Dr. Ifeanyi Ubah, has expressed fear that Anambra State may be hit by earthquake if the government fails to stop indiscriminate sinking of boreholes currently going on. According to
him, the alleged failure of the state government to provide potable water in the face of biting scarcity has forced the residents to sink boreholes at every corner. This, he noted, has exposed the entire geography of the erosion-ravaged state to severe threat of a man-made earthquake.
Ubah gave the warning when he addressed stakeholders at a rally of LP supporters yesterday at the Beverly Hills Hotels, Nnewi, during a meeting to strategise for success of the party’s local council chairmanship and councillorship candidates at the forthcoming council polls.
He emphasised the need for return to basics, pointing out that the electorate had in the past voted parties with all manner of inanimate symbols like cockerel and broom, but have been disappointed many times. Ubah urge them to “make a remarkable difference by voting a party with human symbol so as to have a transparent and accountable leadership.”
The Chairman of the occasion, Chief Dan Ulasi, described Ubah as a humane and courageous fellow who is out to make life more meaningful to the people. He prayed for a landslide victory for the Labour Party.
A member of the Ifeanyi Uba Campaign Organisation, Dr. Emeka Eze, stated that decampees from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) and the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) attended the rally to join the new LP movement driven by Ifeanyi Ubah Foundation.
The rally was also used to kick-off activities of the foundation in the 326 electoral wards in the state.
