While Commending the woman, the governor-elect, Soludo, said: “I summarise the action of the woman of Ukwulu, who rejected N5,000 to influence her voting, as a metaphor for the spirit of Anambra.

“The woman said ‘I am poor; I don’t have any money in my pocket, but I won’t take N5000’.
“That is the spirit of Anambra and her action is the resilience of the Anambra spirit.”
