My name is Chief Peter Obiano Madubueze, Okaka Anam, from Umueze Anam in Anambra West Local Government Area.
I joined active politics in 2005 and in 2007, I contested for this same position, House of Representatives under the defunct Action Congress (AC). In short I was the founder of the party in Anambra East and West Federal Constituency.
Our educated people don’t get employed, especially federal jobs.
Someone like me knew about the Federal Character Commission but the people didn’t know how to get there, and so I decided to contest to give my people jobs.
You see, I don’t believe that legislators don’t build roads. In the budget legislators make, they lobby to add the needs of his or her constituents and money is being added because you are there. By so doing that, they attract a lot of projects to their people and my target is that every year the needs of my people are included in the budget estimates. It is by doing so that we say that legislators build roads and other key infrastructure, but lawmakers do not touch this money physically.
