The governorship candidate for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the November 6 Anambra State guber polls Dr Andy Uba on Tuesday kick-started his campaign at Onitsha North and South Local Government Areas of the state.
The APC candidate was received at the two council areas by mammoth crowd.
Dr Uba promised that under his watch as the governor of Anambra State, Onitsha would get special attention in the area of infrastructure facilities.
”There is no other better time to prioritise Onitsha Urban renewal than now. If nothing is done urgently, we will have a city that will be impossible for anyone to move around.
“As governor, we are going to drive integrated Urban renewal that will end the increasing crime rate in Onitsha. The menace of touts is already threatening businesses in and around Onitsha and our state economy is the worse for it.
“Accordingly, there will also be a new policy regime on revenue collection that won’t be a threat to Our people, but instead help to boost the state’s economy.
“Onitsha has been abandoned for years now and we are coming to rescue it from the status of an abandoned city by successive governments.” Dr Uba declared.
The APC candidate said that he had overall development of Onitsha in mind when he sponsored National Inland Waterways Bill, Consumer Protection Bill, Railway Corporation Bill, National Road Infrastructure Fund Bill and the Nigeria Ports and Harbour Authority Bill when he was in the upper chamber of the National Assembly.
