“According to him, the Chieftaincy title conferred on Hon. Orji was in recognition of his out standing performances and services to humanity, and
to reciprocate his wonderful achievements in Onitsha South Local Government precisely Fegge area.

“Several successive Caretaker Chairmen have served in Onitsha South LG but it is only Hon. Orji that has attracted huge transformation. He has done more than what he promised when he called stakeholders meeting and no place in Onitsha has more roads than Fegge.

“He understands that an average man needs access roads, water and clean environment. Infact, I will campaign for him in his elective position. Even if I have not eaten his money, I have matched it with my legs,” Fr Nwagbara stated.

The excited LGA Chairman, Hon. Orji said he was delighted for the honour and stated that the major impediment in Fegge is gutters, attributing it to location of Fegge.

He recalled how he assured Fegge Community during stakeholders meeting that he would make a positive change in Fegge and by God’s grace he has not disappointed them.

According to him, he started aggressive desilting of gutters before he embarked on road construction.

”There is no way you will construct roads without getting gutters right. It is my intervention that made Governor Charles Soludo to award all the roads in Onitsha South.

“So, Governor Soludo loves Onitsha South and I urge you people to compensate him by re-electing him for the second tenure”, he added.

In their separate speeches, the Anambra State Association of Town Union (ASATU), Comrade Duru Chiadikobi and Chairman of Landlords and Stakeholders Onitsha South LGA, Chief Okwudiri Obinwanne, reaffirmed that Chief Orji has transformed Onitsha South Local Government Area, tremendously.
