Chief George Moghalu, a prominent member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) founding fathers and the former Managing Director of the National Inland Waterways Authority (NIWA), offered his thoughts on the impending Anambra State gubernatorial election. Chief Moghalu voiced his doubts about Ifeanyi Ubah’s prospects of winning the election under the APC’s banner in an interview with The Nation.
Chief Moghalu conveyed his belief that the era when elections in Anambra were determined solely by popularity contests has come to an end. He emphasized the necessity for the APC to foster an enabling environment and ensure a level playing field for all interested individuals within the party. His stance reflects a commitment to fair and transparent electoral processes, advocating for equal opportunities for every aspirant.
In his own words as seen in The Nation…
“You said that the party’s leadership believes that Senator Ifeanyi Ubah can win Anambra for the APC but I tell you that those days when elections are won in that manner are gone. Every interested person will throw his heart in the ring. The party must create an enabling environment and a level playing field for every interested person.”
