Asaba - The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) says it has put necessary mechanism in place to enable it win the Nov.16 Anambra governorship election.
Victor Ogene, who represents Ogbaru Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, gave the assurance in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Asaba on Wednesday.
Ogene said that the people of Anambra had resolved to vote APGA for continuity.
He said Gov. Peter Obi’s administration had softened the ground for the party to win the election.
Ogene, who is the Deputy Chairman, House Committee on Media and Public Affairs, said the administration had provided basic infrastructure and human capital development in 177 communities in the state.
"I tell people that Gov. Peter Obi is the greatest salesman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) because he has been on the scene for over seven years and has impacted positively on Anambra State in different sectors .
"If you take infrastructure development, Gov. Peter Obi has done massively well and as we speak, he is still flagging of new projects.
"And he is not just flagging them off for the sake of electioneering, he is doing so with the conviction that he will complete them before he leaves office on March 17, 2014.
"And, the clincher is that, none of these projects could be said to be political or that would be a burden on an incoming administration because till date, Anambra State under Governor Peter Obi has not borrowed one kobo to finance a project."
Ogene said APGA would field a candidate that would sustain the culture and tempo of development already put in place by Obi.
He said the party had already sensitised the people on the need to ensure continuity in governance by supporting its candidate.
"APGA, as a political party, is prepared for any election any time. APGA is much more than a political party. It is a mass movement of the Igbo people and the people are there for election.
"All we need do is to inform people that it is time again to make free choice through choosing of candidates.
"The party will conduct rigorous scrutiny of its aspirants so that when the candidate emerges, he will be somebody that is acceptable to the people.’’
