My score card in the State assembly.
Clearly, our vote has become a commodity that can be traded with all kinds of material but don’t forget it’s suicidal to trade the future of generation unborn today.
My 2011 Mandate was to safeguard and advance the interests of Anambra West farmers and create an environment conducive to their prosperity; Rural electrification; continuing the Umueze-Anam- Nmiata Road where my predecessor stopped; provision of clean water to our various communities both those accessible by road and those accessible through water; improve the condition of our teachers; providing facilities to NYSC members posted to Anambra west. This has been achieved in substantial measure. My 2015 Mandate was also for empowering the poor and providing job opportunities to those that actually want to work. My 2015 Mandate was for socially inclusive economic growth with a focus on jobs creation, livelihoods and social justice. It was to push forward the commitment made by our party promising “A New Deal for Rural Anambrarians.” My 2015 Mandate was for maintaining peace and security and for fighting the challenges thrown up by poverty, undemocratic, divisive political and social interests. This has been achieved in substantial measure. As Chairman House committee on Police Affairs, Security and Anti-corruption, I can beat my chest that there is 70% decrease in crime rate in Anambra State since we came on board. All the above mentioned social programs are located in my constituency.
The Anambra State house of assembly I serve as majority leader has had an unmatched record when it comes to the passage of significant, historic and path breaking legislation. The score cards of the current Anambra State assembly speaks for itself. Distinguished brothers and sisters experience matters in the business of legislation. Imagine having a House member in ABUJA who cannot head any committee or even deputize a committee chairman.. Ndi-Anambra East and West appointments are made in the national assembly strictly on merits and experience. You can’t be appointed a committee chairman without having experience in national or state legislation for a certain period of time. Anambra east and west did not need a yes-yes member in the national house, we need those who has being fighting the legislative battle for years.
