From all indications, Godwin Maduka, medical doctor and frontline PDP governorship candidate for the 2021 Anambra governorship election may be coasting home to victory at the primary election slated for the 26th of June. This assertion is as a result of the increase in the followership and support he is presently enjoying accros the sate. Credence was given to this permutaions from several opinion polls that have been conducted so far both electronically and physically where he led his co aspirants wit wide margins.
Last weekend, his campaign organisation hosted the 3 man adhoc delegate committee across the state in his campaign headquarters at Awka Anambra state. Our reporters who covered the reception report that what was ordinarily meant to be a reception for the delegates turned out to be a very well attended event as people of the state trooped out in thousands to witness the event and also show support to Maduka who most of them say is the best choice for PDP and Anambra state in general based on his love for the state and the legacies he has left on the ground for the people.
While addressing the massive crowd, Dr Maduka said he is not a political jobber but had to sacrifice his thriving business in the united state to offer himself for good governance for his people of Anambra state as he has long noticed the poor level of governance in the state.
He said his aspiration to govern Anambra is not born out of the quest to amass wealth as career politicians do but to even use his God given wealth to change the narratives of Anambra state. Maduka reminded the people that non of the contestants has displayed the level of love he has shown the people of the state through philanthropy, improvement of security, education, health care delivery, infrastructural development and scholarships, which he sad has made Anambra one of the most literate states in Nigeria today. Maduka added that a good day starts with an early morning sun pointing out that his accomplishments in the state are evidences to his readiness to work for the state and challenged the other aspirants to show proof of what they have been able to do for the people before aspiring to rule them. He concluded by telling the people to vote their conscience and reminded them that a non Maduka vote is a curse to the state. Some people who spoke to our reporters at the reception said that Maduka is the best candidate for the state based on his pedigree and what he has done for the people adding that Maduka was the first individual in Anambra state to reach out to the people of the state by sharing palliatives running into billions across the state. This they said he did even before the state government.
Others said that Maduka has shown capacity and commitment to the state through his philanthropic gestures adding that he will do more for the state. They said the people of the state believe so much in him because they believe he will change the face of the state as he did in his Umuchukwu community of Orumba south where he has invested several billions of his personal funds to turn into a mega city. Many more who spoke to us are of the opinion that a man who has invested his billions of Naira to help his people even without holding any government position will surely deliver when given the mandate.
As it is, the Maduka’s camp is confident of coming out victorious at the primary election as his supporters seem to increase by the day.
