I Will Keep Giving My People A Voice’, Hon. Ibe Okwara Osonwa Pledges As He Presents Petition On Behalf Of Dr. Ukpai Eni

The lawmaker representing Arochukwu/Ohafia Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Chief Ibe Okwara Osonwa, says he will carry his people along and give them quality representation.

Osonwa in a chat with our correspondent on Wednesday in Abuja after presenting a petition on behalf of his constituent, Dr. Ukpai Ukpai Eni against the Maritime Academy Oron, Akwa IBOM State, he said: “For years now, I have been yawning to serve my people and an opportunity has come for me to do so. I will do so with everything in me by giving them a good voice here (National Assembly).”

He promised to be humanitarian and egalitarian in nature and be dedicated to the service and defence of the cause of the people of Arochukwu/Ohafia Federal Constituency.

The lawmaker had last month urged the federal government to urgently intervene in the boundary crisis between Isu community in Abia State and Ukwa Community in Cross River State, which left one person dead, with at least 10 others injured.

Moving the motion, Hon. Osonwa prayed that: “A minute silence in honour of Mrs. Mrs. Alade Kalu Elem of Obiezu/Ohabuike of Isu Community be observed by the house.

He urged “the House Committee on Defence to quickly request the set-up of a Peacekeeping Post between the boundary communities to intervene and restore order, peace and normalcy in the affected communities to forestall and prevent the continued loss of lives and properties.

“The National Boundary Commission (NBC), to delineate the boundary that will bring a permanent restoration of peace and tranquillity to the troubled area.

“The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) to intervene with relief materials; including food, clothing and medication for the IDPs.
These prayers were passed and sent to the relevant committees for action.”
