By Jude Atupulazi
As the countdown to the 2023 general elections continues, the Labour Party House of Assembly candidate for Anaocha State Constituency 2, Mr Osita Kingsley Ozalagba, says his antecedents will stand before him as the best choice to represent his people in Awka.
Speaking with Fides in Awka, Ozalagba, who was the pioneer president of Anambra State Association of Town Unions (ASATU) Youth Wing, has vowed to bring his wealth of leadership experience as a youth leader to bear in his representation of his constituency if elected next year.
Ozalagba who is the incumbent chairman of his immediate community of Ajani Village, Ichida, said he had raised the bar of leadership through collective action, leading him to boast of such achievements as facilitating the completion of a modern kitchen in Nkwor Ichida; facilitation of the construction of 120 capacity seater pavilion; facilitation of over 80 Grade A solar powered street light in Ajani Village; setting up of Lady Ezinne Theresa Chiekezie Computer Centre; interlocking of Nkwor Ichida; institution of an adult education centre; grading of roads in Ajani Village; free computer classes for primary school pupils in Ajani Village; and purchase of emergency service shuttle bus with a hotline to help families in emergency situations, among other achievements.
‘These and many more were my achievements within one year in office as a village chairman. You can imagine what Anaocha Constituency 2 will be with me in charge as a House of Assembly member. We will lift the bar of representative governance by investing heavily in building the youths and women so that families can live happily,’ Ozalagba assured.
The House of Assembly hopeful who handed over N13 million worth of assets after inheriting nothing as youth leader, said as an assembly member, representatives of each town would be involved in decision making for the improvement of social amenities.
‘My very own fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters of Aguluzigbo, Akwaeze, Ichida, Neni, Nri and Obeledu will be made proud if they find me worthy to represent them,’ he promised.
