I took out time to study Amb. Chikwe’s campaign website. Here are some of the accomplishments to her credit.
“Imo State Projects:
1. Owerri Airport
a. Reactivated operations in 2000 after 5 years of dormancy
b. Redesigned and renovated the terminal building
c. Equipped the airport with navigational aids and upgraded its facilities.
d. Attracted operations of airlines; Sosoliso, Chachangi, etc.
2. As Minister:
(a) Attracted and commissioned several community water and electricity projects.
(b) Attracted the rehabilitation of the Owerri-Umuahia road
(c) I attracted N100 million for the Umuocham Emekuku, Owerri North L.G.A. erosion site which has since been restored.
(d) Initiated a plantain plantation project for Owerri North L.G.A. women, planting 1,000 plantain suckers in 2002.
(e) I established a revolving loan scheme of N2 million for Owerri North Women in 2002.”
The rest can be read on her Campaign website: www.kemachikwe.com.ng
While you’re on there, check out her manifesto as well and see what she wants the people of Owerri to hold her accountable to. Just the other day, someone tried to bring up a false claim that Amb.Kema rigged her way through the Primaries. Please, spare me that! With all these accomplishments in her career profile, what is there to rig? Her work speaks for her so I don’t have any reason to doubt she will deliver because she has proven herself.
If you call me biased, you are free! The beauty of politics is that we can agree to disagree and still get along.
