As the political space in Anambra State begins to heat up with campaigns for the November 6, 2021 governorship election, the electorate have been advised to put aside sentiments and emotions to be able to elect a credible leader.

The Anglican Bishop of Amichi Diocese, the Most Reverend Ephraim Ikeakor, made the call while speaking with Radio Nigeria Correspondent in Abatete, Idemili North Local Government Area.

According to Bishop Ikeakor, all the complaints about bad governance and leadership both at the federal and the state levels, emanate from the choice made by the electorate.

Bishop Ikeakor called on the people to look out for a leader with empathy for the masses and with sustainable vision.

The Anglican Bishop said Anambra State at the moment needed someone that would take leadership down to the grassroots and identify with the poor.

He enjoined the electorate to shun denominationalism and sentiments but look at the qualities and virtues of the candidates that would emerge from various political parties after the primaries.

Bishop Ikeakor said the Federal Government and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had an important role to play by giving the contenders a level playing ground without any imposition of candidate or federal might against the wish of the people.
