The Speaker Imo State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Barr Kennedy Chidozie Ibeh, and the Honourable members  have called on Imolites to take advantage of the on-going Voters” Registration Exercise to obtain their Permanent Voters’ Card (P.V.C). The lawmakers noted that voters card is their  power to choose the right candidate during the election.

This was sequel to a Motion Of Urgent Public Importance moved by Hon Chief  Eddy Obinna, member representing Aboh Mbaise State Constituency.

Speaking on the motion,  which was seconded by Hon. Blyden Amajirionwu, member representing Ngor Okpala State Constituency,  the Chief Sponsor of the motion, Hon. Obinna,  explained the need for Imolites to take advantage of the  registration exercise and  obtain their PVCs.

He  said  Imolites should take their destiny in  their own hands by getting  their PVCs which empowers them to vote a candidate of their choice.

He therefore prayed that the House should  urge the Governor, His Excellency  Senator  Hope Uzodimma,  to direct all political appointees to go to their communities to educate their people on the need to obtain voters card.

Also, He prayed that the Rt. Hon. Speaker should direct the House Members to take time off and visit their  constituencies  to  educate  their constituents on the need to get their PVCs.. The Head Of Service  was also urged  to do  same on the Civil Servants.

During a  robust debate, the member representing Oru East, State Constituency, Hon Chigozie Nwaneri, while making case for civil servants to obtain their PVCs,  harped on the  need for Imo people to arm  themselves  with the voting power..

Also, .member representing Njaba, Rt. Hon. Uju Onwudiwe and her  Isiala Mbano State Constituency counterpart, Rt. Hon. Chiji Collins all aired their views on the need to tell Imo people to  obtain their  Voters Card.

Rt. Hon. Chiji Collins opined that  Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) should join the Catholics and Anglicans in sensitizing  their members to get their PVCs..

The Speaker,  having observed the commendable role that   His Excellency, Sen Hope Uzodimma  and the  security agencies are playing to  ensure peace and security in Imo,  called for a voice vote to all the prayers of the Chief Sponsor,  and the motion passed through.

Similarly, The House of Assembly  Bill No 9,  A bill for a Law to repeal the Laws Authentication Law No.9 of  1980 and Enact a Law to make provision for the Authentication and Recording of Laws Passed by the Imo State House of Assembly and other related matter, which was committed to Committee of the Whole, read  the third time and passed.

The Clerk was ordered to produce clean copies, for the Governor’s assent.

A minute silence was observed by the honourable members in honour of Mr. Uchenna Onyemaechi Akalonu, the younger brother to  the Majority Leader, Hon. Kanayo Onyemaechi, who died recently….
