The lawmaker representing Nnewi North/south/Ekwusigo federal constituency, Engr Chris Azubogu, has rejected his appointment as coordinator for Valentine Ozigbo’s Governorship Campaign Council for Anambra south senatorial zone.
Mr Azubogu, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party, who vied for the governorship ticket alongside Ozigbo, lamented that he was neither consulted nor did he made any input before his name was mentioned.
In a statement that was signed on Monday by his media office, Chief Azobogu explained that his preoccupation at the moment is to serve the his constituents through various ongoing projects, and would not wish to be distracted by Mr Ozigbo’s campaign activities.
The statement reads;
Engr Chris Emeka Azubogu’s attention has been drawn to the publication circulating on Social Media with the title: PDP UNVEIL HIGH-POWERED ANAMBRA STATE GOVERNORSHIP CAMPAIGN COUNCIL COMPRISING Obi, Oduah, Udeh, Obiogbolu, AZUBOGU, Okwenna, Others.
In the said publication, Engr. Azubogu was mentioned to be in charge of Anambra South Senatorial Zone campaign as Zonal Director of the Campaign.
We wish to state as follows:
(1) Engr Chris Emeka Azubogu was not consulted before the said composition of Campaign Council and was surprised to see his name as the Zonal Director for the said Campaign.
(2) Let it be known that Azubogu had no input in the said campaign council, not even in the said zone he was mentioned to be in charge.
(3) We wish to state that the quintessential lawmaker, otherwise called ‘MR. PROJECT’ is currently focusing on how to sustain efforts to bridge infrastructural gap through strategic engagements with all levels of Government, especially the Federal Government. Hence, is seriously pursuing the completion of some of the following projects: Nnewi Industrial Park project, situated at Unubi/Akwaihedi/Uga; Oba/Amichi/Uga/Okigwe Road; as well as pressing home the need for Gas Infrastructure and other key infrastructure that will help to stimulate growth.
(4) In view of these, Engr Chris Azubogu therefore, wishes to withdraw himself from the said Campaign Council to enable him focus on critical engagements that will protect the development interests of his constituents.
