2023: Gov. Obiano’s aide set to resign, expresses intention to run for Federal House of Representatives seat
Special Assistant to the executive governor of Anambra state on community relations, Prince Eze Chianumba, is set to resign his position ahead of 2023 general election.
He made this known to newsmen during his clarion call to the office of Chief of Staff to the Governor, Mr. Primus Odili at the government house, Awka.
According to him, his resignation is due to the recent amended electoral Act signed by President Buhari which state that all public office holders are to resign from office on or before 12 months to the election.
Prince Eze Chianumba in his remarks to the Chief of Staff lamented over the age long backwardness of his constituency (Anambra West).
He expressed worries over the lack of infrastructural amenities especially the abandonment of the road linking Anam-Kogi federal highway which if completed according him, will become the fastest route to Nigeria’s federal capital territory Abuja in the whole of southern Nigeria.
He said, “We have suffered and we’re going to stop our suffering by ourselves, we have patiently waited for non Anambra West indigene to put to stop to our suffering, but the long awaited time is overdue, we can’t be hoping for other constituent to help ameliorate our problem while theirs is deteriorating.
“To fastrack infrastructural development in Anambra West, an Anambra West indigene must represent ndi Anambra West in the green chamber, two major problem in my constituency is road infrastructure and electricity, it’s only when we get onye Anambra West elected that these problems will be solved.
“The partial construction on the Anam-Kogi highway and electrification was done during when an Anambra West indigene was elected in 2007 under the watchful eye of Hon. Ralph Okeke, which was later abandoned immediately he left office as a federal lawmaker.
“It’s time to revive the same spirit of getting onye Anambra West elected in order to rejuvenate and trigger the needed infrastructural development”.
Eze Chianumba in his news briefing at government house, also expressed his readiness to represent actively not only the people of Anambra West but also Anambra East. He also outlined important projects in Anambra East that requires urgent attention of the federal government.
He stated, “Construction of Aguleri federal highway at Enugu-Otu/Mkpunando-Echengwa highway connecting Kogi State is important road network, which will ease the people of Anambra East going to Kogi rather than passing through Anambra West or Enugu State, another federal highway from Onitsha that passes through Aguleri-Ayemelum-Adani to Nsukka in Enugu State is very necessary, all these are very crucial project that was overlooked by past national assembly members from the constituency”
“As a young youth who’s aspiring the office of Federal House of Representatives, I am going to bring this projects in these constituency done and many more within 4 years of my stay in the national assembly, the youthful voice of the 21st century must be heard, he added.
