I’ll contest Anambra guber election –Ifeanyi Ubah

…Says Gov Okorocha has failed Imo natives


Oil tycoon, Chief Ifeanyi Ubah, has formally declared intension to contest for the Anambra State governorship election, assuring natives of the state that he would restore the pride of the state with industries, networked security system and employment to engage the youths meaningfully.

Ubah, who made the formal declaration when he hosted Ikoro, the umbrella association for all practicing Igbo journalists in the FCT, Abuja on Wednesday, lamented the spate of insecurity in the state, stressing that kidnapping had become a viable industry for the unemployed youths.

Recounting his ordeals in hands of the government of Anambra State, the oil magnate boasted that considering the lives he had touched in the state, he had no fears of winning landslide in a free and fair election, adding that he would no longer play from the sideline. His words: “I want to officially announce to you, for the first time, that Ifeanyi Ubah wants to contest for the governor of Anambra State.

I want it to be on record that I made this official declaration to contest during this meeting with Ikoro, an umbrella association for all the practicing Igbo journalists in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

“I want to make it clear that I’m not seeking to become the governor of Anambra State because of selfish enrichment but to build industries, provide employment to our discouraged youths that are joining kidnapping in droves out of hopelessness. “I will concentrate on security to curtail the spate of kidnapping in the state. I will network security to reduce crime in the state to zero level.

I want to provide employment by building industries. I have plans of building at least 50 factories across all the local government areas.

Education and healthcare are also among the things I would focus on,” he said. Speaking further, he noted: “We have begun our sensitisation campaign. I want to appeal to the media to urge the government of Anambra State to leave me alone.

I’m very sure that if there is a free and fair election in Anambra State, I will win landslide with at least 70 percent of the votes. But the campaign of calumny was to turn the good people of the state against me. “I thought the battle was over until recently when my sister wedded in Lagos a forthnight ago. 24 out of the 30 House of Assembly members attended.

It was a record in the history of the honourable members attending a function. 61 Igwes, 107 town union presidents and uncountable number of traders in Anambra and environs equally attended. “However, government has declared war against those that attended the wedding in Lagos. During the recent summit of the Anambra State Igwes, government disgraced them, ordering the 61 of them that attended the wedding to stand up and return the money I gave to them.

It was embarrassing and humiliating, especially to some of them that have been on the thrown for 63 years. “However, the government that embarrassed the Igwes did not inform them that I equally gave them money when I invited them to Lagos to see the type of business I’m into.

They accused the Igwes of not taking permission from President Goodluck Jonathan before attending the wedding in Lagos but they did not equally take permission when they did the same journey,” he noted.

Ubah equally used the opportunity to express disappointment over the level of progress the Governor of Imo State, Chief Rochas Okorocha, has made, stressing that his government had disappointed the Imo natives that voted him. “The governor of Imo State has not done well in improving the lives of the indigenes.

Although I supported him in everything during his campaign, which he even acknowledged during his swearing-in, he has not really impressed me. The good thing is that I never asked for contract from him,” he quipped.

    At least we are going to have a comedy of an election – Vote for the clown team of Victor Ume and Ifeanyi Uba. I love Anambra State politics. You may call it anything you want but never call it boring.

    Participatory Democra -y allows every Naiga, the freedom to aspire to the highest Political office in the Country, except the corrupt& ex-convicts,though in Naiga,where the rules are often bent to accomodate all charac -ters.Mr Uba & other Anambrians are free to declared thier intensions,but must never direct/indirectly ,byselfs’agents or praise Singers over heat the existing,peac eful atmosphere in Anambra State.Finally with the epoch high court Judgement whic h have recognized Chief Victor Umeh as the undisputed Nation -al Chairman of APGA. I wish to call on all Anambrarians,irrespe -ctive of the rules,one might have played during the externally sponsored crisis in the Party,to rally round Chief Umeh & all the Party leaders, to restore the confidence of Ndi-Igbo in APGA as the party to Liberate the maginalized citize ns of the Ndi-Igbo,nay Nigerians from the iro n grip of the Corrupt, & recircled politicians /Children who have held Nigerians hostag e,since the Independe nce of Nigeria.Umu Anambra kwadonu Chief Umeh,Governor Okwute Obi,Governor Owelle Rochas Okoro cha,and all commited leaders of APGA in their quest to reallign the Party with the Progressive to liberat e Nigeian masses frm bad & corrupt leaders. Umu Nnem Biko Nu Kwadonu Nde-APGA Ka Ayi We Melie Ndi-ILo Na Oge Election Governor Anambra State.

      Must you insult b4 u are noticed, Ifeanyi Ubah is free to express his satisfaction/disapointment anywhere in Naija as a senior citizen

    Obviously, the ambition of Ifeanyi Uba to govern Anambra state is driving him crazy. I wonder what the performance of Okorocha’s administration in Imo state has got to do with Ifeanyi Uba becoming a governor in Anambra state, must Uba criticize a governor of another state to realise his own dream. He is only telling people that he is still a baby politician.
    I think he needs a political adviser to be matured in this game, and also associate with great minds, so that he will not end up shooting himself on the leg.
    If he is hoping and depending in his money alone, he might not make it to government house Awka, because he will make more enemies than friends. He will do this, he will do that, it’s not a new promise to the people of Anambra state. The people have been hearing these promises right from second republic. Why I am saying this is because Uba will never spend or use his personal money to run the affairs of Anambrb state, if given the chance as a governor.
    Therefore, we should note that the problem of Anambra people is not really the government of Anambra state, but Abuja’s unitary system of federalism with harsh policies mostly targeted on Ndigbo, which is not practiced in any part of the world.
    So, Ifeanyi Uba should be agitating for a national conference which will go a long way to better the lives of his people of Anambra state.
    Because what Abuja is giving Anambra state today can’t solve 20% of Anambra’s total problems.
    Uba should make a wild consultation, if he wants to be relevant in Anambra in particular and Nigeria at large.

    If God has destined u 4 d seat, then it wil definitely becm urs. Jst play ur card wel nd stop criticizing odas!! Bst wishes @Ifeanyi Ubah

    Chief Dr. Ifeanyi Ubah as the governor of Anambra state is one of the best thing that would happen to Anambra state. The is a God sent man to transform Anambra state into a first world. Everything he does is of international standard. He is a hard working man, a philantropist, and a great leader not a career politician. Anambrarians are solidly behind him. We should cast our vote for him and defend our vote. Vox populi, vox Dei- the voice of the people is the voice of God.
