Buhari Backs Okwuosa In Anambra Gubernatorial Election

Reports reaching us suggest President Muhammadu Buhari has named Hon Azuka Okwuosa as his candidate and APC flagbearer for the Anambra gubernatorial elections. Recall that the Anambra gubernatorial elections set for November 6, 2021. Among the strongest candidates are Prof. Charles Soludo, the former Central Bank of Nigeria Governor, Dr Godwin Maduka, Mrs Genevieve Ekwochi, Engr Chris Azubogu, among others.

According to a reliable source within the presidential cabinet, the attention of the President was drawn to the former local government chairman, Okwuosa, by his giant strides all through his internal campaigns. His endorsement for Okwuosa was founded on his proven averseness to corrupt governance which is evidenced by Okwuosa's exemplary track record within the political space.

The source, who craved anonymity, added that the president urged party members to ensure that the primary elections on Saturday, June 26 are held in a peaceful manner and encouraged members of the party to close ranks behind Hon Azuka Okwuosa and provide him with all the support required to push him into the governorship office in November.

The strong backing from the president is the deciding factor in who would bear the flag of the All Progressives Congress in the Anambra general elections.
