The aspirant described herself as a heavy weight politician who relied on God the father instead of adopting a godfather in order to win the election
She said, “If you are talking of heavy weight, if we are put on scale I believe I am heavier than everyone else.
“I have a lot to offer. I have passion for selfless service and godly service. I believe I stand out because l have DNA of PDP .
“I am a core party woman from inception. Yes, new things are happening, the world is changing. Women are coming up in different places .
“Anambra State already have two women senators, which is unknown in the rest of Nigeria. It has never been done elsewhere.
“In Anambra, the women are special and innovative and we are daring. This time it will be different and we will see the difference woman can make.”
