The leadership of the apex youth body in Imo North Senatorial district, known as Congress Of Okigwe Zone Youths Assembly (COZYA) has endorsed the aspiration of Hon Chikwem Onuoha to represent the zone at the senate.
The National President of the Central Youth body in the zone, Comrade Odinakachi Onweni who made the declaration while presenting their endorsement letter to Hon Chikwem Onuoha on Sunday, 5th of July 2020 at his Country home in Umuaro Isiala Mbano LGA, pointed out that the apex youth body after a detailed study of all the aspirants in the race, collectively resolved to throw their supports behind Hon Chikwem Onuoha, arguing that he is the best among the aspirants.
Onweni who called for one-minute silence for the peaceful repose of the soul of late Comrade Chima Njoku, however, maintained that the entry of Chikwem Onuoha on the platform of the All Progressives Congress has tilted the balance of power in his direction, stressing that he has all it takes to win the election for the APC.
He further described Chikwem Onuoha as a true Democrat who strongly believes in service with integrity and total dedication to the welfare of his people.
According to Comrade Onweni who was flanked by all the National Executives of the apex youth body, “Hon. Chikwem Onuoha’s desire to serve, his love for his people, his experience, age, and his charisma set him apart,”
“He will make a good senator for our people. He is recognized and respected. He is not a baby politician. He won’t use public funds for his personal use, he is fit and proper. He knows what the senatorial district needs, the plights of the people, and the need to deepen legislative empowerment and proactive representation are things he has promised us.”
“The constituency projects would be 100% people’s own, the people of Okigwe zone would be involved in all the processes and see that what is voted for would be used for the benefit of the district, these and other vital qualities made us rally round you.”
In his speech, Hon. Chikwem Onuoha who is a top contender in the forthcoming bye-election said his aim is for a massive transformation of Okigwe zone if voted into the Senate, adding that as a tested hand, he would not only bring legislative transformation into the district but impact lives of the constituents.
The former Deputy Chief of Staff in the State argued that the vital position of Okigwe Zone requires a direct serious approach to issues that concern the collective development of the zone, noting that inclusive governance, special cultivation of representative- constituents relationship and realistic approach to the needs of the Zone will be his watchword.
” I m experienced in the legislative nuances and possessed the required negotiating skills required for a senator in the 21st century to attract dividends of democracy to his people and I promised never to disappoint my people.”
“My brothers, you are not the only group that endorsed me, if I m elected, I will never be a pushover at the senate because the conditions of Okigwe zone is tormenting me.”
