Ado/Okpokwu &Ogbadibo: Hon. Michael Unogwu Join The Race
Idoma-Enone` people has agreed and resolved to get it right this time around by putting “a square peg in a square hole”.
Hon. Michael Otsogbu Unogwu popularly known as #MoU# will sign an #MoU# with Idoma-Enone` people and fill the vacuum of ineffective and poor #representation# come 2019.
As 2019 draws closer, some “elites and politician’s” of our land who hitherto has held one or two political positions, achieved remarkable success and excellence in either their private or public engagements but has no tangible “project or initiative” to point at that has and still influencing the lives of the people positively are now galvanizing, masquerading as “lover’s of the people”, claiming to hold them in high esteem and promising to empower and better their lives and living standard if voted to the green chamber of national assembly come 2019.
Constituent’s of Ado, Okpokwu, Ogbadibo federal constituency has been crying of total absence of effective and quality representation since inception of representative democracy in Nigeria. We’ve never had a perfect man for the “Abuja green chamber job”. When ever electioneering period comes, they usually appears as ” sheep’s” but they are nothing but “wolves in sheep’s cloth” to hoodwink, promise and/or make so many passionate appeals to us (electorates). Mostly, if not every time, we fall into their deceptive traps, believe in them and give them our mandate. The moment they step into the basement complex; the seat of power (Abuja), our liaising, communicating and relationship with them becomes that of master over slavery and no longer of representative/messenger and his people.
With the deceptive and sweet talk mechanism they (political office aspirant’s) have in stock now, I am now afraid but compelled to ask; must someone be a political office holder (appointive or elective) before they influence or develop their people and society?If you can’t develop and empower your people and society with your wealth, power and success at the level of your private or personal capacity, you certainly can’t change the story when voted to political office………….. this is a simple and elementary understanding of human behaviour and nature. We will not be deceived this time around. The above analogy and so many other factors put together were the conviction of the “Ado, Okpokwu & Ogbadibo” people before their continuous scout for a dependable, reliable, trustworthy, people oriented, loyal, committed, effective, quality and accessible #representative# come 2019 landed them at the door step of Hon. Michael Unogwu to request for his service for the Ado, Okpokwu & Ogbadibo legislative job.
With the current crowd, massive support of the people, political manoeuvring, strategy, alignment and intense consultation on ground, there is little or no doubt that the Ado, Okpokwu & Ogbadibo federal constituency seat will be occupied by Hon. Michael Unogwu #MoU# come 2019. HON. MICHAEL UNOGWU IN CONTEXT
As the saying goes; “a golden fish has no hidden place in the river”, the steering leadership qualities and competency of Hon. Michael Unogwu was standing very tall and shinning like a light in darkness in the midst of other aspirant’s for the Idoma-Enone` seat, hence, the enormous, voluminous and overwhelming support and endorsement Hon. Michael Unogwu is getting from stakeholders, decision maker’s and entire masses of the constituency.

After an excellent performance by passing the 8 subjects of GCE in 1988, his relentless quest for further education drove him to the School of Basic Studies (SBS), Makurdi in 1990 where he scored 13 points in IJMB.
