Like her or not, one thing no one can take away from Honourable Uche Ekwunife is her ability to whether the odds. In 2011, the stylish woman was involved in a horrific episode, which had her denying that she was one of the people in an alleged sex tape.
Also in 2011, the Enugu Court of Appeal removed her and ordered fresh elections, which she won, showing for a second time that she was the candidate to beat. However, the woman representing Aniocha/Njikoka/Dunukofia Federal Constituency did not miss her steps during her travails.
Last year, she led her colleagues from Anambra State in a solemn procession in respect for the late Biafran warlord, Dim Chukwuemeka Ojukwu in the green chambers.
The procession, which was joined by a number of other legislators from the South East, earned the mourners a standing ovation. The fact that Ekwunife was appointed spokesperson of the group did not go unnoticed by observers who have hailed her ability to stay relevant in the scheme of things.
The latest effort that has made the lawmaker a topic in the corridors of power is the fact that she has emerged a front-runner in the Anambra gubernatorial race. The vivacious politician has continued to tell her supporters and naysayers alike that she is in the race for real.
