Nze Nwakpo: I’ll Do A Great Job As Anambra Governor ~Omonaijablog

By Shaba Gbenga

The Igbo political leader and peace-maker who served as the Special Advisor on Technical Matters to President Goodluck Jonathan and Secretary/Member of the Presidential Subsidy Reinvestment and Empowerment Program (SURE-P) Committee until 1 August 2013, who has been speaking about his programmes and plans for a greater Anambra stated that nobody can afford to be indifferent in this election because the stakes are very high.

Before his emergence as the candidate of ADC in the state, he has been arguing that in choosing a representative, the electorate must weigh all the options which include the contestants, their track record and ability, among other things before that all-important decision.

Nze Nwakpo therefore called on everyone living in Anambra: indigenes, non-indigenes as well as all registered voters in the state to rally support for his candidacy as the governorship election approaches by urging them to get their voter's card ready and come out in his quest to fulfill his mantra of 'Anambra family first' mission a possibility.

Nevertheless, many people in Anambra State believe that Nze Nwakpo is the candidate to beat, given his temperament, breeding, excellent education, good family name and interesting professional life, even though he has refused to flaunt these virtues.

A conflict resolution consultancy in Port Harcourt. Nwakpo worked with companies such as Royal Dutch Shell, Chevron Corporation, and Total S.A. in the Niger and developed third-party strategies for managing oilfield conflicts.

He co-authored the Peace and Security Strategy (PASS) for Shell Companies in Nigeria together with WAC Global Services. During this period, Nwankpo worked for the Government of Bayelsa State (2003–2007), where he developed the Bayelsa Partnership Initiative. From 1997 -1998, Nwankpo was a conflict resolution consultant to Yakubu Gowon Centre, where he played an active role in designing and implementing the Peace Initiative for the Ogoni-Shell Crisis.

Despite all this, he however, insists that he will do a great job as governor of Anambra State because he is prepared and ready to work for the people.

According to him, “I am a candidate of men and women, young and old, people of all faiths and religions and also people of all callings.

“While calling on the delegates to vote for him at the primary election, Nwankpo said "it is only God who makes kings. I pray that the wish of the people will come to pass. Let the will of God prevail in Anambra state. An ADC government will ensure that all Anambra families benefit from their government. We will provide jobs and public services like healthcare. Our great party ADC will have a new deal with Ndi Anambra. It is time to give the voice back to the people".”.

Nze Nwakpo equally promised to do everything necessary to lift the State from where it is currently to where it should be, given its potentials in both human and natural resources.

That was why the ADC candidate in his address to Ndi Anambra promises to make it 'Anambra family first' in his administration.
