As the Progressive People Alliance candidate Mr. Godwin Chukwunenye Ezeemo officially commenced his Anambra governorship election campaign, he has vowed to standby his manifesto if wins the race come November 18, 2017.
PPA faithful from Lagos and some other states graced the mega rally to assure the benefactor of the party that they really meant well for him and will standby him until his governorship ambition comes to fruition .
Ezeemo, who flagged off his campaign at Onitsha yesterday identified security, health, agriculture, power, education, empowerment and environment as major areas to focus on if he wins the race.
According to him, “the intention I have for my state is a good one. I am convinced that I can help my people to enjoy what I have enjoyed in the white manâ€™s land, that is why I am here to ask them to give me the opportunity to give them what they lack.
“I am fully prepared for this, and I have come up with what we call SHAPE. What SHAPE stands for is; Security, Health, Agriculture, Power, Education, Empowerment and Environment. Itâ€™s a seven point agenda thing. Among these, I have priority and that is power. All the agenda will be simultaneously handled, but where I will spend more money is power generation.
:From my experience here, I found out that power supply is very epileptic. To start with, in this company where we are now, we have three generators there as you can see. There is no way any business can run like that. No business can survive powering a company with generator in this country, and that is why I saw power is a priority to us.
“Everything we have in our programme hinges on power, if we generate power here, it will encourage people to come in here and invest, and if they come in here to invest, jobs would be created for our people.”
Ezeemo, who said he decided to chose a youth as his Depuy because its time for the younger generation to take over governance and public administration in Anambra state, however assured that he would provide social justice and security to the people of Anambra state.
The issue, he said is to regenerate ourselves especially the youths to redeem them from long suffering and deprivation .
He also used the opportunity of the rally to sign a social contract with Ndi-Anambra promising that he would standby his manifesto and all the ingredients thereto assuring also that he will amongst other things reduce cost of governance and other frivolities in government.
Also speaking, former presidential candidate of APGA Mr.Gorge Okoye said that Ezeemo has no business with government money and it is important thay they vote for him.
The Deputy National Chairman (South) of PPAP, Hon.Edwin Okonkwo explained that there is no rancour in the party and that Ezeemo has deployed his wealth in developing and investing in Anambra state . On the other hand national chairman of PPA comrade Peter Ameh described Ezeemo has a man of integrity and an embodiment of honesty and humility.
His Deputy Mr. Stanley Chigbo Nkwoka told the people that Ezeemo has come to lay a solid foundation for massive development in Anambra state, expressing confidence that PPA will crush other political parties in the 2017 governorship election .
