Hon Chief Benjamin Uwajumogu, on Friday promised massive attraction of federal presence to facilitate rapid economic transformation that will engender development in all autonomous communities of the zone.

He also promised massive employment for the teeming youths, whom he said would form the hinge of his administration if elected. He also revealed that Okigwe people would be at the centre of his decisions and actions.
Addressing a mammoth crowd, comprising the Clergy, Traditional Rulers, Youths and Women from his Umuihi ward of Ihitte-Uboma local government area, who used the occasion of the All Progressives Congress (APC) ward rally to bless him, said the time has come for the area to break the age long jinx of producing an Okigwe senator, noting that since the country?s return to democracy in 1960, nobody from Ihitte-Uboma has had the opportunity to represent the zone.

The Speaker, who used the event to list out his achievements in the area of education, health, agriculture, rural road network, rural electrification, housing, infrastructural development and legislation, said he was being motivated to go to the senate to bring about the change and make a difference in the lives of Okigwe people, while giving everybody a sense of belonging.

He therefore charged the people to troop out en masse to vote for APC for continuity of good governance in the state, noting that it will be unfair to experiment with the zone?s future by voting for inexperienced candidates from the opposition, who will only use the four years to learn the act of lawmaking.
??We need a humble and experienced person to legislate for Okigwe in the senate. Okigwe senate is not an all comers affair. We cannot continue to experiment with or future?? he said.
