I Come To Effect Change —Imo Aspirant


An aspirant to the Imo State House of Assembly under the platform of People’s Democratic  Party, PDP, in Okigwe Local Government area, Hon. Emmanuel Mbanusi has reiterated his  commitment to effect changes in the area which he claimed has been marginalised.

Speaking with P.M.NEWS, the National Treasurer of the National youth Council of Nigeria,  NYCN, maintained that, he is the best candidate for the post having served at various  posts in the local government and as a grassroot politician.

According to him, “before now, the local government has not witnessed effective  representation in the state assembly to attract any feasible constituency projects, to  bring industries there to generate employment for the youths and women.  I have offered  myself for service to my people and intend through legislation and executive lobbying to  restore Okigwe to reckoning, to use power of legislation to empower youths and women and  intend to establish Elders’ Council of Okigwe, ECO which will be made up of political  leaders, traditional rulers, youths and women.
