AFA IGBO EFUNA: Economic Recovery of Ndị-Igbo remains my mission in the Nigeria's Senate - Ifeanyi Ubah.

The Founder and chief Promoter of Afa Igbo Efuna Movement, Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah has said that effective and people-oriented representation that will carry the people along and solve the problems of Anambra South Senatorial zone will be his priority if elected.

The Anambra South Senator hopeful, Dr. Ubah made these known while addressing the press. According to him, "we have Ihiala Local Lovernment Area in Anambra South with rich mineral resources that must be tapped for development, we have Nnewi South Local Government Area with lots of solid mineral and green vegetation. Ekwusigo and Nnewi North share the commercial hub of auto spare parts in the country and have small medium and large scale industries and the problem is lack of stable power supply.

"No business or commercial venture can succeed without power and as a matter of necessity, I will present the urgent need to have a dry port in Nnewi on the floor of the Senate in order to move the ultra modern Nnewi Main Market to the next level. When you visit Orumba North, Orumba South and Aguata local government areas you will see palm plantations and oil palm produce that can be accessed and assembled for export.

Dr. Ubah, who is also the Chairman of Anambra State FA went further to maintain that the problem in Nigeria is that of monolithic economy hinged on petroleum alone, "It was palm oil that the late Michael Ọkpara used in developing the old Eastern region during the First Republic and today, where are those oil palm plantations? We can form irrigation cutting across the Uranshi River in Ihiala and link other tributaries in Orumba North and South council areas, as well as Aguata.

The President Africa Football Revolution Initiative further said that the problems facing his Senatorial District were catalysed by the fact that previous and present representations did not look inward inside the Senatorial District to understand what the people need, which would have impacted positively on the man in Amaesi, Osumuoghu, Owerezukala, Ihembosi or Okija.

"I will take part in making laws that will benefit our people, sponsor bills and motions for the betterment of the country and Anambra South in particular. It is my vision that after four years of my representation in the Senate, Anambra South will be better off in terms of infrastructural development, youth empowerment, educational foundation and above all, socio-economic growth of my people," Dr. Ubah concluded.
