A gubernatorial aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Anambra State, Dr Godwin Maduka has called on Anambra people to vote in people with enough experience and interest of the state at heart.
He said that if elected, he would make education a major priority, saying that the quality education he got in the US enabled him to make exploits.
Addressing journalists at his country home of Umuchukwu, Orumba South Local Government Area of the state, Maduka who described himself as a medical doctor, pharmacist, critical care doctor, and a renowned pain manager said that as a governor of the state, he would use his personal money to run the affairs of government to ensure that all his promises are fulfilled.
While saying that he has great plans for both the state and the people, the medical doctor added, “I just addressed a group of market women association who came to pay me solidarity visit. I told them we will stop flooding this place with things we can produce once I become governor.
“People may say that government has limited resources, but let me ask you, have you ever looked into the books of government? The one they call security votes, has anyone ever accounted for them?
“The advantage is that I am one person who knows where to find funds to build infrastructure. It is not about government funds. I know where to source funds, and I also have my personal money. I am going to use my money to run government. As a personal citizen, I have been doing it, and we will do more.
“In this community and beyond, I have built government institutions. I have built schools, churches of all denominations. I built the 17 floor building for medical research, and young people are all employed here. These are things that government should build.
“I built courts here for the government, I built judges quarters, I single handedly built police stations here, and currently I am building and donating to the federal government a police college. They are all my personal money.^
