Managing Director, National Inland Water Authority (NIWA) and governorship aspirant under the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief George Muoghalu has described the November 6 governorship election in Anambra state as the best opportunity for the party to over power.
He regretted that the party had not occupied the government house since inception, saying the forthcoming poll was an opportunity the party could not afford to miss.
Moghalu who spoke yesterday at the state party Secretariat while formally declaring his ambition to fly the party flag in the forthcoming governorship election, said he was at the party house to seek support from the leadership and members of the party.
He said, “We’ve not been in power in this state. This is our best opportunity we can’t afford to allow it slip off our hands. We must go to the election with a candidate that can win and is acceptable across party lines.
“My political trajectory is that of consistency, loyalty, commitment and dedication. Hence, the time for payback has come because loyalty has a reward.
“We can’t build for another to occupy. We must put the cap on the head it fits. November 6 election won’t be easy because every party will bring their best. No sentiments.”
Describing himself as experienced in both both public and private sectors, the guber hopeful noted that it was a difficult task to access himself, saying he was ready to subject himself to public scrutiny for their judgement.
He further plegded to rescue the state through his 13-point agenda, which he said would be unveiled soon.
“I’m not a joiner of APC, I’m a founder. People must learn how to queue. Every primary election is a family business. Let this campaign not be personalized but be based on facts, what you can do for the state. Let’s be totally united,” he added.
Responding, State Chairman of the party, Chief Basil Ejidike described the aspirant as consistent and loyal party man who has the qualities needed to become the next Governor of the state, praying God to grant him his desires.
Contributing, Federal Character Commissioner for Anambra State, Rev UcheIbeabwuchi described Moghalu as a visionary man on a mission to salvage the State, urging party faithful to support his aspiration.
Another party chieftain, Chief Barr Tagbo Ike stressed that Moghalu had got all it takes to lead the State, enjoining the party to do all it could to give the state the best candidate.
Highpoint of the occasion was the presentation and handing over of 11 operational Siena buses to the State Chairman and members of his Executive for the party’s operations.
