The All Progressive Congress, (APC) has postponed the flag-off of its Anambra governorship campaign rallies indefinitely, due to insecurity and the recent killings in the state.
The party’s gubernatorial candidate, Senator Andy Uba confirmed the postponement of the events originally scheduled to commence today. Senator Uba announced that the postponement became necessary due to the security challenges as well as to honor the victims of various attacks in the state in recent times.
Recall that the entire South Easth, especially Imo and Anambra States have been embroiled in political crisis for some times now. This has led to wanton loss of lives and property, including the murder of Dr Chike Akunyili, the spouse of the late Professor Dora Akunyili, former DG, NAFFAC and former Minister for Information and communication.
“As a mark of respect and honour for all those who have lost their lives, we have decided to cancel the campaign flag-off rally scheduled for Saturday”, he said.
The Gubernatorial aspirant added that his party prioritises the safety of lives over political interests. No new date has been fixed for the commencement of the campaigns.
