According to him, the Enugu State Government had denied organizers of the event access to other venues, they had intended using.

“The Enugu State Government denied the organizers access to other venues including Union Secondary School, Government Field, even Federal College of Education, brought by my father. I thank him for his courage.

He said: “Today is among the happiest days of my life. God has already done it, those in the spirit, the clergy have seen it.

“He was coming to my house in Onoh Quarters, GRA, Enugu to seek my support, and I supported. I was working in the Presidency under Jonathan when Ugwuanyi came to me in 2015, I supported so well that only an ingrate will not appreciate it.



“I said on radio, anyone who knows I stole Government money, come and say it. I have never stolen anyone’s money, I have never been jailed, or probed or investigated by EFCC.

“Anyone that doesn’t know that I will be in Lion Building by next year is joking. God provided LP as a platform, we are not thieves.

” In the other parties, they are filled with thieves and people being probed by EFCC. No matter what they do, they can’t get me, I’m shielded by God, by the Holy Spirit.

“I’m not afraid, their thugs can’t get me, God is with me. “Finally, I re-dedicate myself before you, my people, that I shall serve you with the fear of God and dedication
