According to him, he withdrew his ambition for the same position when he saw a man from Ehime-Mbanowith intimidating record who can bring development to the people.of his constituency.

He said, “I inclined to withdraw my ambition when I saw an Ihitte-Uboma person (Hon. Jonas) who has an intimidating record and personality; who can give Okigwe-South profound name at the green chambers, knowing so well that any interest/agenda beyond that amounts to marginalization.

“Today, Ihitte/Uboma has no police station, no high court, no magistrate court, and nothing is being said about that. Ihitte-Uboma seems to be backward in the area of amenities, it hops on one leg far behind others (Obowo and Ehime-Mbano) in development, that also accounts to why their son needed to go”, Duruji expressed.

“I’m overwhelmed by this pally today, you are landlords in the FCT, host to anyone coming to represent our people. You understand the high-wire intrigues of our national politics. You are like tour guides and forest rangers here, your dept and wisdom is sine qua non. You’re the ear and eye of our people at home, I’m proud to be in your midst.

“When I was at the House of Assembly, regardless of the priorities and focus at that time, notwithstanding also many developmental projects I attracted, I placed over 20 sons and daughters of Ihitte/Uboma on salary.

“My door was open to my constituents and non-constituents alike. Support me, trust me, I will bring back all that Ihitte-Uboma desired. I will give what belongs to Obowo, I will not compromise interest of Ehime-Mbano. No part of Okigwe-south shall be relegated under my stewardship and I will not regale you with tales.

“I am not a greenhorn in this business. I know what our people need. All parts of Okigwe -South are my home. I will breath fresh air to our ailing infrastructures and security.
