Political debates in Nigeria are hardly an excellent reading of prevailing political dynamics let alone the realities on the ground – this is after all, the country whose current President famously refused to participate in three debates – but the 2017 Anambra governorship debate organised on 12 November by civil society groups, Enough is Enough Nigeria and the National Democratic Institute, moderated by Channels Television’s Seun Okinbaloye and pitting five jousting, mostly well informed candidates engaging in a civil discussion of the relevant issues of the state may be a refreshing indicator of an emerging trend.

The contestants in what is shaping up to be the most closely followed state vote before the high election season of 2018-2019 featured the incumbent governor and candidate for the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Willie Obiano, businessman and self styled industrialist Godwin Ezeemo of the Peoples Progressive Alliance, former aviation minister Osita Chidoka of the United Peoples Party, federal lawmaker and All Progressives Congress candidate Tony Nwoye and technocrat and Peoples Democratic Party candidate, Oseloka Obaze. They were grilled by the veteran Okinbaloye on a limited range of issues varying from governance, security and social development to the economy.

In the opening segment, the candidates spoke about the distinctive elements of their platforms. Obaze, in between proving his local bona fide by handily pointing out that he had “lived in Anambra for years,” declared that his administration will end multiple taxation, make education 26 percent of the state’s annual budget and champion human development anchored on education, welfare, social security, protecting life and property and guaranteeing the freedom of movement; Nwoye promised to block leakages in government spending while frittering away a healthy chunk of his allotted 120 seconds blasting the incumbent of appointing over 700 advisers; Ezeemo unveiled his intentions to ensure full employment in an environment where “70 percent of our graduates are unemployable” and drive growth in agribusiness while ensuring environmental sustainability; Obiano said he would use a renewed mandate to make his state a first choice business environment and drive social mobility after touting his credentials on improving security, employee welfare and his ‘181 projects in 181 communities’ mantra; and Chidoka outlined his four steps to mapping out a shared vision of public service and sustainability which would be attained by “applying knowledge, hard work and morality.” It was a lively opening to what would be an engaging discourse.


 
The moderator took particular interest in dwelling on the underlying politics fuelling the election. Thus, Nwoye had to answer questions about a very public and ugly spat between his political godfather Andy Uba and current Labour Minister and one-time governor, Chris Ngige. He decried the entire situation as“a propaganda of the APGA administration of Chris Ngige” although he admitted that he left the PDP “because of a lack of inclusivity and governance.” Chidoka strongly countered the idea that he salivated for the Governor’s Lodge at Awka when tackled on his political party shopping tendencies, saying that “the issue is not what platform on which I am running. The issue is what I have to offer.” He eventually declared that the UPP “approximates [his] thoughts on politics at the moment.” I fundamentally believe in the renegotiation of the Nigerian state.” Obiano, in repsonse to questions about his relationship with his immediate predecessor, Peter Obi, appealed tot he moderator to allow him focus on his election programme for the state. Further pressed on the matter, he simply said “I am not against Peter Obi. He is not a candidate in this election.” Obaze leveraged on his work experience as an international civil servant, as well as positions in the last Anambra administrations, but explained his deep dive into the world of politics as a call to arms “because the government and the process has been hijacked.” Ezeemo could only volunteer his political goals in general terms, saying that “Anambra is in trouble, we are not in trouble. I am here to serve the black man.”
