A governorship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Anambra state, Dr Godwin Maduka has said he would use his personal money to run the affairs of government if elected governor of the state in 2021.
He said he would ensure that all his promises are fulfilled.
Speaking in his country home Umuchukwu in Orumba South Local Government Area during a youth carnival and summit he organized for young people, Maduka said he would ensure that all his promises were fulfilled.
He said he would make education a major priority, stressing that if he had not received quality education in the US, he would not have made exploit in life today.
Maduka, the owner of Las Vegas Pain Institute in US, said to be among the wealthiest people in the state, urged people of the state to vote only those who have the interest of the state at heart and have gathered enough experience.
He said, “I have great plans for Anambra State and Anambra people. I just addressed a group of market women association who came to pay me solidarity visit. I told them we will stop flooding this place with things we can produce once I become governor.
“People may say that government has limited resources, but let me ask you, have you ever looked into the books of government? The one they call security votes, has anyone ever accounted for them?
“The advantage is that I am one person who knows where to find funds to build infrastructure. It is not about government funds. I know where to source funds, and I also have my personal money. I am going to use my money to run government. As a personal citizen, I have been doing it, and we will do more.
“In this community and beyond, I have built government institutions. I have built schools, churches of all denominations. I built the 17 floor building for medical research, and young people are all employed here. These are things that government should build.
“I built courts here for the government, I built judges quarters, I single handedly built police stations here, and currently I am building and donating to the federal government a police college. They are all my personal money,” he said.
He described himself as a medical doctor, pharmacist, critical care doctor, and a renowned pain manager.
