The Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of Capital Oil and Gas Limited, Chief Ifeanyi Ubah, has declared interest in the governorship election of Anambra State slated for next year.
Ubah, who made this known at a parley with journalists on Friday in his hometown of Nnewi, said “I still want to be Anambra State governor”.
The oil magnate was the Labour Party candidate in the 2013 governorship election in the state in which he came fourth with 37,495 votes.
He, however, said his defeat at the polls three years ago was a huge loss to the people of the state, stressing that he remained a man with a great passion for his people.
The billionaire entrepreneur, who is now a member of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, said that if given the opportunity, he would transform Anambra the same way he had done to his business and his Otolo community of Nnewi.
Mr. Ubah pointed out that his interest in politics was fueled by the passion to empower the youths through employment and entrepreneurial mentorship.
According to him, “Losing the Anambra State governorship contest was not easy but I think my people are the greater losers because I have great things in mind for them and I am still interested in that seat.
“I am highly passionate about Anambra and I want to see it transformed”.
