The federal House member representing Nnewi North, Nnewi South and Ekwusigo federal constituency, cum governorship aspirant for Anambra 2021, Engr. Chris Emeka Azubogu penultimate week officially notified People Democratic party (PDP) Anambra chapter of his genuine intention to contest for the governorship of Anambra state.
Speaking during the declaration, Engr Azubogu disclosed that
he has carefully observed the State and nation, stating that he is convinced , within all indices of self- appraisal, that he has enough tools within his God given abilities to make positive changes in Anambra state.
Showcasing his blue print, he said that due attention will be accorded to quality and affordable health care, bridging infrastructural gaps, industrialization drive, effective exploitation and harnessing of our huge potentials in the gas infrastructure, arresting our very challenging environmental degradation, evolving business- friendly policies, effectively harnessing our agricultural potentials, poverty alleviation through youth and women empowerment.
He further disclosed that he has a blue print which will add to cutting costs, maximization of opportunities and making use of his ample knowledge in effective fund policing.
The lawmaker expressed worries that while the state’s debt profile is rising, the uncertainty presented by Covid19 pandemic will also make dependency on federal allocations from FAAC a very dangerous approach.
” The grim reality is that our dear state may be hard hit, but that will only happen if we do not hit the ground running with effective utilization of the incredible human resources we are blessed with. Accomplishing these enormous tasks will not come easy and therefore requires someone already versed in the rudiments of public sector governance of which I am equal to the task”, he stated.
