As Agbasimelo commissions office at Otolo Nnewi Ward 1
Ndiakwu, a densely populated village in Otolo axis of Nnewi was agog at the weekend just as the the candidate of Labour Party (LP) for the 2021 governorship election in Anambra State, Mr Obiora Agbasimelo and his entourage stormed the village to commission the new office of the LP in Otolo Nnewi Ward 1 and to welcome over 1000 new members of the LP who joined from other political parties
Our correspondent gathered that the office was donated by a Chieftain of the party in the Ward Prince Austin Onyekaba.
Addressing the crowded audience, Agbasimelo who conspicuously expressed happiness at the audience admitted that the new entrants have heightened his chances of winning the November 6 governorship election noting that with such gathering in other Wards across the State LP is sure of coasting home to victory on November 6.
While appreciating the office donor, Prince Onyekaba for his contribution for the progress of the party, the LP governorship hopeful also thanked the new convertts for deeming it right enough to identify with his aspiration to become the next governor of Anambra State.
The youthful banker turned politician told the gathering that he will come back unviel his plans and provide all needed campaign materials when he kicks off campaign next month.
In response, the new entrants assured Agbasimelo of their preparedness to spread the good news about LP and his candidacy adding that they are capable enough to deliver Otolo Ward 1 to the party come November 6.
Mr Vincent Olisa who joined LP from Young Progressives Party (YPP) and who spoke on behalf of the new converts explained in elaborate terms that they were inspired to join LP because the party being the most peaceful in the State with a youthful candidate has a very bright future.
Earlier in his address, Prince Onyekaba also known as Otumba stated that the people of Otolo Ward 1 have early enough decided to identify with the bandwagon of the LP to avoid lagging behind in the scheme of things in Anambra State.
He argued that LP is the ideal for Ndi Anambra as far the 2021 poll is concerned and described other political parties mostly the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) the All Progressive Congress (APC) and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) as “sinikng ships” that have to be abandoned by the well meaning people of Anambra State.
