Osumenyi, Nov. 10, 2017 -- With just a few days to go in the Anambra Governorship Election, `Ikukuoma Solidarity Movement’, has collapsed its political structure and rallied support to Gov. Willie Obiano to assist his re-election. The event, which took place at Unity Park, Osumenyi, Nnewi South Local Government Area (LGA) attracted no fewer than 400,000 loyalists of Prince Nicholas Ukachukwu with resolve to vote en masse for APGA. Virtually all the speakers during the event bore testimonies to the unique administrative style of Gov. Obiano, which had made him to deserve a second term. The convener of the programme, Ukachukwu, re-assured the governor that the ``massive crowd that turned out for the event are genuine people, who believe in Obiano's honesty and are ready to work for the victory of APGA in the Nov. 18 Governorship Election’’. Ukachukwu described Gov. Obiano as leader with genuine commitment toward the development of the state. ``Ndi Anambra are safe in hands’’. Member representing Orumba North and South Federal Constituency, Chief Ben Nwankwo said the political heavyweights and their supporters in the entire three senatorial districts declared support for Gov. Obiano. ``With this, the coast is clear for landslide for APGA in the upcoming election.’’ In separate remarks, the Speaker, Anambra State House of Assembly, Mrs Rita Maduagwu and the Member representing Nnewi South 2 Constituency in the State Assembly, Mr Kingsley Iruba remarked that Ukachukwu was a man of integrity. The Chairman of the governor's Re-election Campaign Committee, Chief Victor Umeh acknowledged that APGA had never defeated Ukachukwu in his area. He added that his open endorsement of the governor had offered great prospects for APGA in its efforts to forge a united political front for Ndigbo. Gov. Willie Obiano commended the people for the massive turnout to support him and assured them that their support would not be in vain as he had mapped out strategies to affect their lives better in his second term. He harped on the need for the people to vote for him and protect their votes, saying that his government would intensify efforts in areas of road infrastructure, health and agriculture, if re-elected. The governor was received with chants of solidarity by the crowd that turned out for the event. ##
