Dr. Obiora Okonkwo, the former governorship aspirant under the People Democratic Party (PDP), in the forthcoming November 6th 2021 guber election in Anambra State, has revealed his intention to contest the election on the platform of another political party following his loss of the ticket in PDP during the party’s primary.

He said he is capable of actualise his governorship dream in another political party.

The hint was revealed by a pressure group, the Anambra Rescue Committee (ARC), which observed that Anambra people are desirous of having Okonkwo as the next governor of the state and are therefore urging him to enter the race immediately without delayed.

Leader of the group, Mr. Azubuike Anazor, who disclosed this to Journalists in Onitsha, on Tuesday, July 27, observed that the ongoing political developments in the state had shown that the November election would, from all indications, produce a governor that might not be generally acceptable to the people, which is why someone like Okonkwo is needed to be in the contest.

Anazor said, “The recent gubernatorial primaries of the major political parties in the state – PDP, APGA and APC — have resulted in the imposition of candidates and manipulation of the electoral process by vested interests actuated, not by altruistic motives and intentions, but by the egregious desire to foist on our dear state a leadership that will serve interests not in tune with the wishes of our people for good governance.”
