George Moghalu spoke to journalists on Thursday in Awka, Anambra State after he held a meeting with the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state, to notify them of his intention to run for the governorship seat of the state.
He said: “President Buhari has done well in the South-east, and I’m running for the governorship of the state to consolidate on his achievements in the zone.”
He explained that he visited the State Secretariat to seek the support of the leaders of the party in the coming APC governorship primary, to win the election.
He assured that if he wins the party’s governorship ticket, he will win the election.
“The governorship election would be a tough contest, and I urge all members of the party to brace up to the challenge of working for the party’s victory.
“I advise particularly my co-aspirants to desist from name calling, but, to sell themselves by explaining to the people what they intend to do for the state if elected,” George Moghalu.
He urged the party to ensure that a person with impeccable pedigree was chosen as candidate of the party in the election.
