The traditional ruler of Ojoto community, HRH Igwe Gerald Obunadike Mbamalu, Ezeoranyelu 1, has said increased engagement between lawmakers and their constituents would make for even development.

He made the remark at a town hall meeting organized by Hon. Uche Harris Okonkwo, a member of the Labour Party representing Idemili North and South federal constituency, at Ndiabor hall, Ojoto in Idemili South LGA on the 2nd of April

The event was a round table discussion between the elected and the electorates, brought together president generals of the communities, women leaders, youth leaders and other stakeholders from Idemili South constituency which comprises of seven communities. The aim was for the people to discuss the past, the present and the future of their constituency.

Speaking at the event, Igwe Mbamalu applauded Hon. Okonkwo for initiating an opportunity where the electorates exercise their rights.

According to the monarch, “We have come to a stage where the electorate should ask questions or hold their representative accountable for their actions. Meeting of this kind should be mandated and if possible, be enshrined in the constitution. Because there is a constitutional provision that allocates some funds to the representatives for their constituency development, but there is no constitutional provision for the people that are feeling the heat from the grassroots, the constituents to ask questions to know if those funds were actually and properly used.”

The president general of Nnokwa community, W. Commander Joe Anyika, Ochiagha Nnokwa, described the event as a gigantic step taken by Hon. Okonkwo, whom he said was an accountable officer, and urged him to continue in the path of uprightness.

Earlier, Hon. Uche Okonkwo received an award of excellence from the Association of Music and Film Producers and Marketers of Nigeria, AMUFPMAN.

Responding, he expressed his gratitude for the show of love from the association and promised to readily render assistance to the group whenever the need arises.
