Onitsha - A lawmaker, Chigbo Enwezor, on Sunday in Onitsha, Anambra, said that APGA success at the just-concluded Anambra governorship election was because the electorate looked beyond parochial motives while voting.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that INEC declared Dr. Willie Obiano, APGA candidate, winner of the polls.
This came after a supplementary election in 15 polling units of the 21 council areas of the state.
Enwezor (APGA), who is representing Onitsha North 1 Constituency in the Anambra House of Assembly, told NAN that the electorate went all out to vote without attaching sentiment to their judgement.
“I want to thank Anambra electorate as well as members of PDP, APC and LP parties that looked beyond cheap sentiments, political and newspaper propaganda to vote for APGA.”
“It is clear that the people can see the purposeful and developmental leadership APGA had given the state in the past eight years.”
“And they voted for continuity in development and provision of social welfare,” he said.
The lawmaker said that APGA would always operate an open and people-oriented government.
“With this victory, our party’s door is wide open to welcome our brothers and sisters from other parties.”
“We call on them to join us to continue to move the state forward since APGA always runs an all-inclusive government.”
“Nationally, APGA is known for developmental politics.”
“We are calling on all that have progressive mind to join us as we take development in the state higher,” he added.
The lawmaker also praised residents of Onitsha for their turnout in the election.
He said that the development showed a lot of political awareness among the residents of the commercial city.
