Anambra 2021 Election : Names Of 12 Aspirants Gunning For PDP Ticket

Twelve persons have declared interest in the November 2021 governorship election in Anambra State.
They include airline operator, Dr. Obiorah Okonkwo, United States of America – based surgeon, Dr. Godwin Maduka, House of Representatives member, Mr. Chris Azubogu, Senator Uche Ekwunife, Emeka Etiaba, Dr. Harry Oranezi, Dr. Ifedi Okwenna, Mr. Godwin Ezeemo, Chuma Nzeribe, Mr. Val Ozigbo, Uche Oligbo and Ugochukwu Okeke.
There are indications that more people would join the race in the next few months.
Anambra State chairman of PDP, Chief Ndubuisi Nwobu told reporters in Awka Tuesday that the party would give all of them equal opportunity during the primaries for the selection of the party’s flag bearer.
According to him, unlike what used to be the situation during previous elections, the state executive committee would not allow anybody, no matter how highly placed, to interfere in the selection process.
He observed that it was such meddlesomeness by people who claimed to be stakeholders that caused the defeat of PDP in the previous governorship elections in the state.
Nwobu said the party would avoid anything that could lead to rancour because PDP was determined to take over Anambra State to return the state to the path of progress.
He regretted that Anambra, which was debt-free before the emergence of the present administration, has been ranked among the highest debtor states in the country, adding that the people would no longer tolerate such a situation.

images 19 3 Petrol supply fell by 23.88% in July, says NNPC

The volume of petrol supplied in the country declined by 23 .88 per cent in July to 1 . 02 billion litres, according to the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation.
The NNPC said the 1 .02 billion litres translated to 32 .95 million litres per day , down from 44. 62 million litres per day in June , when 1 .34 billion litres were supplied .
Data obtained from the corporation showed that 0 . 95 billion litres ( 30 . 67 million litres/day) were supplied in May and 0 . 94 billion litres ( 31 .37 million litres/day ) in April.
The Federal Government imposed a lockdown on the Federal Capital Territory , Lagos and Ogun states on March 30 but a gradual easing of the lockdown began on May 4 .
In March and February , the volume of petrol supplied stood at 1 .73 billion ( 59. 72 million litres/day) , up from 1 .20 billion litres in January ( 38. 68 million litres/day)
“ The corporation has continued to diligently monitor the daily stock of Premium Motor Spirit to achieve smooth distribution of petroleum products and zero fuel queue across the nation , ” the NNPC said in its latest monthly report .
Agusto & Co , in a recent report , noted that the impact of the COVID – 19 pandemic on economic activities in the country resulted in a decline in the consumption of petroleum products .
The report said , “ Agusto & Co . expects the consumption of petroleum products , particularly PMS and Aviation Turbine Kerosene , to decline to 27. 2 billion litres in 2020 given the severely restricted travel and transportation activities during the second and third quarters of the year .
“ This is expected to translate to a decline in revenue to N4 . 3tn in 2020 .”
Nigeria , Africa ’s largest oil producer , relies largely on importation for petrol and other refined products as its refineries have remained in a state of disrepair for many years .
The NNPC has , until recently , been the sole importer of petrol into the country for more than two years , after private oil marketers stopped importing the commodity due to crude price fluctuations, among other issues .
The refineries , located in Port Harcourt , Kaduna and Warri , have a combined installed capacity of 445, 000 barrels per day but have continued to operate far below the installed capacity .
Under the Direct Sale Direct Purchase scheme , selected overseas refiners, trading companies and indigenous companies are allocated crude supplies in exchange for the delivery of an equal value of petrol and other refined products to the NNPC .
