In his speech, Hon. Felix Godsent Akhabue aka JOEFEL, he thank Elder Okosun Richard for receiving him and his team, adding that the idea to represent the good people of Okpebholo Constituency came as a result of his desire to replicate and consolidate on the good governance during his time as a local government chairman which no one has broken his record of performance.

“I know the plight of my people and I will do the needful for them if given the opportunity to represent them. Our people are not feeling the presence of the Federal Government adequately and it is my desire to bring their plight to the front burner”, Hon. Felix Akhabue stated”.

The Green Chamber hopeful emphasized that one does not need beyond one or two tenure to render his or her best services, as he didn’t go beyond a tenure as a council chairman before becoming the State ALGON Chairman, National Publicity Secretary, National President, Chair person – United Cities & Local Governments of West Africa, then later Africa, and to become the first vice president, World Conference of Mayors — these are records that no one has achieved before and after him among his contemporaries.

He analysed his achievements in terms of infrastructure within this period of 2-years & 10-months as a Council Chairman which none before and after him can measure with as records and structures are there till date for comparison.

While decrying the neglect of the area over the years by the Federal Government mostly in the area of infrastructure, the House of Representatives aspirant said he would encourage the Federal Government to tackle the issue of the annual flooding and other infrastructural need in the Constituency when elected, just as he said he is very familiar with the terrain and part of the reason he joined the race is to address the challenges confronting the people of the Constituency.
