The African Democratic Congress (ADC) ,  Wednesday, elected the special envoy to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Nze Akachukwu Nwankpo as its governorship candidate for the forthcoming November 6, 2021 election in Anambra state.

Nwankpo who recently dumped his former All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) Party along with his teeming supporters for the ADC said he was very at home and settled down in his new party.

He pointed out that his lofty dream for Anambra’s greatness has remained evergreen, “hence I joined ADC to actualise my ambition and vision for greater Anambra. ADC is a credible platform with no political baggage, Anambra people need a breathe of fresh air.

In his acceptance speech before the tumultuous crowd of supporters/delegates, Nwankpo thanked them for the opportunity, assuring that he would run an open door policy.

He promised to step up the state security, adding that his administration would ensure that no soul in Anambra state would be lost again to the hoodlums.

"We will revitalise the Agriculture and other sectors of the economy. I assure you that in the coming days we will move to the street to return sanity. We are going to build on it," he maintained. 

The candidate noted that “ADC is a party that has been on ground for long and presents a credible platform for a man with high electability and burning passion for the good of his people,” he said.

That his decision to join ADC was in response to the pressure from his supporters that he should get a platform to contest the Nov. 6 election and allow the people of Anambra decide.

Earlier, the National Chairman of the party, Chief Ralph Okey Nwosu, noted that success of ADC in the November 6 poll would mark an end to holiganism of the state polity, which according to him, has etched deep into 'our system of governance.'

The party’s Governorship Electoral Committee chairman, Chief Anayo Arinze, announced Nwankpo as winner of the primary after a total of 7051 eligible delegates of the party in attendance gave him overwhelming 'yes' voice votes.

Accepting his nomination, the flag bearer, Nze Akachukwu Nwankpo, thanked the delegates for the opportunity, assuring that he would run an open door policy.

He promised to step up the state security, added that his administration would ensure that no soul in Anambra state would be lost again to the hoodlums.

"We will revitalise the Agriculture and other sectors of the economy. I assure you that in the coming days we will move to the street to return sanity. We are going to build on it," he maintained. 

Also speaking, the Chairman, ADC Board of Trustees, Senator Patricia Akwashiki, urged Anambra state electorates to rally round their party candidate as his administration would give voice to all including the less privileged.
