The lawmaker representing Aguata federal constituency at the national assembly and frontline contender in the November 6 governorship election in Anambra state, Hon. Chukwuma Umeoji has declared that he is not threatened by the likes of Professor Chukwuma Charles Soludo and a host of other aspirants jostling for the ticket of the All Progressives Grand Alliance ( APGA ) .
Umeoji maintained that neither the former CBN governor nor any other aspirant will decide or determine who eventually clinched the party’s ticket except delegates who he said will emerge through an electoral college.
The federal legislator who stated this at the state assembly complex shortly after his in-camera session with state lawmakers, noted that he was not afraid of any aspirant on the platform of APGA or any other political party in the state but was propelled by his burning desire to consolidate as well as continue from the landmarks of Governor Willie Obiano.
He said he was the most qualified and most experienced amongst all the aspirants having served as one-time Aguata local government chairman and in other veritable capacities coupled with being a two-time member of the Federal House of Representatives.
Umeoji who had also gone to the APGA headquarters in Awka to officially declare his avowed intention to join the governorship race on the platform of APGA, said if the party provided a level playing field for all the aspirants as well as adhere strictly to the constitutional provisions of the party, he would win the primary election and also win the governorship election.
He said Governor Willie Obiano has done tremendously well especially in the realm of security, stressing that if elected next governor, he would leverage on the foundations created by the governor and further strengthen security architecture in Anambra State.
