ONITSHA—A governorship aspirant for the forthcoming governorship election in Anambra State, Dr Ifeanyi Ubah, yesterday, faulted the claim by Governor Peter Obi that his government had simultaneously developed all sectors of the state within the past seven years of his administration.
Speaking with newsmen on his ambition at his Nnewi residence, Ubah said the governor’s claim was only achieved on the pages of newspapers, radio and television and not what was really on ground.
Ubah said: “I am in the governorship race because this government is not the type of government that we want in this state.
“What we want is a government that will develop the state in the real sense of the word and not a government of deceit.
“I am offering myself to serve the state, to bring about real development and positive changes”. state.
“There is no proper accountability in the use of state funds. Look at the local government allocation that this government had been collecting since its inception, it will shock you to know that there has been no state audited account for the local governments since 2011 till date”.
Ubah promised to conduct local government election within 90 days in office, if he was given the mandate by the people of the state come 2014.
On his arrest and the charges preferred against him by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission, EFCC, he said it was the handiwork of his business and political enemies who were bent on stopping his political ambition.
“You will agree with me that if I was guilty of all my enemies petitioned against me, I would have not come out to run for the governorship race.
“I have suffered, I have paid the price and I believe that l have won the battle because one with God is majority,” he said.
