About one year to the Governorship election in Anambra state, the political gladiators have started jostling to clinch the top job, as the Senator representing Anambra Central Senatorial District, Uche Ekwunife, has said the only thing that can stop her from winning the Governorship election in 2021 is her chances to secure the ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Recall that Anambra State governorship election is scheduled to hold in November 2021, according to the timetable of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Addressing the PDP ward chairmen in Awka, the Anambra state capital, Senator Ekwunife said she had the capacity to defeat the candidates of all the political parties in the race.
She said, “Let us do what will take us to the government house and I’m presenting myself to seek the Number One position in the state and I will take PDP to the Agu Awka Government House because I know that I have the capacity and capability to win election for PDP.
“Once I have your ticket, I have won the election for you. If you want government house , Iyom( Ekwunife) will give you government house and if I have the PDP ticket, let all the political parties in Anambra state present one candidate, I will defeat all of them. I don’t think I have any challenge winning election.”
