Old Students Association of Community Secondary School, Nnokwa, Anambra State, has said the election of former Abia State governor, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, as senator, to represent Abia North, in the Ninth Senate, will usher in more economic and social development to Igboland.
The association said this in a March 12 congratulatory message wherein it described Kalu’s election as well-deserved.
“We join millions of your well-wishers to congratulate you on your well-deserved victory. Your election, we strongly believe, will usher in more economic and social development, not only in your constituency, but, in the entire Igbo land because we know your antecedents.
“For in you, Aheaejiagamba Igbere, the Igbo nation is guaranteed a stronger voice that nobody or circumstances can subdue.
“We strongly believe in you,” the association said in a congratulatory letter signed by the National President and National Secretary, Reverend Festus Abone and Ozo Gab Ndu Okpalaeze, respectively.
The association also thanked senator-elect Kalu for partnering with them during its official launch, last year, and added that the association would continue “to promote the ideals of good governance” for which Kalu is known.
“We equally want to thank you, again, most sincerely, for identifying with this association during our official launch last year.
“The lecture you gave to us at the launch, through your able representative, Assistant Inspector General (retd) Azubuko Udah, was inspiring and thought provoking. It has helped us greatly in running the affairs of our association. We remain grateful for this and for your financial contributions to the association, may God bless you sir.
The association added that it would continue to pray for Kalu’s success in all his endavours.
“We will continue to uphold you in our prayers as you continue to climb the political ladder of our nation. We pledge to remain solidly with you in your visions and aspirations for the South East and Nigeria, in general, while wishing you the best as you take your seat in the Red Chamber,” the association said.
