I am Duruebube Chimazuru “Oblong” Nnadi-Oforgu, House of Representatives candidate on the platform of the Action Alliance (AA) aspiring to represent Owerri Federal constituency.

I am happy to tell you my constituents that I am not in politics because I have the financial means, and in any case, I do not really have it. My motivation for going into politics has more to do with the fact that i know i have far much more to offer.

I am actually in politics because of my desire to serve the people and to bring more development, federal presence and enlightenment to my people

I strongly believe that the problems of poverty eradication and job creation should not be left for government alone to address, hence my burning desire to get directly involved and help make a difference.

Before offering to serve, I have interacted with my people on different levels and have taken a stock of their needs and desires in terms of physical and human developments. I also have a strong mechanism in place that helps to gather, verify and update data on how the constituency can be better and how its people can be better served.

Though time and space will not permit me to begin to list all these needs, let me quickly point out that i am internationally exposed, worldly wise and streetwise. I promise to transform the Owerri Federal Constituency, if elected.

I promise to attract statutory federal presence and  infrastructural development for the benefit of my constituents, and i have the wherewithal and the contacts to achieve this. I have what it takes, the passion, commitment and devotion to turn around the lives of my people.

If elected, I want to offer effective and qualitative representation by attracting federal projects to my constituency. I also intend to improve the lives of the elderly through initiatives that I’m keeping close to my chest that would address the challenges associated with old age.

Through constituency project allocations and other financial sources both local and international, i will tackle unemployment, decaying infrastructure and champion the upgrade of federal and state health facilities in my constituency.

If elected, I will rebrand the constituency, empower the youths with schemes that will reduce restiveness, initiate and actualize community projects for effective development. This will enable dividends of democracy to reflect in the lives and the standard of living of the people.

Top on my priority is youth and women empowerment through vocational skills acquisition, modern agrobased initiatives and microcredit schemes. I also plan for an educational endowment fund and scholarships for less privileged students. Theres definitely going to be a whole lot of difference in comparison to what we have had in recent past.

Also top on my priority is to uphold and maintain the cultural heritage of the owerri speaking tribes that make up the federal constituency which is not properly showcased and given the desired mystique and fanfare it deserves due to lack of funding.

Part of what I intend to achieve with my aspiration is qualitative lawmaking and synergy with the state and LGA arms of government to bring further development to my constituency

I have always been a man of vision both in the business world and in politics. I am modern, exposed, streetwise, creative and innovative.

I urge Ndi Owerri to vote for credible and competent individuals and de-emphasise the trend of party fanaticism, which most times than often does not guarantee that you vote for the best candidates available. I advise that you take a hard look across parties and ask yourself pertinent questions, what do we really know about the candidate other than that they have deep pockets and have a deceptive gift of the garb? If they’ve held positions before, what did they achieve? Are they accessible? Do they have the requisite passion and commitment to make a difference? Are they in politics for the business of give and take? Would they make good lawmakers and defenders of the constituency? etc.

Let’s do things differently this time. We can keep electing the same prototypes mostly encumbered and beholden candidates and expect different results. Try a non career politician with the requisite passion commitment and devotion to service and see what a world of difference it will make.

Vote for me via the Action Alliance (AA) platform and I guarantee you a breath of fresh air in the true sense of the word.
