- Allege Lawmaker a bench warmer
By Friday Echi
Aboh Mbaise/Ngor Okpala constituents under the auspices of Aboh Mbaise/Ngor Okpala Integrity Group have vowed to stop Hon. Bede Eke representing the Federal Constituency from going to the Green Chamber for the 3rd term. They insisted that his 1st and 2nd outings were a total failure.
They alleged the Lawmaker is a mere bench warmer who neither moved any life-changing motion to the benefit of the Federal Constituency nor done any remarkable empowerment like his colleagues.
In a communiqué signed by the Acting Chairman, Chief Emeka Nworgu and Secretary Barr Uche Ohaeri which was made available to Edge Express, the group also said that those secretly canvassing for Eke’s 3rd term are sycophants and enemies of Aboh Mbaise/Ngor Okpala constituents and should be stopped before they achieve their selfish misguided desires.
“Bede Eke’s achievement is only on social media and pages of newspapers. I challenge his handlers to show us any of his laudable achievements that justify the money he has been receiving for constituency projects.
“They will tell you how humble he is, how friendly he is, but the truth remains that being humble and friendly have nothing to do with effective representation. We prefer having a radical and unfriendly person who can boldly speak for the Federal Constituency and make us proud than a lukewarm lawmaker who only represents his family members, kinsmen, allies, and cronies.
“We cannot fold our hands and watch a pocket of selfish politicians work secretly to return Bede Eke to the green chamber, the era of such is over. We shall do everything within the ambit of the law to protect our dear Federal Constituency from political merchants who are only concerned about their families well being.
“We have started, and are out to stop this 3rd term plan. His predecessor Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha, succeeded because he was vibrant, and represented the Federal Constituency effectively and made us proud, but Bede Eke is a complete opposite of Ihedioha whom he would have followed his footsteps, but rather chose to be a mere bench warmer.
Those deceiving him with 3rd term ticket should know that their plan is dead on arrival and cannot fly.” They further stated.
