Ifeanyi Ubah explains why he is in the governorship race of Anambra state

www.odogwublog.com reports that the Chairman of the Capital Oil and Gas Industries Limited, Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah, has said that his aim of entering into politics, especially the governorship race in Anambra State, is to positively impact on the lives of the populace.
Ubah is seen now to have defected to the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC).
    Ubah, who was addressing APC stakeholders, market executives and his teeming supporters weekend at his Umuanuka country home in Nnewi, Anambra State, said that God has blessed him and that he is seeking political power to be able to work for Anambra people.
    According to him: “We are into politics to rebuild Anambra State. There is nothing I need as an individual that I have not got. I am contented materially, and my aim of joining politics is to help change the face of Anambra State and its people.
    “Leadership of a state like Anambra is not just for anybody. It is for people that have track records, and people that have the capacity and vision.
    “Capital Oil and Gas Industries is the biggest of its kind in the oil and gas sector in Nigeria today. Capital Oil alone contributes to over 45% of the total oil and gas sold in the Nigerian markets every day. This is built through our vision; and it is our intention to replicate this feat in Anambra and to make the state a business hub with opportunities for prosperity”.
    He said that the present economic crisis hitting Nigeria is not the fault of the federal government but the inability of state governors to harness business and economic opportunities and create wealth for their states.
    According to him, “Ndigbo have conquered Nigeria economically but state governors in the Igbo nation have failed to utilize opportunities available to them to create wealth for their states.
    “Anambra, for instance, has continued to go down economically, instead of moving up; because we have bad economic managers. There is no nation that is so blessed with business opportunities than the Igbo people, and Anambra in particular. But Anambra cannot sustain the business spirit because the state has no support from government.
    “So, it is our plan to resurrect the business spirit among Anambra people by supporting business men and women in the state”, he said.
    On his decision to run under the platform of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Ubah said that Anambra needs to belong to the government at the centre so as to be able to negotiate certain things that the state cannot afford to do on its own such as airport, seaport, and a whole lot of things.
