The former gubernatorial aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr Godwin Maduka, has affirmed his resolve to defeat the ruling All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in the November 6, 2021 governorship election in the state.
He said that he would actualise that through the Accord Party.
Maduka added that his ambition to govern the state was borne out of the people’s yearning for representative democracy, governance and development in its true essence.
He gave the hint while officially joining the Accord Party at his campaign office along Enugu-Onitsha expressway Awka on Wednesday.
According to him, Accord Party, being one of the peaceful and united political parties in the country at the moment, would give him all the electoral opportunities to govern Anambra State as planed two years ago when he began his political journey.
According to him, he opted to contest the election under Accord Party to put practical effect to the expectations of ‘Ndi-Anambra’.
Maduka explained that he left PDP to contest the election in Accord Party because of the manner the PDP conducted its primary election, which produced Mr Valentine Ozigbo.
He lamented that governor Willie Obiano led-APGA government had failed the people in many areas of human capital development, especially the non-rehabilitation and construction of major roads in the state capital, Awka.
He promised to develop Anambra State to international standards.
The medical doctor cum politician was received alongside his deputy, Mr Kenneth Ohi, by the party State Chairman, Prince Batho Igwedibia, amidst funfair from supporters and party members.
In his brief remarks, the State Chairman of the party, Prince Batho Igwedibia, said Dr Maduka had all it takes to govern the state.
While describing Maduka, as the only guber candidate that did not have a political godfather in Anambra politics, he assured supporters that the party is battle-ready to win the election and take over the state government house.
