Governor Obiano Dedicates Soludo’s Victory To Ebenebe Woman Who Rejected N5000 Bribe For Vote
Anambra State Governor and Chairman, Board of Trustees of All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, Willie Obiano has dedicated the victory of Professor Charles Chukwuma Soludo to the woman at Ebenebe community in the Awka North local government area of the state who rejected the 5000 naira bribe allegedly given to her by party agent to vote in the just concluded governorship election in the state.
The Ebenebe woman was seen in the viral video refusing to be bribed to vote against her preferred candidate in the election on Saturday.
The party agent blocked the woman and doled out cash but the woman rejected the 5000 naira alleged bribe and fought her way to vote her preferred candidate.
Governor Obiano said the outcome of the governorship election presents hope and new beginning for the people of Anambra state.
“Fellow citizens, this sweet victory belongs to you. It belongs to that courageous woman in Ebenebe who turned down the N5000 bribe for her vote because she knew that though money could buy her temporary relief, but Anambra would be a better place if she voted according to her conscience”, he said.
The governor said the victory also belong to all loyal party men and women who he said resisted temptations of financial inducement from rival parties to fight under the banner of APGA because they knew that victory for APGA is victory for the ordinary citizens of our dear state.
“And finally, it belongs to Ndi Anambra at home and in the Diaspora who stood behind APGA, not because we have met all the expectations of our people but because even in the foundation my Team and I have laid so far, they see enough sunlight to believe that Anambra State is like the sun which is bound to rise, against all odds. And that is why we won this election.
“Ndi Anambra, in pursuit of excellence, we placed merit above narrow interests. We choose a candidate whose pedigree announces itself. Prof Chukwuma Soludo has a name to protect. I have no doubt that he will not let you down.
“However, on a personal level, Ndi Anambra, you have made me proud. You have shown the world that when a determined people come together as one in pursuit of what is right and just, they bend the arc of justice in their favour”.
