…doubts alleged zoning arrangement cos of Mbadinuju experience
…says, if I quit my party, I quit politics
All primary and post primary school pupils in Anambra state would enjoy free eduction from next year.
Chief George Moghalu, who is the hot favourite amongst the 14 governorship aspirants of the All Progressives Congress(APC) for the scheduled Nov 18,2017 made the assertion yesterday during a question and answer session with journalists as part of activities marking the conclusion of his first phase tour of Councils in the state.
The governorship hopeful who took out quality time touring the 21 councils of the state, used the opportunity to meet his party’s state officers, council and Ward executives for interaction ahead the coming August 5,2017 primaries, declared that with the resources and revenue Windows available to the state government, Anambra pupils ought to enjoy free education unhindered.
A visibly concerned Moghalu who is also the party’s National Auditor said that there was hope to extend the gesture to tertiary level if he believes it is very necessary and that the resources of the state can carry it.
He express confidence that he would win the nomination of APC and the election proper, and thereafter appraise the true position of the state’s accounts to enable him make more far reaching decisions concerning the free education policy.
When taken up on the alleged zoning arrangement amongst the three senatorial zones in the state in the presentation of governors, Chief Moghalu said that he sincerely and respectfully doubted any such understanding.
While accusing those latching unto such argument for their aspiration as lacking in life-enhancing programmes to take the state and her citizens to the next level, he then rhetorically asked why the former governor Dr Chinwoke Mbadinuju and his South Senatorial zone were prevented from doing two terms of eights years.
According to him, “if Dr Mbadinuju was allowed eight years, or his zone allowed eight years, I won’t come out.”
He noted that, “…if there is any zone that shouldn’t come out this time, it’s the Central, that had taken three years under Senator Chris Ngige and eight years by Mr Peter Obi.”
On what Jos reaction would be if he fails to clinch the APC ticket, whether he would consider other platforms, Moghalu interjected quickly, “any day I quit my party, I quit politics altogether.
“If I fail to win the nomination, God’s will must be done. I won’t decamp.”
Moghalu also confirmed that no law forbids any new entrant from contesting for any office under the APC.
