The All Progressives Congress (APC) is making concrete preparations to clinch victory during the forthcoming Anambra gubernatorial election.
One of such preparations is the recent inauguration of a campaign council comprising mostly of state leaders like Governor Hope Uzodinma, Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, and Governor Yahaya Bello.
The council was set up in Abuja on Tuesday, August 17, by the chairman of the ruling party's caretaker committee, Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe.

Inaugurating the committee, Buni noted that the members were selected based on their individual abilities and the certainty that they will work together to deliver the state in the election.
Buni expressed hope that under the leadership of Governor Uzodinma, the council will come out with brilliant success in its task.
"The members of the committee were carefully selected owing to your individual capacities and the belief that you will, collectively as a committee, deliver the state to the party.
"You are enjoined to work as a team and to carry everyone on board. You are also advised to reconcile seeming differences within members of the party which might have arisen following the governorship primary, for us to confront the election with a united front.
"I have no doubt this powerful committee under the chairmanship of His Excellency Governor Hope Izoduma of Imo state, will do us proud and capture Anambra state to APC."

Meanwhile, barely 24 hours after the former Anambra South senator, Andy Uba, declared the winner of the governorship primary election of the APC in the state, the minister of labour and employment, Chris Ngige, had reacted.
In his reaction to Uba's emergence as the party's standard-bearer, the APC publicity secretary in the state, Okelo Madukaife, said former governor Ngige had proposed Tuesday, June 29, for the repeat primaries.
