He said the state did not need somebody who is coming on an utopia
value just because he wants to be governor or make money.
“For any person to just rule Anambra state, he has just to be born here,
must have been bred anywhere. He must have serious contact with the
state, either, he is doing business here, working here or comes home
often as he/she could.
“Those who have ruled Anambra well were those who are on ground and
connected with system before becoming governors.
“Those who had just came from outside to be the governors of the state,
if you watch them closely, they don’t know about the state and hardly
perform well. When you talk about roads, they think only about Enugu-
Onitsha roads or those roads leading to their own homes” he said.
Ozoigbo also said that the zoning arrangements in the state was created
and ordianed by God and nobody can stop it again.
“Those who do not have the knowledge of how God started the zoning in

should not be mentioned in Anambra because the state had produce ‘who
is who’ in the country, which most came from Anambra South.
