•Nnamchi visits constituents with gratitude



Communities in Mbu Ward 1 and Ward 2 in Isi-Uzo Local Government, Enugu State, were agog last Saturday as their representative in the National Assembly, Prof. Paul Nnamchi visited the areas to say “Thank you.”

The member representing Enugu East/Isi-Uzo Federal Constituency received large ovation, when he returned to both electoral wards to express appreciation for electorates’ massive votes which he said made him and his political party, Labour Party, win the 2023 general Elections without qualms.

Applauding Nnamchi’s legislative resourcefulness, they noted that their federal constituency had not had effective representation since 1999 as it witnessed in the past eleven months that erudite scholar took over representation of the constituency in the National Assembly.

Ward chairmen, women and youth leaders, stakeholders and the elders of the communities showered praises on the legislator.

They noted that Nnamchi has elevated representation, noting that since 1999 it was only him who remembered to come back to his constituency to show appreciation after passing through election, whereas their previous representatives took their mandates as rights instead of privileges.

Chukwuma Aneke recalled that the first thing Nnamchi did immediately he got to the National Assembly was to present a bill for the establishment of a Federal College of Health Sciences in Mbu, expressing confidence that the lawmaker will also intervene to attract the federal government to construct the Neke-Mbu-Eha Alumona Road which has remained in dire straits for decades.

They recalled that Nnamchi also gave postsecondary scholarships to over 200 students in the federal constituency, noting that with the bill for the establishment of the federal health institution in Mbu, which is ready for public hearing, the legislator has already proposed job creation for the youths and other categories of the indigenes of Mbu, Isi-Uzo, Enugu State and indeed Nigerians.

The woman leader, Mrs. Judith Eze said: “During the election, we swore that despite those who shared money, we rejected them and insisted that the Labour Party must win all elections. Prof did well and celebrated Christmas with us. “We lack teachers in our primary schools, same as desks. Therefore, we would like Prof to see how this lack of infrastructure and teachers could be alleviated for our children going to school.”

Nnamchi lamented that his political opponents dragged the peoples’ mandate to the courts despite the landslide victory that was recorded in the election: “The first thing I did after the court of appeal judgment was to remember that it was you people that voted for me. I started with scholarships because of what I experienced acquiring education after I lost my father at a young age. Those who are beneficiaries of the present scholarships will be the professors of tomorrow that will take over from us.”

He promised to also look into the water problems facing all parts of his constituency, noting that his social contract with the people was to get for them whatever were their due shares in Abuja.
