ABIA STATE HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY SPEAKER EMERGES 2021 MAN OF THE YEAR …as Abia Online Media holds 2021 AGM/Bloggers Week Nov. 16th to 19th
The Abia Online Media Publishers, the umbrella body for all Online Media Practitioners in Abia State has named the Speaker of Abia State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Engr. CHINEDUM ORJI as the 2021 Man of the Year.
The group said the honour is in recognition of the role the Speaker has been playing in “stabilizing the political climate of the state.”
In a statement made available to Brave Views, the group noted that: “The Speaker has become different things to different people, his fame never wanes, he has continued to wade through different political bends unruffled.
“He has become a role model to many young people in the state, either by supporting their dreams or inspiring them through his words and actions.
“Above all, his ability to relate with leaders in Abia, past and present irrespective of party leaning, is a virtue that has become so scarce in the polity today”.
The Abia Online Media Publishers disclosed that the Award would be presented to the Speaker alongside other Awardees yet to be unveiled at the Michael Okpara Auditorium on the 19th of November 2021, as part of the activities marking the groups 4-Day Annual General Meeting/Bloggers Week.
