Chukwudolue said that the masses in and around Nnewi have really missed the chairman of Capital Oil and Gas who described as God sent.

"It is only Chief Ifeanyi Ubah that has open his gates wide for everybody to come to him for all manner of assistance. Many other affluent personalities in this area are not easily accessible but not Chief Ubah.

"You will not only see him, he will address whatever problem that pursue you to his house and by the time you are coming out of his residence which has become a fortress for the poor and the needy, you will be laughing.

Preacher hails Ifeanyi Ubah's freedom

Onitsha based journalist turned gospel preacher, Theo Rays Ejikeme also hailed the release of the Chairman of Capital Oil and Gas and publisher of Authority newspaper Dr Patrick Ifeanyi from the custody of the Department of State Security (DSS ) describing it as the hand work of God

Rays who has served as correspondent to the Authority newspapers said he has prior to his release initiated a marathon prayer drive involving some other men of God to ask God to intervene on the case between DSS and Ubah and facilitate amicable settlement of the case so that Ubah will regain his freedom and go back to his businesses.

"On Sunday, I mobilized fire brand men of God to pray for God's intervention for the release of Ifeanyi Ubah, and we declared a marathon prayer race at the auditorium of Unifaith Living Church Ogidi, I said we won't stop until he regains his freedom and go back to his businesses, so God has answered our prayer on quick note" the preacher said.

He said that the continued detention of the oil magnet and publisher of Nigeria's fastest growing national daily newspaper is no longer acceptable hence the prayer to God for his freedom, noting that ubah's absent has began to bear negative impact on those who rely on him for sustenance and even survival.

"When you talk about Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah, you are talking about a job provider, a bread winner for many families across Nigeria and oversea countries, a mover of economy of Nigeria and of course a life changer that carries the hope of sustenance and survival of large quantity of the people , so keeping him in detention doesn't work in the best interest of anybody and we are happy for his freedom" he added

A visit to the ever bubbling Nnewi main market by our reporter revealed that many traders were equally excited about the home coming of Chief Ubah who they described as their person.

"When we were having issues in Lagos, it was only Chief Ubah who came to our aid, others pretended as if they don't know what was happening, I know it was because of that singular feat that he was marked by the powers that be in Nigeria but God pass all human powers." Ikechukwu noted.
