WHAT AN AWESOME EXPERIENCE IN THE SERVICE OF GOD AND HUMANITY IN ORU WEST LGA NAY IMO STATE AND NIGERIA.

Today, the 21st day of July 2022 is about the 839 days, or better still, 2 years, 3 months and 19 days to which the Government of Imo State under His Excellency, Most Distinguished Senator Hope Odidika Uzodinma (Onwa Ndi Imo) Graciously and through the instrumentality of God Almighty, gave me an audacious platform and space in Oru West Local Government Area, the State - Imo, and Nigeria, to explore and exploit the provided opportunities to render selfless services to God and Humanity.

It was an opportunity to test and prove my skills and abilities into showcasing my innate capacities to stimulate, activate and execute some of my burning desires to navigate the available opportunities into Humanitarian and societal benefits.

Though, faced with obvious distractions, but with trusts in God Almighty, I remained relatively resolute and steadfast to offer my services to my people of Oru West, Imo State and Nigeria.

As the Interim Management Committee Chairman of Oru-West Local Government Council and the Imo State Chairman of the Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON), I did my best to coordinate the available opportunities to provide some dividends of democracy to the 10 INEC Wards of the Local Government Area, the 24 Autonomous Communities, as well as provide some Coordinated services to the State and of course, the National office of ALGON.

It was an interesting experience working with the entire Staff and Management of Oru West Council, my Distinguished Colleagues and Chairmen of the other 26 Local Government Councils of the State, my Media Team, the entire Leadership of National ALGON, my other colleagues from other States of the Federation.

It was a period of Laurels from various Institutions and Corporate bodies in recognition of my humble services to humanity.

In any case, I unreservedly dedicated all the Laurels and Awards, to His Excellency, The Governor of Imo State, Most Dist. Sen. Hope Uzodinma, who God used in facilitating the platforms and provided the enablements for these socio-political exploits.

I equally dedicated the Awards and Laurels to my Amiable wife- Chizzy, who doubles as my friend, my companion, my prayer warrior, my backbone and my gist mate, my jewels of inestimable values, for her consistent encouragements motivational and inspirational qualities that have petered me into my resilience and trudging capabilities.

I can not forget my entire 12 crew of Interim Management Committee members (my Councillors), the Ward Party Chairmen, Women and Youth Leaders, and my revered and respected 24 Traditional Rulers of the 24 Autonomous Communities of the Local Government Area, under the Leadership of His Royal Highness, Eze A.C Obih, Eze Udo of Mgbidi Ancient Kingdom, as the Chairman of Oru West Council of Traditional Rulers.

As the dissolution of the over 2 years old Interim Management Committee takes effect from today, it gives room for the State proposed much awaited Local Government Elections.

This development has opened up the windows for yet another opportunity for wider consultations, interface and interactions with our political family, Leaders and people of Oru West Local Government Area, to chat a course of qualitative and quantitative services and provision of more dividends of democracy to our people.

While we await the details, guidelines and the probable rules of engagement for the fast and forthcoming Imo State Independent Electoral Commission's (ISIEC) Local Government Elections, I wish us all a better and fruitful days ahead.....

May we live to testify the goodness of God in us...

While I still remain Yours Truly, Please accept the assurances of my esteemed regards.

Adm.Hon.Willie T.C Okolieogwo FCIA
Immediate Past Chairman
Oru West Lga/ALGON Imo State.

“Let me specifically appreciate all our constituents across the length and bredth of the Country for their resilience, confidence, hope and patience in all the long and ardours journey since 1993.
“Though we may have some reasons to celebrate looking back, it’s still a voyage.


“Let me use this opportunity to say that the rural dwellers are the conscience of the Nigeria and the goose that lay the golden egg with dreadful challenges which resonate within our communities and are like landmines to our development and growth.


“It is however important that hope should be rekindled as we continue to have faith in our Democracy. “We appreciate all that has continued to stand up for issues bothering on strengthening the Local Governments and Councils.
“We appreciate Mr President for his support to the development of the Councils”, he stated.

“I will conclude by encouraging all of us that there are sliver linings in the horizon which suggest better things ahead. We shall trust in God for better.


“ALGON will continue to canvass for a strong LGAs and Councils that will ensure that development of our Communities remains an all time priority and make our founding fathers proud because it will be an assault on the psyche of framers of Local Governments and Area Councils and as a tier of government and one that is the closest to the masses of which we are supposed to remain hugely indebted to them all hence we shall all struggle and make sacrifices to see that the system enjoys freedom, unhindered access for more meaningful impact”, Hon. Alabi said.
