The chairman of Capital Oil and Gas, Chief Ifeanyi Ubah, at the weekend reeled out condition for which he will work for the Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano in his second term bid in next year’s governorship election.
Addressing journalists at his country home in the commercial city of Nnewi, he said that despite vying for the number one seat during the last governorship election in the state, he may not want a repeat that at the next election.
Ubah said that instead of joining the league of contestants, he would rather support the incumbent governor to get a second term adding that in doing that, there is a price to pay.
The oil magnet, who also celebrated his 45th birthday, said: “I will support the governor only if the governor appoints me as the Director General of his campaign.
“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 today.
“I had the best manifesto to change the fortunes of Anambra as at the time I vied to be governor, but I had to let go because it must not be me.
“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.”
Ubah bragged about developing his community, Umuanuka, Nnewi, single-handedly with improved electricity, which has not failed for the past four years.
He also said that he built good roads in his town and that has led to business boom in the area adding that presently, the four kilometres stretch of roads which he connected to his personal electricity grid has caused over 600 new businesses to spring in the area, causing it to be the new hub of business in Nnewi.
“The governor needs people like me who will look him in the face and tell him the truth at all time,” he stated.
