Sen. Stella Oduah (Anambra North) has urged the people of Anambra to come en masse to vote in this Saturday’s governorship election to avoid creating a vacuum of governance in the state.
“Therefore if we fail to cast our votes, if we fail to come out to vote and have a new governor, what will happen is that the Federal Government will provide an administrator and declare a state of emergency,” she warned. “That is not what we want. It means that democracy will elude us, who is governing us would not be who we voted for or who we desired.”
“This is not about which party I belong to. It is about saving our state, it is about making sure that our youths, our women, our children have a peaceful and enabling environment where good governance and policies will strive. Therefore we must make sure that we come out on the 18th and vote,” she added.
“What Anambra needs now more than anything is peace, we need peace for progress, we need peace for security, we need peace for the development that is coming and that has come.
“We do not need violence, we have had enough killings, thank God we have security in Anambra more than most states, we must ensure that is sustained.
“We will be denying ourselves that if we fail to come out and vote and protect our votes.
“I am pleading that all leaders come out and tell their followers to ensure that they come out and vote come 18th of November.
“We must not stay at home on the 18th, we must exercise our civic rights,” she said.
God bless All Of Us
