…..on why he wants to be governor.
“Well, fundamentally, Anambra is a very gifted state, academically, culturally, spiritually, business and sports wise. It is an unbelievable harvest of talents that we have here, but, I found out that while our people are excited about this pool of talents their approach to governance have not captured the very essence of what can explode these talents.
“We have missed out on the connection between public service and the family, “ezi na uno” that is what it implies in Igbo language and it is basically the foundation. “Nwa afo”, this word in Igbo land has a link to the womb, to the family, but here, we run governance like a third party event, hence governance is far away, it is different and it is just out there.
“We need to break that wall between our people and governance, once we do that, accountability will increase, as well as performance, participation, trust and confidence.
“My attraction is not to do anything that is above the size, the gift or the boldness of Anambra state because the state is very versatile. It is simply, to connect them to the fundamental and once the state is connected to the fundamental and it goes into governance with family attitude, then this whole game will change.
“So, my attraction for governance is to bring that dimension that would bring it home to the people.” Nwankpo said
