He maintained that he had widows foundation” Edward Ibuzo Widows Foundation” and it is still in our heart, so I called them here today to celebrate easter together and to share love, honestly speaking, i derived eternal joy doing all these charity work all the time.

“As easter celebration reminds us of the death of Gods only begotten son, the time to show love, I didn’t plan for this, I just woke up days ago, something in me told me gratitude, gratitude, gratitude.

“I contested for house of representative but as God wants it, I couldn’t be there, apart from that, there are other things to be grateful for, health, safety, when you see all these things that is happening today, you will know that it is only by His Grace” he said.

” i did it low key, these widows were selected from the 32 wards in Onitsha North/South with each #15,000 against my earlier plan of #20,000 each for 21 wards, if God supports, I need to be doing it every weekend, the message is clear, to share love not political.

On Nigerian politics, he frowned at the way politics are being played here in Nigeria, stated that” You may not see this face again contesting in whatever, I’m saying on probability, if only the people you want to represent understand that word “politics and mean politics, that is the time Liver to Deliver will come out.

” But if it is to pay money to get ticket or pay money to be voted for, count me out of politics because sometimes people believe that you have an intention, my intention is to love, nothing more, nothing less, from now, if you have anything to do with me, see me as a normal person in the street or former House member.

” God have never disappointed me right from my Junior Secondary 3 when I lost my dad, I knelt at the Altar, before a crucifix and told God that I don’t doubt him, but for the fact you have taken my earthly father, I take you as my Eternal Father and since them, he have not disappointed me, all I have to say is Thank You Jesus”.
