The National chairman of Action Democratic Party (ADP), Yabagi Sani has assured the readiness of the party to win the November 6 governorship election in Anambra state.
He said the party was not afraid of other parties priding themselves as top contenders in the race.
Speaking on Thursday at the commissioning of the party’s state secretariat in Awka, the state capital, Sani noted that voters were democratically enlightened to be swayed by money.
He said, “The ruling All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA); Peoples Democratic Party (PDP); All Progressive Congress (APC) and other political parties priding themselves as top contenders in the governorship election cannot buy the exalted seat with money.
“Anambra voters are democratically advanced and can no longer be swayed by money. They would vote parties and candidates based on track records, general acceptability and manifesto.”
He added, “ADC is new in Nigeria; but in the last presidential election, the party came fourth. That was great achievement for us. Anambra is one state that our party is desirous to take over.
“No other political party has ever done or achieved the feat we achieved in a short time. Besides, ADP is one party that has taken recognition of the youths, women and the disabled. We have what it takes to take over Anambra.”
State chairman of the party, Chief Mathias Ameke said ADP has structures at the grassroots which would soon be activated ahead of the elections.
“We’re presenting what other parties have not provided for the people, including good governance and local government administration,” he added.
On his part, governorship aspirant of the party, Prince Afam Ume–Ezoke, son of second republican Speaker of the House of Representatives, Chief Edwin Ume-Ezoke, promised lots of package for the citizenry if given the opportunity.
He said: “The commissioning of this secretariat today is to get our party ready for the forthcoming governorship election. ADP is not in the race for the sake of being in the race. We have a lot of package for Anambra people, which we promise to deliver, if given the opportunity.”
