The wife of former Anambra state governor, Mrs. Ebele Obiano, has stated her intention to contest for senate. She is seeking the Anambra north senatorial seat which is currently held by Stella Oduah, former minister of aviation. She made this known while speaking to newsmen in Awka, Wednesday.
In the words of Mrs. Obiano: “My interest to join the senatorial race is in response to an overwhelming pressure and calls from my people to represent them in the senate at the national assembly, Abuja”.
“I have been attested to by the good people of Anambra state, service to people, humanity and sharing love and putting smiles on sad faces are my priorities in life, and I know that it is the will of God because the Bible says that God is love.
“Therefore, having witnessed and been positively touched by my ever willing disposition to care for people, empower the poor and needy, especially women and children, particularly widows, orphans and the destitute, my people decided that I should come and serve them better in a higher capacity.”
