He said the  Ununna system was the only way the government could be brought under the control of citizens

“Umunna is the only institution in Anambra today where husband’s, wives and children participate to elect leaders without bribery and corruption.

*They are the only people that hold their leaders to account and protect them with a unified voice when they are challenged.

“This is a system we must use to bring back good governance in Anambra because that is the unit that still holds the principles with which our forebears led the people.
