Anambra election: Ngige bill boards vandalised by hoodlums

There are indications that the November 16 governorship election in Anambra State will be violent, following the pulling down of campaign bill boards of the All Progressives Congress (APC) candiadte, Senator Chris Ngige, by some hoodlums  alleged to be supporters of the ruling party in the state, All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA).

So far, one of the hoodlums has been arrested by the state police command while three others  ran away, when the commercial motorcycle operators and some artisans at the Aroma junction, Awka, and some members of Ngige campaign organisation chase them.

An eyewitness said the thugs, who came in an Anambra State government white hummer bus, had already pulled down 49 Ngig’s bill boards along Onitsha-Awka –Enugu expressway, before they challenged at Aroma junction and beaten up by artisans and Okada riders, while fruit and food vendors rained abuses on them.

Reacting to the incident, the Director, Media and Publicity of Ngige Campaign organisation, chief Charles Amilo, described it as the height of brigandage by Governor Peter Obi which shows frustration over the total rejection of the APGA-led government.

“Anambra people have discovered his grand deceit and knows that the man he wants to impose on the state cannot fly, hence he has chosen to use force and all manner of violence to cow Anambra people.

He knows that we have a brand that has already sold itself 70 per cent and that is why out of frustration he has chosen to use of violence, which Anambra people will surely resist.”

  1. people will be surprise.. as for me, Ifeanyi Ubah goes.. pls dnt ask m why.. with him, governance will be intresting..

  2. IF IT IS TRUTH THAT SOME PEOPLE PULLED DOWN SENATOR NGIGE’S BILL-BOARD FOR WHATEVER REASON, SUCH ACT IS QUITE CONDEMNABLE.

    HOWEVER, I WANT TO TELL MR CHARLES AMILO THE DIRECTOR OF NGIGE CAMPAIGN ORGANIZATION THAT PETER OBI’S WORK IN ANAMBRA STATE IS OUTSTANDING. NO AMOUNT OF PROPAGANDA TO DAMAGE HIS IMAGE WILL WORK OUT FOR THE APC.

    I AM SAYING THIS IN ALL HONESTY SINCE I AM NOT A POLITICIAN AND WILL ALWAYS WANT THE BEST FOR MY PEOPLE NDI-ANAMBRA.

    THE NOVEMBER 16TH ELECTION HAS FOUR MAJOR PARTIES IN THE FIGHT. OUT OF THE FOUR ONE OF THE PARTIES HAS A VERY GOOD CANDIDATE BUT WAS IN THE WRONG PARTY. THE PERSON IS SENATOR CHRIS NGIGE OF APC PARTY. HE IS DEFEATED ALREADY.

    NOW WE HAVE APGA, LABOUR AND PDP AS THE THREE CONTENDERS.
    IF THE RUMOUR THAT THE PDP IS FIELDING A CONSENSUS CANDIDATE FROM ANAMBRA NORTH, LABOR PARTY (IFEANYI UBAH) WILL HAVE A FIELD DAY.

    BUT IF THE RUMOR WAS A LIE, THE THREE PARTIES WILL SLUG IT OUT.
    APC SHOULD HOWEVER STOP CRYING WOLVES NOW AS PEOPLE WILL ALWAYS VOTE THEIR PREFERENCE WHETHER THERE IS BILL OR NOT.

  3. Ngige and APC are already crying on their downfall

  4. DON’T VOTE A P C THEY ARE BOKO HARAM PARTY

  5. Pointing accusing fingers at Peter Obi and APGA will not help you Ngige. This is a sign to show that APC party are loosing ground massively. Ngige is just crying foul and blaming his failure on Obi and APGA. Billboards are not what wins election but manifestos, integrity and preparedness of the Party, coupled with the acceptance of the party and electoral candidate by the electorates.

    • then why pull them down. you are a hypocrite

      • Yo do not need to be a fool here and believes every cheap lies. This bill boards pull down was only but allegation. Ngiges campaign manager as wise as he may have been forgot to post a single picture of the so call pulled down bill boards. Is he tell us that in this modern and digital world he was not smart enough to support his claims with evidence? I pity Ngige for choosing him as a campaign manager.

  6. Anambra people will vote for Willie Obiano come Nov 16. We cannot vote a muslim party in our state

  7. Luks like dey are scared of dis Ngige man already. Na wah oh!!!
