Owerri , Imo State
Barley two months after the composition of the leadership of the 9th Imo State House of Assembly . The Speaker of the House , Rt. Hon. Collins Chiji , while presiding over Tuesday’s plenary constituted the various House committees’ leadership with clearly assigned portfolios for their oversight functions .
In the Nigerian political milieu and social context , no doubt , the kind of committee assigned to a state or federal lawmaker is largely measured in the court of public opinion by his relevance , social contacts and political affiliation . It is common belief here , that , those who are given ‘ juicy committees ‘ are usually in the good books of either the state governor or respected political leaders ; and not necessarily by merits , or their areas of specialization .
Little wonder , the cyberspace and a number of community based social media platforms were trending with goodwill messages , best wishes and prayers when Hon. Sir. Amara Chyna Iwuanyanwu ; representing Nwangele Constituency , was announced the Chairman of the House Committee on Housing and Urban Development which houses two state government agencies ; Environmental Transformation Commission (ENTRANCO) and Owerri Capital Development Authority (OCDA) .
But contrary to the doubts of the pundits and onlookers about his capacity deliverable in handling this ‘ Grade- A House Committee ‘ , many respected and well informed lmolites who know the Iwuanyanwus in Dim Na Nume Isu , Nwangele LGA , have rather tipped his emergence as the Committee chairman on Housing and Urban Development as putting a round peg in a square hole given his rich resume and wealth of experience as a critical stakeholder in the Nigerian contemporary Real Estate Industry .
Yes . As a successful Estate Developer and Valuer before his injection into partisan politics , Amara Chyna Iwuanyanwu had carved his own niche in this aspect of business management . Even with a number of awards won by Sungold Estate , Sir Amara Iwuanyanwu has remained humbly grateful to God for the entrepreneurial skill acquired early in life through the business mentorship of his late father , Chief . Sir. Chyna Iwuanyanwu .
The dynamic and proactive Honourable member , Sir Amara Iwuanyanwu , while speaking with Njoku Macdonald Obinna, Publisher of 4thestatereporters.com , on a telephone interview promised to use his wealth of experience to reposition his committee while taking legislative measures to turn around the sector through people -oriented based bills and motions in line with the Imo Rebuild Agenda of His Excellency , Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha CON, KSC.
