Spread the love

Arochukwu/Ohafia federal constituency has never had it so good. Hon. Uko Nkole is one of a kind, whose achievements reverberate all over the country.

We are in a pre-election year and political activities are at its peak, so lies, deceit, innuendos, and promises which are outrageous saturate the airwaves, billboards, banners and posters etc. Many people have shown desire to lead but being a leader require much more than fantasies and desires and promises.

Given the core jobs of a legislator , Hon. Nkole has, no doubt excelled in every aspect of legislation, over-sight functions and attracting constituency projects. Hon. Uko Nkole is reaching-out far beyond his scope as a legislator because he is a leader with passion and love for his people.

I will urge us, the good people of Arochukwu/Ohafia federal constituency to look beyond the ephemeral political rhetoric and concentrate on lasting gains that Hon. Nkole has attracted to our people and our constituency. His Midas touch is very visible in every nook and cranny of our constituency. Human capacity building and empowerment weren’t left out.

The Infrastructural development projects he attracted to our constituency are legendary, Yet he is in office only for three (3) years and counting. We can predict what Hon. Nkole can do as against the others “political gamblers”.

I WONDER WHAT THOSE WHO ARE JOSTLING TO GO TO THE GREEN CHAMBERS FOR US WILL DO DIFFERENTLY?

WHAT WILL THEY SAY THEY WILL ACHIEVE THAT WE HAVEN’T BE GIVEN OR ACHIEVED BY HON. UKO NKOLE?? WHAT EARTH WILL THEY PROMISE US WHEN HON. NKOLE IS TAKING US TO PARADISE?

LET US REMEMBER THAT HON. NKOLE WHO PROMISED US MORE GOODIES, WHEN RE ELECTED WILL BE JUDGED ON WHAT HE HAS ACHIEVED AND SHALL BE TRUSTED TO BETTER HIS OUTSTANDING RECORD.
