By PAUL UWADIMA, Abuja –
The United Progressive Party (UPP) has commended people of Anambra State for their wise decision in embracing its candidate, Chief Osita Chidoka as the new face of governance for the state.
The party in a statement signed by the national publicity secretary, Chief Ogbuehi Dike expressed its appreciation of the fact that ndi-Anambra recognize Chief Chidoka’s incomparable vision and templates to reposition the state, revamp ailing sectors and revive “our God-given wealth-creating potentials for which we are known as a people.”
It noted that among all other contenders in the race, Chief Chidoka ranks highest in public acceptance, character and experience in public service, while his agenda on critical sectors including education, health, economy, job creation, security, urban renewal among others remain operably unparalleled.
The statement reads in part, “Our candidate is not only known for his knack for solving difficult problems and his excellent performance at the highest levels of public service, but also for his presence of mind to deliver on mandates. His avowed determination to return the state to the people by granting all citizens equal access to available opportunities and resources stands him as against the current oligarchic system stands him out in this race.
“Fortunately, Chief Chidoka is in the pan-Igbo United Progressive Party (UPP); an egalitarian party that promotes the Igbo quest for self-determination, equity and justice in Nigerian and which has the logo of isi-agu, the undying tiger head symbol of the collective consciousness of the Igbos as a courageous people.
