People Have Got Back Their Power On Legislative Representation...Tochukwu Okere


The people of Owerri Federal Constituency gathered yesterday, 16th of April, 2023 to regain in totality, what is now seen as the political renaissance  of the people in the democratic history of the Constituency in particular, and Imo State in general.
 
The grand event, which was tagged 'Town Hall Meeting/CONSTITUENCY BRIEFING, became the biggest political gathering in the history of legislative  representation, where eminent personalities from all works of life and in all strata of the society were in attendance 
.
Traditional Rulers, President Generals of communities, the women and youth groups, political figureheads, sociocultural stakeholders, academic bigwigs and political leaders were present, not only to grace the occasion, but also be part of the brainstorming of the legislative mission of their House Rep member ELECT to the Green Chambers of the National Assembly. 

In his special address, which contains his mission statement, Owerri Federal constituency House of Representative Member Elect, Hon Sir Tochukwu Chinedum Okere said with robust emphasis: 'I am most happy and fulfilled to welcome you, the good people of Owerri Federal Constituency to this special and historic gathering. 

In all honesty and high sense of patriotism, words can not express my deep feelings of joy and gratitude to you all for your overwhelming demonstration of love and confidence in me, which resulted to the landslide electoral victory I had against my opponents at the just concluded general election of 25th, February, 2023'.

Giving more light to the reason for the gathering, Hon Sir Okere continued: 
'I wish to start my speech by re-echoing some of the very words that gave you the confidence to give me your votes.

I promised to break the jinx of our former legislators, who hardly consult our people after elections or even attempt to carry us along in their legislative representation.
Thus, pushing for laws and motions that do not affect our people directly or indirectly, and  attracting Constituency projects that are niether needed by our people nor a pressing requirement by us.

For the first time in the political history of Owerri Federal Constituency, an elected legislator has deemed it pertinent to seek the opinions, expectations and collective desires of his people to form the central essence of his legislative targets in the Green Chambers of the National Assembly.

Distinguished members of Owerri Federal Constituency ibem, I am sure you have not forgotten my promises during the campaign periods.

I told you that I have no godfather or any other political figurehead that is greater than umunne m,  nde Owerri Federal Constituency and our residents through whose votes I stand today to profoundly thank, appreciate and reassure you immensely as your member elect for House of Representatives.
 
I told you that the entire people of Owerri Federal Constituency would form the nucleus of my legislative representation and oversights functions.

I told you that the collective desires and interests of the people shall be the focal point and cardinal projects of my legislative mission to Abuja. 


Today, I have come to formally thank you all for your votes, prayers, financial and material supports'.

To the astonishment of the top and under dogs, the cream of the society present at the Town Hall meeting, Tochukwu Okere reiterated: 'To bring to my People all facets of benefits from this singular political investment you have made by voting for me to represent you at the lower Chamber of the National Assembly, I will see to it that all towns/communities in this Federal Constituency, hosting any Federal institution enjoys unstoppable and steady CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY from such Federal institutions and Agencies domiciled in their ancestral domains. 

For the youths of Owerri Federal Constituency whose concern affects me most, I have already directed our Constituency staff to resume the process of legislative impact delivery to the people. This Special Staff in our Constituency offices shall resume a duty of collecting CVs from our young and productive citizens, who need employment immediately after our inauguration in the month of June this year.

The CVs, when collected, shall be seamlessly sorted out and carefully kept. Nde ebekanyi, this will assist my ambition to assume a responsibility towards seeking employment opportunities for the young graduates and skillful men and women in Owerri Federal Constituency and contacting them with ease without any form of favouritism. 

On infrastructural developments, the House of Rep member Elect assured: 'I want to assure you once again that all Federal projects, which are appropriated to any town or community in Owerri Federal Constituency must get to that destination without Hiccups previously standing against  infrastructural developments. 

Every segment of our federal constituency must feel the positive presence of the Federal government within these four years of my legislative service to my people. This is not only a political promise, but also a dependable assurance. 

As promised during my campaign to operate a tripatite Constituency offices, which is part of my commitment to render deserved services to my People, I wish to inform you that I have already put them in place. We have Constituency offices located opposite ShopRite along Egbu Road serving Owerri Municipal and Owerri North for now while that of Owerri West is located opposite Mango Bus Stop along Nekede/Ihiagwa Road  respectively. 
These Constituency Offices are all functional. I appeal to our people who might not afford to reach me in Abuja for any legislative assistance, to endeavour to access any of these constituency offices for immediate and prompt response.

To bring to my People all facets of benefits from this singular political investment you have made by voting for me to represent you at the lower Chamber of the National Assembly, I will see to it that all towns/communities in this Federal Constituency, hosting any Federal institution enjoys unstoppable and steady CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY from such Federal institutions and Agencies domiciled in their ancestral domains'.

The people of Owerri Federal Constituency expressed immense joy as the concluded that Hon Tochukwu Okere was God sent.
