‘Rep. Obinna Chidoka is one of the few emerging political leaders who are poised to changing the narrative through selfless service to constituents and the nation at large’
By: Arthur Maduka
Before and from the inception of Nigeria as an independent nation, it has been from one organized discourse or another in search of a new Nigeria where Nigerians are united irrespective of obvious differences and Nigeria place on a path of sustainable development.
The perception of being denied of a country that works have often put the masses up against the political leadership of this country. The political leadership are currently grappling with a heavy burden of prejudice manifesting as public cooperation and support deficit.
However, few of the emerging political leaders are determined to addressing the obvious image and reputational crisis that arose from the actions and inactions of those before them.
Rep. Obinna Chidoka is one of the few emerging political leaders who are poised to changing the narrative through selfless service to constituents and the nation at large. For him, leadership must be about the people, providing solutions, and being diligently committed to creating pathways for good governance.
As the honourable member representing the good people of Idemili North and South, Obinna Chidoka has taken legislative actions to improve national economic conditions and national security architecture in order to encourage harmonious coexistence and reduce poverty, unemployment and infrastructure in the country and in Idemili North and South in particular.
The aforementioned are reflected in some of the bills he has sponsored, viz;
Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (Alteration) (Local Government Autonomy) Bill, 2020 (HB.863)
Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (Fourth Republic) (Removal of the Word Force) Bill, word Force from the name of Nigerian Police
Employee’s Compensation Act (Amendment) Bill, 2022
Nursing and Midwifery (Registration etc.) Act (Amendment) Bill, 2022 (HB. 1996)
Police Procurement Fund Bill, 2022
Tertiary Education Trust Fund Act (Establishment, Etc.) (Amendment) Bill, 2022 (HB. 1995)
Ultra-Modern Museum of National Unity (Establishment) Bill, 2022 (HB.2011)
The Electoral Act (No.6) (Amendment) Bill, 2021
Additionally, Hon. Obinna Chidoka is also a champion of a people-oriented legislature, hence, in his action as representative of his people at the lower chamber of the National Assembly; the wellbeing of his constituents has always been the priority. He is working round the clock to repay the trust placed on him and to deliver on his blueprint for Idemili North and South. His achievements in this regard cut across training and empowerment of constituents on various vocational skills, renovation of schools and construction of block of classrooms, constructions of rural roads, installation of transformers and solar mini grid, rejigging primary health care centres, etc.
Hon. Obinna Chidoka is walking the talk in an attempt to creating a new Nigeria where they will be improved trust between the government and the governed. A new Nigeria where the cardinal goal of the political class will be to improve the living standards of the citizenry by creating pathways for sustainable economic prosperity.
