In the last couple of months there has been deluge of commissioning of completed projects while many others are still ongoing, these harvests of infrastructural deliverables are visible across the 6 local government Areas of Abia Central senatorial district courtesy of Senator T.A. Orji.

Coming from the opposition, though a second term senator, Ochendo, must have weighed in his political capacity, experience and sagacity effectively to be able to attract such generous number of democratic deliverables, he has also proved that he is a senator who understands his environment and passionate about his constituency, he also understands how to maximize the legislative business to create developmental impact in every part of his senatorial district.

These harvest of constituency projects by Senator Orji has also further amplified his performance rating in the senate that placed his current report card as the most productive senator (June 2019 – May 2020), this may be heart breaking to his detractors but those who knows and follows the senator's activities, are aware, he is very active and hardworking and deserves greater recognition.

Senator Theodore Ahamefule Orji, has within his period in the green chambers recorded Seven (7) Bills to his Standing in the Bills Chart of the 9th Senate with one of his bills on the establishment Of the “Nigerian Centre For Disease Control And Prevention (NCDC) And For Matters Connected Therewith” passed into law.

This bill was widely hailed as not only foresighted but timeous given the outbreak of Covid-19 and other infectious diseases.

He has also attracted the construction of twelve Classroom Blocks at Okwuta Community, Umuahia North Local Government Area, with conveniences and Headmaster’s Office. Twelve Classroom Block at Ikem Nvosi, Isiala Ngwa South Local Government Area, with conveniences and Headmaster’s Office, Ongoing Road Construction Project at Nbawsi, Isiala Ngwa North Local Government Area, construction and equipping of Umuariaga Health center in Ikwuano Local Government Area, Umuetegha primary health center, Isialangwa North, Primary Health Center at Ukome Umuahia North LGA.

Senator T.A Orji had also undertaken rural electrification projects and had delivered transformers to so many communities in Osisioma, Isiala Ngwa North/South, Umuahia North/South and Ikwuano Local Government Areas.

The annual Ochendo scholarship scheme which had empowered over 1000 students in tertiary institutions across Abia central, this year had over 100 students benefitting to the tune of 100.000 naira each.

Other sustainable empowerment programs attracted by Ochendo include Agricultural Empowerment Training Programme at the National Agricultural Mechanization, lllorin, Kwara State, Empowerment Training Programme for Widows at the National Directorate of Employment (NDE), Umuahia, Abia State, A Five Day Training of Youths on SNAILERY with Start Up Kits at Michael Okpara University of Agriculture Umudike, Abia State, Annual Scholarship Program for over One Hundred Students drawn from the six local government Areas of Abia Central Senatorial District etc.

Senator Orji’s records in the red chambers has remained tops in the list of all those who had represented the senatorial district till date and it is therefore debatable if any of his predecessors has rivalled his achievements given the volume of democratic deliverables attracted by him within his period in the red chambers.

Ochendo, having severally repeated his intention to retire from active politics in 2023, has assigned a lead to whoever will take over his seat at the red chambers but before you bow out, I must state that you have done well but like Oliver Twist “Abia Central Needs More”
