Since his inauguration as a member of the Nigerian Senate in June 2019, distinguished Senator, Dr. Michael Ama Nnachi representing Ebonyi South Senatorial zone has not only shown that the people of the zone did not make any mistake in electing him, but has raised the bar of representation by delivering impactful, life changing democracy Dividends to the good people of Ebonyi South Senatorial zone.
As first timer in the Senate, Senator Nnachi has, in less than two years of his first term, already surpassed the accomplishments and achievements of those who went before him on behalf of Ebonyi South, both in quality representation at the hallowed chambers of Nigeria’s highest law making conclave, but indeed back home and on ground with his infrastructural, empowerment and developmental imprint all across the Senatorial zone.
Having already established his excellent reputation as a man of the people and a leader who walks the talk, even before his overwhelming landslide election victory and endorsement by his people, Senator Nnachi, has left no one in doubt of his desire and determination to justify his mandate and fulfill his pledge to his people which he made at the inaugural reception to honour his inaguration as a Senator of the Federal republic of Nigeria at Christian Pilgrims Board Abuja organized to celebrate his victory in the February 23rd, 2019 National Assembly elections.
His pledge at that inaugural reception has been his mantra and guiding principle since taking up the mantle to hold forth for Ebonyi South in the Senate: “My brothers and sisters from Ebonyi south, I shall not let you people down. But lets also not forget that the main principal function of a lawmaker is lawmaking and not infrastructure. You will see quality laws from me that will come better than physical infrastructure.
“I can assure you all that I will never sleep. I will continue to work and work until the people of Ebonyi south enjoys the full dividends of democracy. I will also through my constituency projects provide those basic needs of life that will improve the well being of our people”, he had pledged.
It is thus not difficult to fathom that against the backdrop of this tall order, a man and leader who believes that when the people of his zone are happy, he is also happy, will definitely go beyond law making and initiate life touching projects across the zone, which have been delivered in accordance with the critical needs of his people in mind.
