Members of a socio-political pressure group – Bende Initiative for Equity and Good Governance has once again called on the good people of Bende Federal Constituency to vote massively for the candidate of the Young Progressive Party (YPP) in the 2019 general election in Bende Federal Constituency.
In a chat with news men over the weekend at Uzuakoli, the leader of the group Comrade Iyke Okorie stated that: “the young man can be trusted to effectively represent Bende Federal Constituency, considering his very rich academic backgroud, honesty, integrity and God-fearing disposition to life issues; as well as his vast legislative experience in the National Assembly, having worked with late Senator Uche Chukwumeriji as his Technical Assistant/Political Adviser. During this period Dr Charles Obinna Chukwunaru initiated, recommended and helped execute numerous community/constituency projects in the entire Abia North, from the office of the late Senator Uche Chukwumerije. However, many of these communities were not even aware that Dr Charles was behind the projects as he is not one to grandstand or seek for vain-glory as according to him, he was only doing his job.”
For his hometown Amankwo Uzuakoli, according to Comrade Okorie, Dr Chukwunaru executed the best galvanized, solar powered clean drinking water project which is still functional till date.
Comrade Okorie Further revealed that over the years, Dr. Charles has been in the fore front for the establishment of a Federal Polytechnic in Bende LGA and he defended this position at the Senate public hearing in Senate chambers early this year in the presence of Senator T.A.Orji, Senator Mao Ohuabunwa and many others.
Iyke Okorie aslo pointed out that the MDG Earth Dam Water Project which was awarded to be built at Uzuakoli since 2007 but was abandoned till date will receive effective and immediate attention from Dr Charles Chukwunaru who has been fighting for the reactivation and completion of the project, and that he will surely complete the project when elected into office as Honourable Member representing Bende Federal Constituency come 2019. This water project when completed, according to Comrade Okorie will provide the entire Bende South with clean drinking water as well as all year round farming, which will boost agricultural growth and massive economic developent in area.
Okorie strongly highlighted Dr Chukwunaru’s rich experience in the national assembly, which Bende people can not afford to miss as it will take the other candidates over 8 years to acquire such experience. Whereas, Dr. Charles will hit the ground running as soon as is sworn into office because he is very conversant with the inner workings and legislative activities and processes in the National Assembly.
Comrade Iyke Okorie concludes that “Dr. Charles Obinna Chukwunaru is the right person for the job after 34 years of our brothers from Umunna holding the position; it is therefore time to allow the other part of Bende LGA (lkwuisii people) to produce the next Federal House of Representative Member. And I Thank God for the massive support coming from the entire lkwuisii and lots of support from Umunna people who agrees that lkwuisii should be given the chance and opportunity to produce Dr. Charles Chukwunaru irrespective of party affiliation. We thank our brothers from Umunna for their understanding, we pledge to continue working for sustainable development of our dear Bende LGA.
We stand for Equity and good governance.”
