‘Obiano will lose gov poll’
9 May 2017 National
The Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has said that nothing will stop the All Progressives Congress from taking over Anambra State in the November 18 poll.
He said the state Governor, Willie Obiano, should be writing his handover note to an APC governor.
Okorocha stated this while inaugurating the Rochas Peoples Movement in Anambra State on Monday.
He said the main objective of the movement was to register grassroots presence in the state.
Okorocha, who was represented by the South-South/South-East coordinator of the RPM, Dr. Simon Nwulu, said he owed the Igbo nation a duty of proper direction in Nigerian politics.
He said, “The Igbo can no longer belong to regional political parties. We must belong to the mainstream. The APC is that place to belong.
“Anambra is critical in Igbo politics. So, we shall all come down here to deliver the state to the ruling All Progressives Congress. We have the capacity, we have the capability.
“The APC is the structure for the emancipation of the Igbo nation. No man born of a woman can stop us from taking over Anambra State come November 18.
“At any polling unit during the election, no fewer than 63 members of the Rochas Peoples Movement would be present to man the units and protect our votes. That’s the magic.
“We shall bring the Imo formula down here and by the time we have finished, Obiano and APGA would just pack and go.”
He asked the members of the movement to have their voter cards ready, saying that would be a major criterion for confirmation of appointments.
He asked ward coordinators of the movement to mobilise the APC members to register in the ongoing voter registration for the purpose of the November 18 election
Speaking, the Anambra State coordinator of the movement, Chief Olisa Onyeka, thanked Okorocha for coming over to help the state APC.
Onyeka said, “You have demonstrated the brother’s keeper spirit for which the Igbo are known.
“We are assuring you that we are ever ready to deliver Anambra State to the APC in that election.”
Meanwhile, the APC has warned the state government to stop destroying the posters of its governorship aspirants in the state.
In a press statement in Awka, the Anambra State capital, on Monday by the APC state Publicity Secretary, Mr. Okelo Madukaife, the party said Obiano was inviting anarchy by so doing.
