According to him, the parties have agreed to adopt him as their consensus candidate to actualise the collective interest of the Anambra people at the November 6, election.
He said the arrangement would be of immense benefit to the electorates and also put an end to the bad administration of the three major political parties, the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Anambra State.
He said the key political stakeholders in Anambra have already embraced the coalition arrangement on the platform of the ZLP, with Chief Okonkwo as a consensus candidate.
“The arrangements have been concluded with the key stakeholders in the state as well as the seven minority parties on the use of the ZLP as a coalition platform to actualise the collective interest of the people at the November 6 elections.
“The ZLP, as a coalition platform is pleased to inform that our candidate, Dr Okonkwo, is currently enjoying the solidarity of the highest demography of supporters and volunteers, having established firm affinity with all segments of the voting population across the 326 wards and 21 local government areas in the state.
“Moreover, Ndi Anambra are rallying behind Okonkwo because he is armed with the competence and practical blueprint for massive development of the state.
“In the coming days, the ZLP will commence a vigorous enlightenment campaign ahead of the elections.
“In that regard, the leadership of the party has concluded arrangements to relocate our entire structure, including the national machinery to Anambra state to ensure that nobody robs Ndi Anambra of their desired collective victory with Chief Okonkwo on the platform of the ZLP”, he stated.
