As the governorship election in Anambra State draw near, the All Progressives Congress (APC), is counting on its growing popularity in the South-East geopolitical zone which it believed will guarantee its victory in the forthcoming election.

Buni, said that the inauguration of the committee underscored the importance which APC attached to the committee and the task before it, adding that members of the committee were carefully selected based on their individual capacities and the belief that they would collectively deliver the state to the party.
He advised members of the committee to work as a team and likewise carry everyone on along; especially those who were aggrieved by the outcome of the party’s governorship primaries.
Buni also advised the committee to reconcile the seeming differences among party members; stressing that this had become necessary to enable APC to confront the governorship election with a united front.
He expressed optimism that the committee would do the party proud and also capture the state.
“The growing fortunes of the party in Anambra in particular; and the South-East geopolitical zone, in general, have increased its hope for victory.
“This will, no doubt, increase our chances of winning the election with a landslide victory,” he said.

“We should remain resolute, committed and law-abiding throughout the assignment and beyond,” he said.
