The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) governorship candidate in the November 16 election in Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano, has pegged the thrust of his administration on four Cs namely: continue, complete, commission and commencement of new projects.
Obiano, who was received to a rousing welcome at All Saints Anglican Church field in Onitsha, where he commenced his zonal campaign for Anambra North Zone, saw residents of Onitsha troop out en masse to listen to him.
The candidate, who arrived the campaign ground in company of Governor Mr. Peter Obi of the state, APGA’s National chairman, Chief Victor Umeh and other APGA chieftains, had first stopped over at the Obi of Onitsha before proceeding to the rally.
Speaking after he was introduced by the governor, Obiano said his programme was premised on the four Cs of Continue, complete, commission and commencement of new projects, pledging to continue to equip selected hospitals in the State with free medical care for citizens above 70 years.
He also spoke about his planned free education in the primary and secondary schools, eradication of kidnapping, beautification of the areas already worked on by the Governor, execution of mass housing for civil
servants as well as the middle and low income earners, free vocational education and free ante-natal care, among others.
Obiano pledged to complete any project started by the Obi administration but which may not have been completed before he assumes office on March 17, 2014, adding that specific projects like Ndiukwuenu, Ebenebe, Atani, Ozubulu roads as well as bridges, malls and water projects under construction were dear to his heart and would be completed on his assumption of office.
The APGA candidate described Obi's policy of disbursing money directly to the Church and other credible organisations as yielding tremendous fruits, and assured the people that he would not only continue, but would also expand the practice since it had proved effective in the distribution of resources for the good of the people of the State.
Earlier, Umeh had called on the Anambra people to support Obiano, and to reject the attempt to impose candidates on the state as represented by Dr. Chris Ngige. He described APGA’s campaign rallies as "Operation Osmosis" and that light as represented by APGA would certainly triumph against darkness.
Obi, on his part, said seeing the crowd and the response of the people to APGA in the state, he was convinced that the campaign was a mere formality.
