Mr. Hope Uzodimma, senator representing Imo  West Senatorial District, has charged elected public office holders from  Imo State  to be prudent and transparent in the management of public resources instead of   betraying  the trust and mandate of the electorate.

He also charged them not lose sight of the fact that they would give account of their stewardship to the people at the end of their tenure.

The Senator gave charge last  Saturday at a grand Civic reception held for elected public officers from Orlu Zone by the Royal fathers from the Area.

Uzodinma said it was imperative for  all elected public officers that the day of reckoning awaited  them.

According to him "all of us (elected public officers) must bear in mind that we must give account of our stewardship to the people at the end of our tenure. We can therefore not afford to betray the trust of the electorate nor be reckless with the management of public resources" .

The senator who spoke on behalf of other national assembly members who were also received by the royal fathers warned that the era when public officers could get away with incompetence or abuse of public trust was gone, adding that the electorate had become politically aware that it had become inevitable that elected public officers must give account of their stewardship to the people at the end of their tenure.

He assured the traditional rulers that as the senator representing Orlu Zone at the national assembly, he would do all within his powers to forge political unity among Orlu Politicians.

"I am aware that when we urinate together on one spot it foams abundantly just as I also know that a bundle of broom cannot be broken by a battalion of soldiers but effortlessly broken by infants when separated as single broom sticks. So the need for unity among us (politicians) from Orlu cannot be overemphasized"

"I am aware that when we urinate together on one spot it foams abundantly just as I also know that a bundle of broom cannot be broken by a battalion of soldiers but effortlessly broken by infants when separated as single broom sticks. So the need for unity among us (politicians) from Orlu cannot be overemphasized", he stated.

Mr. Uzodinma commended the royal fathers for using the reception to bring all elected public office holders together irrespective of political divides and assured them that the underlining message of the event would not be lost on the politicians.

The senator assured the royal fathers that the on-going constitution reform would grant them a more visible role in the nation comparable to that of their counterparts in other parts of the country.

On the need for the South East Geopolitical Zone to get a sixth state, Uzodimma said all hands must be on desk to actualize this, stressing that Orlu town should brace up as the new capital of the new South-East State.
Earlier in his address, the Chairman of Orlu Council of Ndieze and Traditional Ruler of Amaifeke, Eze E.C. Okeke, said the occasion was conceived to remind Orlu public office holders to work together for the development of Orlu, irrespective of their political party leanings.

“The issue of party affiliations must not be allowed to divide us to avoid our losing focus”, adding that “it is on this note that we urge our sons and daughters to please, reconcile their differences and re-strategize for the continued development of Orlu Zone”, he added.

Other national assembly members who were present were Jerry Alagboso, Orlu/Orsu/Oru East Federal Constituency, Hon. Jones Onyereri, Nkwere/Isu/Njaba/Nwangele, Federal Constituency, State Hose of Assembly Members and other dignitaries.

Our correspondent gathered that the traditional rulers were not happy with  the absence of the State Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, an Orlu son, who was conspicuously  absent though he was invited. He did not send a representative. 

Other dignitaries who graced the event were Domingo Obende, a serving senator representing Edo Norht Senatorial District, who  represented the Senate President, the Chairman of the occasion, Mr .Awuzie,  the acting  Vice Chancellor of Imo State University, Mr. George Obiozor, Former Nigerian Ambassador to the United States, Nze I.M.O Omuna, Former SSG Imo State, Mr. Douglas Acholonu, Former Deputy Governor of Imo State and  Eze Duruiheoma, State PDP Chairman
