Buni charged the committee to work as a team and to carry everyone on board, and advised them to reconcile seeming differences within members of the party which might have arise following the governorship primary, for the party to confront the election with a united front.
“I have no doubt this powerful committee under the chairmanship of His Excellency Governor Hope Izoduma of Imo state, will do us proud and capture Anambra state to APC.
“I am glad to say with sense of satisfaction the growing fortunes of the party in Anambra state and the South East geopolitical zone in general has increased our hope for victory. This will no doubt increase our chance of winning the election with landslide victory.
“May l call on the committee to concentrate on issues that will add value to the success of the party and avoid issues that may distract us from the path of victory. We should remain resolute, committed and law abiding throughout the assignment and beyond,” he said.
Chairman of the committee, Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State, assured the party that the committee will do everything possible to win the state for APC.
” We have been carefully selected to go and talk to the people of Anambara State to market our candidate and to make promises and tell them the programmes the party has for them and also preach to them to understand the need of been a member of a national ruling party and the advantages inherent in such opportunity and to convince our people in Anambara State to vote massively for APC.
“For the aggrieved aspirants, of course, usually the case after each exercise, there will be people who are aggrieved, who will express one form of disappointment or the other but as usual, the party has internal mechanism for resolving such issues. Going forward, I think we will deploy that mechanism to ensure that everybody is carried along and we will do a very united campaign for the victory we are looking for.
“If you look at Nigeria today, you will know that the party to beat is APC because APC has been able to demonstrate amidst global crisis; economic and political crisis that we have the capacity to secure the future of the country and that they have done by coming out strongly to combat the hostility occasioned by the Boko Haram activities, the issue of banditry, issue of food insecurity, social interventions. This government has done a lot and that is the party to beat. Look around, is there any political party remaining? The only party that is healthy, united today in Nigeria is APC. So why will you not join a ruling party to be part of the Nigerian projects?
Also speaking, APC candidate in the November 6 governorship election in Anambra, Andy Uba said, “We are going to do our work, go through all the local governments and wards to make sure that… and secondly we will bring those that we constested with me, we will go and plead with them to come and work with me. It will be one victory for everybody.”
