Anambra 2021: APC Cancels Campaign Flag-off In Honour Of Victims Of Recent Wave Of Terror!

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has shelved Saturday’s (today)  flag-off of its campaigns ahead of the November 6 Governorship election in Anambra State in honour victims of various attacks in the State.

Senator Andy Uba, the standard bearer of the Party made the disclosure in a statement.

Senator Uba said the decision was predicated on the premium the Party places on human lives and empathy it has for victims who were killed in the State recently.

His words:”
Like every other well-meaning member of the public, I have followed with much sadness and grief, the recent, unfortunate and mindless state of violence and insecurity in Anambra state. I have also watched with disdain, obvious breakdown of institutional capacity and inability of the APGA-led State Government to address security challenges and prevent the State from further descent into anarchy and chaos.”

“My sincere condolences to all who have lost loved ones in the ongoing politically motivated killings in Anambra state. To Ndi Anambra who are living in fear of their lives and properties as a result of the ongoing mayhem, I bring you a message of hope; hope in God under whose divine protection as Christians we go about our daily activities; hope in our collective capacity and republican nature to resist all forms of evil, even when perpetrated under the watch of highest civil authority in our dear State; and finally, our collective hope on the capacity of our heroes past (our ancestors) to guide and intercede for us before God.”

“I, therefore, charge you to go about your normal lawful businesses while keeping vigilance and taking necessary precaution to ensure your lives and properties are not put in harm’s way.”

“As a mark of respect and honour for all those who have lost their lives I, in consultation with the leadership of our great party and campaign council, have decided to cancel the campaign flag-off rally scheduled for Saturday, 2nd October, 2021 in Onitsha.”

“Umunne M Ndi Anambra, you will all agree with me that our culture and tradition hold lives sacred. It follows therefore that the safety and preservation of lives of our people MUST all times take precedence over any political interest, activities and/or associations.”

“I, Senator Andy Emmanuel Uba will be the very last person to sacrifice or play politics with the lives of our people. Neither will I allow anybody to do so under my watch. I will ensure, moving forward, that I put everything lawfully at my disposal to ensure these politically-motivated killings are brought to an end to enable the good people of Anambra go about their lawful businesses without fear of any sort.”

Senator Uba.

Recall that Anambra State has been enmeshed in a spate of violence in recent times, culminating in the destruction of lives and property.
The gruesome murder of Dr. Chike Akunyili, widower of late Dora Akunyili, former Minister of Information and Communications had drawn wide condemnations across Nigeria and beyond.
