Ahead of the July 22 governorship party primary of the Progressives Peoples Alliance in Anambra State, Godwin Ezeemo, has promised that he would give priority to children and women’s welfare in the state if voted to power.
Ezeemo made this known in an interview with The Punch on Saturday, July 15, hours after it was reported that some youths suspected to be members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) disrupted a church programme attended by him at Odoekpe, Ogbaru Local Government Area of Anambra state.
Ezeemo, who is running on the platform of the Progressives Peoples Alliance, said: “Anambra children have been suffering. I can tell you that over 40 percent of them don’t go to school because their parents don’t have the money to sponsor them.
“Early in the morning, they will be given a tray of groundnuts or pure water to hawk. They have been denied; I will comfort them.”
It was also gathered that Ezeemo’s 14-year old daughter, Miss Kelechi Ezeemo has begun mobilisation of the youth in the area to support her father, in the race.
Kelechi who described her father as a good man and a philanthropist said she would want her father to be the governor of the state so that greater number of the people of the state would reap from his kind disposition.

She said: “I’m excited that my father has achieved greatness. We’re lacking nothing. We’re born with even golden spoon in our mouth. We’re comfortable.
‘My father is rich and he is a good man in every definition of it. I would want our people to vote for him and see the difference.
“My father is a truthful person; he is a kind man. My father is an achiever. Let the people of this state try him and see the comfort they will get.
“My father has done so well for many people in this state and beyond but he needs a bigger platform to expand and extend his goodness to greater number of people.
“I don’t want the people of this state to miss this opportunity; that’s why I’m out to mobilise the young people of this state for my father’s victory in November 18 poll.”
Kelechi said she would stop at nothing in ensuring that “Anambra gets it right this time”.
