Ebelechukwu Obiano, wife of the immediate past governor of Anambra State Willie Obiano, has declared her intention to join the contest for the forthcoming Anambra North Senatorial District election.

“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 in Abuja,” she said in a statement on Wednesday.

“As has 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 priority 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.”

Mrs Obiano also apologised to Governor Charles Soludo and the Igbo people over the clash between her and Bianca Ojukwu in Awka at the inauguration programme of Soludo on March 17, 2022.

“The incident, to say the least, was most unnecessary, unfortunate and I regret my action. It was an unintended action as violence is never in my character,” she said.

“Your Excellency, Sir, I hold your person, your ideals, the records of your great accomplishments in public service in Nigeria and beyond, as well as their concomitant colossal impacts in public policies in the highest esteem.”
