APGA governorship candidate dumps party’s presidential candidate, drums support for Peter Obi

The gubernatorial candidate of All Progressives Grand Alliance in Enugu, Chief Frank Nweke Jr. has described Peter Obi of Labour Party as the best among all the three leading presidential candidates for the 25 February election.

Nweke whose party, APGA also has a presidential candidate said Obi is the best because he has character, capacity and integrity.

He therefore urged the people of Enugu to vote for Obi in the presidential election, but to vote for APGA to vote for Obi on Feb. 25 and cast other votes for APGA candidates.

Nweke who spoke while addressing the 48th Annual Synod of the Methodist Church of Nigeria in Enugu on Friday added that the church had a major role to play in the enthronement of good leadership.
He therefore pledged to partner with the church in improving education and reinventing the society if elected in March 11.

He promised to hand schools back to missions because schools were better managed by churches, especially primary schools, the foundation of education.

On acute water scarcity in the state, the governorship candidate said he would restore water supply, ensure proper waste disposal and address multiple taxes within 12 months of his administration.

He appealed to the church to vote for APGA in the elections in the state for better living of the people and promised that he would not disappoint residents.

Responding, the Methodist Archbishop of Enugu, Most Rev. Christopher Edeh, thanked Nweke for identifying with the church and prayed God to help him achieve his political ambition.

The bishop said that the church would participate actively in the enthronement of good leaders in the country by coming out en masse to vote.

Highlight of the event was the presentation of the “award of Ambassador of Christ” on Chief Nweke. (NAN)
