“Job creation is key to effective community development. It is difficult to open up any town without road construction and creating job opportunities. Once more jobs are created, young people would begin to support community projects, and the moment a road is done the value of properties within the area appreciates.

“The SHEDA office I attracted to this community for instance has commenced work officially, and it is one of the biggest projects attracted by me so far. A good number of unemployed people have become gainfully employed in this highly reputed federal government institution, thereby taking a lot of young people out of the streets.

“I sacrificed a lot to make the people comfortable and productive by ensuring adequate provision of enabling conditions for improved livelihood, while unlocking business opportunities through construction of markets. Quality education and healthcare facilities, credible Bills and motions, among other community driven initiatives are in the list of my favourite achievements as a lawmaker.

“I wish to congratulate the former PG Chief Kelvin Chiedozie (Oba Ochendo) for finishing very strong, while urging the new PG Oba Chief Romanus Okafor to do better. You are getting no fewer than three roads and other critical interventions from me this year 2024. I have equally facilitated employment for hundreds of unemployed persons, most of whom have already collected their appointment letters from notable federal government institutions”, she said.

At that point Senator Ekwunife was honoured with a standing ovation by the leaders and entire members of the community present, as cheers, heartening remarks of admiration and joyous celebration engulfed the the project site.
