2015 governorship race: Amanze promises to industrialise Imo


ABUJA – Dr Charles Amanze, a former Chairman, Governing Council of the University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital (UNTH) Nsukka, on Friday picked the PDP’s nomination form to contest the governorship race in Imo State.

He promised to ensure the industrialisation of the state if elected as governor in 2015.

He said this in Abuja after obtaining the form at the National Secretariat of the party.

Amanze described Imo as a failed state, adding that he would change its fortune.

The aspirant said that Imo State was in dire need of a re-direction, adding that he possessed the credentials to make it the number one state in terms of industrialisation.

He also promised to ensure job creation, infrastructural development, quality education and improvement in the state`s health facilities and its security.

While admitting that the race for the PDP ticket would be keen, Amanze urged his co-contestants to play by the rules and avoid violence.

“Power belongs to God. I will not fight over it. I don’t want violence, bitterness or rancour, ” he said.

He promised not to harbour any ill feelings against any aspirant, stressing that electoral contest was not a do or die affair.

Mr John Alkali, another governorship aspirant from Plateau State, also picked the forms.

He promised to address issues militating against the peaceful co-existence of the people of the state if he was elected in 2015.

Alkali, however, described as “misnomer and an irony”, the spate of violence in the state.

The aspirant promised to mobilise human and material resources in the state to ensure its development in an atmosphere of peace and unity.

He said his vision was to build a stable and prosperous Plateau, adding that his development concept would be people centred, while carrying along stakeholders.

The aspirant added that he would give priority to agriculture, health, industrialisation, education and the security of the state.

He, however, said the southern senatorial zone of the state deserved the governorship position in 2015.

He expressed optimism that the current state governor was not opposed to his ambition.

The PDP governorship primaries is slated for Nov. 29, ahead of the governorship election in 2015. (NAN)
