2025 governorship election: Why Nwibe is best choice to lead Anambra – LP Chieftain

A Chieftain of the Labour Party in Anambra, Hon Emeka Umeakuka, has said that Chief Barth Nwibe is the best man for the job of next Anambra governor come 2025.

Umeakuka told journalists in Awka on Saturday that Anambra needed a thoroughbred, homegrown grass root politician with critical, creative thinking capacity to provide solutions to identified problems

The grassroots mobiliser described Nwibe, an oil magnate as a man with a blend of intellectual capacity, rich history of human capacity development and proven records of youth empowerment and employment

He said leadership had been identified as problem of any society and that Anambra electorate should be wary and meticulous in chosing the leadership that would be people oriented and govern with a touch of humanity, character and integrity

“Anambra requires one who sees the act of governance through the eyes of the masses and not through the whims and caprices of the elite bureaucrats and technocrats.

“It behooves the people to be very critical, careful and analytical in making a well informed decision that determines their future.

“This is why Anambra needs Chief Barth Nwibe, a whose accomplishment in the private sector underscores his ebullience, competence and capability to run for the exalted office of the governor of Anambra.

“Bart Nwibe is a man among men,a man of the people, a lavish giver, a philanthropist and a liberal democrat who believes in the liberal concept of power, where the masses are the true custodians,” he said.

Umeakuka said Nwibe had the capacity to transform Anambra and believed in Peter Obi’s governance and political philosophy

He said the businessman and politician had generated jobs in his private sector engagements and empowered many youths education through his ‘Ugo Igbo Foundation’ which he had run for over 18 years.

“Available statistics show that over 1,000 youths of Anambra State have benefitted from his free tuition and other entrepreneurial skill acquisition empowerment programmes

“This record is phenomenal, Bart Nwibe’s effort has built capacity, generated employment and reduced poverty in the state.

“He is the man of the moment, the man to be trusted with the Anambra State governorship mantle, come 2025,” he said.
