Oil magnate, Ifeanyi Ubah, has said he will contest the Anambra State governorship election next year.
“I still want to be Anambra State governor,” Ubah said while interacting with journalists in his Nnewi hometown, on Friday.
The Peoples Democratic Party member, who contested the Anambra State governorship election on the platform of the Labour Party in 2013, said his failure at the polls three years ago was a huge loss to the people of the state.
He said that he remained a man with a great passion for his people.
He said that if given the opportunity, he would transform the state the way he had done to his business and his Otolo community of Nnewi.
He said his interest in politics was fired by the passion to empower the youths through employments and entrepreneurial mentorship.
Ubah said, “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.”
