Arochukwu/Ohafia Fed. Constituency 2023: Chief Daniel Okeke and the essentials of preplanned representation
The 2023 general election is coming in earnest. And, for the people of Arochukwu/Ohafia federal constituency, another opportunity beckons on them to choose their next set of leaders and representatives to navigate the ship of the Constituency from the rubble of delinquency, backwardness, nepotism, grave insecurity, and ineptitude in governance.
During twenty-three years of unbroken democratic rule since 1999, expectations were high that Arochukwu/Ohafia Federal Constituency, as a Constituency with highly respected and progressive elites, would march decisively to her well-deserved coveted seat in the comity of counterparts.
Ironically, however, the constituency’s anticipated journey to glory came out to be a march to folly and the glimmering hope of gloriousness obscured into the thick darkness of gloom. Untold hardship, pervasive misery, and poverty have been the inescapable consequence, which has become the defining appearance of the Progressive constituency would have become. The condition keeps deteriorating by the day, especially in the last seven years of the rudderless People’s Democratic Party(PDP) leadership in the State.
With the declining human development index and the constituency having the mishap of being ranked as the worst-represented constituency in the state, there is nothing to cheer about.
There is this general belief that Abia has been where it is because there have been no leaders and, as Harry S. Truman, one-time President of United States of America said, “Without leaders, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better.”
It has become compulsory for all who love Abia State to put all hands on deck, to join the All Progressive Congress (APC) in its avowed mission to rescue the state from the rubble created by the inept PDP government in the last decades.
In the rundown to the primary election for the Arochukwu/Ohafia Federal Constituency, Chief Daniel Chimezie Okeke, sought to represent the people of Arochukwu/Ohafia Federal Constituency as they clamored for progressive and competent representation. Chief Daniel Okeke emerged winner of the most keenly contested primary election.
