Godwin Ezeemo (Progressive People’s Alliance, PPA)
He was Rated 4/10, though his political rally was pretty late.
Osita Chidoka (United Progressive Party, UPP)
The former boss of Nigeria’s road safety agency emerged from this debate with some pride. He was rated 6/10
Willie Obiano (All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA)
The current Governor of Anambra state really talked about infrastructure and the state’s debt profile but we think his saving grace will lie on the strength of his first term performance. He was rated 7/10
Oseloka Obaze (Peoples Democratic Party, PDP)
An eloquent speaker indeed who proved to be a capable pair of hands if given the opportunity. He was rated 9/10
Tony Nwoye (All Progressives Congress, APC)
He sounded like one who will only deliver based on the federal government’s dictates and this made him had a tough time convincing the people owing to the fact that his party had lots of stuff to sort out in the southeast. He was rated 5/10
