As the Imo North senatorial district bye-election draws nearer, one name that has become recurring is Chief Emmanuel Okewulonu.

Chief Okewulonu is the candidate of the People Democratic Party (PDP).

Committed to the betterment of the lives of his people, he has not looked back in his efforts to give back to society by helping the needy.

Thus, his people have endorsed him, insisting that his emergence as the senator representing the senatorial district will restore hope to the people of the Okigwe zone.

Heeding the call of his people to serve, Chief Okewulonu is also motivated by the need to change how his people have been short-changed by past representatives.

“In Okigwe zone today, we do not have a single good road, unemployment is high, infrastructure too, and there is decay in the system.

“The poverty level is high, I just want to change the narrative of leadership and make sure whatever allocation that comes from the Federal government reaches the people.

“I don’t like seeing widows living in abject poverty, I build small apartments for them and they are comfortable. I have even reconstructed roads and erected street light and many other things in my local government.”

A former customs officer and businessman, Chief Okewulonu will use his years of experience from the public and private sector to influence the development of Okigwe zone.

“I was a customs officer before I came into business and politics. So, I am coming with the two experiences. I want to make sure that things are done rightly in Okigwe zone.

“In the past 20 years of my life, I have been helping the poor, every 26th of December, I cater to all the widows in my local government, we buy wrapper for every widow, every handicapped, every less privileged, I share 50kg of rice to everyone, I have sent people overseas to do business, I have set up businesses for people here in Nigeria, so I have a lovely scorecard with the people,” Chief Okewulonu said about his antecedents.
