The Speaker who described the delegation as men and women of peace expressed the need for leaders and politicians to conduct themselves in manners that will not throw the State into confusion in the run up to the 2023 elections and expressed his gratitude to the stakeholders for finding him worthy of such kind gesture of theirs even though he had resolved to rest from politics for now.
Presenting the Expression of Interest and Nomination forms to the Speaker earlier, one of the leaders of the delegation, Pastor Emeka Inyama, said although Rt Hon Chinedum Enyinnaya Orji is eminently qualified to vie for the office of Governor as the youth rightly demanded but that the Ikwuano/Umuahia Stakeholders have come to urge him to contest for the Federal House of Representatives “so as to continue speaking for us having done very well as both a Lawmaker and Speaker”.
He therefore urged the Speaker to accept their clarion call to run for House of Representatives.
On his part, the member representing Umuahia South State Constituency at the Abia State House of Assembly, and a member of the stakeholders forum, Barr Jerry Uzosike, had urged the Speaker to strongly consider their request as he remains undoubtedly qualified to vie for any office in the land.
