Umeh takes oath of office amid senate restructuring
Former National Chairman, All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) Chief Victor Umeh took the oath of office as Senator to represent Anambra Central Senatorial District as Senate embarked on restructuring process.
The oath of office which was administered to him by the President of the Senate Dr. Bukola Saraki in Abuja came after two years the senatorial District had been without representation.
Umeh, asked for implementation of the 2014 National Conference Report, saying that the report was comprehensive enough to begin a new course for a new Nigeria adding that the report addressed various issues bedeviling the country.
On the issue of restructuring which had generated a lot of debate and controversies in the polity, politician explained: “restructuring was not tantamount to a disintegration of the corporate entity called Nigeria, but a means of rearranging certain anomalies in the system, so as to end or reduce agitations”.
He maintained that Nigeria could only prosper when all citizens are equal opportunities and treated justly in the affairs of the country. The Anambra Central Senator lamented that his constituents lost so many fortunes as a result of the vacuum that existed in the Senate during the period of political tussle amongst the contestants to the seat.
Umeh said that he was comforted that justice was done in the protracted lawsuit, saying that it was better than he got justice, even though it took a long time.
