Royal Fathers from the Anambra Central Senatorial Zone, yesterday October 28, 2021, endorsed the governorship candidate of the Action Alliance Congress, AAC, Dr. Chidozie Nwankwo.
Dr. Nwankwo was received by the Traditional Rulers at the palace of His Royal Majesty, Igwe P.N. Anuku, Igwe Mbaukwu. Opening prayers on the occasion were offered by His Royal Majesty, Igwe Ngene, the traditional ruler of Nibo town, who invoked ancestral blessings of the traditional stools upon Dr. Nwankwo.
The traditional breaking of kolanut and the attendant royal blessings upon Dr. Chidozie Nwankwo was conducted by HRM, Igwe R. N. Iloh, the Ise of Nise Ancient Kingdom.
On behalf of the Anambra Central Traditional Rulers Council, the chairman of the Senatorial Council of traditional Rulers, His Royal Highness, Igwe C.N.C. Akwaeze praised Dr. Nwankwo for the activities of his Kingdom Care Foundation, KCF, which has uplifted thousands of people across the 21 LGAs of the state, many years before his present ambition to contest the governorship of the state.
Earlier, HRM Igwe P. N. Anuku, Igwe Mbaukwu had described Dr. Chidozie Nwankwo as a very solid business man, who has invested years of personal success into helping the less privileged. Igwe Anuku alluded to his famed personal relationship with the late Vice President of the Federal Republic, Dr. Alex Ekwueme, who is also from the same town of Oko in Aguata LGA as Dr. Nwankwo. Igwe Anuku promised to give Dr. Nwankwo the same support he gave Dr. Ekwueme.
In his speech, Dr. Chidozie Nwankwo attributed inspiration from God as the only reason why he is offering himself for service. He said that as Governor, he would create a new Anambra State, where he would use his personal experience and success in business to create a new business hub in the state, which will usher in the golden opportunity of economic and industrial transformation, where every Anambra person will have opportunity to become somebody.
With five functional factories built across Nigeria and 5000 people employed in the factories, Dr. Nwankwo said that he is extremely proud that out of the 5000 people employed in his factories, more than 3000 are from Anambra State.
Dr. Nwankwo however insisted that he is not desperate to become governor but only desperate to see imminent changes in Anambra State in particular and Igboland in general. According to him, Anambra State is the responsibility of our time and therefore, all hands must be on deck to ensure, that only the right people with the right experience and financial and managerial acumen will be voted for on November 6, 2021.
Dr. Nwankwo vowed to bring back honesty and integrity into government business if he is elected governor, just as he promised to build industrial parks that would catalyze Anambra’s industrial revolution and transform Anambra State into the Japan of Africa.
Twenty one traditional Rulers from Anambra Central Senatorial Zone attended the event and praying for Dr. Nwankwo’s success on November 6, HRM, Chris Emeka Nna -Egbuna, JP, Iga 11 of Ebenebe, prayed God to make it possible that an accomplished business man, with outstanding milk of human kindness as Dr. Chidozie Nwankwo will become the next governor of Anambra State.
