Personality, Not Party’ll Count in Anambra 2017 Guber, Says Ezeemo, Aspirant

The leader of the Progressive Peoples Alliance(PPA) in Anambra State and former governorship candidate of the party in 2013 election, Chief Godwin Ezeemo said those scrambling to join leading political parties to vie for the governorship election of next year would be shamed.
Ezeemo in an interview with WWW.ELEKENEWS.COM in Umunze yesterday, during the occasion of the presentation of a modern toilet built and donated to the parishioners of St Joseph Catholic Church, Umunze said his party, PPA is a strong enough platform to produce the governor of the state next year.

He said, “Anambra people are now very politically aware. You cannot come here and deceive the people any longer for the simple reason that you belong to a so called mega party. The people have been adequately sensitized, and they will vote for the right person and not party.”
Ezeemo while addressing the people urged them to be at alert and not be deceived by those who will bring loads of money to sway their support, but urged them to take the money but vote for the right candidate next year.
He assured them that when he becomes the governor of the state, he will make qualitative education free for all children in the state, and assured of his capability to make the greater population of the people of the state happy.
On why he has remained put in the PPA, despite that other politicians have been switching platforms, looking for better alternative, Ezeemo who is a known businessman in the state said the ideologies of the party remain the best, while berating those changing parties as unstable politicians who will grab power at all cost for selfish interest.
Speaking on the modern toilet built and donated to the church, he said, “I was here last year for the harvest and bazaar of this church, and at some point, I had need to use their toilet but I was told they did not have one.
“So, I started wondering to myself why a church as big as this one will not have a toilet facility. Do the parishioners have to go to the bush to ease themselves when they have need for it? So, I promised them this facility, and today I am delivering it to them,” He said.
Though he is an Anglican by faith, Obiano believes that the church is one, and that the essence of worshiping as a Christian is to achieve the same aim.
The parish priest of St Joseph Catholic Church, Rev Fr Basil Ezekeli who spoke on behalf of the parish thanked Ezeemo for the gesture, while observing that his gesture was done, even when he is neither from the area, not the denomination.
