She said she was optimistic of picking the party’s ticket for the election.

“ Yes, new things are happening and the world is changing. Women are coming up in different places. Anambra already has two women senators, which has never happened elsewhere in Nigeria. In Anambra, we the women are special and innovative and we are daring. This time it will be different and we will see the difference a woman can make,” she said.

She said that she was not afraid of big weights in the contest because she was also a big weight with God as her political father. Basically politics for me is not a game, it is a passion. I grew up in politics and I come from a political family and I know you don’t go on such a journey without God. I have the most high God with me and I believe that since I have Him I will not fail,” she said.
