FORMER Executive Assistant to the Governor of Anambra State on Community Liaison, currently serving as Special Assistant to the Governor Obiano on Community Relations, Prince Eze Chianumba is set to resign ahead of 2023 general elections.
He made this known to newsmen during his visit to the office of Chief of Staff to the Governor, Mr. Primus Odili at Government House, Awka.
According to him, his resignation is due to recent amended Electoral Act, signed by President Buhari that all public office holders are to resign from office on or before 12 months to the election.
Prince Chianumba in his further remarks to the Chief of Staff decried the age long backwardness of his constituency (Anambra West) on lack of infrastructural amenities, especially the road linking Anam-Kogi federal highway which if completed, will become the fastest route to Nigeria’s capital territory, Abuja, in the whole of southern Nigeria.
He said, ” we have suffered and we’re going to stop our suffering by ourselves.
We have patiently waited for a non Anambra West indigene to put a stop to our suffering, but the long awaited time is overdue. We can’t be hoping for other constituents to help ameliorate our problem while theirs is deteriorating.
To fast track infrastructural development in Anambra West, an Anambra West indigene must represent ndi Anambra West in the green chamber. Two major problems in my constituency are road infrastructure and electricity. It’s only when we get onye Anambra West elected that these problems will be solved.
“Recall that the partial construction on the Anam-Kogi highway and electrification was done when an Anambra West indigene was elected in 2007, under the watch of Ralph Okeke, which was later abandoned immediately he left office as a federal lawmaker.
It’s time to revive the same spirit of getting onye Anambra West elected and rejuvenate the infrastructural development ahead”.
He also expressed readiness to represent actively, not only the people of Anambra West but also Anambra East, even as he outlined the needed projects in Anambra East that require attention of federal government.
“Construction of Aguleri federal highway at Enugu-Otu/Mkpunando-Echengwa highway connecting Kogi State is an important road network, which will ease the people of Anambra East going to Kogi, rather than passing through Anambra West or Enugu State. Another federal highway from Onitsha that passes through Aguleri-Ayemelum-Adani to Nsukka in Enugu State is very necessary.
All these are very crucial projects that was overlooked by past National Assembly members from the constituency”
“As a young youth who’s aspiring to the House of Representatives, I am going to bring these projects in this constituency done and many more within four years if elected into National Assembly. The youthful voice of the 21st century must be heard. Ka youth jekene.”
