With his background, exposure and experience both Nigeria and the Diaspora.Dr. Arinze Madueke’s decision to venture into partisan politics is worth welcoming with both hands and an open mind. His decision to contest for House of Representative seat come 2019 is certainly good for Nigerian politics. Here is a Nigerian youth, who is not just a young Nigeria but also has what it takes to deliver modern governance to his constituents. He is a card- carrying member of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) and come 2019, he is determined to deliver quality representation to the people of Nnewi North, Nnewi South and Ekwusigo Federal Constituency, when he emerges winner of that contest on his APGA party platform.

Having spent time within the Federal Constituency, Dr. Madueke expressed clear understanding of the problem in the area which included; lack of opportunities, poor knowledge of how the system works, poor education, lack of infrastructure, slow development of road network, among many others. Expressing confidence in the leadership of His Excellency Chief Willie Obiano, Dr. Arinze remarked that young visionary people from Anambra state has to come on board to assist the Governor in the good works he is doing for the sake of continuity and sustainability.
