MATCHING WORDS WITH ACTION: THE HON CHRISTIAN AHIAKWO EXAMPLE
It was the Holy Bible that says that ‘ Faith without works is dead’. Truth be told, many Christians don’t match their confessions with works and therefore lack fruitfulness.
The ugly scenario is even more with politicians of these days.
They are known for scintillating words, especially; during campaigns but bad governance or poor representation when elected.
No wonder they expire faster than you can imaging, particularly, when their tenures are over.
Politicians come and go but only a few are able to change the world around them or make positive impacts in the lives of their people.
This is where the member representing ONELGA Constituency one (1) in the Rivers State House of Assembly, Hon (Elder) CHRISTIAN AHIAKWO comes in.
For him, being a fulfilled man does not only consist of the amount of wealth one has acquired for himself while his people suffer. His hallmark is to see others happy as well.
Maybe his name ‘ CHRISTIAN’ has affected him so much so that the word of God is now a light that guide his political activities unlike many others.
A devoted Christian and Elder of the Seventh Day Adventist Church, Hon Ahiakwo’s life pattern is built on the word of God that says, help the poor and the needy.
Full of energy, zeal and zest, Hon Christian Ahiakwo is a vibrant, visionary and development-driven politician, who has used his privileged position to bless many lives in his constituency and beyond.
A skilled and experienced environmental professional, the articulated and eloquent state lawmaker has added value to the society and is not tired of doing so.
The tall and chested lawmaker has not only shown capacity but has recorded unprecedented achievements that will outlive his time in the following areas:
In recognition of the popular saying that “health is life”, the lawmaker has through his foundation saved some lives of the people of his constituency, irrespective of political party affiliations.
At the last count, a total of thirteen (13) cases of hernia was successfully treated. Again, a case of fibroid was equally dealt with successfully and free eye tests programmes were carried out and treatment administered. At the moment, about six hundred medicated eyes glasses are expected for for distribution.
Education, they say is power and the bedrock of any society. This is possibly the reason, Hon. Ahiakwo decided to subsidize school fees for indigent students in the tertiary institutions.
Besides that, he took upon himself, the registration of WEAC and JAMB for many candidates.
TRADE & EMPOWERMENT
As a strong believer in the local parlance that says: ” don’t give them fish but teach them how to fish”, Hon Ahiakwo has empowered no fewer than eight (8) women with N30,000 each to boost their businesses among others.
Hon Ahiakwo believes that, it is only when people are alive that they can enjoy the dividends of democracy. That is why, he donated two Hilux vans to the security operatives for effective policing of his constituency.
He has eight (8) human oriented Motions to his credit. His motions border on environmental and health issues.
Hon Ahiakwo is aware that man deserves the best in life to make life meaningful . This perhaps, informed his giant strides in the provision of basic amenities. For instance,
He restored electricity to Ohiaugu community and the people who had long lived in darkness had cause to smile again.
He replicated such a fit in Ogbidi community.
He went further and executed a town hall project for Akabuka community and repeated same magnanimity in Elieta community.
Passionate Christian Ahiakwo, who is now nicknamed “Mr Project 11”, also executed a twelve thousand (12,000) litre each of three (3) units of solar power water system. They are located at Kreighani road, Ahia Orie axis and Akor Street all within Omoku town, headquarters of ONELGA.
As if that is not enough, the untiring Mr Project 11, Hon (Elder) Christian Ahiakwo has some ongoing projects to his credit, like the Ogbogu community’s Doctors and Nurses quarters and Oboburu Biology, Physics and Chemistry Laboratory.
In a matter of days, he will lay a foundation stone for a six (6) class room block in Erema community.
Hon ( Elder) Christian Ahiakwo is seeking a reelection into the State House of Assembly in 2019.
He promised to do more, if elected for the next four years.
