VICTOR OYE: IT IS LIKELY THE NEXT ANAMBRA GOVERNOR WILL COME FROM THE SOUTH
The National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, Chief Victor Oye, has said that the next governor of Anambra State in 2022 should come from Anambra South Senatorial District.
Oye stated this in an interview with a news agency on Thursday in Amawbia, Awka South Local Government Area of the state.
He said, “The zoning arrangement was started by Peter Obi as an APGA governor then.
“Obi insisted that the governor that would succeed him should come from the north district. Now that the north has done five years, we have just three years to go, and it is very likely it will go to the South.
“When it has gone round, then it can start again from where it started. Everything about the future is in the hands of God, but as a political party, I would like it to go to the south district for equity sake.”
Reviewing his four years as the national chairman of the party, Oye said the party had grown to a level where the welfare of its members should be given priority.
He added, “We are going to look at the welfare of our members. We believe that this party has reached a level where it should be able to take care of its members, not only about politics all the time.
“We are working with some agencies on how we can send our 36 state chairmen and others abroad for leadership programmes, so that they get developed intellectually and even administratively, so that they acquire more skills on how to administer the party.
“This is something we have been doing silently, but this time, we are going to promote it so that it will reflect our overall vision.”
