Why I abandoned medical job for politics – Umeadi

Young Progressive Party (YPP) Senatorial candidate for Anambra Central District, Dr. Anthony Umeadi has given reasons why he left his well medical job for politics.

He said he felt he would touch more lives as a politician than a medical practitioner. 

Addressing members of Nigerian Union Journalists (NUJ) Anambra State chapter on Thursday, Umeadi said he was disturbed that many people were suffering while few were living comfortable in their homes.

He said, “I have intention of touching more lives as a politician, because there are  limits an individual can touch the lives of  people on his own capacity.

“Iam worried that people asked for school fees of about N20,000. I have a foundation to reach out to the poor, especially the brilliant ones who have good results but no money to train them 

“It has been my dream to bring quality representations to my people and make great different from what used to be.

“I am assuring you that with me as a senator, you will have a senator with a difference. I am going into senate to bring the desired change the people need. 

“We have been having people who have been unleashing hardship on the people.They promised what they have no intention to do. It is time we stop these who promise what they  cannot do.

“In have my foundation, we use to empower the youths, reduce the poverty in the communities and also treating people with health challenges. There is a limit one can go as an individual. I thought I can do more as a senator.”

Umeadi also assured youth empowerment and employment opportunities for teeming youths, promising that his practical approach to management will spur a faster approach to alleviate hardship and bring the government closer to the people.

“Youth engagement is an instrument that will be in place to encourage youthful participation,’ he stated.

He maintained that it was high time the people approach governance with a different perspective.

Umeadi upheld resilience of the youths and the public at large who are championing the movement for Mr. Peter Obi as a president, insisting that the job of number one citizen should go to the best man.

He called on Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to address challenges regarding use of BVAS voting technology to foster credible and peacefull elections.
