2023: Chidoka remains best choice for Idemili North/South – Group
Less than one month to the 2023 general elections, a group known as Idemili Solidarity for Good Governance (ISGG) has thrown their weight behind the current member representing Idemili North/South Federal Constituency in the Federal House of Representatives Hon Obinna Chidoka to return to the House to continue to represent Idemili North/South for another tenure on the ground that Obinna as they fondly call the Lawmaker remains the best choice with brighter future for Idemili people in Nigeria.
Members of the group led by the convener and Chairman Dr. Oluebube Nwangwu said they want the sitting Lawmaker who is the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for Idemili North/South Federal Constituency election next month to return to the House because he will return as a ranking member of the House and as such, he stands the chance to become a principal officer including the chance of emerging the Speaker of the Federal House or Deputy Speaker or any of the principal office or chairman of a major committee in the House
Addressing journalists at the meeting, Dr. Nwangwu said “Obinna is presenting a brighter chance, a wonderful opportunity for that matter for Idemili to go to the rooftop and occupy a top-ranking position in Nigeria, so we have to work on that opportunity and see how it goes by reelecting him back to the Federal House. The picture is very clear that Obinna has acquired enough experience to serve at higher level and in any capacity, he finds himself”
Asked to assess the performance of the sitting Lawmaker to justify his reelection bid Nwangwu said “Obinna has made Idemili very proud in Abuja with his active participation in the affairs of the House in presenting and defending Bills and Motions and most importantly attracting dividends of democracy to the Constituents in the areas of empowerment of traders, women and youth with loans and jobs, road construction and other infrastructures and facilities in other areas like water, electricity and education among other things.
The chairman explained with enthusiasm that “Obinna has secured job opportunities for over 50 people mostly youth. He is the first Reps Member from Idemili to attract road project. He has brought over 5 rural road projects namely Amafor road in Nkpor, Amesi road at Ugwuagba, All Saints Road at Obosi, Ikoku road at Isu village in Oba Aboji road also in Oba and Nkolika borehole road in Obosi. He facilitated CBN loan to traders with 50 traders getting N5million loan each, another 50 getting N1millon each and another set of 100 traders getting N500, 000 loans each.
He continued “We also have it on record that Obinna has attracted 15 electric transformer and street solar light distributed and mounted across the communities such as Ogidi, Nnobi, Abacha, Eziowwelle, Odume, Enekwasumpu and others. He has also attracted water boreholes and classroom blocs at Awka Etiti, Uke, Ideani and other places and empowered the people with vehicles, tricycles, motorcycles, sowing machines and hair dresser among other things that aid people to get means of livelihood.
Corroborating the Chairman, the Secretary of the group Comrade Chiebuka Adimora observed that Obinna’s experience in legislative services are needed to face the current tough situation of things in Nigeria arguing that sending a new hand to represent Idemili North/South in the National Assembly in 2023 would be counterproductive because tough time requires people with experience and capacity to face it
