Guber poll: “I'm not going to build Dubai in Anambra but...” - Barr Damian Okolo

The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) governorship aspirant, Barr Damian Okolo on Wednesday promised to run an all-inclusive government if voted in the November 6  election in Anambra State.

He listed peace and security as major cardinal focus of his administration.

Addressing journalists in Nnewi, the industrial city of the state, however noted that his administration would not build Dubai, but would encourage the people of the state to come home and build Dubai in their state.

He stressed that nothing could thrive in an environment devoid of peace and security.

“I will create a conducive atmosphere in Anambra State so that people can return home to invest. I am not going to build Dubai but my administration will encourage Ndi Anambra to come home and build Dubai because there would be security for their investments,” he said.

The governorship hopeful who is an Estate Valuer and a lawyer further underscored the need for APGA to produce candidate from Nnewi since the governorship has been zoned to Anambra South senatorial zone.

He added, “It is only fair and just that Nnewi community should produce the next Anambra State governor, at every election time, politicians in APGA normally put on clothes adorned with Chief Chukwuemeka Ojukwu’s images, the governorship ticket of APGA should be zoned to Nnewi as a mark of respect for Ikemba Gburugburu.

“Besides Ihiala and Aguata Local Government Areas have produced governors at different times.”

The governorship aspirant, cosmopolitan Knight urged the delegates in the June 23rd APGA primary to vote based on conscience for a person who had the capacity to mix with all people irrespective of status and as well deliver quality governance to the State.
