Hon. Chimaobi Atu, a member of the federal House of Representatives for Enugu North/South Constituency while speaking with Daily Gazette correspondent over the weekend, urged President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to urgently employ all legitimate and innovative means to restore the country’s battered economy and curb insecurity.

The lawmaker said that the challenges facing Nigerians are not new, but must be conquered.

“Now is the time to roll our sleeves and get the job done. Top on my legislative agenda is to give my people a voice in the 10th Assembly through quality representation. I shall work closely with the new House Leadership to achieve this. Expectedly, the composition of the 10th Assembly suggests that there will be extremely robust legislative engagements and I will be ready. My colleagues in the Labour Party and I, are willing to engage in a bipartisan process that will serve our people and the entire country. I will work with my esteemed colleagues in the Green Chamber to sponsor quality bills and issue-based motions. As someone who toured the entire 26 wards in my constituency during the campaign, I know what the issues are. We have developed a dynamic feedback mechanism to engineer effective communication among our people.”

On his agenda for his constituents, Atu said “I concluded arrangements in our constituency office where everyone can channel his or her suggestions and challenges. Those who have followed me on Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms will attest to the fact that we have been very active online. As I promised during the campaign, I will hold quarterly Town Hall Meetings in Enugu North and South. This meeting will enable me to know where my people want to go and not where I think they should go.

“Agriculture is one critical sector that will gulp my attention in the House. As the world gradually moves away from fossil fuel, agriculture and technology must be given all the backing they deserve. We shall sponsor bills and motions that will ensure that agriculture and technology take their place in our economy. We shall attract federal government intervention projects in these two areas to our Constituency. I shall partner with the Federal government to complete the Amaechi Awkunana multipurpose dam and rural water supply scheme in Enugu South. This will help agricultural activities and support Enugu State government’s efforts in providing water for the citizens. Two weeks ago, I visited a building where the first Tech Hub will be sited in Enugu South LGA. The tech hub will improve the tech skills of young people and expand opportunities for them in the areas of web design, artificial intelligence, coding and social media marketing. Next week, I will conclude arrangements on where to site the second tech hub in Enugu North. We are already speaking with our friends in the Federal Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy on this issue.

“Apart from agriculture and technology, young people in my Constituency will be trained in small-scale businesses and other skills. They will be given start-up funding to establish businesses. Make no mistakes, there will be scientific methods to monitor this process and ensure their speedy growth. Education is also my top priority. Without education, this nation is doomed. Therefore, my colleagues and I, will vote overwhelmingly for an increased education budget. With the removal of subsidy, the Federal Government is expected to channel resources to education, health, economy, security and other critical areas”.
