TONY Chukwuelue is the Social Democratic Party (SDP) candidate for Anambra Central Senatorial Zone for the 2019 general elections. He is a lawyer of 27 years and was a chief of staff at the National Assembly.

Chukwuelue is contesting for the position of Senate for the first time. He said the people of his zone , Anambra Central for the past three years, lost democracy dividends because of legal battle.

On why he is vying for the senate position in the 2019 general election, Chukwuelue said that the All Progressives Grand Alliance, the Peoples Democratic Party and the All Progressives Congress messed up the senatorial chances of Anambra Central for three years due to legal war.

“Anambra Central was the only senatorial zone in the entire country that lost three years fighting in the court. In the first year, the federal government budgeted six trillion, second year, seven trillion while in the third year, the budget was eight trillion. What it meant was that Anambra Central lost a chunk of democracy dividends, infrastructure and what have you as a result of litigation.

“The same gladiators who made the senatorial zone lose three years at the National Assembly are coming back to contest. They should be retired and sent to political exile because they have caused Anambra Central monumental damage.
“Any right-thinking person from Anambra-central should not be thinking of voting PDP, APGA or APC, the only way to go is SDP … ”

Chukwuelue said that he worked as a consultant to senators and legislators and has comparative advantage over other candidates because of his proficiency to draft bills and motions.

He disclosed that some of the best bills being implemented in the country were written by him. The Nigerian Diaspora Bill which President Muhammadu Buhari was implementing currently was written by him as well as a host of other bills. He added that the job in the Senate was not about political heavyweights but about who was more qualified and competent.

Chukwuelue said that he had also initiated what he termed National Essential Commodities Bill to compel federal government to subsidise goods and services the common man needs to access and make them affordable.

He promised to sponsor bills that will be beneficial to the people of his zone and the nation as well. He assured that if elected into office in 2019, he would give power back to the people of Anambra-central senatorial zone.

To the people, Chukwuelue urged them to vote for him. He said that any vote for the aforementioned political parties could result to a reenactment of another legal battle and possibly Anambra Central might lose another four years this time.
