I am here for Prof. CEE CEE Soludo. Let’s please be honest with our assessment because Anambra State belongs to our Children.
From Chidi Odinkalu to Everyone: 06:33 PM
I really expect Igbo people to do better in pronouncing Igbo names. The rest of Nigeria does a good enough job of massacring our Igbo names. We can’t be in the business of helping them in that. It’s disappointing
From Dr. Obiefuna to Everyone: 06:34 PM
In terms of?
From Obiajulu to Everyone: 06:37 PM
what made you to say that Soludo is the most qualified?
ask him what made Soludo more qualified?
From Chidi Odinkalu to Everyone: 06:37 PM
Buhari has scandalised the notion of “next level”. Soludo is not doing any “next level” biko. He will do different
From Emmanuel Nwosu to Everyone: 06:39 PM
Emeka Okpala has said it all. We can’t continue in the same mundane rhetoric of construction of roads.
We must not surrender our sovereignty to political merchants deceiving people with fake projects like funny road construction etc.
From MSG Okwunna to Everyone: 06:40 PM
Then I think Soludo should go for President instead of governor, since most of his past works is nation based
From Obiajulu to Everyone: 06:40 PM
Emeka opala, tell us in specifics what made Soludo better. not mentioning “economist”, he’s “prof”
From Emmanuel Nwosu to Everyone: 06:40 PM
We need someone who can link international economic network to transform Anambra State into a global economic hub which will immediately snowball into massive job availability for our people.
From Obiajulu to Everyone: 06:41 PM
i think Soludo and Ifeanyi Uba are in the same plane
From MSG Okwunna to Everyone: 06:42 PM

From Anyaora Lucy to Everyone: 06:42 PM
Ifeanyi Ubah did not dump any party please
From Chinedu Obiefuna to Everyone: 06:44 PM
I think we should focus on the expectations instead of addressing individual capacities. We really don’t know their abilities and what they can actually do when elected
From Chukwujekwe Miracle to Everyone: 06:45 PM
Distinguished Senator Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah didn’t dump any party, he’s still in YPP and 100% ready to deliver through YPP.

From Chidi Odinkalu to Everyone: 06:57 PM
1 thing we do in Nigeria is hold forth on things that we know very little of, claiming voodoo as fact.
From Chigozie Igbo to Everyone: 06:58 PM
Why does he want to mend what was not broken?
From Hon Kizito Ikenna to Everyone: 06:58 PM
Hospitals in America how many in Anambra? Yes and I so respond this: I am sure that you have not visited Umuchukwu to witness a skyscraper 17 storey building meant for Specialized Medical Care of all those ailments which takes abroad even President of this nation till today for medical tourism. And this billion dollars investment is aimed at correcting that impression and putting to an end the continued medical tourism overseas by the few privilleged few with tax payers money.
From David-Chyddy Eleke to Everyone: 06:58 PM
Hmmmm! Soludo must be very influential in this race. Attacks everywhere.

From Chijioke Ikokwu to Everyone: 07:00 PM
Please this conversation is highly commended and should be sustained
19:01:26 From David-Chyddy Eleke : @Chigozie, and who said an incumbent can’t bring in a successor?
19:02:16 From Chigozie Igbo : Please don’t talk about the Hospitals, that Ndi Anambra has not benefited from in any way.
19:02:44 From Emmanuel Nwosu : Bikonu ka anyi suba Igbo oo
19:02:54 From Hon Kizito Ikenna : Sorry gentlemen I have to take my leave for another important meeting too. I would appreciate to continue with this program the next time it’s coming up.
Hon Kizito Ikenna
God bless you
19:03:14 From Chigozie Igbo : @ David. It will be very hard for Obiano to do this. infact it’s near impossible
19:03:28 From Ngozi Okafor : Sen. Ifeanyi Ubah is the best
19:05:31 From Chigozie Igbo : why you guys giving false information about Senator Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah
19:06:30 From Amaka Oragui : Believe it or not, Senator Ifeanyi Ubah is the only trusted candidate
19:07:10 From Arthur Chibueze : Valentine Ozigbo is the most competent. By qualifications and personal principle. His track records speaks for it’s self.
19:07:15 From Chidi Odinkalu : This conversation cld easily end up throwing up more dust than light. The Nigerian thing is to focus on personalities. That is important. But issues & institutions shd dominate in my view. What issues shd define the contest for the next Gov of Anambra. The idea that paid people here know who will be next Gov of Anambra State is nonsense:
1. The CMD of the Odumegwu Ojukwu University Teaching Hospital died earlier this week because the hospital doesn’t even have oxygen. What kind of School of Medicine is that?
2. Anambra is the only state in Nigeria with shrinking landmass, losing lots of land to erosion. How do we get that fixed?
3. Anambra is a frontier state with boundaries with Delta, Enugu, Imo, Ebonyi, Kogi & exposure to diverse forms of insecurity. How do we confront that?
4. Anambra is facing a rising infrastructure deficit. How is that going to be redressed?
5. Onitsha is a major issue in Anambra’s development. How do we do it?
19:08:54 From Chinedu Obiefuna : Who handed to him?
19:09:19 From Chidi Odinkalu : An additional issue: how do we ensure that the parties throw up credible choices not railroaded straws. And how do you ensure INEC behaves?
19:12:25 From Arthur Chibueze : This is a very robust mental exercise on Governance in Anambra State.
19:13:03 From Chidi Odinkalu : I don’t think it is right to disallow people from speaking in Igbo if they choose. We shd just not make it compulsory for everyone to speak in Igbo.
19:13:29 From Elombah Television : Igbo is an official language and so is allowed
19:14:07 From Tim Elo to Paul Njoku(Direct Message) : From Chidi Odinkalu to Everyone: 07:13 PM
I don’t think it is right to disallow people from speaking in Igbo if they choose. We shd just not make it compulsory for everyone to speak in Igbo.
19:14:19 From Chidi Odinkalu : U shd have clarified that & told the moderator he is wrong
19:14:25 From Oforbuike Tyndale Okoli-Egbo : Mr. Moderator,we need to review ban on Igbo language in our meetings. We are talking about Anambra,any non Igbo person here should be an observer and we can provide for an interpreter please
19:15:30 From Elombah Television : Please the speaking of Igbo is allowed
19:17:32 From Chuks Ogbonna Kamen : The Anambra Warriors AKA FC Ifeanyi Ubah has for the last five years been representing Anambra in the Nigeria premier league. All the other privately owned clubs including some Govt owned ones that they met has since then gone under .It is quite unfortunate to hear the last speaker claim falsely that the Senator is owing his players .
19:18:59 From Adaora Ojiakor : Kudos to Elomba TV for this wonderful initiative.
19:19:28 From Amaka Oragui : The people said, they need a governor that has something to show.
Which simply means Gosim kam fu n’anya.
Senator Ifeanyi Ubah is the Best Candidate
19:20:05 From Anyaora Lucy : Sen.Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah has all the international linkage you are talking about more than Soludo
19:20:36 From Chinedu Obiefuna : https://punchng.com/ifeanyiubah-players-lament-owed-salaries/
19:21:00 From MSG Okwunna : Sir you started well but you sound so sentimental
19:22:02 From Emmanuel Nwosu : Am only being objective. We need to create an economic hub in Anambra State. Who has the international linkages to do that?.
19:22:13 From Chinedu Obiefuna : https://www.vanguardngr.com/2018/08/starbge-as-ifeanyi-ubah-admits-indebtedness-to-players-blames-lmc/
19:22:49 From MSG Okwunna : One problem with people is hatred. If you hate someone because you can’t beat him, every lie becomes a truth.
19:23:16 From Tino Tinero : Senator Ifeanyi Ubah has got the foresights to move Anambra forward. His inputs so far in Anambra South and Anambra generally has been of positive and massive significance to the masses .
19:23:39 From Chuks Ogbonna Kamen : Anambra Warriors is taking on Hearts of PH tomorrow at the CAF certified international stadium at Nnewi Ozubulu..Pls endeavour to watch the boys display and then after conduct an interview on whether they are being owed. We practice GosimKamfunanya as opposed to the planted newspaper propaganda stories u are dropping here
19:23:50 From Nicholas : ifeanyi uba blames lmc for indebtedness to his players? whom does he blame for indebtedness to his workers in Authority newspaper?
19:24:04 From iPhone : So so sentimental and giving kudos to a bad government. You don’t need an airport to be an international hub when you have 4 airports circling the state. This mindset is why we need younger more vibrant people leading the state at this critical stage. I agree on the hub. But who else has a better chance making it happen than a man who has done so in private sector where you have not just the responsibility to plot what is to be done but to raise money to do it. I think from review it is clear that Valentine Ozigbo is the nest among the pack
19:25:06 From Chidi Odinkalu : There are no Messiahs in politics, Mr. Moderator. Pls
19:25:23 From Chuks Ogbonna Kamen : Pls tell us about the people employed by your favourites principals rather than gossiping one man and his many aku lue uno businesses.
19:25:33 From iPhone : Valentine Ozigbo has a primary duty to generate engagement for the youth.
19:26:30 From iPhone : Idleness is the greatest issue we have in anambra today. Youths selling drugs and going into different crime. A leader that rises from the ranks . First hand experience is what the state needs
19:26:36 From Chinedu Obiefuna : Chucks Ogbonna. Just wanted to make it clear that the statement I made was a fact. Players were owed. Not just once. May have been cleared
19:26:54 From MSG Okwunna : Ifeanyi Ubah has everything it takes to be the governor; an employer of Labour.
Don’t be good at pulling people down but tell us about what good the candidate you are supporting has done
19:27:21 From iPhone : There is no best candidate, but considering the current realities in Anambra, Valentine is the candidate to beat
19:27:46 From Nicholas : another exciting prospect is Osita Chidoka. I think we need to speak about him.
19:29:14 From Obiajulu : is my hand too dirty to be called?
19:29:20 From iPhone : Really🤣🤣🤣
19:29:33 From Nicholas : I like to speak about Chidoka.
19:29:43 From Chinedu Obiefuna : What is it about then?
19:30:12 From Ifeanyi Anagwu : Educational qualification of minimum Bachelor’s degree should not be left out in the qualifications of the next governor of Anambra State.
19:30:26 From Francis Okoye : Please my hand has been up here !
19:30:28 From Amaka Oragui : spoke on Thanos
19:30:54 From Amaka Oragui : Pure truth and fact
19:30:58 From Chinedu Obiefuna : We should be able to ask supporters follow up questions
19:31:07 From Anyaora lucy : @Merced Benz Chukwugozie gi Ezigbo mmadu
19:31:11 From Tino Tinero : we want gosimkamfunanya Mr Ifeanyi.
19:31:50 From Tino Tinero : Mercedes you’re speaking truth
19:32:17 From Chidi Odinkalu : Thx Guys. Will be logging off. I have enjoyed enough hyperbole to last me a long time. Ppl shd note: at this stage, there is no candidate here. Everyone is an aspirant until the parties do their filings for their flag bearers. This is not a stage to speak about who will win. It is for me the stage of who is unsuitable. There is 1 person who is unsuitable in my books: Senator Andy Uba is a rogue, a thief & a bandit. He is totally unsuitable to run for governorship of Anambra at this or any other time. That is all I wld say. Enjoy the rest of the trade in hyperbole.
19:32:25 From Chidi Odinkalu : I’ll log off shortly
19:32:58 From Princeezenwa : no too much grammar if your yet to Gosi Ndi Anambra ka fa funanya forget about dreaming of rulling anambra state .
Senator Dr Patrick ifeanyi ubah is the next governor of anambra no two ways about it
19:33:05 From Anyaora lucy : Gosimkamfunanya

19:37:06 From MSG Okwunna : Ngige constructed roads. Where are the roads today?
All the fake roads they are doing for us.
Please we need men of better ideas; not just doing roads
19:38:34 From iPhone : Let’s get Coscharis to hear his opinion on this please.
19:38:35 From Galaxy S10 : The Status quo has failed us. Amb. Ike Oligbo is the new face of Anambra
19:38:48 From Amaka Oragui : Being a professor doesn’t guarantee you a qualified candidate
19:39:04 From MSG Okwunna : This guy is clueless
19:39:34 From Tino Tinero : very clueless with jabberwocky
19:39:52 From Anyaora lucy : Njuko u don’t really have anything to say about Sen ifeanyi Ubah u just want to b noticed
19:40:04 From Esco Onyeka : Please let’s not the mistake of using money bags or sugar coated. tongue politicians…
Let’s consider technocrats/seasoned politicians with impeccable character that can stand by their words. Let’s look at well groomed Anambra man that understands our needs and will be able to take us to next level in making Anambra truly the LIGHT OF THE NATION. No other person can do this except Chief George Moghalu. (MD NIWA)
19:42:17 From Tino Tinero : why can’t you all sell your candidate without mentioning Senator Ifeanyi Ubah
19:42:26 From Francis Okoye : Is it only same people that are allowed to speak here?
19:42:34 From Tino Tinero : #Onye Ji Ball Ka Ana Agba Tackle
19:43:36 From iPhone : In transcorp under Val, Daley was increased over 200% in 3 years and paid consistently. Anambra entrepreneur got introduced to contacts that turned their lives around. Val Ozigbo knows what he is doing
19:44:07 From iPhone : He is the only person fit for the current challenge. All the candidates are good except for the few bad eggs well known.
19:45:00 From Ikem Igbodike : I appreciate Elombah for the efforts so far and we need to zero down on candidates who can deliver good dividends of democracy which Governance index stands for.
19:45:07 From Galaxy Note4 : Please, I need to talk

19:48:12 From iPhone : 👀👀👀
19:49:03 From MSG Okwunna : Oyi has said it all. Anambra needs Ifeanyi Ubah
19:49:15 From Chinedu Obiefuna : And supervise
19:49:30 From Chinedu Obiefuna : Monitor
19:49:56 From Anyaora lucy : Kudos To our able Senator Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah
God will make a way for u
19:50:37 From Chinedu Obiefuna : Thank you moderator
19:50:46 From Emmanuel Nwosu : Building hospital or roads just to win election is the worst form of deception and we don’t need deceivers.
19:50:53 From Tim Elo to Esco Onyeka(Direct Message) : I called you to represent your principal and you backed out. Why?
19:51:18 From PSN YPG SE Zonal coordinator . : At a point where the conversation on rebuilding the South Eastern region, let’s elect Sen. Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah because as an individual has always invested in the east
19:52:02 From Tino Tinero : Emmanuel Nwosu appreciate good tidings so you can excel and be appreciated too
19:52:08 From Tino Tinero : well articulated Hon. Francis Okoye
19:53:08 From Emmanuel Nwosu : Looks like some of us are afraid of education. Ndi Anambra are not illiterates please. Let’s stop talking as if we are scared of educated people.
19:53:36 From Ifeanyi Anagwu : I have been here, not late, with my hand being raised thus far.
19:53:38 From Galaxy S10 : Ambassador Ike Oligbo has the capacity to be the Governor of Anambra State.
19:53:55 From Galaxy Note4 : Please, I want to talk
19:55:05 From Chinedu Obiefuna : We will need at some point, to invite some of the aspirants to come and tell us what their plans are. That will also afford us the opportunity to ask them questions directly
19:56:13 From Tony Abolo : As the Anambra elections comes on, Anambra has to first consider the stake of Anambra in the context of National Security. The Nnewi model of development should serve as a good example. The Chinese model is about lifting all the people so who ever wants to run or govern should have the capacity to lift every Anambrarian. Anambra should and has the capacity to be a model state in Nigeria.
