The member representing Nsukka/Igbo-Eze South Federal Constituency in the National Assembly, Hon Chidi Obetta, has promised quality representation for members of his constituency.
Obetta gave the task in Abuja recently while interfacing with newsmen. He promised to bridge the gap of quality representation that was experienced in the time past by his constituents in the area of education, infrastructure and empowerment.
He further maintained that his victory at the election was a reflection of the amount of love the people of his constituency have for him, adding that he defeated his closest rival with over 50, 000 votes.
Obetta said that the number of votes he garnered after the election was a fulfillment of the prophecy his wife had over a year ago.
According to him, “The prophecy came in February last year precisely, and by that time, there was nothing like Labour Party which is the platform I later emerged from. So I began to ask myself: what type of prophecy was this? Which party will ever defeat PDP in Enugu State?”
Obetta, who said that though the prophecy of his wife seemed unrealistic in the eyes of men, the number of votes he later garnered after the election showed that ‘God’s ways are different from those of men’.
He added, “I will give my best to represent our people very well. My office will be open 24 hours for ideas and contributions from our constituents and well wishers. The voice and problems of our people will be effectively heard through me and with God on our side, we will succeed.”
