The Senator representing Anambra North Senatorial Zone, Princess Stella Oduah, has promised to deliver the district to the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the forthcoming gubernatorial election in the state.
Oduah who spoke at an APC leaders and stakeholders meeting in Awka, the state capital, said she is committed to ensuring victory for the party in the forthcoming governorship election.
The senator had a month ago decamped from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to APC during a meeting in Abuja.
Oduah who was represented by Princess Nwaka Ononuju said: “We are deploying everything in our arsenal to ensure victory for the APC in Anambra North come November 6(2021) and this is not a contest I take lightly, as I have immense respect and confidence in the ability of Senator Andy Uba to turn, and position, Anambra to a state every Anambrarian can be proud of.
‘That said, I am making a personal commitment to ensure victory for our great party and the work has already begun, in the way and manner our various support groups, NGOs and teeming supporters spread across the length and breadth of Anambra North have already been deployed in a massive polling unit to polling unit campaign drive.’
The Senator, known for aggressive Neighbour to Neighbour campaign strategy, described her defection to the APC “as a well thought out move, which has the best interests of Anambra state at heart.
Meanwhile, the leadership of the party has said its members have resolved to work together to ensure that its candidate, Uba wins the election.
The chairman of the party in the state, Mr Basil Ejidike who addressed party leaders in the wards and local government areas in the state said the party would unite behind Uba and win Anambra State.
‘Let’s get this once and for all, the primary election is over and we have a candidate today. He is Senator Andy Uba and that is settled. We will all work to ensure that he emerges as the next governor, and we are ready to ensure that APGA leaves the government house.’
