Ladies and gentlemen, esteemed indigenous people of Azu Ogbunike, and Ndi Ichie/Ogbuefi Azu Ogbunike, Ndi Nze na Ozo, Members of the Azu Ogbunike Elders Forum, Chairmen and Secretaries of Eleven Families, I come to you today with great humility, and a profound sense of responsibility as we embark on a new era in Azu Ogbunike. 

I am deeply honored to address you as the newly elected Chairman of the Azu Village Union. April 2024 marks not only the beginning of my tenure but also a collective journey towards progress, unity, and empowerment.

As we stand at the threshold of immense possibilities, I am inspired by the resilience and determination that resonates within our vibrant community.

Today, I invite you to join me on a transformative path, where we will navigate challenges, celebrate achievements, and ensure that our voices are heard, valued, and amplified.

Together, we shall lead with purpose, compassion, and a resolute spirit, forging a future that reflects our shared dreams and aspirations.

I would like to express my deepest gratitude to the Youths of Azu Ogbunike, and stakeholders for finding me worthy to lead our beloved community, the AVU general assembly, the law enforcement agencies, for providing us with an enabling environment that facilitated a successful and peaceful election. 

Your commitment to upholding democratic values and ensuring a fair electoral process is commendable. I extend my heartfelt appreciation to every citizen of Azu Ogbunike who exercised their right to vote, regardless of their choice.

Your participation in this democratic process is a testament to the vibrant and engaged community that thrives on progressive development. 

As I have assumed this esteemed position, I pledge my unwavering resolve to work collaboratively with each and every one of you.

Now is the time for us to set aside political differences and embrace the spirit of true governance and leadership. 

To all the candidates who contested alongside me but were not successful, I congratulate you on your spirited campaigns and dedication to the welfare of our community. I implore you to join me in transcending the boundaries of rivalry and uniting for the greater good of the people of Azu Ogbunike. Let us prioritize the interests of our fellow citizens above all else, for it is their collective progress that must guide our actions and decisions.

It would be unfairly, if I didn’t express my profound gratitude to the indomitable youths of Azu Ogbunike whose unwavering belief in my potential and continuous support have been instrumental in shaping my journey thus far. I humbly request that you keep your doors open, as your wisdom and guidance will undoubtedly be sought throughout my tenure. 

I also extend my heartfelt appreciation to the immediate past executives of Azu Village Union who listened and respected the wishes of the generality of the people, desolved their government for general elections to take place on Easter Monday 2024.

To the stakeholders, your endorsement and confidence in my abilities have been invaluable. Furthermore, I extend my sincere appreciation to the Ogbunike Progress Union (OPU), Azu Vigilante Group, Ogbunike central security unit, particularly the Ogbunike police division and DSS of Oyi LGA and all other security agencies involved, for their cooperation and dedication during the entire election process. Their commitment to maintaining a secure and peaceful environment deserves our commendation. 

I would like to express my gratitude to past administration, particularly the Chairman, Ogbuefi Obinna Igwenagu, for their tireless efforts and the achievements they have accomplished during their tenure. 

I congratulate my fellow elected executives on their successful campaigns and their new roles. Let us remember that the time for celebration is over, and now it is our collective responsibility to roll up our sleeves and embark on the task of delivering on our mandates. 

I assure each and every one of them of my unwavering cooperation and commitment to working together for the betterment of our community.

Building upon the foundation we have established, I am thrilled to share with you the three-point agenda that will shape my administration’s endeavors at Azu Village Union. 

First and foremost, we will prioritize the process of recovering our communal lands in the hands of land grabbers and speculators. We recognize the challenges that we are faced with, and it is our duty to ensure that everything that belongs to our community is recovered. 

We will enhance healthcare services in our community, take care of the sick and aged people. We will expand scholarship opportunities, we will strive to create an environment that fosters holistic growth and supports for the aspirations of Azu Ogbunike youths.

We will create avenues for legitimate revenues for the development of our darling community. We will do our best to ensure our roads are motor-able, and accessible. 

To address the security challenges faced by our community, we will diplomatically pursue and strengthen the security architecture within the community. By exploring innovative solutions, such as recruitment, training and adequate tooling of the officers. We aim to alleviate the burden on our Vigilantes, ensure proper reward system that will motivate them to serve efficiently and effectively. By securing additional resources, we will create opportunities that alleviate financial burdens and empower deserving security men to reach their full potential.

Under the banner of “Operation Light Up Azu Ogbunike,” we will initiate an initiative to improve lighting in areas that have experienced a history of security threats and attacks. By enhancing visibility, we aim to support security personnel in their efforts to maintain a safe and secure environment.

We will initiate youths empowerment program. This program will empower our young people to develop self-sufficiency skills, encouraging entrepreneurship and providing support for income-generating activities. By equipping youths with practical skills and opportunities, we aim to foster financial independence and promote holistic development.

As your Chairman, I commit to maintaining a formal and transparent approach in my dealings with the AVU Exco and other stakeholders. By ensuring clear and timely dissemination of information, we will prioritize accessibility and inclusivity. Regular updates and notices will be communicated through various traditional channels, and online media platforms, enabling every citizen to stay informed and engaged.

Through these initiatives and commitments, we will create a harmonious and productive relationship with the eleven families, elders forum, chieftaincy institution, religious organizations, ensuring that our community’s needs and aspirations are at the forefront of decision-making and planning.

Together, we will build an environment that empowers personal growth, and promotes the holistic well-being of each and every citizen.

As we move forward with our sustainable capital projects, it is imperative to address the unfinished projects funded by the previous administration. We aim that all ongoing projects funded by the previous administration will be completed in line with their original plans and timelines.
We will prioritize the speedy completion of our Village Hall.

As your Chairman, I assure you that I will be as formal as possible in my dealings with everyone, ensuring transparency and accountability. I will prioritize effective communication channels, ensuring that everyone is informed of important developments and decisions. 

In conclusion, my fellow citizens of Azu Ogbunike, my tenure marks the beginning of a transformative chapter in the history of our beloved community. With humility and determination, I come to you as your newly elected Chairman, ready to embark on a journey of progress, unity, and empowerment.

Together, we have outlined a comprehensive agenda that focuses on the effective welfarism of all citizens of Azu Ogbunike, administrative synergy, and sustainable capital projects.
