APC Inaugurates Electoral Committee Ahead Of Anambra 2017 Governorship Election
As part of the efforts geared towards galvanizing supports for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the forthcoming gubernatorial election in Anambra State, the Senator Benjamin Uwajumogu-led Electoral Committee has set out a machinery to ensure the overall success of the ruling party in Anambra next year.
At its inaugural meeting held yesterday in Abuja, the committee vowed to work assiduously in initiating strategies that will help deliver Anambra State to the APC.
Part of the resolutions reached by the members of the committee at the meeting include: deploying a better platform to interface with the leadership of the party and major stakeholders in Anambra state; strategising towards achieving a seamless gubernatorial campaign; among others.
The committee also resolved to convene ward, local government and state stakeholders meetings, as well as, interface with various grassroots structures, such as youths and women groups, relevant political associations, Town Unions, and Non-governmental organizations with a view to mobilizing support for the party.
It further resolved to launch an enlightenment campaign in all nooks and crannies of the state, so as to educate prospective voters of the need to align the politics of the state to the centre.
Addressing reporters at the end of the meeting, Chairman of the committee, Senator Benjamin Uwajumogu assured party faithful in the state that his committee would do everything within its powers to deliver Anambra to the APC.
The Senator who recently won his rerun election in Imo North further assured all aspirants within APC of a level playing field, adding that the task before the committee was a serious one which would not be handled with levity.
He appealed to Anambrarians to help hook up the state to the national politics for more democracy dividends, by supporting the party in the forthcoming guber poll, adding that Ndigbo has much to benefit from the APC, as against remaining in the opposition.
He thanked members of his committee for their favorable dispositions in ensuring that Anambra is welcomed to the league of APC states for more progressive development.
Members of the group later paid a courtesy visit to the Imo state Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha who is the only APC Governor in the South East, with a promise to deploy their strategies to ensure that the party wins the forthcoming poll.
The Anambra gubernatorial election is billed for early 2017 with Senator Benjamin Uwajumogu as Chairman of the Electoral Committee and Dr. Mrs. Dorothy Nwodo as Secretary.
Other members of the committee include Sen. Chris Nwankwo; Sen. Anthony Agbo; Dr. Anyim Nyerere; Dr. Chris Akomas and Hon. Tony OneWeek.
