Candidate of the Young Progressives Party (YPP) for Aguata 2 Constituency State House of Assembly election, Comrade Emma Ezeokafor, has assured the people of the constituency that his representation at the state assembly would be anchored on fear of God, if elected into office to prove his mettle.
Ezeokafor, a grassroot crusader and mobilizer, said with the way and manner in which the country was being governed, it required people with proven integrity as well as intrepid enough to speak the truth irrespective of whose ox is gored.
The youth galvaniser who spoke with journalists at Akpo in Aguata local government area of Anambra state on Wednesday, emphasized that he would bring his religious background into the representation of his people at the state assembly.
Although he acknowledged that those who have represented the constituency did tremendously well, he said he would introduce what he termed consultative representation emphasising that the people must be major stakeholders in the scheme of things especially as it concerns account of stewardship to his constituents on quarterly basis.
Ezeokafor maintained that his constituents would not be forlorned if he was elected into office but he would ensure that there was a platform for discussions and cross-pollination of ideas with his people for them to assess his performance as well as obtain first hand information on felt-needs of his constituency.
On his assessment of level of federal government presence in Anambra state, the YPP candidate observed that Anambra was a minority party state which according to him was the remote reason the state was facing what he described as diminished federal government presence.
Ezeokafor further explained that the country currently has an APC-led federal government and that it was only natural that the government at the centre would focus attention on APC-led state governments to the detriment of minority party states like Anambra where APGA was the ruling party.
