The federal lawmaker representing Nnewi North, Nnewi South, and Ekwusigo Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives and a former People Democratic Party aspirant for the Anambra November 6 governorship election, Engr Chris Emeka Azubogu, has distanced himself from the news making rounds on social media of his appointment as the PDP's Anambra South Senatorial Zone Campaign Director.

Azubogu, in a statement on Monday morning, titled "Disclaimer!" issued by the Azubogu Media Office, noted that he was never consulted by anyone and was shocked that his name is being bandied about as a member of the purported PDP Campaign Council.


While equivocally distancing himself from the group, he pointed out that he is currently more concerned about how to deliver developmental projects to his constituents.

He said, "Engr Chris Emeka Azubogu's attention has been drawn to the publication circulating on Social Media with the title: PDP UNVEIL HIGH-POWERED ANAMBRA STATE GOVERNORSHIP CAMPAIGN COUNCIL COMPRISING Obi, Oduah, Udeh, Obiogbolu, AZUBOGU, Okwenna, Others.


"In the said publication, Engr. Azubogu was mentioned to be in charge of Anambra South Senatorial Zone campaign as Zonal Director of the Campaign.


We wish to state as follows:


"(1) Engr Chris Emeka Azubogu was not consulted before the said composition of Campaign Council and was surprised to see his name as the Zonal Director for the said Campaign.


"(2) Let it be known that Azubogu had no input in the said campaign council, not even in the said zone he was mentioned to be in charge.
 

"(3) We wish to state that the quintessential lawmaker, otherwise called 'MR. PROJECT' is currently focusing on how to sustain efforts to bridge infrastructural gap through strategic engagements with all levels of Government, especially the Federal Government. Hence, is seriously pursuing the completion of some of the following projects: Nnewi Industrial Park project, situated at Unubi/Akwaihedi/Uga; Oba/Amichi/Uga/Okigwe Road; as well as pressing home the need for Gas Infrastructure and other key infrastructure that will help to stimulate growth.


"(4) In view of these, Engr Chris Azubogu therefore, wishes to withdraw himself from the said Campaign Council to enable him focus on critical engagements that will protect the development interests of his constituents," the statement concluded.
