Five reasons Ifeanyi Ubah can’t govern Anambra State

Ahead of the November 16 governorship polls in Anambra 
State, a socio-political group, Oganiru Anambra, has come 
out with five strong and serious reasons, the Labour Party 
candidate, Ifeanyi Ubah cannot win let alone governor 
Anambra State. 

Below are their reasons and sins of Ubah as stated by 
Chimezie Okonkwo, the leader of the Eastern-based 
association with offices in Lagos and Abuja, respectively.

“Ifeanyi Ubah is a moneybag and not an intellectual
The truth is that politics in Anambra State has gone
 beyond the inglorious era of moneybags with 
questionable sources of wealth ‘ruling’ them. Currently, 
our state, under the able leadership of Governor Peter Obi 
earnestly yearns for true intellectuals to progressively 
govern them. We do not want moneybags throwing cash 
left, right and centre all in the name of inducing and 
manipulating innocent voters.

His fraudulent cases with FG and Coscharis
Either Ubah likes it or not, his well celebrated 
case with Cosmas Maduka, boss of Coscharis Motors, 
who accused Ubah of defrauding him of several billions 
of Naira in an oil deal gone sour, is still fresh in the minds 
of NdiAnambra. We are yet to hear the last from this very 
ugly show of shame involving a man that wants to govern 
our state. Also Ubah’s embarrassing arrest and detention 
for almost two weeks by the Special Fraud Unit (SFU), Ikoyi, 
Lagos over his involvement in the infamous oil subsidy scam, 
is not good for the image of the moneybag that wants to 
govern Anambra. We won’t dwell much on this story 
because it’s an open secret. The truth is that we at Oganiru 
Anambra will not allow a man with such a big stain or dent to 
govern our state. NEVER.

AMCON’s takeover of Capital Oil and Gas
What on earth would make a moneybag that could 
not manage his own company-Capital Oil and Gas 
Industries Limited, think or believe he can successfully 
run and manage the collective wealth of NdiAnambra 
judiciously and prudently?

Ubah should first go sort himself out with AMCON, FG and 
Coscharis before dreaming of governing Anambra. It is no 
longer news that AMCON has taken over the management 
of Capital Oil and Gas due to Ubah’s backlog of debts owed 
several Nigerian banks. And this takeover will last for a period 
of two years. He should think of how to rescue his dwindling 
fortunes instead of wanting to ‘rule’ Anambra by force.

Ubah has no clear or well defined programme and 
policyAmong the leading contenders jostling for the 
soul of Anambra ahead of the November 16 governorship 
race, controversial Ubah is the only candidate without a 
clear and straight programme for NdiAnambra. Ubah should 
know that ‘ruling’ Anambra goes beyond bulldozing and 
bamboozling his way with cash and other material gifts. 
Anambra people are wiser and urgently needs a leader 
with clearly defined programmes and well outlined policies.

Anambra needs a role model as governor and not a controversial 
manWe at Oganiru Anambra strongly believes that NdiAnambra 
a role model, an intellectual and God fearing person as their 
governor and not a controversial businessman lacking in the 
above leadershipqualities. We urgently need a role model with 
an enviable character and strong pedigree in both educational 
and public lives, not a fellow with multiple controversies 
trailing his every move.

NdiAnambra, November 16 is just by the corner, please 
shine your eyes and vote wisely. All true sons and daughters 
of Anambra must make the right choice for a brighter and 
better Anambra.”
