Commentary: Anambra South Development Associations’ Mega Summit


Tomorrow, November 15, 2017, all roads will lead to Saint Mary’s Catholic Church Field, Ukpor in Nnewi South Local Government Area for a mega summit,

being organized by the Anambra South Development Association, an umbrella body of all political and cultural associations in Anambra South Senatorial Zone. The summit, which is to appreciate the good governance of Governor Willie Obiano in all sectors, will, among others, ratify the positions of all political blocks in Anambra South Senatorial Zone such as the Old Aguata Union, Old Nnewi Union and Ihiala as well as notable politicians from the zone on the need for Governor Obiano to complete his second term.

The Anambra South Senatorial Zone, made up of Orumba North and South, Aguata, Nnewi North and South, Ekwusigo and Ihiala local government areas, has contributed immensely to the peace and progress of the state. Politically, the zone is a formidable force in terms of structure, numerical and financial strength. The people have produced world class personalities.

Anambra South Development Association, since its inception, has been playing a vital role to ensure that the Zone is not shortchanged in any form. Gladly, the association has membership across the seven local governments. The association, after a careful appraisal of the present political scenario in the state, deems it expedient to take a remarkable political stand, especially on the Governorship election in the state.

Thus, the people of Anambra South Senatorial Zone have concluded that the shortest and surest opportunity they have to produce the next governor is by supporting en-masse the second term aspiration of Governor Willie Obiano of APGA, who has only four years, unlike candidates of other political parties, whose aspirations are eight years respectively. Native intelligence suggests that support to Governor Obiano will fetch them Governorship in the next four years. Apart from this, Governor Obiano has equally performed creditably.

The Anambra South Development Association’s mega summit will parade all political heavy weights from Anambra South Senatorial Zone such as former Governors and Deputy Governors, former and serving members of the National Assembly, Captains of industry, traditional rulers as well as different political and cultural associations. Notable personalities to grace the summit include former Governors Chukwuemeka Ezeife and Dame Virgie Etiaba, former Deputy Governors Okey Udeh and Chief Emeka Sibeudu, former Governor of the CBN, Professor Chukwuma Soludo and Dr. Ifeanyi Ubah (Capital Oil). Others are Prince Nicholas Ukachukwu, Chief Barrister Allen Onyema, Chief Ernest Obiejesi, Ambassador Bianca Ojukwu as well as other lovers of progress. Significantly, all these personalities have endorsed Governor Willie Obiano for a second term.

The summit will have Governor Obiano as the special Guest of Honour, while the speaker of the state House of Assembly, Barr. (Mrs.) Rita Maduagwu, is the Chief Host. It is expected that all political appointees from Anambra South Senatorial Zone will attend the summit holding tomorrow at Saint Mary’s Catholic Church Field, Ukpor. God bless Anambra State.
