A top aspirant for Enugu Governorship seat pn the platform of APGA, Jeff Nnamani has told the The People of Nkanu West Local Government Area to boldly show their hunger for a more progressive government in the area by voting massively for the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) Candidates in the coming Local Government election scheduled for Wednesday February 23rd across the state.
This charge was contained in a goodwill message delivered by Prince Dr. Jeff Nnamani at a meeting of Nkanu West Political Stakeholders which held in Agbani ward on Friday.
Present at the well-attended meeting were community, religious, age grade and political leaders; women and other socio-cultural groups; APGA Chairmanship and Councillorship candidates in the coming Local Government election as well as other notable personalities from all the wards of Nkanu West Local Government Area.
Dr. Jeff Nnamani called on residents to come out confidently on Wednesday to exercise their franchise, by not only voting, but protecting their votes, to ensure that they are not short-changed.
He advised them not to be afraid or intimidated to identify with APGA.
“You must be determined to have your say, because it is only with your vote that your voice can be heard. This is the honorable and courageous thing to do to bring about real progress and happiness. Let your votes speak out loudly that it’s no longer going to be business as usual; it’s now a new dawn”, he stated.
Dr. Jeff further said as a strong believer in Democracy, he is participating in the coming LG election to demonstrate the fact that Democracy is really a practical thing, not theoretical.
He commended APGA for choosing to participate in the elections, adding that people should not shun or boycott the election in the belief that it will be compromised in favour of the ruling party.
He described the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) as the only party the people can truly trust to provide responsible and accountable style of government which the people yearn for but has been lacking so far.
“Today, the only credible political party around is APGA. Your yearning for development-oriented style of governance at all levels in the state can only be realized if you choose to be counted by using your votes to elect credible representatives from the APGA party that is spiritually and emotionally connected to the Ndi Igbo’s dream of socio-economic freedom, Nkea bu Nke anyi”, he stated.
In his welcome speech, the meeting host and Agbani ward chairman (APGA), Chief Okafor Ifeanyi Prosper, welcomed Dr. Jeff Nnamani who he described as a Breadth of Fresh Air (Ikuku oma) that touches and benefits everyone. He noted that the unveiling of Dr. Jeff Nnamani as an APGA member just last week has electrified the political scene and changed the political equation of 2023 succession in Enugu State.
He averred that, “Our people know the party they want. Agbani is APGA, Nkanu West is APGA and by the grace of God, the whole of Enugu State is set to shake off the forces that have kept us down for so long and to choose a brighter tomorrow under an APGA government piloting the affairs of our great state. All we need is for Enugu State Government to ensure a level playing field to enable the Enugu State Independent Electoral Commission not to compromise the Wednesday 23rd February 2022 LG Election”
