The flagbearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on November 6, 2021, Anambra State governorship election, Valentine Ozigbo, has taken his development plan to rescue the state from infrastructural decay and under-development abroad.

Ozigbo said he hinged the suspension of his campaign across the 21 local councils of the state on the fact that everyone deserves to live in dignity and die with dignity.

He said that as a true son of the state and leader, he found the latest reports of violence disturbing and condemnable while calling for a ceasefire.

The PDP governorship candidate further said that the suspension of his campaign activities in Anambra State, occasioned by the worsening security situation, was because every life is precious and ought to be protected and preserved.

The former President and Group Chief Executive Officer of Transcorp, while giving his blessing to the recent “Ka Anambra Chawapu Essay Competition,” sponsored by the Valentine Chineto Ozigbo (VCO) Foundation and convened by the Woman Leader of the Federation of PDP Students, Anambra State Chapter, Vivian Onwudiegwu, noted that any investment in youth development would not be a waste.

Ozigbo also used the opportunity of his Diaspora campaign to encourage the youths to buy into his project and have an opportunity for expression, especially as it relates to government, politics and their future,

In a statement by his media aide, Aziza Uzo, yesterday, he said, if elected into office as governor, he would explore short-term and long-term solutions to tackle Anambra’s insecurity problems.

Ozigbo, according to the statement, a copy of which was made available to newsmen, is supporting the establishment of state police.

He said that the “partnership approach” in his ‘Ka Anambra Chawapu’ manifesto could serve as an effective tool for rapid infrastructural growth within the state.

“We will encourage wealthy Anambra indigenes to invest in their localities by equaling their investments,” Ozigbo said.
