Lagos –  Mr Ikechukwu Anyene, former President of Nigeria Union, South Africa, says Anambra needs a change in leadership to take the state to greater heights.

He spoke against the backdrop of the governorship election in Anambra which the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has fixed Nov. 18.

Anyene told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on telephone from Pretoria, South Africa on Friday that the people of the state had the right to choose a leader that would satisfy their yearnings.

He said that the people should come out on the Election Day and make the choice of candidate to steer the state.

Anyene said that from analysis, Mr Oseloka Obazee, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate had potential to move the state forward.

“As Secretary to the State Government, Obazee assisted in the building of a new Anambra State under the leadership of former governor, Mr Peter Obi.

“Given his experience as a tested administrator, he will deliver because he has the pedigree.

“The choice of Chidi Onyemelukwe, as deputy gubernatorial candidate is a good combination that will move the state forward,” Anyene said.

He urged the candidates to focus on issues and expected quality service to the people.

“The parties and their candidates should talk less on individuals or character assassination. Anambra is matured enough to have credible leaders.
