Content and capacity he said will take the state to that great level it wants to be. He noted that he was a senator for five years. It wasn’t zoning that made that feasible. Rather his sufficient content and capacity did.

” In summary, nobody ever sat down to talk about zoning in Enugu State, but luckily we thank God that every part of Enugu State has witnessed governorship except the people of Awgu.”

“I don’t want to be a zonal governor. I want to be the Governor of Enugu State. Those talking of zoning are not sincere; they have people they are fronting as the next Governor of Enugu State.”
