A group known as Aboh Mbaise/Ngor Okpala Integrity Group has berated the lawmaker representing Aboh Mbaise/Ngor Okpala Federal Constituency, Hon. Bede Eke, insisting his five years scorecard is very ridiculous and deserved no commendation.
The group who spoke through its acting chairman, Chief Emeka Nworgu, in a press statement, said they were shocked that a lawmaker who has spent 5years, could boldly publish what he claimed to be constituency projects, adding that even scorecards of some State Assembly lawmakers who are first-timers, surpass the purported scorecard of a Federal lawmaker.
“It important we remind Bede Eke that his scorecard is ridiculous and deserves no commendation. This is one truth his proteges and praise singers will not tell him. He is performing below expectations compared to his colleagues who are first-timers.
“We are not happy that the man we voted in to represent us is performing far below expectation, and has the audacity to publish what he termed “physical constituency projects,” projects many state lawmakers have done in their constituencies within one year in office not even his colleagues at the Green Chamber.
“Even some of the projects were discriminatory to benefit his proteges and cronies, which can be testified across the two local governments he represents.
“Again, your claim of facilitating jobs for 72 indigent youths only exists on the pages of the newspaper. Who are the 72 indigents? From which LGAs, or autonomous community?
“For the records, we pray for you to succeed and are not against your purported “rising profile in the nation’s politics” as claimed by your proteges, such can only be said about vibrant and outspoken lawmakers, not bench warmers. All we are saying is that those who elected you deserve effective representation.
“You should wake-up, strive harder to attract developmental projects across the two local governments like your predecessor Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha did.
His laudable achievements are there to speak for him unlike you whose only focus is on how to get re-elected come 2023.
“We can assure you that we wouldn’t be deterred with the faceless group your praise singers are labeling us, but rather work within the ambit of the law to stop your re-election.”
