“You don’t lead people by what you say to them; you lead them by what they see you do. True leaders are self-leaders.”
“Leaders show examples. They have something to offer and they’ll offer it by the process of how they got it. Anyone who has no examples to show may not lead better.” ― Israelmore Ayivor
Using the above quotes to describe the uniqueness of the Majority Leader of the Abia State House of Assembly and Member Representing Umuahia Central State Constituency Hon Engr. Chinedum Orji is in tandem with his Legislative Process and excellent Political Sagacity.
When the Abia State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) gave him Ticket in 2015 to Contest the Abia State House of Assembly seat for Umuahia Central State Constituency,many concluded that he was going to the State House of Assembly for a Political Jamboree.
Apart from alleging that he was in to take over as the Speaker of the 6th Abia State House of Assembly, many Political Jobbers and Interlopers sneaked into the Abia State House of Assembly Chamber in June 2015,not to watch how Plenary is Conducted,but to Watch If ”Ikuku Could Speak English”
Those who attended that Inauguration of the 6th Abia State House of Assembly are in a better Position to share to us their Experience.
When Senator Theodore Orji was Governor of Abia State,many Top Politicians Today were empowered through Hon Engr Chinedum Orji,some used his name to get into what Political Office or the Other,Some through him became Millionaires while others go Employment through his Contact.
Suffice it to say that at the Current 6th Abia State House of Assembly Hon Engr Chinedum Orji is the finest Lawmaker you will be proud when he Speaks on the Floor of the House,very articulate,brilliant and very mindful of the ”Rule of Concord” in English Language.
When the Lawmaker Introduced DIRECT TOUCH as an avenue to reach Directly to his Constituents and empower them,those who had been blocking all the Good things released for the poorman in the Street of Umuahia by the Lawmaker thought it was a normal routine Exercise.
In December 2017,I was one the Journalists who Monitored the Distribution of Christmas Gifts and Direct Empowerment of the Umuahia Central Constituents, when the Lawmaker noticed that some of the Party Leaders had Hijacked what he bought for his People in Few Wards,he Forced them to Produce all the Items and Distributed it Directly to the People himself.
There is no Street Located at the Umuahia Central State Constituency that is not Enjoying Full Blown Electricity Supply and Water which the Lawmaker Directly Provided and Intervened.
Primary and Secondary Schools in the State Constituency are wearing a new Look courtesy of his Legislative Prowess.
All These Direct Touching of the Constituents of Umuahia Central State Constituency by Hon Chinedum Orji made no Member of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) to waste his or her Money in Buying Nomination Form as the Lawmaker was unanimously elected as the Flag-bearer of the PDP for Umuahia Central State Constituency in 2019.
Hon Chinedum Orji(IKUKU ABIA) is a man Loved across Political Divides because no matter which Party you are,you can never Come Close to the Lawmaker without a Positive Testimony.
It is Not Surprising therefore, that Hon Engr Chinedum Orji is the only one running for a Political Office in 2019 in Abia State without having any Opposition either in his Party APGA,APC,SDP etc,after all no Constituency will be glad to Change a Winning Team.
This Indeed is a great Lesson to Politicians in Abia,days of riding on the shoulders of somebody to win a Party Ticket is Over,Power now Belongs to the People.
A Great Lesson Indeed.
