A former member of the Anambra State House of Assembly Hon. Ejiofor Ebele Leonard has said that Anaocha one state constituency is no longer being represented well enough to attract state government presence to communities in the constituency.
The ex-member of the state legislature who represented the constituency in the fifth assembly on the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) stated that it was no longer news that the constituents had continued to remonstrate what he termed poor representation of Anaocha one state constituency at the moment accusing the incumbent member of being insensitive to the needs of the communities making up the constituency.
Ejiofor who spoke with journalists at Neni Anaocha local government area on Wednesday concerning his ambition to return to the State House of Assembly on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), stated that “in my own community Adazi-Nnukwu the member representing the constituency has not done anything; not only in my community but the whole constituency…” He reiterated the fact that the constituency was currently being governed by political inequality and injustice even as he posited that there was no responsible and responsive representation of the constituency at the state assembly currently.
The ex-lawmaker maintained that distribution of wheel-barrows and shovels after three years were not empowerment schemes but an affront to constituents whose mandate was being dragged to the mud by the incumbent member representing the constituency at the state assembly.
According to the former lawmaker, he defected from APGA to PDP due to unresolved issues in his former party adding that he had found solace in PDP and his mission was to recover the mandate of his people to redeem Anaocha one constituency from what he described as poor and inefficient representation by the incumbent.
