OTAMPA COMMUNITY ADOPTS AMOBI OGAH AND LABOUR PARTY.
By: Promise Udeh
The people of Otampa community in Isuikwuato LGA have adopted Chief Amobi Ogah and pledged their support for the new Nigeria project championed by Labour Party. Receiving the Labour Party candidate for Isuikwuato/Umunneochi Federal House of Representatives, the traditional ruler of Otampa, Eze Dr C. Y. Emesiobi (Ota 1 of Otampa) noted that he was excited to welcome Chief Amobi Ogah, the House of Assemble candidates, Hon Njoko Ifeanyi and the Labour Party entourage.
The Eze said “amongst all the House of Representatives candidates who have visited me, you are the most outstanding and I therefore give you my endorsement”. He cried that is disheartening to see that the railway line which cuts across his community and which was the link between Otampa and other parts of the world have all been removed by agency of the Federal Government without a single word of protest on the floor of the National Assembly by people who were elected to represent the Federal constituency. He charged Chief Amobi among other things, to make his voice heard at the National Assembly and ensure that all necessary moves are made to bring back the Eastern Railway corridor to the Southeast as it is been done in the Western and Northern parts of the country.
Responding, Chief Amobi Ogah said he was in the community to preach the message of hope championed by the Party leader, Mr Peter Obi.
Amobi decried the incessant insecurity and the fact that despite all the killings, abductions and scavengery of the railway lines that passes through the constituency and even the Southeast, no Southeast legislature have stood up to speak or protest the pains of the people on the floor of the National Assembly due to party loyalty to their ruling Party.
At the Orie Otampa market, the Labour Party was received by a mamoth crowd who were excited with the manifesto of Chief Amobi Ogah. They said that they were tired of the rice and wrapper sharing politics which have been used to keep them in bondage for decades, while they continue to suffer the neglect and pains of poverty, and kidnappings without any solution by the APC led federal government and PDP led state government.
Amobi assured them that Mr Peter Obi and incoming Labour Party governments will live up to expectations by restoring hope. Other speakers at the event include the Labour Party LGA chairman, Engr Harrison Onuke; Women leader, Madam Ahia “high tension”, Rev Obinna Oguh among others.
