The All Progressive Congress(APC) deputy governorship candidate, Mr Dozie Ikedife Jnr has described as deceitful the campaign strategy adopted by the All Progressives Grand Aliance (APGA), which included the use of the name of the late Igbo leader, Dim Chukwuemeka Ojukwu for its campaign.
Dozie Ikedife jnr, who spoke with journalists in Nnewi, said that over 90 percent of Governor Willie Obiano’s achievements for almost four years now were only on billboards, pages of newspapers and electronic media with nothing concrete to show for them.
He called on Anambra electorate to avoid sentiment in their voting behaviour during the election; urging them to ensure that the current APGA government in the state was changed as it was a disaster.
“Anambra people have demystified the antics of the APGA government’s propaganda. They should allow late Ikemba’s soul to rest in peace.”
He said that billboards dotted all areas of the state with the picture of late Odumegwu Ojukwu and the inscriptions this is our own, which he described as the biggest deceit of the season.
He queried how a party which presence could not be felt beyond the River Niger or other boundaries of Anambra should be ideal for the Igbo or claimed to be for the interest of the Anambra people and Ndigbo, generally.
He maintained that Ndigbo should reconnect to the center for maximum benefits of democracy, adding that it was the reason the people were still crying of marginalization when the easy thing to do would have been to connect to the party at the centre.
Ikedife jnr dismissed the achievement of prompt payment of workers’ salaries and pension by Chief Obiano as a hoax, saying that Obiano has not told Anambra people what he was doing with billions of naira accruing to the state as federal allocations and those of the 21 local government councils of the State.
