The atmosphere was tensed up, not as a result of strife this time but because of extreme excitement. The music crew held the audience spellbound with their beautiful presentations. Passersby could not help but stare in utter amusement at the pump and circumstance that surrounded the event.

The venue was the Igbo Eze home of Rt. Honourable Patrick Asadu, who is presently serving as a three-time member representing Nsukka and Igbo Eze South at the Federal House of Representatives. It was filled to brim.

36 chairmen from the wards that together make up Nsukka and Igbo Eze South constituency and other stakeholders  had gathered to pass a vote of confidence on him for another term as a member of the National Assembly.

All clad in their beautiful attires and patiently seated, the ward chairmen wore happy faces. Other dignitires who had gathered to share in the moment could not hide their joy.

Speaking on the level of confidence reposed on him, Hon Asadu said that it will provide him an opportunity to serve the people better through the provision of the dividends of democracy.

“For me it is really amazing and a call to serve at the same time. I feel challenged to do more since the people are able to appreciate me for the little I have done for them. "It will be really disappointing to fail to do more for my people. I shall strive to improve more on human capital and individual development”.

He speaks further “ below the University of Nigeria is biting poverty that continues to deprive us of what were we ought to be. "I shall seize this opportunity to better the lives of my people. in Enugu, we don’t play politics of self aggrandizement, Instead we try to help one another”.

Also speaking at the event, the Chairman, Nsukka Local Government area, Hon Rose Onah said that the vote of confidence on Hon Asadu could not have come at a better time giving his landmark achievements as a representative of the people.

“what they ward chairmen have done is very much in place because Asadu is a action oriented. "He has been doing a good job both within the council area he represents as a legislature especially with respect to the committee he heads” “he has has Embarked on various projects to promote the welfare of youth and women and to bring about development in the two LGA he is representing” she said.

Also speaking during the event, Hon. Ejike Ome Okpe who is the PDP Chairman Obimo Ekwuoka ward said that Asadu has transformed into a  leader with reputation in the entire country giving his huge support for the PDP.

“There is widespread poverty in Nigerian and that is more reason why we need the likes of Asadu to get into power. “It is an honour well deserved” he said even as he called on him to work hard as he goes back to office.

Doctor. Fidelis Okonkwu who is the caretaker Chairman Igboeze South local government said that the performance of Asadu has been superlative which is evidence in the dividence of democracy the people get from him. “ He has successfully made improvements in the education sector and the health sector” and we expect more from him.

In another development, members of the People’s Democratic Party have expressed satisfaction with the ruling of the supreme court wherein it declared Senator Ahmed Mekarfi the substantive chairman of the party.

Baring her mind on the ruling Hon. Rose Onah said it will be a watershed in the history of the PDP especially in the South East zone.

“we are back and better and are now focused and we shall make every effort to get hold of power again come 2019. The ruling will go along way in settling the internal strive we have hitherto had” she said.
