Labour Party chief vows Anambra electorate
As key political parties and their members, especially governorship aspirants, continue to strategise, restructure and refocus their membership bases ahead of next year’s governorship election in Anambra State, the Labour Party (LP) recently commenced the election of a new set of officials.
Leading members of the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) to supervise and inaugurate the new executive in the state, its National Chairman, Alhaji Abdulkadir Abdulsalam, urged the electorate to speak with their votes by voting out the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and All Progressives Congress (APC).
He said: “Anambra will no longer be a zone of on-the-air television-show development, but will be turned into a zone of practical, visible and tangible developments, unlike what we have seen in the last two decades under the PDP, APGA and APC leaderships.
Speaking to the delegates drawn from the 21 councils of the state, Abdulsalam pointed out that LP remains the only party with human symbol and multiple membership in every home; hence was now poised to stand up against the two decades old worn-out lies and inactivity of the premier political parties.
He added: “…Because LP is focused, disciplined and united as a family, we are going to lead the way in Anambra State. We have just put together a formidable result-orientated executive that has vowed to turn things around the distraught citizens of the state, who have been wearied by decades of political lies, deceit and deception by the APC, APGA and PDP.
“We are coming with people of integrity, ability and industry, who have served the nation and humanity in various areas of life, who are daily trooping in and picking our membership cards.”
Abdulsalam exhorted one of the party’s governorship aspirants, Grp-Capt. Nnamdi Nnoruka (rtd), who he described him as a man of ability, zeal and inviolable industry and understands the complexity and idiosyncrasy of Anambra polity.
Nnoruka, who has opened the floodgate of top ex-military officers entry into the party in preparation for his governorship bid, commended the peaceful disposition of the delegates, urging them to join hands to take the party to every home and offer constructive criticism, suggestions and ideas until victory was achieved next year.
In his inaugural remark, Chief Ugochukwu Emeh, who was elected Chairman, vowed to lead the party to its first governorship victory in the Southeast, especially in the face of mass disenchantment by the citizens who were already tired of the cheap, worn-out lies of those in the saddle.
Officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), including Samuel Nimeh, Nkiru Gibson and Reginald Onyeukwu were on hand to monitor the congress held at the Eastend Hotels, Awka, expressed satisfaction with the process and outcome.
