Candidate of the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) in the just concluded governorship election in Anambra state, Dr Obiora Okonkwo, has pledged to fulfil the promises he made to Ndi Anambra during the campaigns.
Okonkwo gave the assurance during a Thanksgiving mass at the Blessed Iwene Tansi Catholic Church, Umudioka.
He said his resolve to work for the good of Anambra state had been strengthened by the support he got from the people during the campaigns.
According to him, touring the 21 local government areas of the state during the campaigns showed him the reality of the developmental challenges of the state.
He called on Anambra people to support Prof. Charles Soludo, the governor-elect, with prayers; Dr Okonkwo said there is much work to do to impact the lives of the people.
“I have come here today and, in your midst, to ask you to join me to thank the Almighty God for leading us through the campaigns peacefully. It was a tough call. We faced challenges of insecurity, and it affected our campaigns.
“People were scared. But God saw us through. We had no losses. So, since we handed this journey to the hands of God when we took off, it is proper that we return here to thank him for seeing us through.
“As I said during the campaigns, I did not get involved in the race for personal benefits. I am satisfied with what God has blessed me with. I got involved for the good of our state.
Remember also that I had prayed at the outset that if it was the will of God to use me for the task ahead, I was ready. I had also prayed that if it was not the will of God for me, then God should assign someone else,” he said.
