His Excellency, the First Civilian Governor of Anambra State, Dr Chukwuemeka Ezeife, (Okwadike Ndi Igbo) has denied the news going round that he endorsed Mr Valentine Ozigbo, one of the PDP Aspirants who visited him in his house at Abuja. In a statement to clarify the position, Dr Ezeife said that as an Elder Statesman, he can only pray for any one who visits him. That is what he did for Valentine Ozigbo who has also visited him in time past.
“My endorsement of any one aspiring for Anambra State Governorship today, must follow a certain pattern. I have never visited anywhere with any other person than Senator Uche Ekwunife, and I have given my words on her, to her Party, PDP that she is my beloved daughter in whom I am well pleased. I know that Uche has worked very well for the people of Anambra State, especially those she represents at the Senate. She has proven that if given the State to rule, that she will do very well. She remains the only candidate I have endorsed. If people misunderstood Mr Ozigbo’s visit to my place, I will refer them to my Statement when I escourted Senator Uche Ekwunife to PDP and my address to the good people of Anambra South the day she interacted with them.”
“Again, Distinguished Senator Uche Ekwunife is my daughter, I am overwhelmed with her accomplishments so far, and I believe she can govern Anambra State creditably, I have no doubt in my mind.”!
Dr Chukwuemeka Ezeife enjoined Ndi Anambra to be steadfast with Senator Uche Ekwunife, knowing fully well that I have prophesied to her years back, that she will be the first woman to be elected as Governor of in Nigeria because of her dutifulness and commitment to the people, and her numerous accomplishments.
