The candidate of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN) in Anambra State governorship election, Comrade Akunwata Ejoh Ojiba has said he was not in doubt of being elected as governor of the state on November 18, 2017.
He made the declaration while speaking with some supporters and canvassers involved in the parties door-to-door campaign in Ogbaru local government of the state.
He was accompanied by his running mate, Mrs. Angel Onyinye Ebele; the state party coordinator, Comrade Sam Anumba, and other party executives.
Comrade Ojiba said “I am not in doubt of being in government house. The government will be yours and you will have access to the government house to make your needs known to the government at all times.
Also speaking at Okija in Ihiala local government when he visited young people at different locations in the area, Comrade Ojiba noted that “What is happening in Anambra is frightening. When you are sponsored in an election here, your sponsor will now nominate 15 commissioners while the governor will nominate only five.
“At the end of the day, can you have the courage to tell the commissioners that they are not doing well? Can you sack him? The answer is no”, he observed.
According to him, “The problem in Anambra state is not lack of funds. There is enough money to work for the people but the obstacle to development in Anambra state is sharing of the state resources at the godfather’s table every month”, he lamented, disclosing that he has no godfather except the God Head.
Explaining that governance is very simple, he noted that the governor is a supervisor-general; he is the administrator-general. He is to delegate and supervise to make sure that job is done to specifications.
“For him to know your most important needs, you must have access to him. So, you should have access to your governor. The government house will be open to you.”‘ he said.
