First, with a chain of ranking qualifications, what academic profile of an aspirant could be more intimidating and overwhelming than that of Dr. Godwin Maduka (Okosisi Orumba)?
- BSc. Chemistry – Suma Cum Lau Laude (First Class)
- Doctorate of Pharmacy (PharmD)
- Doctorate of Medicine (MD)
- Doctorate of Science (DSc. Hon)
- Doctor of Physiology (PhD) in Healthcare Management
- Professor of Pain Management
- Professor of Anesthesiology
- Professor in Surgery.
Rated as one of top Pain Management physician in the world, Dr. Maduka was recently honored for two consecutive years (2019 & 2020) as the man of the year in Nigeria. He was recognized by President Muhammadu Buhari as top Nigerian medical expert in the United States. In that capacity, he accompanied Mr. President to the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) meeting.
Dr Maduka’s template for development reflects the “Akụ ruo Ụnọ” (think home) philosophy. Who’s manifesto do you equate with a man who single handedly transformed his town; built presumably the largest medical research center in Africa, divisional police headquarters, High Court, awarded scholarships to many to different levels of education, with commendable investments made in human capital development too.
Being an international player, Ijele Ndigbo is in this governorship race to make a statement for Ndigbo, Nigeria and the black race globally. We can’t continue to be looked down on as an inferior race, Dr. Maduka’s success in professional practice has proven all men are created equal. Coming from the most politically marginalized part of Anambra State, Orumba, his magical wand of transformation today transcends the length and breadth of the state. No doubt he surly understand how to serve the common interest of Ndi Anambra better.
Even has he loves and shares in the beautiful vision of other aspirants for our dear state, the Youth Leader Emeritus as he is fondly called has unarguably done more than well scripted manifestos. As the grassroot conversation continues to spread like wild fire, Ndi Anambra are getting overwhelmingly convinced that we will #WinWithGodwin.
