The Chairman of Capital Oil and Gas, Mr. Ifeanyi Ubah, has said his desire to govern Anambra State is not to make money.


He said he was richer by every standard than some state governors.

Ubah said his ambition to govern his state was borne out of his conviction that he could better the lots of the people.

He said, “I am blessed in every ramification. If not for the love I have for Anambra, I should not have any reason to aspire to be governor, because there is nothing a governor enjoys that I do not enjoy.

“I had the best manifesto to change the fortunes of Anambra people when I aspired in 2013 to be a governor, but I had to let go because it must not be me.”

He said he had no plans to vie for the position of the governor in the state next.

He gave conditions under which he would support the re-election of the incumbent governor of the state, Chief Willie Obiano, which he said would include appointing him (Ubah) Obiano’s campaign director.

Ubah spoke with journalists in an interactive session to mark his 45th birthday at his Nnewi home.

He said, “So far, the governor is doing well, and I will support him, but we must think beyond our selfish interests. We must reject a situation where one man finishes his tenure and takes his stooge and puts him as governor.”

  2. There is no business man that comes into politics without a mind of making more money either directly or indirectly. Nigerians have gone beyond the days of following people dogmatically. One thing is to present a good manifesto, and another thing is implementation. If you really have the interest of Anambra State at heart, there are many things you can put in place to better the lives of Anambra indigenes without being the governor.
