The lawmaker said the All progressive Congress federal government has brought untold hardship to the people adding that the Peoples Democratic party was repositioning itself to wrest power from the ruling party so as to give Nigerians purposeful and people-oriented leadership.
“We have suffered so much under APC. I am happy that there are signs and signals that PDP is going to rescue Nigeria from the situation of hopelessness and pains we have found ourselves since 2015 at the federal level”.
According to him, Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi deserves re-election as he has achieved over 90 % of his electoral promises in 2015 to the people, assuring that “we will mobiles the women group, youth, market women, faith-based organization, community based organization, community associations, leaders of thought, traditional rulers” to ensure sweeping victory for Governor Ugwuanyi.
On his achievements in his first outing at the state legislative chamber, Nnajiofor maintained that many of his constituents have benefited from his bursary scheme, medical outreaches and other social intervention programmes and promised to do more if elected for a second term.
“We will try to see that we reach out to the people and say thank you through social intervention programmme on public health support initiative; the medical outreach in the wards, in the development centres, community to community medical outreach, which we launched on the 14th of December 2018”.
“We have given bursary to less privileged and indigent students in our tertiary institutions and secondary public schools. On the 26th of October, we launched our support for public schools and colleges by giving them certain amount of money. I started with Oha and Onitsha Agu. It will be replicated in all the fourteen wards”.
“I will be serving more. I will be doing more to live a legacy and to also improve the fortunes of our party so that everybody will be happy. PDP is on ground and people love PDP in Enugu state and I pray that as we are also working hard in the state, PDP will also take over in the national federal govt so that APC will go and rest”.
