Ahead of the 2019 general elections, stakeholders in Agwu South state constituency have declared that their constituency seat in Enugu State House of Assembly will resume rotation among the federating communities.
The meeting was attended by nearly 100 indigenes of the area, who all appended their signatures to the resolution.
The constituents met in Enugu on Saturday under the aegis of Agwu South Vanguard for Gburugburu, where they lamented that the seat had remained in one out of fifteen communities for 16 consecutive years and needed to rotate to other communities.
According to them, “Agwu town has had more than its fair share of representation and therefore should allow other components communities in the consistency to produce the next representative in the state House of Assembly.”
“It appears that representing Agwu South constituency has become the birth right and exclusive preserve of Agwu town. This is unacceptable,” the group said.
They said they needed a new and vibrant representative at the House of Assembly for reasons of equity, elimination of creeping restiveness among on-lookers of other communities and for justice sake.
They hailed Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi’s administration over his record of achievements in the State.
The group stated that the All Progressives Congress, APC, federal government had failed Nigerians and should be voted out of power in 2019.
They also expressed support for the deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu and the Peoples Democratic party, PDP, for making much impact in the lives of their people.
