Igbo back Candido, Onuchukwu for AMAC chair
The Ohaneze Ndigbo and Ibo Community Assembly, ICA, has endorsed Hon. Adamu Candido and Lawrence Onuchukwu of the All Progressives Congress, APC, for the AMAC chairmanship in the forthcoming area council election slated for March 16.
The groups, through the paramount ruler of Ndigbo in the Federal Capital Territory, Eze Ibeh Nwosu, made this known when Onuchukwu, sought royal blessings for his vice chairmanship aspiration at the traditional ruler’s palace.
The politician urged Ndigbo to learn from the mistakes of the previous general election and shun “politics of antagonism.”
The royal father urged contestants to go with the fear of God as well as make promises which they can fulfil.
In his words, “we are happy you came to identify with your people, you have not forgotten your root. We will mobilize our people who are resident in AMAC to come out en masse to vote for you and your party during the forthcoming election.”
He urged the Candido/Onuchukwu group not to renege from its campaign promises to Ndigbo.
In his speech, Onuchukwu, who is the running mate to Candido, promised to work effectively with his principal in order to bring the much needed dividends of democracy to the grassroots.
