The Senator-elect for Anambra Central, Chief Victor Umeh, has promised to champion the cause of the less privileged and down trodden during his tenure in the upper chamber of the Senate.

Umeh, who recorded a landslide victory in last Saturday’s senatorial rerun election in seven local government areas in Anambra State, has pledged to support the leadership of the 8th Senate as soon as he is sworn in.

Speaking to newsmen in Awka yesterday, he said he was well aware that he had limited time to spend before the end of the 8th Senate, noting that he is never time bound when it comes to things he believes he could do.

Umeh said: “Lost time is lost. We look forward to the present and the future. I still have 18 months to work for my people. I have always said I am never limited with time.

“By the time I get there, I will do my utmost best to support the present leadership of the Senate. I will try to be ingenious in making my own contribution to the good of my people and the entire Nigerians.

“I will explore the possibility of receiving the needed attention from the leadership. They have to look at my constituency with pity for what has happened to us.”

Umeh attributed his victory to divine intervention even as he hailed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for its firm disposition at ensuring that the election was conducted.

The new lawmaker described as selfish those who insisted on keeping the seat vacant till the expiration of the current Senate,

He also applauded the Court of Appeal for rising to the occasion, as well as the Federal high Court judge that nearly caused the miscarriage of justice by doing what he could have done ab initio.
