The decision of who takes over the mantle of leadership in our dear State is a very critical one that has to be taken on the plane of pragmatism devoid of sentiment. The recurring attacks on innocent people is fast becoming a norm especially in places like Onitsha, Awka, Ogidi, Obosi, Nkpor etc.
People now live in fear and scamper for safety once it’s 6pm irrespective of whatever business engagements one still has for the day. The growing trend of insecurity in Anambra State is affecting commercial services which may ultimately cripple the economy unless a solution is proffered urgently.
The fact that the Peoples Democratic Party is taking over from the ruling party come November 6th is no longer news, what will be the priority of the party is to field someone who can guarantee equity and security of lives and properties in Anambra State. Dr. Godwin Maduka fits in as the only aspirant that has been proven and can be trusted because of his antecedents in all aspects of life most especially his giant strides in the field of medicine.
Besides his academic qualification and achievements in pain management, his ability to transform a remote community that was not known a couple of years ago to a modern city with his personal resources stands him out. What he has been able to achieve in the areas of quality healthcare delivery, good roads, efficient water supply, security, religion, justice etc as an individual some of our leaders with public funds have not been able to achieve such in many years.
Therefore, all PDP delegates should know that the future of Anambra State is in their hands and as such they should act in tandem with truth, merit, records and capacity so as to elect Dr. Godwin Maduka who has all it takes to wrestle power out of the ruling party and also equipped with leadership skills needed to perform successfully as a Governor.
