In a few decades I have been on the sojourn through this terrestrial terrain, I have always been captivated by few outstanding individuals within my environment who have banked solely on their visions and abilities to create possibilities out of the margins of impossibilities. Such special individuals are rare and they illuminate the society, inspiring hope, optimism and determination among the populace
Interestingly and deservedly, the Distinguished Senator Ekwunife has cut that figure of a rare personality. She has long earned my respect and admiration for the audacious courage she has demonstrated in creating new realities and possibilities in the sphere of political representation in Nigeria. This is a woman who had been on the receiving end of malicious attacks from those who feel threatened by her meteoric rise in Nigeria’s political space yet she has remained focused, undaunted and never distracted.
By dints of total dedication to duty Mama Anambra has built a formidable and enviable political reputation which has consistently thrashed and silenced her detractors as she remains persistently committed to her personal political ideals of tackling the most pressing social needs of her people by provision of road infrastructures, economic tools for fighting abject poverty, facilitation of employment opportunities, equipping schools with educational materials, modern shelters to the homeless, solar powered boreholes for easy access to clean water for the people of her constituency and to mention but a few.
It’s solely based on Madam Projects’ numerous records and antecedents that PDP Delegates for the Primary Election which has been slated to take place on June 26th 2021, should endeavour to fulfil the expectations of the good people of Anambra state and its residents by picking Senator Uche Ekwunife as the party’s flagbearer in the November 6th governorship election.
With Iyom as the Governor of Anambra state, we can be sure to make a quantum progress in all key sectors of the economy considering her background as a financial expert. Oji Uno Eme Ogo is a lioness who can never be satisfied with nothing less than giving the best governance to the people of Anambra state just like she has been doing in the National Assembly ever since she was elected. The Igbo-Ukwu born Senator is a bastion of progress and surely, such progress we are witnessing in Anambra Central Senatorial District can be replicated in the State when she becomes the Governor.
