No fewer than 150 widows in Onitsha South Local Government Area of Anambra State have begged a House of Representatives candidate, Edward Ibuzo, to “marry” them.
They made the plea when the candidate, who is currently a member of the state House of Assembly, representing the Onitsha North II, came for Thanksgiving at the Saint Jude Catholic Church, Woliwo, Onitsha.
Ibuzo said he came to thank God for being an unopposed Reps candidate under the platform of All Progressives Grand Alliance.
The President of the widows association, Ego Augustina, said, “Ibuzo is a man of the people, he has been taking good care of the widows in the area and he gives us free loans.
“When we heard he is here to give thanks to God for being elected unopposed to represent APGA in the Federal House of Representatives, we rushed to also honour him with this ‘winning award’.
“We are pleading with him to marry us. We are not too much for him. We need protection and care and he has been doing it before now, so he should marry us”.
