Obi, Obiano’s failure responsible for infrastructure decay in Anambra – Madu

Ahead of the Anambra state governorship election slated for November 6, 2021, an aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Hon. Dozie Madu has lamented that the failure of the former governor Peter Obi and the incumbent governor Willie Obiano responsible for the decay in infrastructure in the state. 

Madu however said he remain the candidate to beat in the forthcoming governorship primary of the APC because of his blueprint on how to develop the state.

Madu who picked his Expression of Interest form Monday at the headquarters of the APC in Abuja said as a seasoned politician, he knows what to do to uplift the lives of the people of Anambra state.

He also said he is a grassroots politician loved by the people even as he boasted of his strength contrary to insinuations that the presidency is behind him.

“All the aspirants in the state are qualified, but I am more qualified, the party has done well in my local government than elsewhere in the state. For instance, the APC in 2018 had 3415 votes and in 2019 Presidential election the party got 6901 votes. The party has done absolutely great and many of those aspirants contesting against me can’t even deliver their ward.

“I’ve been around politically, I was the National Chairman of Congress for Democratic Change (CDC), I was National Chairman of Independent Democrats, I was presidential candidate in the 2019 presidential election. Presently I am a member of the governing Council of the African Union Development Agency under Presidency.”

The business man turned politician said he intends to do differently from the previous administrations, saying his main attention will be in the area of infrastructural development.

“If you visit my state you will discover that there is lack of infrastructure, I don’t want  to  go into talking of unemployment because when you have infrastructure, that will create employment because people will be needed to man those infrastructure, that is the first thing I want to do.

“I want to tell you that most people that come out with seven agenda, 8 agenda, don’t do well when they become governor. I’m not here to talk but when I come back to submit my manifesto my people will follow me and will vote for me massively.”
