Ibekaku-Nwagwu, the Special Adviser to the President on Justice Reform and Open Government Partnership, has spoken on her victory at the All Progressives Congress (APC) senatorial primary.
Juliet Ibekaku-Nwagwu clinched the Enugu West ticket.
She told newsmen at Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka’s Adoration Ground in Enugu on Sunday that the cleric had predicted her victory, adding that she was confident that she would defeat incumbent Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu.
“In the past it, was a mere affirmation for him. I am the only candidate with the magic finger to defeat him. He will be defeated this time,” she said.
“Fr. Mbaka prayed for me and told me straight that I would win, the contest was so hot and very unpredictable, I needed something that would give me an edge over my senior brothers that slugged it out with me.
“The outcome of all such prayer was what gave me victory. I owe every appreciation to God almighty. I will continue to hold on to God until I unseat Ekweremadu at the 2019 general election.”
Ibekaku-Nwagwu promised to ensure quality representation of the zone at the Senate if elected.
