AWKA — NATIONAL Chairman of All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Chief Victor Umeh, has said the Igbo nation needed quality representation at all level to be able to achieve the people’s objectives.

Speaking after receiving another chieftaincy title of Enyimba (the people’s Elephant) conferred on him by the traditional ruler of Ozubulu in Ekwusigo Local Govern-ment Area of Anambra State, Umeh said without adequate representation, the people would continue to lose out in the scheme of things.

He said: “I want Igbo to be reckoned with in Nigeria and the only way this can be achieved is through adequate and quality representation at any forum.

“As an integral part of Nigeria, it is important that the Igbo nation always presents her best whenever the need arises because that is best way to get their rights among the tribes that make up the country.”

Umeh expressed his preparedness to continue to work for the Igbo race, adding that he would always serve in any capacity the people found him worthy.

According to him, the numerous titles bestowed on him by many traditional rulers were sources of encouragement for him to work harder for the people.

He said: “When these titles come, one is encouraged and challenged to work harder. It means that our people appreciate our contributions.

“This season alone, I have four more titles coming from many traditional rulers, which are indications that they like the things we do.”
