Akwaeke Francis Chidozie Okoye, candidate of the Young Progressives Party (YPP), has observed that Njikoka 1 state constituency is currently being misrepresented and under-represented in the Anambra State House of Assembly.
Okoye alleged that the incumbent lawmaker has plunged the constituency into what he termed legislative backwardness and stagnation.
The YPP assembly candidate who made the observation at Divine Mercy Orphanage Amawbia on Thursday shortly after donating some items to the inmates of the orphanage in commemoration of his 36th birthday, said he was in the race to change the stereotypes and negative political narratives of Njikoka 1 state constituency come 2019.
He said he was well rooted in the grassroots as well as in good stead to floor the incumbent representative and candidates of other political parties in the 2019 state assembly elections for Njikoka 1 state constituency.
Okoye noted that about 50 indigent students from Enugwu-Ukwu, Enugwu-Agidi and Nawfia took delivery of free JAMB forms on the platform of his scholarship schemes aimed at rescuing the constituency from its current educational backwardness.
Apart from the purchase of JAMB forms, he was also giving scholarships to indigent university students as well as assisting over 500 widows to have means of livelihood and fend for their families just as he mentioned that in no distant time he would kick-off his Oyi/Umunri soccer competition to harness raw talents for export.
The YPP candidate however emphasized that machinery had been set in motion to ensure that his votes were not stolen by the incumbent representative or other candidates because he was optimistic that he would win the state assembly elections for Njikoka 1 state constituency next year.
