Dr Ifeanyi Ubah, chairman of Capital Oil and Gas, and the coordinator of Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria(TAN), a political machinery used to galvanize support for former President Goodluck Jonathan’s second term has said that he ensured transparency in the group during the campaign; the reason he has not been invited by the EFCC.
Ubah who spoke to journalists in Nnewi said that he has no regrets working for Jonathan as he remains the only president that gave Ndigbo hope and also ensured that they were integrated into mainstream politics and also given relevant appointments in Nigeria.
The oil magnate asked journalists, “have you ever heard my name being associated with stealing? If I did anything wrong during the campaigns, do you think I will be here talking to you today?
“I ensured that I did not involve myself in any shaddy thing during the election, and that is why I am a free man today. What I am saying is that Anambra needs a man who has proven track records as a governor, so that things will move fine.
“If I had any blemish, the Buhari government would be looking for me today, but I ensured I did not involve myself in things that were not right.
“You may not know, Buhari government has paid me a huge sum of money which was owed me by the Jonathan administration. I worked for Jonathan, but he could not pay me because he was listening to gossips, but Buhari who I even worked against came and paid me.”
Ubah added that he remains proud of Jonathan and has no regret working for him.
“He is the man who ensured that Ojukwu our hero got a burial fit for a general, he is also the man who appointed an Igbo man, Ihejirika into a high office, and most of his ministers too. He is the man who gave Igbo an identity, I don’t regret what I did for him,” Ubah said.
Speaking on Obiano’s tenure, Ubah picked holes what the governor has described as achievements so far, saying that security which he sees as his biggest achievement is no achievement.
Ubah said he is not afraid to tell the governor the truth as he is not a government contractor who is looking for jobs to do.
“Security is no achievement, but a priority for the governor. For the three flyover bridges, someone should tell Obiano that the bridges are not priority to Anambra people.”
He said he will continue to do his best to uplift youths of the state, which is one of the main reason for establishing his football club, FC Ifeanyi Ubah.
