House of Assembly member-elect and incumbent lawmaker representing Ihiala 1 state constituency in the 6th Anambra legislature Hon. Barr. Chidi Livinus Udemadu has assured the people of his constituency that they would witness more constituency projects as well as other democracy dividends as he embarks on his second term journey to the 7th Anambra assembly.
Udemadu who disclosed this in Amorka his country home at the weekend, stated that his constituents stood by him during the March 9th State House of Assembly elections which he said translated to his monumental electoral conquest in the area.
The lawmaker who spoke in an emotion-laden voice alluded to the Bible saying that “the just shall live by faith and that by faith Abraham sacrificed his only son.” He said he sought for re-election and his constituents granted him the humble request to represent them the second time at the state assembly.
According to him, his political party, the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) won landslide in Ihiala local government area, attributing the success of the party at the polls to the good governance being provided by the Obiano administration. He noted that the victory of all APGA candidates in Ihiala was an eloquent testimony that the people were solidly supporting the party in all sincerity.
He said the just concluded state assembly election was the fairest and freest he ever witnessed as there were no molestations, no intimidations and the issue of people coming to share money to buy votes were not seen because according to the lawmaker, people were allowed to vote according to their conscience .
Udemadu further stressed that people were allowed to express their feelings freely because in Uli, Amorka and other parts of Ihiala local government area, APGA floored other political parties with very wide margin, emphasising that the development showed that people were at home with APGA and were equally ready to pitch in with the negotiating power of the entire southeast and Anambra state in particular.
The lawmaker who obviously would be a ranking member of the 7th state assembly said he was still very perplexed with the level of support and solidarity his constituents showed him during the elections assuring them that he would meet their expectations as well as surpass his first term accomplishments through addressing critical needs of his constituency.
