2023: Beware of godfathers – APC guber candidate, Nnaji tells voters

The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Enugu state in 2023, Chief Uchenna Nnaji, has advised Enugu electorates to be wary of candidates with godfathers.

Nnaji made the declaration, weekend, while presenting his programme before the Enugu Business Community under the aegis of Enugu Chamber of Commerce Mines and Agriculture (ECCIMA) and the Enugu Coalition for Business and Professional Association (ECOBA),

He declared that he is the only candidate running without a godfather.

He said, “I’m the only guber candidate in this election without a godfather. But God and the people of Enugu State are my godfathers,” he said.

The APC candidate, who announced that if elected, his administration would establish Enugu State Development Bank with a capital base of N250 billion, explained that “Government will own 10% equity in the Development bank while the people of Enugu state and other private investors will own 90% of equity.”

“Any business we invest in, we do so with the private sector by investing 10% but when the business begins to do well, we will divest and move into another business,” he said.

Nnaji, described himself as a complete “Enugu boy”, having done his primary, secondary and university education (University of Nigeria Nsukka, UNN) in the State before venturing out for business.

“I’m the only businessman in this contest; I started my business from scratch, without using government funds. Business is meant to grow from one level to another.

“PDP candidate (Peter Mbah) is not a businessman, he did not grow in business, he only ‘jammed money’ and started oil marketing,” Nnaji claimed.
