As the good people of Ohaji/Egbema-Oguta-Oru West federal constituency file out on Saturday, tomorrow,February 25, to elect their next representative in the House of Representatives Abuja, one candidate that will readily come to the minds of voters, is Hon Collins Ezenwa Ilo of the Labour Party.
Ezenwa has wisely keyed into the current movement for a New Nigeria being spearheaded by the Labour Party and its presidential candidate, Mr Peter Obi.
The Labour Party candidate for Ohaji-Egbema-Oguta-Oru West federal constituency has come up a Seven-point legislative agenda painstakingly designed and articulated to change the narratives in the federal constituency.
These well-thoughtout programmes range from education and culture , skill and vocational training, human capacity building, agricultural development, poverty eradication, security of lives and property, and grassroots development.
It is hoped that the successful implementation of the above programmes by Hon Ezenwa if elected, will undoubtedly re-write the history of the federal constituency and lift her into the realm of progressive constituencies in Imo, Southeast and Nigeria.
Undoubtedly, Ohaji-Egbema-Oguta-Oru West federal constituency has a lot of potentials for massive agriculture.
This underscores Ezenwa’s prioritisation of agriculture in his seven-point legislative agenda.
Ezenwa sees education and skills or vocational training as quite germane to addressing the nagging issue of unemployment and youth restiveness in the federal constituency.
As an oil-producing federal constituency, education remains vital to human capacity building, and reorientation of the people.
Skills and vocational training are strategic for empowering the constituents especially, the youths, as well as enhancing their employability in oil companies and other sectors of the economy.
These factors will in turn, help to engender peace and security in communities in the area because when the youths are meaningfully engaged, employed or empowered, chances are that they will less likely involve in crimes of violent activities.
This coming elections obviously provide an ample opportunity for the people of Ohaji-Egbema-Oguta-Oru West federal constituency to break away from the ugly past; to reject those toyed with the collective welfare of the people and used the platforms given to them to serve, to shortchange and oppress their own people.
The election is an opportunity to choose a man of distinguished character and mien, respectful, focused, accessible and competent.
That man is no other than Hon Ezenwa Collins Ilo, the candidate of the Labour Party for Ohaji-Egbema-Oguta-Oru West federal constituency come Saturday, February 25 Presidential and National Assembly elections.
