Why I Empowered Anambra State APC – Andy Uba
By Itazi Joseph
The Senator representing Anambra South in the 8th Senate, Dr. Emmanuel Andy Uba has given a glowing account of why he decided to extend an arm of kindness to the State chapter of the All Progressive Congress (APC).
The Anambra State guber hopeful disclosed that he was appalled by the dilapidated state of infrastructure and non-existence of facilities available to the party Executives in his State to carry out their day-to-day activities during his visit.
In lieu of this, the lawmaker decided to take a holistic look at ways of helping the party overcome their numerous challenges in order to be of good service to the people, their community and contribute meaningfully to support party activities at the national level.
“I visited the State headquarters of our party and I was appalled by the dearth of facilities and operational materials for proper functionality befitting of a national ruling party. Upon the formal declaration of my intent to join the APC, I was presented with a list of some of the needs and challenges bothering the party, and I resolved that we must address one or two of them to lift the face and smoothen the operation of the party in the state. So when I went back to Abuja, I met with some of my friends to discuss some of these problems and we concluded that it will be useful to assist the party with at least one operational vehicle for each local government, including the zonal heads and this is the reason we are gathered here today”. Andy Uba said.
Without further ado, the distinguished Senator matched his words with action by presenting the State Chairmen with keys to more than 21 branded Siena buses. The lawmaker reiterated further that as the party advances towards the elections, he will continue to do his best to ensure that other demands are met to assail the deserved leadership position come November 18th gubernatorial elections.
The empowerment program which took place at Community Secondary School field in Uga on Thursday, the 1st of June 2017, afforded the party Executives and Chairmen an opportunity to come together in unity for the purpose of further advancing the party’s cause to impact and take Anambra State out of its current quagmire plaguing the people as a result of bad and non-inclusive government.
The State Chairman of the party, Barr. Emeka Ibe while expressing his gratitude to the distinguished Senator for his foresight and dedication to the State development, lauded his kind gesture and assured him of the proper utilization of the vehicles by the party, and stated that indeed a new dawn has come for the state chapter of the party.
The lawmaker thanked the party Executives and Excos, and the cheering supporters for witnessing the beginning of a new dawn in the All Progressive Congress, Anambra State.
He admonished the crowd who thronged in from all walks of life to brace up for the challenges that lies ahead in the actualization of the people’s mandate to liberate them from poverty, hopelessness and oppression.
