The leaders who spoke at a fundraising ceremony for Ekwanda ACK Church building project in Vihiga said that it was due to his good development record, experience, maturity and philosophy of unity of purpose.

Vihiga Governor Wilbur Ottichilo who was also present said that Governor Oparanya was fit to hold the top office in the country because of his unmatched expertise as a planner comparable only to retired President Mwai Kibaki.

“If you unsuccessfully vie for presidency you should play a leadership role in opposition rather than be consigned to oblivion as is the case today,” said Ottichilo.

Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya promised that he was going for the top seat in the country come 2022 due to persistent and widespread calls from leaders and wananchi from all walks of life and called on leaders to respect NASA leader Raila Odinga.

"We cannot entertain politics of envy arising from fear among some leaders that their opponents get positions created by the proposed expanded executive at the national level," he said.

Governor Oparanya was accompanied by MPs Elsie Muhanda,Godfrey Osotsi,  Justus Kizito Mugali , and Chris Omulele.
