Anambra Central Assembly Laments Non Representation In Senate


Anambra Central Assembly, ACA, has expressed great concern over the continued lack of representation of Anambra Central Senatorial District in the Senate.

Speaking to the press in Awka, after a meeting of the Assembly, the Chairman, Chief Arinze Ekelem, said that what was playing out in the Senatorial District portends a very bad omen for the country’s democracy.

He wondered why Anambra Central Senatorial district seat in the Upper Chamber has continued to be vacant for the greater part of the eighth National Assembly tenure, which is more than halfway to its exit.

Chief Ekelem made a passionate appeal to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, and other relevant authorities to as a matter of utmost urgency conduct an election to fill the long overdue Anambra Central district’s vacancy in the Senate.

According to the Anambra Central Assembly Chairman, the continued delay in filling the vacancy in the Senate, smacks of marginalization and intimidation of the South East, as well as another well rehearsed move towards furthering the polarization of Anambra State in the scheme of things in the Nigerian nation.

Chief Ekelem opined that INEC and the relevant agencies have continued to progressively but intimidatingly join in the campaign to keep off Anambra State, in particular and the entire South East from the country’s legislative engineering business . noting that the way out is for INEC to immediately conduct an election to fill the vacant seat of Anambra Central in the National Assembly.

He explained that Anambra Central remains an integral part of Nigeria and since every senatorial district has a representative in the Senate, the district no longer enjoys the pariah status INEC placed on her for over two years now.

On the November eighteen gubernatorial election in the State, Chief Ekelem advised those aspirants who have nothing positive to contribute towards the development of Anambra to honourably step down.
