Produce scorecard of your elected members, LP group challenges APGA in Anambra


Lawrence Nwimo, Awka

A Labour Party group, under the aegis of Forum of Labour Party State House of Assembly Candidates, Anambra State chapter, has challenged All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) to produce the scorecard of its elected members representing various constituencies of the state.

The group said the challenge would provide a comparative assessment of performance of Labour Party and APGA members elected to represent the people of the state at the state and national assemblies.

In a statement signed by the Director of Communication, Hon. Chibuzo Udekigbo, the group said the challenge was in reaction to a statement by APGA National Publicity Secretary, Mazi Ejimofor Opara that was targeted at the members of the party.

They said “Mazi Opara described labour party faithfuls in Anambra as mere disgruntled elements and power mongers with misplaced priorities and bunch of jokers with no clear-cut directions as to why they were elected to occupy public offices.”

Responding in their statement, the group said: “Ordinarily, we would not have given Mazi Opara the privilege of response, but owing to the general public, we deemed it necessary to seize this opportunity and do a Comparative Assessment Report of elected Labour Party and APGA Legislators

“It is a fact that at the National Assembly where Labour Party have 8 serving members from Anambra State; 3 are Chairmen of various Standing Committees and Deputy Minority Whip; while APGA got none.

“Academic and Professional profiles of our elected National and State Assemblies members are quite excellent. Among them are Medical doctor, Professor, Lawyers, Engineers, and other Professionals who are performing credibly well in their legislative responsibilities. We challenge Mazi Opara to publish the profile of APGA elected members, both at the State and National Assemblies.

“It is on record that Sen. Tony Nwoye had an unprecedented empowerment program, and 3 State Assembly members of Labour Party, Mazi Paul Obu, Hon. Nigeria Mbachu and Barr. Jude Umennajiego, also, recently empowered their constituents in different categories.
