When on Sunday, November 7, 2020, the Anglican Bishop of Orlu Archdiocese, Rt. Rev. Benjamin Chinedum Okeke, JP, honoured Deputy Speaker of the Imo State House of Assembly, Rt.Hon. Amara Iwuanyanwu with the Pillar of Support Award in recognition of his invaluable commitment and contributions to the growth of the Diocese, the opposition and his political rivals dismissed it as one of those awards churches conferred on well meaning individuals and politicians during electioneering season.
But not too many of these elements, critics and political detractors knew that in fulfilment of his promise to the Anglican Diocese of Orlu and in fond memory of his late father, Chief Sir. Chyna Ignatius Iwuanyanwu, Ksc (Ugochinyere Mba), the Imo Deputy Speaker and member representing Nwangele Constituency, Rt. Hon. Amara Chyna Iwuanyanwu, Ksc, Msc, alongside his lovely wife Lady Shirley Iwuanyanwu and a few family members, on Saturday, September 19, 2020, donated a multi- million Naira befitting 4 bedroom ultra modern parsonage to the New Covenant Church Amuzi, Dim na Nume Autonomous Community in Nwangele LGA, Imo State; which the newly installed Anglican Bishop of Orlu Diocese at the time , Rt. Rev. Benjamin Chinedum Okeke in the company of his predecessor, the Emeritus ArchBishop of the Diocese, Most Rev. Dr. B. C. I. Okoro, commissioned and dedicated to the glory of God.
Judging from the background of the foregoing, Hon Amara Chyna Iwuanyanwu , Ksc, without being guilty of sounding immodest, has demonstrated capacity in leadership since his assumption of office as the member representing Nwangele Constituency in the Imo State House of Assembly. As a state legislator, he has remained relentless in his key roles in the enactment of legislations and formulation of policies aimed at empowering and transforming lives of Imo citizens. This is in addition to his outstanding economic upliftment of members of his Nwangele constituency as being witnessed in his massive empowerment schemes, human capital and infrastructural development across the 11 wards that made up of Nwangele LGA.
No doubt, Rt. Hon. Amara Chyna Iwuanyanwu; an unrepentant foot -solider and Ambassador of the Shared Prosperity Administration under Gov. Hope Uzodimma , commands a political clout that has made him one of the most productive legislators in the 9th Imo State House of Assembly in terms of constituency projects. It is however, verifiable to note that he has to his credit developmental projects in the following areas; road construction and repairs, electricity projects, donation of transformers to communities, renovation of schools, payment of hospital bills, donation of start -ups capital to small business owners, payment of jamb forms to students among others. This is apart from his core mandate of robust legislation as a state lawmaker. It’s only a few of his colleagues can fit into his big shoes or match his track records in the likes of; Rt. Hon.Amb. Uche Ogbuagu , Ikeduru Constituency, Rt. Hon. Kanayo Onyemaechi Owerri West Constituency, Hon. Michael Onyemaechi Njoku , Ihitte Uboma Constituency, etc.
Amara Iwuanyanwu, reputed as a prolific sponsor of people -oriented bills and motions as there is no week in session that he does not present a motion or bill that has a direct impact on the wellbeing and development of the people. Available data show that he has empowered over 2000 members of his Nwangele Constituency through direct job placements as well as his various employment and entreprenurship opportunities and schemes. Using his exalted and strategic position as the Deputy Speaker of the Imo State House of Assembly and No. 4 citizen in the state to productively facilitate the appointments of many Nwangele sons into the Shared Prosperity Administration as Commissioners, Special Advisers , Senior Special Assistants to the governor of Imo State. It’s simply a show of capacity in leadership which must not be wish away by his detractors, blind critics and rivals. For us, the reward for hard work is more work as Nwangele people prepare their minds to return him for a second term in office.
Rt Hon Amarachi Chyna Iwuanyanwu’s leadership acumen stems from his vast education, exposure and discipline as a person. He is no doubt, a name to reckon with in the current 3R Administration led by Sen. Hope Uzodimma. His ability to efficiently unite and coordinate Nwangele people with the expressed approval and strong support of the critical stakeholders speaks volumes of his outstanding leadership qualities which must be further harnessed for greater assignment as he is unanimously returned back for a deserved second term in office to sustain his laudable people -oriented projects, empowerment programs and infrastructural development to the glory of God and for the good of ndi Nwangele.
Consolidated Capacity till 2023 !
