Anambra 2014: Stakeholders root for lawmaker

| January 18, 2013 | 0 Comments

The call by Anambra State Governor, Peter Obi, to elect his successor from Anambra North senatorial district during the 2014 gubernatorial election in the state may have been embraced by majority of the electorate as various stakeholders are now working towards that direction.

Although, other senatorial districts are still questioning the rationale behind the governor’s call for the choice of his successor from that district, because according to them, Obi is merely a member of the ruling All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, and as such cannot decide the zoning formula for other political parties in the state.

But many who saw the call as a mark of equity, justice and fair play, have already started shopping for an appropriate candidate from the district.

One of such groups that reasoned with the governor is the Ogbaru Stakeholders’ Forum. Ogbaru is one of the seven local government areas of the state that made up Anambra North senatorial district.

Boasting that there are many credible candidates from the district that can make good gubernatorial material for the 2014 governorship race, the forum said it has adopted an astute journalist and a member representing Ogbaru Federal Constituency, Hon. Afam Ogene, as their rightful candidate, at least for now.
