We started from nothing and we are somewhere. Now that we have a platform for large support, the sky is not even our limit.”

365Daily – The member representing Ogbaru Federal Constituency of Anambra State, Hon. Victor Afam Ogene, has expressed gratitude to his constituents for their overwhelming support during the 2023 elections.

Speaking with journalists at the thanksgiving ceremony in his village on Sunday, February 25, 2024, Ogene said his voters get the credit for their unwavering support that gave him victory at the drawn-out House of Representatives election.

He said, “I feel fulfilled, coming back to the same people who gave me support not once but twice during the last general elections.

“As you’ll recall, one year ago, there were general elections in Nigeria and we won but some shenanigans decided to cause a rerun in several units, some of which were actually done on 25th of February,2023. But to the glory of God, we still won on April 15.

“Still not satisfied, they took to the judiciary, which is their right anyway, but after those processes, the tribunal and the Appeal Courts, we still came up successful. So, it’s only right to come back, first of all thank God and thank the people.

The Labour Party Reps leader restated his commitment to ensure that his people enjoy the benefit of good representation in the National Assembly, which is already evident in some interventions he did recently on some roads in the area.

Ogene said, “I’m one of those who don’t believe in state or federal roads. It’s your people that traverse the roads. Even this Onitsha/ Atani/Ekwusigo road,a lot of people going down to the East- Imo, South South of Akwa Ibom, Cross River, they pass through this road. So, if the road is unpassable it affects the people who live in Ogbaru and the people who pass through Ogbaru. So whatever we can do to make sure the road, at least is passable before the state and federal Government interventions, we’ll always do that.

“So that was why we did that( intervention). We are doing several other interventions. The last one was free JAMB and WAEC for some students and we are also starting a scholarship scheme with 20 university undergraduates and it’s not a one-off thing. We will pay their tuition until they graduate and as the year goes on, we keep multiplying.”

Speaking on the Ogwuikpele/Osamala road project, Ogene, who is the Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of 365Daily, added, ” We have taken some legislative steps by raising it as a motion and then the Federal Ministry of Works and Budget were mandated. But you know that the budget process takes almost a year. At the time that motion came, the budget for 2024 was almost at hand. But with the time we have now, before next year’s budget, I’m sure it will get better funding.


We started from nothing and we are somewhere. Now that we have a platform for large support, the sky is not even our limit.”

Earlier, Hon. Paul Namchin, who represented the Speaker of the House, Hon. Tajudeen Abass, described the crisis rocking LP as just party politics.

However, he passed a vote of confidence on the national executive of LP. He said, “We are supportive of the national executive. Apart of being supportive, we feel all those are part of party politics- you always see some gimmicks from here and there, may be within or outside the party.”

Amongst the dignitaries who graced the occasion was the Senator representing Anambra North Senatorial District, Sen. Dr Tony Nwoye. The leader of LP, former Anambra State Governor, Mr Peter Obi, who was not present at the event, received encomiums from his supporters.
