Anambra ‘ex-deputy governor’s’ hubby joins Senate race

DENNIS Onyemaechi Odife, a stockbroker and banker, has declared his interest to run for the Anambra North Senatorial seat. Odife is the husband of a former deputy governor of Anambra State, Mrs. Stella Odife.

He is running on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), which he described as the only party that can offer internal democracy through free and fair primaries.

He challenged the people to make sure they troop out to vote on the election day as well as protect their votes, saying “if you don’t cast your votes, you won’t elect credible person you want. Be active member of your party. If you do these, your community will get good roads, electricity, water and other basic infrastructure”.

Urging the community to join the PDP, Odife noted that “it is only by proper performance of his roles that an individual would have contributed his own quota in selecting the best man for the job in the primaries and elections proper.

“I urge you to understand and to play your roles so that we can indeed say welcome to a government of the people by the people and for the people in 2011 in Nigeria.”

Mrs. Odife, ex-deputy governor of the State during the Andy Uba short stinct, urged the people to support her husband.

She said that “this time, everybody, fathers, mothers, youths must show interest in who represent them in the coming election”, pointing out that the era of thuggery, snatching of ballot boxes, violence and other forms of electoral malpractice was over in the country.

She added that the law enforcements agents will deal with any person who perpetuates any form of electoral fraud in the next year’s general elections.
