessor claims some as his. In all sectors, it is the same story”, Umeh submitted


In his own speech, Governor Obi  Said that the important thing in the State today is that Anambra people elects a good person that will continue to build on the achievements of the past. Insisting that he was convinced that Dr. Willie Obiano and Dr. Nkem Okeke were the people, he called on the people of the State to vote them in and ignore those prancing about without managing their lives believing they will manage that of a State.


Obi who said he had reviewed what those that wanted to become Governors of Anambra State were promising to do, said it was what his Government had either done or is doing.


He assured that he would not relent for one moment and that he would keep working assiduously for a crime-free State. On health, he said he had been investing billions in the provision of infrastructure to be followed by the unveiling of free ante-natal care in January to be continued by APGA Government.  He revealed that Primary and Secondary Education will soon be free as part of the final push, after ensuring that all the schools have teachers on all their basic subjects.


On the issue of housing, Obi said after the completion of Ngozika Phase 1 and 2 that he would flag-off the 1st phase of Mass Housing in the next four days, for civil Servant and medium income earne
