Billionaire Ifeanyi Ubah: I’m richer than some state governors

The Chairman of Capital Oil and Gas, Mr. Ifeanyi Ubah, has said his desire to govern Anambra State is not to make money. He said he was richer by every standard than some state governors.

He said his ambition to govern his state was borne out of his conviction that he could better the lots of the people. His words:

"I am blessed in every ramification. If not for the love I have for Anambra, I should not have any reason to aspire to be governor, because there is nothing a governor enjoys that I do not enjoy.

“I had the best manifesto to change the fortunes of Anambra people when I aspired in 2013 to be a governor, but I had to let go because it must not be me.”

Ubah spoke with journalists in an interactive session to mark his 45th birthday at his Nnewi home.

He said, “So far, the governor is doing well, and I will support him, but we must think beyond our selfish interests. We must reject a situation where one man finishes his tenure and takes his stooge and puts him as governor.”
