The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige, has said the All Progressives Congress will produce the next governor of Anambra State.

 Ngige stated this on Friday night during a stakeholders’ meeting of the party in Awka, the Anambra State capital.

The meeting was attended by APC governorship aspirants in the state, including Dr. George Moghalu, Senator Andy Uba, Dr. Tony Nwoye, Eng. Barth Nwibe, Dr. Obinna Uzor, among others.

Ngige said, “Mark my words, on November 19, 2017, an APC candidate  will be declared the winner of Anambra State governorship election and on  March 17, next year, he will be sworn in as the governor of the state.

“Nothing will stop this because we will work hard for it. Besides, the man currently occupying the position has lost the support of the people because of poor performance.”

Also speaking, the leader of the South-East committee set up for the evaluation of the upcoming Anambra governorship poll, Senator Jim Nwobodo, said defeating the incumbent Governor Willie Obiano, would be the simplest fight the party would be involved in.

He said, “We won’t fight but we will take over Anambra State. It’s the easiest fight we shall do. The most important task we must achieve is to get a credible candidate that will win the election.”     Nwobodo urged members and delegates of the party to shun money politics during the party’s primary.
