Head, Media and Strategic Communications to Senator Dr Ifeanyi Ubah, CON, Hon Kamen Chuks Ogbonna has stated that Sen Ubah’s resolve to bettering the lives of Ndi Anambra South Senatorial District is top notch and with a committed spirit.
According to Hon Ogbonna, “the story of representation in Anambra South Senatorial District took a different turn with the advent of Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Ubah in the red chamber in 2019. In his avowed determination to bring about a drastic change in the fortunes of the people of his zone, the senator took off from day one with a clear vision of what needs to be done in order to change the face of representation in the district. This he commenced by throwing his doors open to the people of the senatorial zone in a classic case of ‘Open Door Representation’.
In keeping with his avowed commitment towards an open door policy of representation, the Senator representing Anambra South Senatorial District, Senator Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah CON, on Monday 22nd January 2024, held the 1st Constituency briefing for the year 2024 at the Authority 91.9 FM Nnewi.
During the well-publicised and eagerly anticipated constituency briefing that witnessed an unprecedented avalanche of calls from both constituents as well as other persons resident in Anambra State, Senator Ubah brought the listening audience up to speed on his activities so far at the 10th Senate as well as the upcoming projects and programs for the year.
“The Senate Committee Chairman on Petroleum Downstream reassured his audience of his firm commitment towards the consolidation of his then outstanding achievements during the 9th Senate”.
“You may recall that Senator Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah’s Midas Touch during the 9th Senate led to the delivery of several impactful bills and projects with at least one project each in all the 119 wards in Anambra South Senatorial District.
A truly remarkable feat for a then first-time Senator elected on the platform of a minority party, which he capped with the groundbreaking Deep Offshore and Inland Basin Production Sharing Contract, the PSC Bill that got signed into law by the former president Buhari and yields billions in yearly revenue accruals to the coffers of the federal government”.
In addition to the several projects that the Senator facilitated in the Senatorial District, his Operation Light up and Secure Anambra South Project also led to the delivery of solar-powered streetlights in all the wards in the district.
“The Senator who recently joined the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), as part of his effort aimed at attracting bigger dividends of democracy to his Senatorial District, has also since upped the ante by delving into the security challenges facing the District despite being a legislator”.
“His efforts in this regard have also witnessed massive success, especially in Nnewi and its environs, and are hugely responsible for the mass return witnessed this yuletide in the Senatorial District”.
“Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Ubah, CON, informed the people of his Senatorial District about the change in date of the proposed empowerment program tagged the “Mother Of All Empowerment” program which is now slated to take place from the 20th of February to the 28th of February 2024 across the seven local government areas that make up the Senatorial District”.
“During the Constituency briefing, Senator Ubah also brought his audience up to speed on his collaborative efforts with various community stakeholders through which he is currently extending his hugely successful security architecture to various towns even beyond his Senatorial District”.
“Various towns like Igboukwu, EnuguAgidi, Abatete, Alor Nnobi, Awka Etiti, Ukpor, etc., have benefitted or are in the process of benefiting from the Senator’s laudable security initiative even as more towns are reaching out for similar engagements with the Distinguished Senator”.
“Highlight of the programme was the phone-in session during which several callers expressed disgust at some of the recent actions by the state government such as the suspension and intimidation of the traditional rulers that gave him Chieftancy titles in appreciation of his groundbreaking security initiative in the state and the destruction of wares belonging to market women by agents of government enforcing ban on roadside trading while several others also called in to appreciate the Senator for being close to the grassroot and for his politics of development and human capacity building”.
Indeed, when the righteous is in power, the people truly rejoice.
