The President of Transnational Corporation of Nigeria Plc, Chief Valentine Ozigbo, over the weekend, commences consultation with the Anambra state working committee (SWC) and State Executive Committee (SEC) of the People’s Democratic Party, (PDP) led by its state chairman, Chief Ndubuisi Nwobu, on his ambition to take over from governor Willie Obiano of the APGA, whose second term is expected to end March 2022.
Chief Ozigbo who met differently with the SWC and SEC at the party Secretariat Udoka, Awka on the invitation of the state working Committee to converse on his commitment and interest in becoming the next Anambra state Governor under its platform, satisfied their curiosity.
State Chairman of the Anambra PDP, Chief Ndubuisi Nwobu expressed that Chief Valentine Ozigbo is eminently qualified to govern Anambra state with his rich resume both in academic and work experiences.
During the meeting, he reassured that the party would conduct a free and fair primary to select a candidate that would unify the party. He also noted that the Aspirants in the party would address the members of the party, particularly delegates, to have an informed opinion before the primary election.
Nwobu noted that Ozigbo attracted the largest members of the party to his consultation, an indication that he is generally accepted.
In a brief interview with journalists, Ozigbo explained that he had continued to consult with his people and the PDP members at all levels to enable him to tidy up his services as CEO of a conglomerate before jumping into politics. He reassured them that at the appropriate time he would make his official declaration known after the ongoing consultations.
He, however, reiterated that he was 100 per cent ready to serve Anambra state as Governor under the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and would make his declaration at the appropriate time.
He informed that his successes recorded in Transcorp in its various sectors, Energy, hospitality and power will be translated into the growth of Anambra State. Galvanizing the billionaires from Anambra state for the common good of the state is also top on his list.
