“They are to go and mobilize others and the people of the state to work towards delivering any governorship candidate from the Anambra South zone. If the governor has a preference,for equity, farness and justice, that candidate must come from Anambra South zone. APGA had already zoned the position of governor to Anambra South. We will work towards seeing that any popular candidate from the zone gets the slot”, Emenike stressed..

“We don’t have anybody in mind. Our mission is to make sure that the next governor of Anambra State comes from Anambra South Zone.It doesn’t matter which part of Anambra South the candidate comes from Nnewi, Aguat,, Ekwulobia, Ihiala or any other place. What matters is that the person must be credible, trustworthy, accessible and tested”, Adigwe said.
