As the 2023 General Election draw nearer, the people of Okigwe zone Senatorial district should not be in a hurry to replace the Senator that represents Imo North at the Red chamber of the National Assembly.
It’s of great importance to state here that the wonderful people of Okigwe zone will have no reason whatsoever to think of replacing a man who has offered them the best of representation at the upper chamber of the national Assembly.
It therefore becomes very important to state here that the Senator Frank Ibezim’s good performance deserves consolidation which will help him to achieve more for his beloved people of Okigwe zone Senatorial district in 2023.
The man has shown that the well-being of his beloved people remains topmost in his agenda as he has continuously championed programmes and activities aimed at bettering and improving the lives of his people of Imo North like his free medical outreach recently held in all the six Local Governments that make up Okigwe zone Senatorial district.
There is every need to let the people of Okigwe zone Senatorial district to know that Senator Frank Ibezim’s return to the national Assembly in 2023 apart from making him a ranking member, will give him the impetus to consolidate on his first term achievements which every Tom, Dick and Harry can attest to and the proceeds from such is bountiful.
The federal lawmaker has been consulting widely with the people and strengthening relationship, as well as building bridges for new ones having known that in 2021 Okigwe zone bye Election, not many gave him a chance to become the candidate talk more of winning the election proper except God, Gov Hope Uzodimma, Hon. Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba and Okigwe zone stakeholders with discerning minds.
He has not fallen short in attracting developmental projects like the ongoing urban beautification of Okigwe zone and empowerment schemes and most importantly, the bills and motions he sponsored that are people oriented, etc, as a grassroots man, the people have the best representative in Senator Frank Ibezim.
It is also important to bring to your notice that the first tenure of every legislator is seen as a period of legislative education in which the first timer isn’t allowed to perform certain duties or occupy sensitive positions but his case is different as he has within the short period endeared himself to his colleagues at the national Assembly.
The very man of the moment has displayed intelligence and bravery by becoming one of the shinning stars of the present 9th Senate of the national Assembly and has performed his duties both as a new senator mastering the art of legislation and member that represents the Imo North at the Red chamber of the national Assembly.
With what this intelligent and exceptional lawmaker has done within his first one year in office, it is very important to ask him to continue beyond 2023 so that the people of his constituency will enjoy more benefits and dividends of democracy.
It was due to his intelligence and vibrancy that made the people of Okigwe zone Senatorial district to give him their full backing during the electioneering period and the election proper.
This is to say that it was based on his performance as a former commissioner for Agriculture in Imo State under the then Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, a position which he displayed his political sagacity and showed the stuff that he is made of.
Senator Frank Ibezim has used the past few month at the national Assembly, to gather legislative experience which will be very useful to him and his constituents in 2023.
If Senator Frank Ibezim is elected for a second term, he has the chances of emerging a ranking senator of the national Assembly which will make him a ranking senator and the benefits associated with that are enormous.
It is important to mention here that the reelection of Senator Frank Ibezim is a collective responsibility of all men of good conscience who mean well for the people of Okigwe zone in order to secure the exalted position for our people in 2023.
The gains and benefits will be massive employment opportunities for the entire people of Okigwe zone, Imo State and the Southeast geopolitical zone of Nigeria.
Senator Frank Ibezim is also one man who has shown that he has the capacity to move Okigwe zone Senatorial district to the next level and this is one of the major reasons I have supported him to seek for reelection in 2023.
The wonderful people of Okigwe zone Senatorial district should use my call to support Senator Frank Ibezim to go back to Red chamber of the national Assembly in 2023 so as to complete the good works he started in 2021, for it will be suicidal if a political neophyte or green horn is allowed to go into the national Assembly in 2023. God forbid !!!
The Imo North Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria remains the answer for the long wait for the people of Okigwe zone Senatorial district to produce not just a ranking senator but a principal officer at the national Assembly.
It, therefore become imperative to think about what we stand to benefit if Senator Frank Ibezim is reelected in 2023. He will certainly make Okigwe zone great again!
This is to say that Senator Frank Ibezim if given the people’s mandate will work in tandem with other true leaders of the zone to make laws and sponsor bills that will reflect on the collective well- being of the people.
Let’s open our eyes and embrace this golden opportunity that Senator Frank Ibezim has presented to us and grab it with both hands. Senator Frank Ibezim remains the future of Okigwe zone with his wisdom and vision.
The people of Okigwe zone Senatorial district should not make the mistake of sending a first timer to go and begin to learn the rope when Senator Frank Ibezim has already mastered the terrain and had made good use of his being a member of the national Assembly to better the lives of his beloved people.
The people should therefore queue behind him to not only bring the goodies but ensure that his voice keeps sounding loud in the Red chamber of the national Assembly beyond the expiration of his first term mandate in 2023.
“It’s based on the available evidence that I enjoin you to do the needful by supporting Senator Frank Ibezim in his bid to become the candidate for the election because he truly deserves another shot at the Red chamber of the national Assembly”.
