Willie Obiano.

The people of Anambra State have rejected the leadership style of their governor, Chief Willie Obiano whose highhandedness was choking them to death in the state.


The example is what just happened to him at the just concluded elections which has produced those who will represent the state at the National Assembly, with the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), the party of the governor, winning just four out of the eleven federal constituency polls in Anambra from results so far announced by Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on the National Assembly elections.

APGA also lost all Senatorial seats in the state, with the Central seat, currently occupied by the former National Chairman of APGA, Sen. Victor Umeh, losing his seat to his arch-rival, Sen. Uche Ekwunife of PDP, while Sen. Stella Oduah won Anambra North and Chief Ifeanyi Ubah emerged first senator-elect for Anambra South on the platform of the newly registered Young Progressives Party, YPP.

Announcig the results in Awka on Monday, INEC says, Chinedo Obidigwe of APGA won the Anambra East and Anambra West Federal Constituency, Muoma Ifeanyi, the APGA candidate for Ihiala and the candidate for Orumba North and South, Okwudili Ezenwankwo as well as Oba Umeorji for Aguata Federal Constituency, won their elections.

On the other hand, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidates won in six federal constituencies, including; Nnewi North and South (Chris Azubuogu), Anaocha/Njikoka/Dunukofia (Val Anyika), and Awka North and South (Sam Onwuaso).
Others are: Ogbaru Federal Constituency (Chu Chu Onyema), Onitsha North and South (Linda Ikpeazu) and Oyi/Ayamelu Federal Constituency (Vincent Ofumelu).

Idemili North and South Federal Constituency currently occupied by Rep. Obinna Chidoka (PDP) is the only area yet to be announced by INEC.

A political analyst described the outcome of the elections in Anambra as a departure from the November 2017 governorship election which Gov. Willie Obiano won.

 “What played out in Saturday’s election shows that APGA needs to sit up if it must remain politically relevant,” Mr Anayo Okoli, a political analyst said.
