Anambra’s ex-CJ joins politics, one week after retirement

Mr Peter Umeadi, who retired about a week ago as Chief Judge of Anambra State, has joined politics.

Umeadi, on Wednesday, declared his decision to join ruling All Progressives Grand Alliance in the state.

He said he took the decision in order to support the state Governor, Mr Willie Obiano, in his task of governing the state.

He said, “If you are on retirement and go to sleep, your brain will sleep with you.

“It is desirable that if you are on retirement, you find something doing so that your life will be prolonged through the service you render to people.

“So, I have come to my ward today to associate with my people and identify with my ward.

“I will carry out any lawful instructions my ward chairman gives me. I have come to try my political venture. I call it venture because politics is not a do-or-die affair.”
