ONITSHA, Anambra, Nigeria – All Progressives Congress, APC, Anambra state chapter has urged Governor of the state Chief Willie Obiano to be more proactive in handling the affairs of state.
APC in a statement issued by Director for Media and Publicity, Senator Andy Uba Governorship Campaign Organisation, Hon. Victor Afam Ogene on Thursday said that Obiano could have done better if he had listened to the citizenry and the party all this while.
Reacting to last night’s statewide broadcast by the governor over the security challenges situation in the state, Victor Afam Ogene, stated that it is sad that it took the intervention of the APC for Governor Obiano to address the state on the deteriorating security situation.
He said killings have been going on for a long time in the state but the governor looked other way, apparently clueless on how to react.
According to him, the only reason Obiano spoke yesterday was because Senator Uba had in a strongly worded statement urged him to rise up to the challenges to rescue the state. He said the party was grateful for the governor for listening to them and urge him to be more proactive next time around.
“Now that our dear governor has finally spoken, it is our earnest hope that we shall move from speeches to implementing practical solutions aimed at restoring normalcy.
“As chief security officer of Anambra state, Governor Obiano must take all necessary steps to tackle the menace of insecurity threatening to drown the state. In fact, the situation is so dire that if it requires seeking help from colleague governors and the federal authorities, Governor Obiano must not hesitate to do so,”he said .
Ogene stated that the APC in the state would continue to stand by and fight for the well-being of Ndiambra people as a true opposition party that aligns with the people.
“APC would be very proactive and responsive to the plight of ndi Anambra through good governance if elected on November 6,” Ogene stated.
