Youths drawn from Orlu, Orsu and Orlu East Federal Constituency recently endorsed Chief Felix Idiga’s ambition to represent the constituency in the House of Representatives.
This was made known recently in a press conference at Orlu Civic Center, Orlu.
Speaking on behalf of the youth leaders from the three local governments that make up the constituency, Mazi Charles Sochima, who led the group and hails from Amaifeke in Orlu described the endorsement of Idiga as a step in the right direction and an opportunity for the zone to enjoy the dividends of democracy long denied it, since the return of democracy to the nation’s shores.
In his words, “Idiga is a God-sent individual who has been using his wealth and knowledge to uplift the downtrodden and the weak in society over the years.
“His humanitarian gestures through the Jafac Foundation, a philanthropic foundation he co-founded with his wife, Lady Chinyere Ada Idiga is one out of many attestations to God’s instrumentality of Chief Felix Idiga as a blessing to his people.
” We as a united body of youths comprising these three LGA’s which make up this Federal Constituency, after a number of several meetings and deliberations came to the unanimous decision to endorse the aspiration of Chief Felix Idiga to run for the seat as a member of the House of Representatives.
“Felix Idiga, a consummate business man and philanthropist is our first and only choice for that seat owing to his numerous feats in business as well as philanthropy. It is thus to this end that we believe that as our representative he would be able to bring and attract numerous democratic dividends as bothers on health, infrastructure, agriculture and jobs to the teeming youths of this constituency who are not enjoying such owing to the poor quality of representation witnessed now.
He then called on all institutions within the constituency, traditional rulers, civil servants, business people ,academicians and artisans to join them in supporting the candidacy of Felix Idiga affirming his belief in his ability and willingness to “fight for their collective interest as a people.”
Orient Daily recalls that this same Felix Idiga , last weekend, endowed artisans in Orlu zone with 60 million naira to boost their business activities.
