I am richer than some Nigerian Governors – Ifeanyi Ubah
The Chairman of Capital Oil and Gas, Ifeanyi Ubah, has stated that his ambition to govern Anambra State was not to enrich his pocket.
He declared that by every standard he was even richer than some serving governors.
Ubah, who spoke with journalists in an interactive session to mark his 45th birthday at his Nnewi home, said his ambition to govern his state was borne out of his conviction to serve his people and not to make money as widely believed by some persons.
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.”
Ubah denied nursing the ambition to contest the governorship election next year, adding that he would support the re-election of the incumbent governor of the state, Chief Willie Obiano.
He, however, said the support would be on the condition that he should be appointed Obiano’s campaign director.
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.”
