Who is Melie Onyejepu: for those who may not have known him or come in contact with him. He is one of the Senior Special Assistant to the current governor of Anambra state led by HE Willie Obiano on budget and planning and his long time ally in the banking sector.
Infact he is one of the kitchen cabinet member of Chief Willie Obiano’s failed Administration despite being just an SSA on budget and planning for the government.

Yes and I quote on his response to a lady in support of Soludo governorship ambition during the Oke Mmanwu festival at his home in Nnewi.” Shut up, we have supported the governor for his two terms and it’s our turn to be supported”.

Research has it on a good note that Hon Melie is working hard to skirm away with the governorship ticket of APGA Cum 2021 just as chief Nicholas Ukachukwu did during the 2019 APGA Anambra south senatorial primaries.
In 2019 while others where working visibily, the former Apga candidate for Anambra South senatorial zone was busy working through monetary and with the governors support which is believed as this new entrants footsteps too
In his case, His current influence so far on Willie Obiano’s Administration has indicated that he is already an annoited candidate of the governor before he started making the moves at the first place for the No1 position of the state.
His recent influence on the Apga led Government has Enabled him attract the following which are only political positions for his advancement of interest and not for the common man necessity.

This Foundations are as follows:
