I’ll contest if its God’s will - Odi

Dr Ifeanyi Odii Dr Ifeanyi Odii

Businessman and philanthropist, Dr Ifeanyi Odii, has stated that he may run for an elective position if given clear directives from God.

The chairman of Ebele and Anyichuks Foundation added that even though he has impacted many lives in the Edo state through his God-given wealth, he would only venture into public office if he hears a sure call from God.

“For me, I believe whatever God says will definitely come to pass, and I believe so because my story is all about allowing God to be the one to take the lead. So, if God says I should contest, of course, I will obey.

"But one thing I have known is that I have judiciously used the little blessings of God in my life to impact the lives of the people. Of course, it’s not easy for a single person to build 130 buildings and complete them within two years. We have built schools and churches, roads and other infrastructure with the little resources that God has given to me,” he said.

Ifeanyi thanked the senate chief whip who visited his home, describing it as an honour. He also lauded Kalu’s leadership efforts.
