Enugu State Indigenes dwelling in Anambra North Senatorial zone, have endorsed and vowed to deliver the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate for Anambra North Senatorial seat, Princess Stella Oduah, in the February 25 poll.
The people endorsed Senator Oduah at their large meeting which held at Sharon House GRA Inland Town, Onitsha North LGA, Anambra State.
Addressing the Coal City indigenes, the Director General (DG), Campaign Organisation for Senator Stella Oduah, Hon. Eucheria Azodo, expressed her delight for the people of Enugu State for gathering in their numbers.
She described Enugu people as decent people, reminding them that she was born in Enugu and her father was a coal miner.
She added that the fact that Oduah attended her Secondary Education in Enugu, made her partially indigene of Enugu State.
“Distinguished Senator Oduah is currently representing Anambra North in the Red Chamber. She is a ranking member in the Senate. So, she wants to go back .
“What she attracted in Anambra North is enormous. She built a lot of roads, empowered so many youths and adults especially women and widows. She equally sponsored several bills of which the current one is at the final stage.
“She built a lot of houses for people, mostly less privileged ones. Through her influence, general Hospital Onitsha is now a Federal medical center, including scholarship scheme she offered to youths who are currently studying in various institutions.
“More so, Senator Oduah established various skills acquisition centres where youths and adults are learning different vocations. If I continue to mention her achievements, we cannot leave here today.
“Therefore, this time around, when she goes back, she will do more than what she has done. I am soliciting that you people should come out en masse and vote for Senator Oduah on February 25, 2023,” she pleaded.
Briefing journalists shortly after the meeting, the Chairman of Enugu State Indigenes living in Anambra North, Mr. Onyekachukwu Paul Nnebo, said the activities and achievements of Senator Stella Oduah are verifiable, explaining that nobody in Anambra North will deny that the senator is working assiduously.
Similarly, Mr. Nwodo Christian Ikechukwu, the Vice Chairman of Onitsha textile Market (Ogbo-abada), said that the support for Oduah was because of her outstanding achievements.
Equally speaking, one of the patrons of the group, Mr. Geofry Akwuke a.k.a Ezeudo of Umuna testified that Senator Oduah had distinguished herself from other politicians.
“She built roads, offered scholarships and empowered teeming unemployed youths,” he said.
He urged Senator Oduah to always remember Enugu State Indigenes, and to help change the attitude of Anambra Indigenes who deprive non-indigenes the right of contesting for Market Chairmanship.
