Senate Minority Leader, Eyinnaya Abaribe, has advised Anambra people to drop their fears over the forthcoming governorship poll

The lawmaker, Abaribe, gave the advise against the backdrop of attacks in the State ahead of the November 6 exercise.

He spoke on Thursday at a rally for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Valentine Ozigbo at Atani Central School in Ogbaru.

Abaribe charged citizens to apply their rights, noting that security agencies were working to ensure peaceful election.

The Senator stated that what Anambra and South-East needs is proper leadership, not “champagne drinkers and confused people as governors”.

He said many can attest to the fact that the state is broken and needs visionary management to rescue it from the doldrums.

“Do not be afraid coming out to vote. Come out and exercise your franchise. Security agencies are already top of the situation”, Abaribe said.

In his remarks, Ozjbgbo, whose running mate is Azuka Enemo, assured that the PDP will ensure good governance in Anambra.

Former Governor and PDP 2019 vice presidential candidate, Peter Obi, PDP Anambra flagbearer in 2017, Oseloka Obaze, and other party chieftains attended the event.

With threats from IPOB secessionists to disrupt elections in the state, legitimate concerns have risen as regards the safety of voters.
