The former President said, “We must all collectively, defend democracy; elections should be free and fair; do what you can to make democracy succeed.”, urging the people of Anambra state to vote for Obaze who will bring development to the state, adding, that “Obaze is enterprising, he has a lot to offer the people and he will ensure good governance.”

Former President Jonathan used the occasion to thank Nigerians, especially, the people of South East for their support to him and the PDP, stating. “Anambra State remains a PDP state, founding fathers of the party are from Anambra State.

Also speaking, former Governor Peter Obi of Anambra State accused Governor Willie Obianor who is seeking re-election on the platform of the All Progressive Grand Alliance(APGA) Party of misappropriating the funds of the state and called on the people of Anambra State to vote for Obaze because, he will develop the infrastructure of the state.

“Of all the money that Willie Obiano received, he did not construct a kilometre of road in Onitsha within four years of his being in office,” Obi stated.

Speaking in the same vein, chairman of PDP Governor’s Forum, Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State enjoined the people of Anambra to vote for the candidate of the PDP. 

Mr. Fayose accompanied by his Gombe State counterpart, Alhaji Ibrahim Dakwanbo had met Governor Ifeanyi Okowa at the Asaba International Airport from where they moved to Onitsha for the rally which was described by pundits as mother of all rallies and clear indications that PDP will clinch the guber seat.

On his part, the Rivers state Governor, Nyesom Wike called on the people of Anambra State to watch out for those who may want to rig in the elections, noting that other political parties were aware that they could not win without rigging but, such could be checked by the people for their choice to emerge.
