Anambra 2021: Ben Etiaba pays courtesy visit to Ezeife ’Okwadike’
Chief Ben Etiaba, Ifennia Nnewi, paid a courtesy visit to Dr. Chukwuemeka Ezeife, “Okwadike Igboukwu”, the first governor of our Anambra State ahead of the state’s 2021 governorship election.
Chief Etiaba is vying for the governorship seat in the state under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), the ruling party at the center.
After the meeting, the governorship aspirant sent the following message to ElombahNews on the outcome of the meeting:
“Governor Ezeife was very pleased that Ben Etiaba took the singular decision to vie for the position of Governor of Anambra State.
“He felt that Etiaba possessed the positive attributes needed towards moving Anambra to the Next Level.”
Regarding a compliment he received from another Anambra stakeholder, Etiaba wrote:
“Last September as I turned 57, the great Patrick Okigbo wrote the following words:
“There are many Nigerians who “know” what the trouble is. There are many more waiting to become governor or president before they start implementing their solutions.”
“There are a few people – a very small group – who know that they do not need a title to solve the problems within their sphere of influence and impact lives.
“Chief Ben Etiaba is a leader in this group. When he sees a problem that need to be solved, he rolls up his sleeves and gets to work. No noise. No fanfare. Just results.”
“Happy birthday, Sir. Ifennia Nnewi, may your light never dim.”
“I stumbled into Patrick’s post once again last night and wanted to share those most humbling words with you.
“In the picture, as part of my political consultations in my run for the office of Governor of Anambra State, I visited H. E. Dr. Chukwuemeka Ezeife ’Okwadike Igboukwu’, the first democratically elected Governor of our dear State.”
