The former Minister of Aviation, Ms Stella Oduah, has begun mobilisation of the stakeholders’ support for her ambition to contest the Anambra North Senatorial District seat in the 2015 general elections.
Addressing supporters in Onitsha on Friday, Oduah said she would provide effective representation and credible voice for the zone.
The zone comprises seven local government areas in Anambra State – Anambra West, Ayamelum, Anambra East, Oyi, Onitsha North, Onitsha South and Ogbaru.
She said the zone would be restored to its pride of place where the people’s creativity and entrepreneurial skills would top her priority, if voted into power.
Oduah, who had already picked the nomination form, announced her campaign team members, including Chief Okwudili Uzoka as Chairman; Mrs Stella Odife, Dr Alex Obiogbolu and Chief Basil Ejidike.
Uzoka, Chairman of the Campaign team, lamented that the zone had suffered poor representation at the federal level.
He expressed the confidence that Oduah’s record and achievements had helped to restore the pride of the people.
Oduah will battle Senator Joy Emordi and Senator Margery Okadigbo, the incumbent and widow of former Senate President, Dr Chuba Okadigbo, for the PDP ticket. (NAN)
