Okeke calls for credible poll, support for APGA’s Willie Obiano
The deputy governor of Anambra State, Nkem Okeke, has called on voters to re-elect Governor Willie Obiano in tomorrow’s election.Okeke made the plea during an interactive session with journalists in Awka yesterday where he also urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and all stakeholders to ensure the poll was free, fair and credible.
He reminded INEC that all eyes were focused on the Anambra exercise. He enjoined the commission to give a good account of itself and shame people intent at rigging. He also praised the achievements of Obiano in the areas of education, health and agriculture.
Okeke expressed support for zoning of the governorship, saying: “We need to continue with rotational government in Anambra. Though it may not be the best, but let us try to accommodate the process.”
He said: “If farmers can grow and harvest their crops, if industries manufacture goods and sell them and people are employed, you are improving lives in Anambra. This is what Obiano is doing for people in the state.”
