A chieftain and stakeholder in Okigwe zone, Chief John Enyogasi, aka OK 2000 has said that for the zone to get it right in the forthcoming senatorial by-election, a thoroughly experienced person that knows the workings of the House should be chosen to stand in for the election.
According to him, Okigwe zone has gone far behind the other two zones in the State, and should select an old grown politician that will not go there for House training, or becomes a bench warmer.
Disclosing this to journalists during a press chat, recently in his office, Owerri, Ok 2000, as he is popularly called, stated that Okigwe zone needs to come together in a town hall meeting and bring out a candidate based on the decision of the people, so that when the election comes the chosen candidate will emerge.
He further noted that achievements of candidate that would occupy such an exalted position matters, so that the zone would have confidence in such personality.
He added that for a candidate to stand in for a zone, such person should have gone through the training from State Assembly, Federal House of Representatives, or have represented the zone in one capacity or the other.
More so, he appealed to the State government to allow the zone to choose the right candidate of their choice, positing that representation is a matter of a person knowing exactly what his people really want and not what he thinks it should be.
Chief Enyogasi, also called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), to as a matter of urgency fix a date for the by-election for the Okigwe Senatorial seat, so that the zone would have a representative at the Senate.
He further stressed that since the death of their former Senator Ben Uwajumogu, the zone has been missing what is due to them, in terms of sharing the national cake.
In his own remark, Hon Zik Martins Nnadozie stated that the zone needs one who would immediately fit in and know the workings of the House alongside his contemporaries, and not a neophyte who would go and start to learn the trade.
