The Anambra Women Organisation, AWO, has pledged to contribute money to support in Dr. Chris Ngge’s governorship campaign.
The women also promised to mobile their over 122,000 members in 346 wards, including non-indigenes, to vote for him in the scheduled November 16 governorship election.
The group made the pledge when Ngige visited the women yesterday at Ezinifite in Aguata Local Government Area of the state to inform them about his governorship aspiration.
The women said they would fulfil the pledge because within 32 months, Ngige, as governor, wiped their tears through free education, payment of accumulated teachers’ salaries, construction of roads, etc.
The Chairperson of the group, Mrs. Gladys Obieke, who led the women to sing Ngige’s praises, said Anambra State was once more in a situation requiring his prudent leadership.
In his response, Ngige said he was impressed by the organised manner the group was formed and pledged to incorporate its members in government if elected.
He said: “I did not fail you before and I will not fail you even this time. Anambra State needs solid foundation which I started the blueprint and 80 per cent of it has not been actualised.
“Roads’ construction in Anambra is my brainchild; we did erosion control roads and hired the best road contractors. I refused to share money and told them I wanted to use it to pay pensioners.”
