The Oasis Reporters
December 24, 2022
A group of devoted People Democratic Party (PDP) members have moved to play by the rules of the game, stand for integrity and lift the Party up as a strong player it has always been in the politics of Anambra state.
To the rebuilding group, the ideals of the founding fathers to use politics as a medium to affect the majority of lives of the greatest number of the people of Anambra state remains their paramount concern.
“This group of gentlemen represent the best and most refined the party can boast of”, a political affairs watcher told The Oasis Reporters in Awka, the state capital.
“One thing that is common among them is their belief in the party and their steadfastness. They have remained with the party since 1999 and have stood by it throughout its challenges, steering it to the part of progress, even with the exit or junketing of some party stalwarts.
The top members of the group are:
1. Hon. Chuchu Onyema: Currently a serving member of the House of Representatives from Ogbaru Local Government Area.
His approach to politics is developmental and people oriented.
Hon.Onyema believes people should be the center of every political activity, decision and discussion.
He has distinguished himself in these areas and provided effective representation for his constituents.
2. Amechi Onowu: is a firm and focused party man. He believes in the collective strength of the multitude, rather any focus on any individual. Amechi’s tutelage comes from being former Vice president Alex Ekwueme’s Personal Assistant for long and deeply understands the importance of developing the individual to work with the multitude and attain total development for all.
An astute businessman but has always made out time to be actively involved in party politics at both state and national levels.
Mr Onowu, has always stood for the right things to be done when it comes to party politics while maintaining the larger interests of the people the party wants to represent.
Challenging the status quo has never been a problem to him as he has this firm belief that the interests and welfare of the people and party members should come first.
As they say, a successful man believes in bettering the welfare of people (home and abroad).
This saying describes the persona of the man called Amaechi Onowu.
3. Chief Ugochukwu Okeke (Enyioha):
His disposure is what earned him the title ENYIOH. He is an ardent believer of politics without bitterness in Anambra state. He is an apostle of ‘live and let live’ politics and has continued to promote the political philosophy of building a strong team.
For Chief Ugochukwu, politics is all about coming together first, before winning elections.
Enyioha as he is fondly called, hails from Ihiala in Anambra South of the state and on different occasions, for the sake of his belief in the politics of “live and let live”, has always stepped down on his ambition and provided support in all ramifications for the victory of the party in both state and national elections.
4. Dr Harry Oranezi
He is better known as a medical doctor and policy expert, rather than as a politician. Oranezi is, however, a politician and has played several roles in the politics of Anambra State and Nigeria. He was a coordinator of the Atiku/Obi presidential election in Anambra in 2019.
