Anambra 2025: I need 1 term to change Anambra governance narrative, says Sen. Ubah



Sen. Ifeanyi Ubah, member representing Anambra South in the National Assembly has called on the people of Anambra to give him their mandate in the 2025 governorship election to enable him address the state’s leadership questions.

Ubah, All Progressive Congress (APC) who spoke to journalists in Nnewi on Sunday said was asking for just a term of four years.

He said he would conduct Local Government Area election within four months of election to encourage political participation at the grassroots and make LGA funds available for competitive and decentralised development.

He said local government elections would also unbundle the state government, make local government funds available to them and shift development to grassroots while the state exercise supervisory role over them.

“All I ask for is one term of four years, I promise to conduct Local Government Area election within four months of election.

“At the moment, I rate governance in Anambra for the past 18 years at 20 percent, I will bring 80 percent content that has never been discussed in governance.

“I have a burning desire to contest the next governorship election in Anambra because this government and those before it has not been able to put the state in the development trajectory that our people desire.

“We have a need to create support for our commerce, we have to develop our sector to make it a hub for health tourists and we have to accelerate community development through local government elections.

“Voting people with over over-bloated personality and structure has failed us, it time we vote for people with passion, people with a track record, that is who I represent, I am prepared to change the narrative, that is why my manifesto has remained the same from 2013 till date,” he said.

Ubah said he had the electoral wrest power from the ruling All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) having won Senate seat two consecutive times on the platform of Young Progressives Party, a minority party.

He described the faceoff between the Prof. Chukwuma Soludo government and traditional rulers in Anambra following conferment of Chieftaincy title on him as unfortunate and unnecessary.

“I felt bad about it, it is a debt in our traditional institution, I strongly believe that those who championed that did not know what they did. Thank God it has been revered though without apology to me,” he said.
