Former National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Chief Victor Umeh on Thursday took oath of office as the Senator representing Anambra Central District.

The oath of office was administered on him by Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki in Abuja.

The Senatorial district had been without representation in the last two years.

Umeh, while briefing journalists afterwards, called for the implementation of the 2014 National Conference Report, saying that the report was comprehensive enough to chat a new course for a new Nigeria.

He noted that the report addressed various issues currently causing agitation in the country, including the issue of restructuring which had generated a lot of debate and controversies in the polity.

Umeh explained that restructuring was not tantamount to disintegration of the corporate entity called Nigeria as many people had insinuated, but a means of rearranging certain anomalies in the system so as to end or reduce agitations.

He said that Nigeria could only prosper when all citizens were given equal opportunities and treatment in the affairs of the nation, pointing out that those opposed to restructuring did not want Nigeria to make progress.

The former APGA chairman lamented that his constituents lost so much fortunes as a result of the vacuum that existed in the Senate during the period of political tussle among the contestants to the seat.

He, however, said that he was comforted by the fact that justice was done in the protracted law suit, saying that it was better that he got justice, even though it took a long time to happen.

The lawmaker noted that the only way democracy could survive in the country was for everybody to obey the rule of law, stressing that those circumventing it were the ones dragging the country backward. (NAN)
