“We want perfect representatives and Senator Victor Umeh, Dozie Nwankwo, Pete Ibida and other APGA candidates have been representing us real good and I am here to encourage them to keep up the good work,” Okeke said.

During the long campaign tour at St. Mark’s Parish Enugwu-Agidi, St. Michael’s Anglican Church Nawfia, and Enugwu-ukwu village square respectively, the senatorial candidate for Anambra Central Senatorial district, Victor Umeh stressed the fact that APGA is the only party that have given ndi Igbo hope.

“Let us try and make our party stand firm. For the past one year l have been in the senate, l have always emphasized on the need to give back to ndi Igbo whatever belongs to them, because we are Nigerians and are part of those rebuilding and bringing great development to the nation. I really love ndi Igbo and l will do my best to fight for your rights. I will never discriminate.” Umeh promised.

Talking about his achievements for the past one year. Chief  Umeh said that he had  moved a motion to ban the imprisonment of children less than 16 years of age, and received an award for moving the best motion in the entire House of Assembly in 2018.

“My points and arguments have made me a critical voice in the senate. Federal government has approved the bill moving the motion for the construction of an Eastern Rail line. I single handedly sponsored a bill to bring a new federal university to the state and that is the Federal University of Education Aguleri,” Umeh informed.

Chief  Umeh has also set up a scholarship scheme for Anambra Central, and is currently paying the fees of 70 indigent students from their first to final year in any university of their choice.
