Anambra Elections- In what can be described as historic election, the people of Anambra State will today decide their next governor among the 37 candidates contesting on the platforms of their respective political parties. The incumbent State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano, is contesting on the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) while President Muhammadu Buhari, whose party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) is one of the leading contenders has assured the good people of the state of a free and fair poll. The President reiterated this development at the grand finale of the APC campaign in Awka. Expectedly, the contest will be a straight battle between Governor Obiano of APGA, Mr Oseloka Obaze of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Dr. Tony Nwoye of All Progressives Congress (APC), seen as the top three contenders to the throne. The three contenders are closely followed by Chief Osita Chidoka of United Progressive Party (UPP), Lolo Oby Kate Okafor of Advanced Congress of Democrats (ACD) and Mr Godwin Ezeemo of Peoples Progressive Alliance (PPA). Each of these candidates have campaigned vigorously to clinch victory during today’s election. Incumbent Governor Willie Obiano, the APGA flag-bearer has enormous advantages to win this election. Obiano, as an incumbent governor, has executed projects that have directly impacted on the various segments of people of the state which will earn him their support or sympathy. For Nwoye, the candidate of the APC, his background as a Students’ Union activist and grassroots politician who has been on the ground since at least 2003 are his major strength Obaze, former Secretary to the Anambra State Government under Peter Obi and for some time with Obiano and a former diplomat, is another strong contender for the Agu Awka Government House. Chidoka, former Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), and ex-Minister of Aviation is another strong contender for the race. Chidoka is banking on the UPP and he is said to have some sympathy from the young elements. Lolo Oby Kate Okafor, the candidate of the ACD, has reportedly claimed that the males have failed the people hence it was time for a woman to rule the state while she assured that she would not disappoint if given the mandate by the people of the state. Ezeemo of the PPA is another candidate in this election. Many people in the state see Ezeemo as a gentle man and philanthropist, who should be given opportunity to rule the state. Meanwhile, the Inspector- General of Police, Mr Ibrahim Idris, has assured voters of adequate security and protection at the poll and urged the people to ignore the threat of members of banned Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on the grounds that about 26,000 policemen, 15 gunboats and 303 patrol vehicles have been deployed for the governorship poll. The IGP also assured that the Force will not do anything to truncate the election process while Governor Obiano’s Aide-de-Camp has been restored as against previous media report of withdrawal of his full security compliments. Aside this, the Police boss has said his officers are on top of the game to provide adequate security.
