…vows to run an all inclusive government.
A major contender under the platform of the PDP and world renowned pain management specialist Dr. Godwin Maduka has stated that his administration will be an oasis of unity and an epitome of inclusiveness for all parts of the State.
Responding to a question from one of the delegates in Onitsha North LGA, Mr Ikechukwu Motune who asked him whether his administration would be for Orumba people alone, Dr. Maduka reiterated that his background as a successful medical doctor running six facilities in the United States has equipped him with a cosmopolitan mindset and attitude, adding that his success as a top pain management specialist in the world wouldn’t have been possible if he didn’t believe that talent is universal. According to him, “I do not know race, class or tribe in my medical facilities. What I look out for when hiring staff for my organization is competence, vision alignment with my goals and character. My medical facilities have over 450 staff strength from different races and orientations.”
Speaking further, Dr. Maduka said that his vision to transform Umuchukwu was driven by the love he has for his people. Those projects were done regardless of kindred, villages or religious denominations. He believed that the construction of a modern church building for both the Anglican Church and the Catholic Church should be taken as example of his character that is devoid of clannishness and he also mentioned that the same spirit guides his scholarship schemes.
“Every zone in Anambra has credible and eminent people whose talents can be harnessed to shape this great State and fan her potential into flame. I will give equal opportunity to every side once the visions align with mine. There can be no progress without unity. My administration will champion balance and unity without sacrificing competence and credibility”, he said.
