A subsidiary of Rotary Club International District 9142 Onitsha, Action Group, Anambra State, has urged members of the State Legislature to be more creative in their primary responsibilities, and fashion out ways to alleviate the plights of the masses, especially at the current economic hardship ravaging Nigeria.

The Group made the call when they paid courtesy visit to the member representing Njikoka Two Constituency, Dr. Jude Akpua.

Addressing their host and other State Lawmaker who joined in receiving them, the leader of the Group, Rotarian Chinedu Ogbuefi, said the visit was necessary due to the importance of the legislature in addressing the needs of the masses they are representing.

He described Rotary Club International as a charitable organization renowned for selflessly improving the wellbeing of humanity irrespective race, religion or tribe.

Responding Dr. Akpua, who is the Deputy Majority Leader of Anambra State House Of Assembly, and other members of the State Legislature commended the efforts of Rotary Club International in uplifting humanity, and promised to partner with them for more people-oriented programmes in the State Assembly.

They noted that having been elected by the people for the people, they would continue to serve their people selflessly and without seeking personal aggrandizement of any sort, which the Lawmakers said is in tandem with the working principle of Rotary Club International.

Dr. Akpua, a Rotarian, enjoined his colleagues at the State Legislature to go beyond partnership and become members of Rotary Club International for more impacts in making the society better.

Highlight of the visit was decoration of members of the Anambra State House of Assembly present.
