Dr Godwin Maduka told Ndi Anambra resident in Asaba, Delta State, during his visit to the state, that he stood out among other contestants in the race, being the only person with the capacity to turn Anambra into Dubai, infrastructure-wise, the only man who will make Anambra the medical tourist centre in Africa, the only man who will bring intellectual respect to Nigerians if elected.
He promised that, if elected, within the first 100 days of his administration, he will rebrand the present airport into international standards and fix the Onitsha–Enugu road.
Maduka boasted that he will collaborate with the Federal Government to dredge the River Niger, all the way to the Atlantic Ocean, to facilitate maritime business.
“We need a new change and a new face in Anambra, and I represent that new face. I have contributed over $500 million to the state’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
“I would not be here if I had seen any alternative among my co-contestants. They are all good in different things, but for the governance of Anambra. I am the only one who can do it because I have the records that no one else has, and they all know it.
I will fix Anambra in every aspect because I have done it before,” he stated.
He asked the youths and other stakeholders to allow the election to hold. “Time is not on our side. We don’t want to lose this opportunity because I have what it takes to help my people cross the bridge,” he added.
