Anambra gubernatorial aspirant says his ambition to become governor of the state is divine.
“I decided to run in the 2014 election by divine calling; I am aware of the so-called `heavy contenders’ for the seat.
“With God all things are possible. If God has said I should be governor I cannot say No and if God says I should drop my ambition I will,” he told newsmen.
No fewer than 20 aspirants have so far declared their intention to contest the Anambra governorship seat.
Mr. Igwebuike said that his mission in politics is to give Anambra a new lease of life and bring succour to the people.
He, however, expressed the hope that he would pick the CPC’s ticket at its primary election.
“I am an aspirant and I believe that having been called, I will pick the party’s ticket by God’s grace,” Mr. Igwebuike, a graduate of Economics and retired Army captain, said.
On plans by the All Progressives Congress, APC, to use the Anambra polls to test its strength, Mr. Igwebuike said:
“Merger is not an alliance. It takes a longer time for such arrangements to be concluded.
“I will fully subscribe to it if it works out. But for now, I remain a contender on the platform of the CPC.”
