Conducting the conferment rituals on the performing lawmaker at his country home in Amuzu Aboh Mbaise LGA, the revered monarch declared that the unanimous conferment of the title on Hon Eddy Obinna was necessitated by a barrage of Community development projects engineered by the Lawmaker.
According to the traditional Ruler, it includes the Lawmaker’s multiple empowerment activities since his election as House member.
The Chimezie Ebogu II of Amuzu Nwenkwo Autonomous Community who was full of praises for the Lawmaker for making the people of Aboh Mbaise proud as a golden voice in the House, as well as his expertise in attending to legislative matters, averred that the communities, especially Amuzu Nwenkwo have benefited immensely from the Lawmaker’s uncommon representation, hence, the need to reciprocate such lofty legislative gestures by the Lawmaker.
In his response shortly after receiving the honour, the Aboh Mbaise Lawmaker who received thunderous applause from people of Aboh Mbaise across political party divide; expressed gratitude to the Royal father, the entire people of Amuzu community, and other sister Autonomous communities who saw reasons to endorse the conferment of such a revered title; noting that such gesture by the community will spur him to do more for the area and the LGA at large.
The Nguru Nweke-born workaholic Lawmaker whose knack for legislative strides is second to none, reassured the people of the community and Aboh Mbaise at large of continued effective representation, especially the speedy passage of people-oriented Bills and motions, which he said will have direct impact on the community and Aboh Mbaise people at large.
