• ZLP warns group to steer clear
Obiora said what the state needed at the moment was a competent and credible leader who will address its developmental challenges, adding that the issue of zoning in the state was an agenda of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) initiated during the era of former governor Peter Obi and promoted by the current government.
Similarly, National Chairman of Zenith Labour Party (ZLP), Dan Nwanyanwu, has argued that zoning will deny Anambra the opportunity to get the right kind of candidate to lead the state.
He disclosed that his party is more interested in getting a candidate that has the capacity to win the election irrespective of his zone.
Nwanyanwu said: “Ohanaeze is a socio-cultural organisation and should not dabble into partisan politics unless it is working for a particular person or party.
“Ohanaeze cannot determine for political parties what to do. So, it is in its interest to stay off such issues unless otherwise it will be obvious that it is working for a particular person or political party.”
