Labour Party House of Assembly candidate for Nkanu West Constituency in the 2023 general elections in Enugu state, Hon. Johnpaul Anih has said that the next year’s election is between the ruling class and the ordinary people whose yesterday were stolen, whose today is being squandered and whose future are already placed on mortgage.
“We cannot afford to make another mistake in 2023 as Labour Party has come to change the game”.
This was contained in a Press release issued recently by Johnpaul Anih’s campaign Organization.
The group stated that for 12 years now, Ndi Nkanu West have been like a people without a voice in the State House of Assembly, no bill sponsored by her representative, no visible project not even a single water tap, absolutely nothing, adding that such epileptic representation was what Hon. Johnpaul Anih of the Labour Party has come to address because according to him, Nkanu West cannot afford to waste another four years.
He stressed that the funny aspect of the entire charade was that the people who are consistently raped by the PDP are involved in clapping and venerating the men who impoverished and recked their future to their personal gains.
“Of course, they have gone into hibernation waiting for another political season to start parading themselves, appearing more sanctimonious only on the face of the television and giving our people false hope and another empty promises. Never again”
“This time around, we must speak with our votes and no amount of intimidation, threat, falsehood, thuggery, violence, brutality, bloodshed or bullying can stop it.
“The upcoming election is a referendum on the 24 years of PDP in Enugu state, 8 years of APC in Abuja and the assessment of the OBIdient movement. Let no one deceive you. The very essence of leadership is to give direction propelled by vision anchored on improving the lives and welfare of the people. We need to try a new platform whose leader will be a model. In Labour Party, lies the vehicle to a new, prosperous and better Nkanu West Constituency”.
Stressing on what he will do differently, Hon. Johnpaul Anih said: “Through legislation and effective oversight, we will improve the standard of living and general wellbeing of our people. If elected, I will use this office to facilitate collaboration with the executive arm of government to bring about infrastructural development and economic empowerment.
“I will sponsor, co-sponsor relevant bills and motions, aswell as push for the enactment of legislation that engenders welfarism which will bring prosperity to the great people of Nkanu West. Power has only one duty, which is to secure the social welfare of the people. For me, the wellbeing of our people is paramount. We have done it in the past given the availability of resources, we can do it again and even better.
Relying on his past records, he said:
“In 2021, I flagged off my scholarship program known as “Johnpaul’s Education Support Scheme”. We took off by awarding over Seventy-Five indigent students drawn from various secondary Schools in the local government with fully sponsored scholarship package.
“I attracted two solar powered boreholes with eighteen panels each to my local government. Through my recommendation, over ten youths from my local government secured civil service jobs. As part of efforts to promoting the acquisition of education, I sponsored the WAEC and NECO fees of some indigent students from the local government. I pushed for, and revamped the near-moribound Daily Star newspaper by building a functional online media section ‘Daily Star Online News’ in the establishment. During the covid19 pandemic, I did not miss the opportunity of sending relief materials to my people as part of efforts to cushioning the effects of the pandemic amongst others”.
