LP intensifies campaign ahead of council polls in Anambra

17 January 2014, 13:03

Anambra - The Labour Party has intensified its campaigns, rallies and consultations ahead the January 18 re-scheduled council polls in Nnewi North Local Government Area of Anambra.

Ifeoma Ofodeme, the chairmanship candidate of the party in the council, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Nnewi on Thursday that the party had visited the four main quarters of the local government area.

Ofodeme, who spoke on the sideline of a rally organised by the party, said; "This is a last minute bid in preparation for the election coming up this Saturday."

At the Uruagu-Nnewi rally, Ofodeme restated her commitment and plans to give a purposeful governance to uplift the standard of living of the people.

Maduka Okoye, a party stalwart, urged the other political parties to shun unacceptable political acts and “be ready to face the people on the field’’.

“The collective wish of the people must count in Nnewi which has not really enjoyed any democratic dividends from the APGA-led government,” he said.

The Anambra State Independent Electoral Commission (ANSIEC) rescheduled the election following the late arrival of materials on January 11 when polls in 20 other councils were held.

The ruling party in the state, APGA, cleared the 20 chairmanship seats so far declared.
