The African Democratic Congress (ADC) gubernatorial aspirant in the forthcoming Anambra governorship election, Nze Akachukwu Sullivan Nwankpo, on Monday, said the will of God would prevail in who becomes the next governor of the state.
Nwankpo spoke during his visit to the country home of Chief Okey Ralph Nwosu the National Chairman of ADC, on Monday, to meet with the LGAs, and Wards Executive members of the party.
The highly elated aspirant who was astounded by the large turnout of party members who welcomed him, said he has identified with ADC party, the hardworking Excos, and its enthusiastic members.
He disclosed his readiness to work with the party leadership to wrestle power from the ruling All Progressives Grand Alliance APGA.
While calling on the delegates to vote for him at the primary election, Nwankpo said “it is only God who makes kings.”
“I pray that the wish of the people will come to pass. Let the will of God prevail in Anambra state. An ADC government will ensure that all Anambra families benefit from their government. We will provide jobs and public services like healthcare. Our great party ADC will have a new deal with ndi Anambra. It is time to give the voice back to the people,” he said.
Nwankpo also talked about unity of purpose, hard work and commitment in the forthcoming election. He enjoined all party faithful to take the message of hope to the people.
According to him, ADC is the next best thing to happen to Anambra state. He reminded the excited crowd that God will fight the battle ahead, and promised to take the party to a whole new level if given the guber mandate.
In his response, the National Chairman of ADC, Chief Okey Ralph Nwosu, assured everyone present that the party primary election will be transparent, credible, free and fair.
“It’s hard to believe what we hear and read about the charades that have taken place in both the ruling party and the major opposition parties in the state. It is quite unfortunate that internal democracy has been murdered in the so called big parties. Many party members and even the aspirants were disenfranchised, due process was thrown to the dust bin, and illegality festered,” he said.
He added, “You see, ADC is a model party, we don’t condole political rascality and fraudulent activities, we have zero tolerance for corrupt practices. In ADC, there is no such thing called cabals, we do not practice politics of imposition where the highest bidder gets the ticket. Let me tell you, before now, many popular aspirants had approached ADC seeking to buy our nomination forms, but when we look at their public records which is laden with baggage, we simply ignored them.”
“We have a party with clean bill of health. ADC is not a town union party, it cuts across all ethnic divides, with national outlook. A party that enjoys massive support from the Nigerian youths, Labour leaders, Civil Society Organisations, Professional bodies, ex-presidents, political juggernauts, the religious and clergy, and higly revered traditional rulers in all the geopolitical zones in Nigeria. ADC is an alternative that treats everybody the same, not special favors.”
The African Democratic Congress (ADC) will hold her gubernatorial primary election on June 30 to elect the party’s governorship candidate ahead of the Anambra governorship election coming up on November 6.
