The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Anambra, has promised the people of the state it will secure the state if its candidate is elected as governor.
Chairman of the party, Basil Ejidike stated this on Wednesday, in an interview with NAN in Awka, the state capital.
A former senator representing Anambra south, Andy Uba, is the APC gubernatorial candidate for the November 6 governorship election.
Ejidike blamed the ruling All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) for its “insensitivity to the plight of the citizens”, and said if the party’s governorship candidate wins the election, APC will “deploy all its arsenal to stop insecurity in the state”.
“Security should be a primary provision by a reasonable government to its citizenry. Government now hunts down people who do not believe in its governance, instead of providing security,”
He also condemned the recent killing of a former traditional ruler of Mkpunando, Anambra east LGA, Alex Edozieuno and his driver.
He said: “Edozieuno recently joined APC and since then, as a trusted party member and grassroots person, had promised to deliver the party in his area,”
“The man was still serving the suspension order of the government and was replaced by another person. APGA knows his political worth and was afraid of his actions since he joined APC.
“Our people can talk and talk, do all sorts of things but as Igbo, we value the sanctity of life and regard human lives.
“We have never seen this type of killing in Anambra, that is why we raised alarm.”
