In public service,I became a Senator in 2015, I was there briefly where I was chairman of the Senate committee on downstream and that was the first time a woman and Southeasterner will be occupying such a position.

On why she should be voted Ekuwnife said that she has been working for the people which has always earned her their votes.

“So because I am sure I am doing well they will vote for me and my works over the years will speak for me. Anambra currently needs an experienced administrator , Anambrarians need someone who understands the state and the people. The people need someone who understands the challenges confronting the state.
“You cannot solve a problem you don’t understand, I believe I have the solutions to the problems of our dear state. Also, I am confident that I will be the best Governor Anambra has ever produced because I will be fair, just and most importantly govern with empathy.
