Andy Uba Will End Complaints Of Marginalisation By Anambra Indigenes, Okeke Assures

The Deputy Governor of Anambra state Dr. Nkem Okeke who defected to All Progressives Congress from the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) within the week has said that Senator Andy Uba’s emergence as Governor of Anambra State will bring to end the complaints of marginalization by the people of the state.

Okeke said he believed that Uba has the capacity to integrate Anambra into the mainstream of national politics so that the state will sit rightfully at the centre and be accommodated in the scheme of things.

The director of media and publicity of Senator Andy Uba Governorship Campaign Organisation (SAUGCO) Hon. Victor Afam Ogene in a statement quoted Okeke as saying during a dinner hosted for him by Uba in Abuja Friday night: “All over Anambra, and indeed the South East region, the dominant complaint is the feeling of alienation by our people in the affairs of our country. And when you are so challenged, do you further go into your cocoon, or do you seek accommodation and understanding from your other compatriots?

“For me, the Nigerian project is bigger and desirable than the craving of any individual, or component part of the country. We must all sit as equals, on the table of brotherhood, to negotiate the needs and aspirations of all our people, including the Southeast”.

The statement further quoted Okeke as describing the APC flag bearer as one whose wealth of experience surpassed that of all the other candidates, and for that reason, he had implicit confidence in Senator Uba’s capacity to reintegrate Anambra into the mainstream of national political reckoning.

Okeke pledged to offer “total support” towards the emergence of Senator Uba as Governor-Elect after the November 6, 2021 election.
