Dr. Godwin Maduka have spoken on fake new being shared around that he will run Anambra State with his personal income.
In a recent interview, Dr. Maduka says its another “sensational reporting twisted for the purpose of propaganda”.
Dr. Godwin Maduka is one of those people that prove their capabilities way before being given the mantle – a trait of Moses.
Reacting, he says, “This is another sensational reporting twisted for the purposes of propaganda. I only said that if the condition calls for it, we would also put in our money to make the wheel of governance effective. Since I started my philanthropy.
“I have built a police station, a magistrate court, high court, constructed roads, built schools, hospitals and electrified my community. These are infrastructure that should be basically provided by the government.
“In Igbo land, several communities embark on self-help projects that should ordinarily be provided by the government. Imo airport was built with contributions from people. It was a collective project. We don’t always depend entirely on government.”
And for his Newyear message for Ndi Anambra and Nigeria at large, Dr. Godwin Maduka says –
“The past year has been a very challenging one. The pandemic dealt a very big blow to the world economy. Hundreds of thousands of deaths were recorded, health facilities were overwhelmed and people lost their jobs. Also, companies shut down, some downsized drastically in a bid to survive, and for a country like Nigeria and by extension Anambra State that is largely dependent on oil revenue, it was a gloomy year. The revenue available to government to stimulate economic activities contracted.
“It was Hellen Keller who said that the world is full of challenges, but the world is also full of overcoming them. The new year is here already. I urge Ndi Anambra not to give up hope. This 2021, we can rest, but we shouldn’t quit. The holy book tells us that if you knock long and hard enough, closed doors shall be opened. Let’s work for a greater year, believing and hoping that the tears of 2020 shall be wiped from our eyes and that we shall have abundance of blessings this year and beyond.
