From Aloysius Attah, Onitsha
An aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) , Senator Andy Uba has decried the lack of sufficient infrastructure and the deplorable condition of roads in Oromaetiti and other parts of Anambra West Local Government Area of the state.
Uba who toured the seven local government areas of the Anambra North Senatorial zone promised to transform Anambra State to a land where everything good will excel and also to turn around the fortunes of the party in if elected governor.
The tour which kicked off at Anambra West Local Government Area, saw Uba meeting with supporters from the seven local governments that make up the north senatorial district of the state, namely Anambra West, Anambra East, Oyi, Ayamelum ,Onitsha North, Onitsha South and Ogbaru.
He said he decided to reach out to the grassroots in order to convince them on the need to put forward their best material as the date for the APC primaries draws near.
He said, he did not intend to leave any stone unturned, thus he was ready to travel the entire state to appraise the prevailing situations in the areas which will form the core of his manifesto.
He said he will turn the Anam area of Anambra West, which is an agrarian community into an agricultural city, integrating numerous value chains into the agricultural potentials of the area. This he said would harness the agricultural abundance by building collectives with modern day facilities which will be community run employing at least 2000 youths per community who will be paid by the state government.
He urged party delegates to be peaceful and ignore negative reports spun about his person by certain candidates, describing them as being jittery of his chances.
