Also, the recent confirmation that the leaders and people of Okigwe zone, working on the instruction of the present government to produce a consensus speaker candidate among its ranking members for equity sake; chose Chiji considering that he is from a LGA in the zone that is yet to produce a speaker, makes it a perfect choice.

Barr Mike Ohaka explained that “of the six LGAs in the zone, Rt. Hon. Ike C Ibe from Obowo LGA was a speaker under the administration of late Evans Enwerem, Onuimo LGA produced Maxwell Duru that served under Enwerem and the current speaker, Chinedu Offor. Ihitte Uboma LGA had Senator Benjamin Uwajumogu that served on Rochas Okorocha’s first term and Acho Ihim from Okigwe LGA that just resigned over a week ago.
