Beside prebendal politics, there’s no pertinent reason to wish away the need to give IFEMBA the mandate.
If not for any reason, then, for his previous impacts in the lives of the people. Taking memories back, one may remember the pains and abandonment felt by the people of the ORUMBA NORTH constituency due to bad road network. In those days, people perceived it as a curse to travel to Awgbu, Amokpala, Oko, etc. Infact, the constituency was the worst area to be visited then. To mention but a few.
All these menaces continued until the EMERGENCE OF HON. BARR. UCHENNA OKONKWO OKOM as a law maker, in the State House. The story began to change. Due to his vocal and reasoning ability, he pushed and achieved the construction of NIBO-UMUAWULU-AWGBU-AGULU ROAD, which remains one of the longest road ever constructed by Anambra state government.
He didn’t relent, he further fought for the construction of AWGBU-AMOKPALA-OKO ROAD. It’s quite obvious and a clear record that ODOR RIVER BRIDGE on this second road stands the longest bridge ever constructed by any state government in Nigeria, at large. One must be sincere to accept the reality that it’s the availability of these road networks that brought about some developments in these areas. All these, because of his qualitative and unsentimental representation.
But, we are aware of his co-members, who were comfortable in being bench warmers, who couldn’t attract a single project to their constituencies, rather based on their selfish interests.
Definitely, the highest regret of the people of ORUMBA NORTH now is the stolen mandate of IFEMBA to return to the House. But, there is still hope and the hope is now. If BARR. UCHENNA OKONKWO OKOM could do it then, he will do it more better now in the federal House.
one doesn’t value what he has, until he loses it
If with all these qualities, coupled with his advantage of being a renowned lawyer, I think he can’t be compared with others. It’s all about who knows the law to make and how to make it.
Therefore, let’s think for a better tomorrow. Who has the experience? Who has the vocal and ability to stand pressure? Who has the extreme influence? Who knows the law to be made? He is none of, but HON. BARR. UCHENNA OKONKWO OKOM
(say no to sleeping, silent, Illiterate and back bench representatives, they can attract no project)
