The reelection bid of Hon. Princess Miriam Onuoha to go back to the Green Chamber, received a major boost with her unanimous endorsement by Okigwe North Elders’ Forum, presided over by no lesser person than Engr. Ebere Udeagu, former two time Deputy Governor of Imo State.
This decision was reached after evaluating her performances so far within just two years in the Parliament. “Hon. Princess Miriam Onuoha is very passionate with the development our district and as such, should be encouraged to go back and continue the good work”, Engr Udeagu pointed out.
Dr Charles Nwaogaraku, Chief Christian Ibeawuchi, Prof.C.Eze, Prof.N.A.A Okereke, Sir John Nnabuihe, Prof.Mrs Uju Oku and Mr Emeka Ogaraku the Convener of the meeting took turns in praising Onuoha for bringing democratic dividends to her people.
On zoning, the Forum said that it favours her as all the Clans have done their two terms each and most naturally, a fresh turn should start with the last and that person is no other person, than Princess Miriam Onuoha, Mama Sure.P.
“We can not afford to take avoidable risk by bringing a new face that is not tested thus going back to ground zero again. It’s on record that she has sponsored Bills which have all passed the third reading, waiting for Senate concurrence before presidential nodding.
“They are: Bills for the upgrading of Okigwe General Hospital to a Federal Medical Center; the establishment of the Federal College of Nursing, Midwifery and Health Sciences, Isiala Mbano; and establishment of College of Horticulture, Okigwe,” the Elders noted.
They also commended her for enovation of schools, youth and women empowerment, scholarShips, free medical programmes, sports and assisting young graduates to get federal government jobs.
