The PPA gubernatorial candidate in the forthcoming Anambra governorship election, Mr Godwin Chukwunaenye Ezeemo, has revealed that he has sponsored several politicians in the past but that he was disappointed by all of them given their inordinate selfishness at the expense of Anambra people.
Speaking during a recent live facebook interview, Ezeemo, who said he never intended to dabble into politics directly, said that the current Minister of Labour, Dr. Chris Ngige just like other politicians he sponsored, was more concerned with climbing the political ladder than providing sincere leadership to his people.
In his words, “I could not understand why these people were not ready to make the necessary sacrifice required for our socio-political cum economic society work just as has been done by people in the developed world in the past. I therefore decided that if a society that works is to be, it is up to me.”
Ezeemo said that it was at this point that he moved back to Nigeria and established his business headquarters in his hometown, Umuchu, resolved that he would spend the rest of his life in his place of birth fighting tooth and nail to get it to be the greener pasture Anambra youths dying daily in the Sahara desert are in search of.
The PPA National leader also said that he was the one that single handedly funded the establishment of All Progressive Congress, APC, in Anambra State only to be edged out by the cabal through the instrumentality of Ngige due to their undemocratic practices.
“I left APC because they lacked internal democracy and decided to start from the scratch and nurture PPA to be distinctive, with clear-cut ideology,” he said.
It would be recalled that the National Chairman of PPA, Chief Peter Ameh, during the flag-off the 2017 PPA gubernatorial campaign told the press that Godwin Ezeemo has impacted his life positively more than Orji Uzor Kalu and other politicians he had worked with in the past, and has given PPA an ideology making it more of a political movement.
His words read thus in part, “PPA is not just a political party but a political movement, all thanks to Godwin Ezeemo who has greatly influenced and impacted the party since he became its leader; we share ideas in place of money, commitment in place of thuggery and love for the people in place of forceful bargaining.”
