Comrade Precious Nwadike, Senatorial hopeful for Imo West senatorial district who has been on a consultation visits to Lagos, Abuja and other cities of Nigeria, on Monday said his first priority when elected into the red chamber is to solve the Umuna/Orlu erosion problem.
While taking questions from one of the participants at a town hall meeting with Orlu indigenes in Lagos, Nwadike disclosed that his intentions is to work with relevant government agencies to end the Umuna/Orlu erosion menace which has sent majority of the people in the area packing.
This, he promised to do within one year as a senator.
He said that successive senators from the district have taken the electorates for granted so much that they cared less of their plights but delighted in pursuing contracts using their position to the detriment of the people.
Nwadike, a journalist by profession hinted of how he intend converting the erosion site into tourist attraction centre where not only Imolites will visit especially during festive season but people across the globe as lot of business outfits would be established there to raise revenue for the people, including world class car washing park that would drive revenue for youths in the area.
“As an environment expert, we will bring our knowledge to bear in addressing the ecological problems in the zone. We won’t abandon our legislative duties to be running around for contracts”.
Responding, the group led by Mr Lawrence Anyasoro, a UNZIK trained accountant turned importer commended Nwadike for his decision to represent the zone at the red chambers, describing him as the best among others in the race from the zone.
He also describes Comrade Nwadike as a man of honour who has over the years kept fate with the people and will not disappoint the electorate if elected as Senator for the zone.
Mr Anyasoro pledged to donate campaign support materials for the campaign organisation while assuring he would mobilize Orlu people in Lagos to support the project.
