The former minister of aviation, Osita Chidoka, on Thursday, August 17, slammed the Anambra state government led by the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) party for running the state aground.

Chidoka while receiving some of his political associates and professional groups in his campaign office in Awka, Anambra state capital said: “the game is already up for the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) which has completely squandered the goodwill initially reposed in it by the people.”

The former minister contesting for the Anambra gubernatorial seat under the platform of the United Progressive Party said the people of the state are yearning for a new government with proven integrity and experience.

Chidoka said: "I stand for the people and they stand with me. We have since become a movement with an inevitable mission; a mission to take back the state to the rightful owners: ndi Anambra; a mission for a new order where resources and opportunities are not cornered by a privileged and corrupt few but for the benefit of all."

“We are fully mobilized in all the 326 electoral wards in the state. We have our supporters and volunteers everywhere; we are all working very hard and will not rest until we accomplish our mission. It is for this cause that the people will vote and protect their vote until the end."

A statement signed by Viola Okolie, the media director for the Osita Chidoka Campaign Office said the Anambra state governorship aspirant said it is easy for the UPP to spread across the state because it was built and completely owned by the people themselves.

He said the people of Anambra have completely lost faith in other political parties in the state.

“There is no way any other party can defeat UPP in Anambra state. It is a party built and owned by the people. APGA has completely failed them. APC has rejected, marginalized and dehumanized them as mere 5%, so it has no place here. The PDP has lost its bearing as a party and cannot connect with the people.

“Go and check, it is only the UPP that has genuine follower-ship across Anambra. While other parties are busy chasing shadows, we have been working hard to build our structures. The people know that the UPP is that authentic political vehicle through which they can realize their aspirations.

The time has passed when they can be bought or intimidated. They can no longer be deceived by those who believe they can buy their votes; or those who use the names and faces of our heroes past to get to power," Chidoka said.

He also said while he is familiar with the political gimmicks directed to weaken his campaign in the state those fighting to undermine his efforts and that of his party in the forthcoming Anambra election have already lost the battle.

He also commended the leadership of the party and delegates to Saturday’s governorship primary for their resilience in the face of attacks by anti-people forces who attempted to scuttle the exercise.
