The candidate of the United Progressive Party, UPP, Chief Osita Chidoka, has boasted that he would win the forthcoming governorship election in Anambra State.
Chidoka told DAILY POST’S correspondent at his campaign office in Awka on Tuesday that he was sure of victory at the polls, adding that he has reached voters in all areas in the state and was sure of those that would vote for him.
The candidate insisted that he remained the man for the Anambra governorship seat, and that he was confident of victory in the election, having introduced new technological and scientific methods to the election.
His words, “We have adopted a technological and scientific method to reach voters. We have 26,000 workers who are canvassing for votes for us in all the wards in the state. At our call centre in Obosi, we have 100 people who are making calls to all the voters in the state, and you need to see them at work, calling and convincing voters to vote for us.
“Our targets are those who have collected their voters’ cards, we have no business with those who did not register with INEC, or those who did and did not collect their PVCs.
“I can tell you sitting down here how many votes we will get in most areas in the state.
“We know areas where we have called them and they gave us their words, places were they said no to us and those who are undecided. We are winning the election. It is not about the number of people mobilised to rallies,” he said.
Speaking further, Chidoka said he was running a data-driven campaign that has analyzed and come up with the number of people that had the PVCs in various areas and are concentrating on wooing them, without expending energies unnecessarily.
He also unveiled his manifesto, which he said outlines his vision, plans and underpinning for the state, which was attached with workplans and timeline for achieving them.
Chidoka added that the Anambra election would spring surprises as the people of the state were politically aware, and would vote in what would be a referendum that would decide the fate of the state and the entire south east.
