Valentine Ozigbo, a leading gubernatorial aspirant in Anambra State, has declared that the time for the restoration of Anambra’s greatness has come as he made a case for his candidacy based on his wide experience and exposure in business and leadership.

Mr Ozigbo made the assertion on Monday, February 1, 2021, when he visited Anaocha constituency as part of his ongoing tour of the 30 constituencies in the state. 

While speaking at the event that was hosted at the residence of Chief Onyeanwuna Ezeani in Agulu, Ozigbo emphasized that the people of Anambra should not repeat the recent past mistakes, stressing that they must insist on character and competence as against nepotism and decisions which are driven by sentiments.  

Ozigbo, who is running for governorship on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), said Anambra needs a governor who can mobilize manpower and resources needed to rapidly develop the state.  

“We have lost ground on our contemporaries in terms of sustainable development goals and the time for restoration is now,” Ozigbo declared. 


“We are a state blessed with numerous businessmen. To create an enabling environment, we must fix our port system. We should look to exploring the natural gas potentials of Anambra State. I have rich experience in the power sector, and we all know that power is key to the industrialization of Anambra State.

 

“I have experience in hospitality, banking, finance, administration, sports, entertainment, agriculture, oil and gas, and power. All these are key sectors that cumulatively reflect what we lack as a people. 


"I bring a rare combination of a multi-disciplinary and multi-dimensional experience and exposure in leadership, and I believe I am highly equipped for the role of governor. I present myself for the leadership of Anambra State to bring our lofty dreams to life,” Ozigbo added.


Ozigbo, who is the immediate past President and Group CEO of Transcorp Plc, went on to appreciate the people of Anaocha for their staunch support since the inception of the #KaAnambraChawapu project. 


The respected business leader publicly appreciated several stakeholders from the constituency who have been instrumental to the progress of his governorship so far. 


The stakeholders include the Deputy Minority Leader of the Anambra State House of Assembly, Ebele Ejiofor; a former PDP chairman in Anaocha LGA, Ifeanyi Orji; a consultant to the National Assembly, CY Udoh; a former House of Assembly candidate, Honourable John Nnoli; a former Special Assistant to the Anambra State Governor, Chris Chukwelu; a former Special Adviser to the Commissioner of Works, Mike-Joe Onwudinjo; a popular women mobilizer in the constituency, Dr. Mrs. Vivian Mgbaefulike; the coordinator of the VCO project in Anaocha Local Government, Jude Okafor and stakeholders like Paulinus Anagboso, Adol Ezeora and Hyginus Ezeanolue. 


Ozigbo, a prominent Nigerian philanthropist and founder of the Valentine Chineto Ozigbo Foundation, also distributed bags of rice and other souvenirs to attendees at the visit. 


Former Anambra State Commissioner of Information, Chief Joe-Martins Uzodike was present and admonished the gathering on the importance of prioritizing competent leaders. 


Ozigbo was accompanied on the tour by senior members of his campaign organization, including a former member of the Anambra State House of Assembly, Honorable Tim Egboka; a former Speaker of the Anambra State of Assembly and a two-time member of the Federal House of Representatives, Honorable Eucharia Azodo; a former women leader of the PDP in Anambra State, Dame Love Ebeh. 


Others include PDP stalwart, Chief Tony Offiah; Honourable Peter Umeonwuka; State Secretary of the Valentine Chineto Ozigbo Youth Movement, Comrade Frank Ekpeha O., and the women leader of the Valentine Chineto Ozigbo Youth Movement, Mrs. Oby Mezi.
