“My reputation in Anambra state having being the head of the biggest markets in onitsha, because Onitsha controls all the elites that are the decision makers in all the 177 communities. I have been a leader in Onitsha main market for 10 years. Within the 10 years of my reign, I brought a change that cannot be erase in 100 years going forward. I have been in the market and our popularity is indescribable. The legacy I left when I was the leader of the main market supersede any influence APGA has in Anambra state.
When asked what he would do differently if given opportunity, the governorship aspirant said: “I am a catalyst throughout my life. I have always brought change to whatever I do. My records shows that every field of human endeavors I have always engaged myself I have brought changes not only inNigeria but across the world.”
On how he will use agriculture and other initiatives to solve the problem of insecurityin the state, Nwankwo said: “Can I be honest with you. There have been absolute peace in Anambra state. Until a good leader gets to power. There will be a drastic change towards that agitation. If you read my manifesto, I am going to single Anambra out to become the industrial hub of Africa. And, millions of teaming youths will not have time to demonstrate when they are employed.
“I have done businesses in 7 countries of the world. I have been to Israel about three times, I have been to Ethiopia with outstanding agricultural records. We are going to employ the best brains. In all my companies, I have always partner with the best companies in the world. Why people failed in agriculture is because they dont look for those with the pedigree. People with the records and experience to manage their entities. And that is why they failed.”
