A leading governorship aspirant in the November 6 election in Anambra State under the platform of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Lady Chidi Onyemelukwe has expressed her preparedness to provide selfless service of good governance to the people of the state if elected.
Onyemelukwe, daughter to Nigeria’s first Vice President, Late Alex Ekwueme, also promised to uphold the tenets of the founding fathers of the party.
Addressing stakeholders and party faithful at a grand reception organised in honour of Hon. Nonso Amachukwu, the newly elected Chairman of Nnewi North LGA chapter of the party, Onyemelukwe said she had got the exposure and administrative experience to restore the state on the path to greatness.
She said, “I have the exposure, requisite traits and administrative experience to drive the broad vision of restoring Anambra on the right path to greatness.
“Four years ago, in 2017, I was considered suitable to co fly the ticket of our great party, having met the requisite educational training, exposure and experience in government at the national and state levels.
“My sole motive is to provide selfless service of good governance to Ndi Anambra while upholding the tenets of the founding fathers of our party, God being my helper.”
Onyemelukwe, the deputy governorship candidate of the party in the Anambra 2017 election, said all the aspirants presenting themselves for consideration under the party’s platform were qualified to govern the state.
She called on the electorates to vote for a candidate that would see the opportunity as a service to God and to humanity, just as she appealed to the party’s electoral college to nominate a leader who would govern the state with the fear of God.
Amachukwu emerged in an extraordinary congress held last month to fill the vacuum created by the passing away of Mr. Oko Echendu who formerly held the position.
