âThe development has not been seen or felt by the people of Anambra,â he said.
He advised the APGA to face its governance business and stop calling APC’s names.
âWe urge APGA to focus on their campaign and leave APC alone.
âHarassing members of the National Assembly who left the APGA for the APC is a distraction for the party; Providing solutions to internal APGA problems should be paramount to its leadership, ” said Ejidike.

He urged more members of the House of Assembly to leave the APGA and join the ruling national party to bring the South East into national politics.

Obi said the APGA was focusing and consolidating their plans to secure a big win on November 6 and didn’t have time to joke with the APC.

Adinuba said that for registration purposes, the PGAA government invited the EFCC to review its accounts in March 2018 and gave it a good health check after the exercise.
âThe APGA government is the only one that has ever invited the EFCC to examine its accounts.
He added that the state had the lowest unemployment rate in Nigeria at 13.1 percent compared to 27.1 percent nationally.
âEconomists around the world regard the employment rate as the most important indicator of any government’s performance,â Adinuba said.
He added that the National Bureau of Statistics also declared Anambra’s economy to be the best managed in Nigeria.
He said that the government headed by Governor Obiano was the only one in Nigeria to have built an international airport in 15 months and also an international convention center, the best in Africa with a capacity of 12,000 people.
He said that over the next month Anambra will deliver the newest fully-built international stadium without borrowing money from any bank.
Adinuba stressed that the APGA government led by Governor Obiano is not afraid of any checks on its financial records.
He advised APC to arm itself with verifiable facts at all times before going to press.
Adinuba also urged the APC to clean up the image of its gubernatorial flag bearer, Senator Andy Uba, and compare it with that of the APGA’s “world-class” candidate in the person of professor Charles Soludo.
