Anambra Decides: How Peter Obi Influenced Council To Help PDP’s Candidate; Valentine Ozigbo


The race to succeed Governor Willie Obiano, which began a few months ago, is gradually coming to an end as the stage is finally set for the Anambra state governorship election on November 6, 2021. In less than 18 hours, voting will begin at various polling units across the state, and each candidate will rely on his supporters and electorates to become the state’ s new Governor.

Valentine Ozigbo of the Peoples Democratic Party is one of the leading candidates for Anambra’ s top office (PDP). Professor Charles Chukwuma Soludo of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Senator Andy Uba of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Ifeanyi Ubah of the Young Progressives Party (YPP), and about 14 other candidates from various political parties would be up against him.

With the APGA ruling the state for the past 16 years, many people believe that its candidate, Professor Soludo, is the favorite to win the election. On the other hand, some have argued that because the APC is Nigeria’ s ruling party, and because of the massive defection of APGA members to the APC, its candidate, Senator Andy Uba, has a good chance of winning the election.

Valentine Ozigbo, the PDP’ s candidate, is heavily backed by Peter Obi, a former governor of the state and the PDP’ s Vice Presidential candidate for the 2019 presidential election. Peter Obi, who served as the state’ s Executive Governor for the first and second terms under the APGA, was undoubtedly a pillar of the party in Anambra and a powerful former governor.


His influence within and outside the PDP family in Anambra state may be sufficient to assist Valentine Ozigbo in realizing his governorship ambition. Despite the fact that the former Governor is now a member of the PDP, many people in the state still admire him and may be willing to vote for his preferred candidate, Ozigbo. His influence in state politics, as well as the affection that many people have for him, may lead them to vote for his preferred candidate.

Again, Peter Obi’ s growing popularity and achievements while in office may persuade many voters to support whoever he supports to become the next Governor of Anambra State.


This is because some of the electorates who admire him believe that whoever he supports has the ability to lead the state. With this in mind, it is not surprising that Ozigbo has been appointed as the new Governor of Anambra State.
