- OWERRI ZONE STUDENTS ENDORSE HON. ONYEWUCHI FOR SENATE
Anyanwu Chinemerem Reports…
Rising from their monthly general meeting on Thursday July 26th, 2018 held at Federal Polytechnic , Nekede. The Owerri Students Association reviewed exhaustively the political situation in Owerri Zone, particularly as it concerns the statement credited to one Mr. Mike Nwachukwu, an Imo East APGA senatorial aspirant in the 2019 election.
After due deliberations, the Association resolved as follows:
That Hon. Ezenwa Onyewuchi has performed creditably well in his representation of Owerri People in the Federal House of Representatives and as such surpassed and broken Legislative jinx and has also re-defined Quality, Effective and Peoples oriented representation.
That Hon. Ezenwa Onyewuchi has made tremendous impacts in the infrastructural development of his Federal Constituency through his numerous Constituency projects.
That there is no community in the three Local Government Areas that make up Owerri Federal Constituency that has not benefitted from “Mr. Empowerment”.
Hon. Ezenwa’s huge drive towards infrastructural development, employment and empowerment has put Owerri in the right map of political growth and representation.
That apart from the huge infrastructural development, Hon. Onyewuchi has impacted positively on the lives of vast majority of his consistituents through his all-inclusive and sustained human capital development and philanthropy. His kindness and humility have gone beyond Owerri Federal Constituency.
That at a time, when Leadership was needed in Owerri, Hon Onyewuchi stood up against all odds and antics of the State Goverment and led in the evacuation of the life threatening refuse dump at Douglas Road Owerri.
That Hon. Onyewuchi is a consummate legislator, bridge builder and humane politician, who takes the downtrodden to heart and meets their needs. He has shown the representation is not about showmanship but rather about development and empowerment.
That his open and transparent leadership and representation are unparalleled and worthy of emulation.
No wonder he stood on the side of Owerri people and moved a motion on the floor of the House on the “Downgrade of Alvan Ikoku University of Education” and also followed it up .
That the sterling leadership of Mr. Empowerment as nicknamed by his Poeope has benefitted the Owerri Federal Constituency, Owerri Zone, Imo State and Nigeria tremendously through sponsoring of quality bills and motions which include urgent rehabilitation/provision of cargo facilities at the Sam Mbakwe International Cargo Airport which he also followed up ,met and invited the Minister incharge to the airport for inspection and approval.
That the Owerri Students nationwide made these observations and have resolved to unreservedly and wholeheartedly support Hon. Francis Ezenwa Onyewuchi’s bid for the senatorial seat of Owerri Zone in 2019 as he has proven that Legislation is about the people.
That we strongly urge him to continue with his bid to contest for Imo East senatorial seat for Owerri Zone.
That we have taken note of the immature display of lack of decorum by the APGA senatorial aspirant in a statement by Mr Mike Nwachukwu, an APGA Owerri senatorial zone aspirant during his declaration that Hon. Onyewuchi is providing weak representation.
In Mike’s Ward of OAU, Hon Onyewuchi has verifiable Projects scattered all over the ward including ;
REHABILITATION AND EQUIPING OF ULAKWO HEALTH CENTRE AT ULAKWO, OWERRI NORTH.
CONSTRUCTION AND FURNISHING OF MODERN CIVIC HALL AT EGBELU OBUBE,
CONSTRUCTION OF A 10,000 CAPACITY SOLAR WATER PROJECT AT TIMBER
MARKET AGBALA/NAZE, OWERRI NORTH LGA.
WATER BORE HOLE AT EGBELU OBUBE OWERRI NORTH.
CONSTRUCTION OF A TRANSFORMER SUB-STATION AT AGBALA and many others.
That Mr. Mike Nwachukwu demonstrated lack of decorum and maturity and should focus more on convincing Ndi Owerri to vote him if he eventually gets the APGA ticket than throwing tantrums at the Owerri Project.
That considering the unwholesome behaviour of name calling and heating up of the political space by the APGA aspirant, we the Owerri Students Association strongly believe that we cannot support Mr Mike Nwachukwu against Hon. Onyewuchi as we believe Nwachukwu has not and cannot offer any policy to address the legitimate grievances of the generality of Owerri people.
That we urge Mr. Mike Nwachukwu to reengineer and retool his political strategies which is a gateway to the expression of vision and mission of securing the welfare of the citizens through ideal tangible programme rather than parochial sentiments that characterized his declaration ceremony.
That we agree that Mr. Mike Nwachukwu has tried unsuccessfully to create the hideous and odious impression that Owerri Zone senatorial seat is up for grabs. We confirm that as an absolute lie.
That we urge Hon. Onyewuchi to remain focused in his service to Owerri people and not to be distracted by some individuals who have been contracted to create confusion amongst our people.
That we uphold that Hon. Onyewuchi’s giant developmental strides are eloquent testimonies of his commitment to the good of our people and they have been recorded on the pristine walls of history.
That because of the the good qualities of Hon. Ezenwa Onyewuchi, we the Owerri Zone students will continue to support him today, tomorrow and always to accomplish his senatorial ambition.
