Anambra’s development tied to security, says AAC candidate

THE candidate of the African Action Congress in the Anambra State Governorship election, scheduled to hold on Saturday, Dr. Chidozie Nwankwo, has expressed confidence that he would win the November 6 poll.

He hinged his confidence on what he described as his template for resolving the security challenges in the state.

Nwankwo spoke during a press conference held via zoom, on Wednesday.

The candidate said unlike his opponents, he was not given to making empty promises to gain cheap political points because he has what it takes to redeem the state.

He promised to bring to bear his over 40 years of integrity in business and job creation to bear in running the state if elected.

Nwankwo who is Chairman/Chief Executive Officer of Wichtech Groups, wondered “If I have made huge contributions in building home-grown economy as a private businessman, why can’t I do much better in ensuring good governance as a governor?

“Security is a major challenge facing Anambra State and indeed the entire South East region but I can assure you that the problem is not insurmountable.

“If Anambra people elect me on November 6, I assure you I will be able to secure the state. First of all, I will engage in a lot of consultations of all major stakeholders in the state.

“It is obvious that most of the violence in Anambra that you see is being perpetrated by outsiders and some bad politicians.

“I will ensure tight security, development in agriculture, a robust road construction in cities and rural areas, massive development in education, enhanced development in healthcare plus sports development among others.”

The candidate also promised to hold Local Government Council elections within months of being sworn in.
