Voters In Anambra State Have Restored The Glory Of Ndigbo Not To Bow To Any Threats

The famous Anambra spirit of never say die was on full display on Saturday, November 6, 2021. Gallant Ndi Anambra did two fascinating things: one, they bought into Charles Soludo's grand vision of transforming Anambra into a liveable and prosperous smart megacity, and two, they stopped the rampaging renegades from conquering Igbo land for their paymasters.

Yes, the election was consequential because taking over Anambra State is analogous to taking over the entire Igbo land. Their sponsored mission was to destroy the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), the fledging political vehicle with which Ndigbo can deploy to negotiate their place in Nigeria. Notwithstanding the security challenges, the massive inducements by the renegades, and the frustratingly slow INEC process, they patiently persevered to vote for their right candidates.

There were instances where wives defied their husbands and voted for their candidates, daughters and sons looked at their fathers or mothers eyeball to eyeball and said ‘NO’ to go with the threats from the enemies of the people. By their actions, they truly demonstrated the spirit of Alaigbo. Brothers and sisters in the other Igbo states and indeed all over the world are cheering for this feat, which is psychologically uplifting. They have tamed the roaring lions and won't begrudge them if they take the glory. What a sweet victory against the deviants.

The fight to restore the respect and dignity of Ndigbo was ferocious but was won by a marketable candidate, dogged and vigilant electorate, and an improved technology deployed by the electoral body. The times have changed, regarding both the electoral process and the voters' behavior and habits. The reality is that whoever wins the election should give the rest of the candidates a soft landing so they can join him in making Anambra the preferred place to live happily, learn happily, work happily, invest happily, and enjoy happily. Congratulations to all of the people who stood up to be counted for the sweet victory.
