A medical doctor, Arinze Madueke, has said that politics should be about rendering service to the people and not for personal accumulation of wealth. In a statement issued by him, the medical practitioner said he is making a foray into politics to render service to the downtrodden by giving them quality education that will develop their capacity to think for themselves and draw from the unlimited well of greatness within.
Madueke, who is an entrepreneur and a philanthropist, said he is a Nigerian youth, who is not just a young Nigeria but also has what it takes to deliver modern governance to his constituents.
The trained medical doctor who hails from Ukpor, in Nnewi South Local Government Area of Anambra State, said he clearly stands out in the congregation of indigenes of Anambra State, who have distinguished themselves in different spheres of life.
Speaking about his aspiration, Madueke underscored that his decision to veer into the murky water of Nigerian politics is to deliver unmatched representation to his constituents, correct governmental/ official impunity, develop a responsive system of representation, speak the mind of his people, and use other legislative instruments to profitable advantage, in a bid to directly and indirectly impact the lives of the people of his constituency and the nation by extension.
H a v i n g spent time within his Federal Constituency, which comprised three local government areas, 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 Anambra State governor, Chief Willie Obiano, Dr. Madueke remarked that young visionary people from Anambra State have to come on board to assist the governor in the good works he is doing for the sake of continuity and sustainability.
Known as ‘Okaka’, Madueke is the Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of Zidora Group, a multi-million, multiple brand business he founded a few years ago. The statement reads: “At 33, Madueke is no doubt one of Nigeria’s most successful entrepreneurs. He is a man of many parts; one who does not waste time in extending assistance to the needy, irrespective of religion or ethnicity. His philanthropic gestures are loud and speak volumes about his commitment to quality education and his stance as an apostle of pragmatic leadership.
“Dr. Madueke is a moral instructor and believes in living a good legacy for the younger generation to emulate. His passion has driven him at an early age, to several community project and social responsibility.
In turn, he has been recognised severally by different establishments for his selfless services.
He has also received so many awards from various parastals, corporate organisations and government institutions like the Nigeria Police Force, schools, among others for his service to mankind. “He is a source of motivation and inspiration to many; an innovative entrepreneur. As someone who is constantly looking for new ways to solve old problems, there is surely many things one, especially young people, can learn from him.”
The statement noted further that, “He is one man you must meet to understand the true meaning of humanity. He is an outstanding philanthropist of his generation who started giving even when he had little. Much of his philanthropic activities are carried out through a non-governmental, nonprofit, charity organisation he founded; Zidora Aid Foundation (ZAF).
The foundation has put a lot of smiles on the faces of the disabled, the less privileged and I n t e r n a l ly Displaced Persons, IDPs. “With his background, exposure and experience both internationally and locally, Dr. 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 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.”
While commending Governor Obiano for transforming Anambra State and making it a reference point for other states, Madueke also commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for conducting a credible governorship election in Anambra State and for the measures being put in place to ensure credible elections in 2019.
