Peter Obi: Anambra North will produce next governor

Governor Peter Obi of Anambra State has once again reiterated his commitment to Anambra North producing his successor, insisting it was necessary in order to maintain equity, fairness and justice. Governor Obi renewed his commitment while answering questions on his party, All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) commitment on Thursday during a Town Hall meeting at Onitsha North Local Government headquarters.
“Our leader, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu died a man of honour and he fought the cause of justice till his last breath. Together with him, we made a firm commitment that after my humble self that the next governor of the state would come from Anambra North. During the electioneering in 2010, all the candidates promised to support Anambra North. I urge them to be honourable and keep their words,” Obi said. He also debunked the crisis in APGA insisting that the party remained one.
On how a candidate would emerge, Obi said that the decision to give the state the best candidate was that of the people of the Senatorial Area and called on them to cultivate strength of character that would enable them to remain focused and resist undue distraction from any quarter.
Obi also spoke on other issues. Commenting on the second Niger Bridge, Obi said that he had lost count of how many times the issue was raised by the South-East and himself personally with the President and the Minister of Works, as well as other relevant stakeholders. He appealed to the people to thank the president as the project is on course.
On the rumoured plan by the state to expel non indigenes from the markets in the state, the governor said there was no iota of truth in the rumour. He called on everybody resident in the state to be law-abiding and perform their civic obligations at all times.

Following the commendation of the improved security situation in the country, he  assured that it will continue to improve everyday as part of the long term plans to make the state remain attractive to investors.
