APC Chieftain, Sam Onuigbo Rolls out Achievements; adjudges self most qualified to represent his Constituents at the Senate .
The members representing Ikwuano/Umuahia Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Hon Sam Onuigbo has said that before his election into the Green Chambers in 2015, Ikwuano/ Umuahia did not enjoy quality representation commensurate to the votes cast to the officials who earlier represented his constituency.
He explained that it was his election in 2015 that changed the narratives in the areas of provision of infrastructure, education, healthcare delivery, youth employment as well as bringing governance close to his people.
He stated this at Hotel Damgrete, while declaring his intention to run for the seat of the Senate for Umuahia Central Senatorial Zone, currently being occupied by former Governor Theodore Ahamefule Orji.
He therefore appealed to members of the APC in his constituency to as a matter of facing reality to give him the Senatorial ticket for the 2023 election to enable him widen his sterling performances from Ikwuano/ Umuahia to the entire Abia Central.
He said that what propelled his aspiration to a higher political office is the interest of his constituents and the need to achieve all-round transformation of Abia Central senatorial zone which he will stand in for.
He told the audience that the legislative bills on climate change, signed into law by President Mohamadu Buhari was his handiwork, and recalled that his intervention also led to the restoration of several courses that were de-listed from Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike.
He noted that without the restoration of those courses, many Abia children schooling in the university would have been denied the chance to realize their dreams.
Rolling out more achievements, Onuigbo pointed out that his special legislative responsibility and competency was responsible for the award of contract for the construction of Umuahia-Ikwuano-Ikot Ekpene road, which he said, is ongoing.
” If I could do all these while in the House of Representatives,I will do more when I enter the Senate. It is important to place on record that I have conceived and implemented mammoth/colossal projects for the good people of great Ikwuano/Umuahia North/South federal constituency of Abia State during my time as their representative at the House of Representatives.
He said that looking at the lists of his achievements, he has adjudged himself the best and most qualified candidate to be at the Senate for the people of Ikwuano Umuahia Federal Constituency.
“In all honesty, I am the best candidate for this job. Not only that am I visionary in my operations,, effective in my representation , responsive and accessible to my people, my wealth of experience in progressive leadership makes me eminently qualified to stand in for my constituents”, Onuigbo said.
The All Progressive Congress ( APC) Chairman in Abia, Dr Kingsley Ononogbu, in his response described Onuigbo as man of achievements who is also a public administrator.
Ononogbu, who was represented by Hon Grant Nwogu, said APC is ready to rescue Abia State in 2023 from the hands of oppressive leaders who have been holding the State down for more than two decades.
The event witnessed the presence of top APC leaders in Abia State drawn from six LGAs that make up Abia Central. END
