According to her, “I want to go to federal House of representative to serve our people with all honesty, am not going to the green chamber of the National Assembly (NASS) to amass wealth, but to render service.
“Please, I want to urge you to support my aspiration, especially our women, as you will not regret it, don’t sell your votes during the election to those who do not have your interest at heart”, advising members of the party to be weary of some PDP surrogates in their fold who are determined to destabilize the APC in the state for their selfish interest.

“I have absolute confidence that APC has the capacity to rewrite the wrongs of our political history in Enugu and country at large, hence the need for all Nigerians to embrace the party ahead of the 2019 general election.
