We May Lose Anambra Guber Polls – Tukur


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chairman, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, has said that winning the Anambra State governorship election will be a difficult task.

Tukur therefore appealed to youths in the country to relocate to Anambra to help one of their own win the election and pledged that they would be provided with adequate security during the election.

But Vice President Namadi Sambo has said there would be no room for any politician to rig the November 16, 2013 election in the state.

Tukur, who presented the PDP flags to the party’s governorship candidate, Mr. Tony Nwoye and his running mate, Dr. Amamchukwu Ezike, urged members of the party to join hands with the candidates to deliver that state to the party.

According to Tukur, who spoke in Awka when the PDP leaders stormed Anambra to campaign for Nwoye, the state gave PDP to Nigeria at the inception of the current democratic era and urged the people to return the state to the party.

He described Nwoye as an energetic youth who gave the party good leadership when he was its chairman in the state, adding with the support he enjoys from the grassroots, especially from the youths, he would certainly win the governorship election.

He promised that the federal government would do everything legal to make the election free and fair.

Sambo said at Ekwueme Square, Awka, venue of the event, that the election would be a “one man, one vote, one woman one vote, one youth one vote” and commended the choice of the candidates for the election.

Sambo said when Nwoye and Ezike are elected, President Goodluck Jonathan would work with them to succeed.

The deputy Senate president Ike Ekweremmadu, deputy speaker of the House of Representatives, Emeka Ihedioha, Gombe State governor, Alhaji Ibrahim Dankwabo, former PDP national chairman, Col. Amadu Ali (rtd), former deputy Senate president Ibrahim Mantu, Senator Ben Obi, presidential adviser on politics, Ahmed Gulak, Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, Prince Arthur Eze, PDP national Women leader, Mrs Kema Chikwe, attended the event.
