The governorship aspiration of Dr Godwin Maduka, ahead of the 2021 election in Anambra state received a boost at the weekend when Anambra Good Governance Group (AGGG) threw its weight behind the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) front runner.
The Coordinator of AGGG, Ichie Ike Ejiofor, who was speaking with journalists in Awka said his group is solidly behind the governorship aspiration of Maduka because of his antecedents.
Ichie Ejiofor noted that the Umuchukwu born governorship aspirant was the first person who in rare demonstration of his philanthropy and charity gave out palliatives to people in his community, Orumba Local Government Area, his council area and the entire 181 communities in the state.
This gesture according to the coordinator of AGGG is second to none and worthy of commendation.
“Dr. Godwin Maduka through his Foundation ‘Godwin Maduka Foundation’ distributed palliative materials such as food items, 60 bags of 5kg rice each to the 181 communities that made up the 21 LGs in Anambra state through the President Generals of each Community.
“Also, Godwin Maduka Foundation through Radio Sapientia 95.3 FM Onitsha doled out cash of ten thousand naira (#10 000) each to many widows across Anambra state. These are acts of love that cannot be swept under the carpet.” Ejiofor noted.
He however pointed out that Dr Maduka’s philanthropic gesture actually started long time ago as many people have benefited from him in the past.
“All the governorship aspirants in the PDP fold are eminently qualified to give Anambra State five star governance, but Dr Godwin Maduka is outstanding among them all.” He stressed.
The Coordinator expressed the preparedness of his group to take the good news of Maduka to all the nooks and crannies of Anambra State for the purpose of mobilizing support for the governorship aspiration.
“AGGG has structures in all the 21 local government areas of Anambra State and we are prepared to mobilize these structures for the actualization of his governorship aspiration,” Ejiofor concluded.
