Anambra Ex-Chief Judge Declares Presidential Bid

A former Chief Judge of Anambra State, Professor Peter Nnanna Umeadi, has joined the list of the nation’s Presidential aspirants for the 2023 election.

Umeadi will contest the election on the platform of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA).

In his declaration speech, Umeadi pledged to administer Nigeria with firmness and fairness and reposition the country to the path of progress, harmony and prosperity.

He announced this in a statement addressed to the National Chairman of APGA, Ozonkpu Victor Oye and issued on Friday.

The Anambra chieftain also disclosed that the priority of his government if he emerges as president will be to initiate genuine reconciliation across the length and breadth of the country.

He said : “The governing class, that is men and women who find themselves entrusted with the power to govern should learn to remove their personal interest from the picture.

“Governance should be seen for what it is, holding forth for the masses of Nigerian citizens, showing that the natural and human resources of our richly endowed country would be applied to and for the benefit of the greatest number of our citizens.

“I say that Nigeria could only be repositioned from within. We all need to roll up our sleeves and go to work in all facets of our national life and we should be able to reposition Nigeria in 4 years from 2023”.

Continuing, Umeadi pledged to usher in patriotism, collective reconstruction of the nation’s economy, upliftment of all segments of the society, promoting probity, accountability and dedication in public and private lives.

The ex-Anambra chief judge also said having served under the government of former Anambra State Governor, Peter Obi as Chief Judge for three years and the same position under the incumbent Governor, Willie Obiano for five years, he has the capacity, sense of history, humility and self-effacement to reconcile and weld ethnic groups together.

Umeadi further assured that his efforts would be geared towards a Nigeria where justice would reign for all citizens equally, irrespective of tribe or status.

“We should arrive for a sound education, affordable health care, food on the table, security of lives and property and peoples ability to achieve their life ambitions in a setting presenting a level playing field and predetermined standards.

“Nigeria requires change which only good leadership could provide. We need to change the way we think so we could change the way we do things. If I get the ticket of APGA then we stand a good chance to win the presidential election in 2023”, Umeadi said.

Adebayo Sues For Peace In Ekiti APC Primary

As the All progressives Congress (APC) members in Ekiti State go to polls on Thursday to elect their gubernatorial candidate in the June 2022 election, the Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, Otunba Adeniyi Adebayo has called for a rancour-free election.

In a statement on Wednesday by Special Assistant on Media, Ifedayo Sayo, the minister sued for peace amongst party members, urging them to conduct themselves in a peaceful manner.

According to him, the primary is a family affair and nobody must stand in the way of the party in ensuring that the election is hitch-free and peaceful.

He also called on the party leadership to ensure a level-playing ground for all the aspirants, saying equal treatment for the aspirants would make reconciliation easy at the end of the election.

The former governor admonished the aspirants not to see the election as a do-or-die affair, pointing out that they must put the interest of the party above other interests.

He called on the aspirants to accept the outcome of the primary in good faith and resist the temptation of being used against the party in the coming elections.

The former president has been very frequent at the seat of power, hobnobbing with his successor.

This has created anxiety in the ruling party, which has other presidential aspirants from the South, should APC decide to zone its presidential ticket to the region.

Last year, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had alleged that the APC was wooing Jonathan but the APC responded saying he was free to contest on its platform.

Jonathan has been absent from key PDP functions of late. He did not attend the party’s convention, which held late last year.
