Abia born business mogul, Philanthropist and Politician, Chief Alex Ikwechegh, has revealed the motivation behind his aspiration to represent Aba North/South Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives.

According to Ikwechegh, the call from his constituents, individuals from various walks of life, to represent them inspired him.

“I was quite puzzled when I came out and saw the number of people that came out asking that I come out and run for an election”.

“I think I will be doing them a great disservice if I decide not to. You cannot be leading a certain life style and watch your people suffer. People are suffering. I can tell you that people are suffering because I relate with the down trodden, old women, the abandoned”.

Aba North/South Federal constituents had in their numbers stormed the Alex Ikwechegh Foundation office in Aba, three weeks ago.

He added that the poor life condition of people is one of his driving force, to lead his people and change the situation.

“It weakens my soul to know that there are certain people who are opportune to do things for the people and they just do not. So, I will run.”

He assured that if elected, he will absorb every opportunity available   the lives of people better.

“I will attract very solid projects to Aba” Ikwechegh assured.

The philanthropic work of Chief Alex Ikwechegh which has run for almost a decade include; building and renovation of schools, donation of chairs, books, medical equipment to government schools, scholarships, food items for the poor, empowerment, etc.
