Ozigbo flags off 21 LGA tour in Orumba North


Valentine Ozigbo, the flag-bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2021 Anambra governorship election, has launched a tour of all the 21 local governments in the state.

The local government tour, which began with a rally held at Government Field, Ajalli, in Orumba North LGA, aims to deepen the conversation on the fu­ture of Anambra State.

In a show of acceptance, the people of Orumba North came out in their thousands to witness the event, which marked the flag off of the PDP campaign activities at the local government areas.

In his welcome address, the Vice Chairman of the PDP in Anambra South Sen­atorial Zone, Chief Emma Ebene, thanked the people of Orumba North for com­ing out in their numbers. He appreciated them for their show of support, solidarity and most importantly, their strong belief in the party’s candidate, Valentine Ozig­bo.

Chief Ebene reiterated that PDP is now best posi­tioned to win the governor­ship election than ever and called on Ndi Anambra state to look beyond sentiments and vote for a candidate who ticks all the boxes of a mod­ern hands-on governor.

“On behalf of the entire people of Orumba North, I welcome you to our local government today. Our great party in Anambra state started here in Orum­ba, and Valentine Ozigbo has kicked off his tour here,” Chief Emma Ebene said.

“We are out here in our numbers to show that this time around, our choice is clear. Valentine Ozigbo is the choice of Orumba North, and there is no doubt about that.

“The people of Orumba have suffered enough ne­glect from the government of the day, and we have resolved to make a better choice this time around,” he concluded.

In his address, the im­mediate past Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi, took time to appreci­ate the people of Orumba for their massive support and turn out.

Obi, who was PDP’s Vice-Presidential candidate in the 2019 general election, promised that voting for Mr Ozigbo as the next governor would guarantee a massive turnaround in the people’s standard of living.

“Ndi Orumba, it gladdens my heart to be in your midst today to introduce to you the next governor of Anambra state. The man who will con­tinue from where I stopped and will do more than I did,” Obi said.

“Valentine Ozigbo is a son of the soil, a bonafide indigene of the Old Aguata Union. I am very confident that he will work for the in­terest of all of us when he becomes a governor.
