David-Chyddy Eleke in Awka
The Anambra State Deputy Governor, Dr Nkem Okeke, has said the latest zoning formula in the state would save it the huge finances deployed by politicians in the state to run for elections.

Okeke, who spoke with journalists in a media conference, said Anambra remains one of the most politically conscious state in the country, and that it is evident in the large number of persons running for the governorship position in Saturday’s election.

He scored the state governor, Chief Willie Obiano high in performance in the last three and half years, saying he has worked hard to touch all areas of the state through inclusive governance and deserves to win a second term.
Meanwhile, the Labour Party (LP) in the state has described the recent endorsement of Obiano by some members of the party as illegal.

Publicity Secretary of the party in the state, Mr. Eddy Okoye, stated this at a news conference in Awka, describing the endorsement as selfish, illegal and a demonstration of anti-party behavior

He therefore announced the suspension of the members who were involved in the endorsement.
Those suspended are Uche Ugwuoji, Ejike Onuora, Alex Obi, Bertram Enukora, Ifeanyi Mbagwu, Greg Mmerube, Longinus Nnajiofor and Okecima Anizoba.
