Senator Chris Ngige of the Action Congress of Nigeria said that the 2014 governorship election in Anambra state will provide the test case for the proposed merger between the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) and other political parties.

Dr. Chris Ngige: opens constituency office

Ngige, representing Anambra Central Senatorial zone, made this known in Awka on Sunday at the opening of his constituency office in Awka South Local Government area of the state.

He expressed optimism that the fresh talks ACN had with other opposition parties
would ensure a smooth take-over of power from the PDP in 2015 general elections.

According to him, the talk is to help save the country from the grip of the ruling party
under whose watch the country is experiencing insecurity.

“ACN is the leading opposition party in the country and it behoves it to reach out to other opposition political parties to talk on how the country could be taken away from the grip of the PDP, so as to save the country,” he said.

Ngige, a former governor in the state, used the occasion to reward party faithful with eight Toyota Camry cars.

He also distributed bags of rice, cartons of tomato, saying it was part of his constituency project to the people.

Other items announced as constituency projects were a N100 million scholarship grant to students.

He also gave cash donations to churches, schools and orphanages; with a promise to train women and youths on skills acquisition by March 2013.

Ngige said seven constituency offices would be opened in all the seven Local Governments that made up the senatorial zone to facilitate easy access to information.

    Senator Chris Ngige is a good leader, it would have been better to remain in Nationall Assembly for more two tenures before retiring from active politics. If he contest again for senate he will still win. But he should forget being the next Governor of Anambra State because it will never work again. Especially now that a lot of factors are working against him such as Anambra North Issue. If ACN wants to win the forth coming election they should be wise enough to search for a crdible candidate fro Anambra North to be their flag bearer. .Its is the turn of Anambra North to produce the next Governor of Anambra State. They have enough credible candidates to occupy that seat. Lets allow and support them because they have been politically marginalized enough in the state afairs.They have been supporting other zones since the creation of the state, let us at least for once reciprocate by giving the a chance. Those that have been there before and are jostling to go back, did they foget anything in that office, just greed. Comrade Sunday Chidube- President Anambra North Youths Association

    There is nothing like zoning in Anambra state. Anambra is in dire need of development. What we want most at this crucial time is OUR best candidates to contest and lead us out of poverty and lack/poor pace of development. Where ever the candidate comes from so be it…Please wise up people, we need change…we need change NOW
