He went around the council area today December 24, assembled tens of Okada riders at strategic filling stations and gifted them with 3 litters of fuel each.

The jubilant motorcyclists, singing and dancing for the obvious new dawn in Aninri, said Hon. Edeh is the best among equals.

Reacting to the development on behalf of his fellow riders, Mr Anibuishi Kingsley, speaking in local dialect, said Edeh’s timed intervention is a testament that Aninri voters sent a sensitive leader to the State Assembly.

“Aninri has got it right this time. Hon. Magnus Edeh is the man we voted for and he has already started proving himself a competent leader.

“We’re really impressed. Our prayers are with him, his family and with our working Governor Peter Mbah. May the good Lord keep blessing them,” Anibuishi said.

Edeh is the fourth person to serve Aninri in the State Assembly since 1999, coming after Hon. Abel Chukwu who served as former Speaker; Late Hon. Mathias Ekweremadu who served as Commissioner for Transportation; Hon Chinedu Okwu (Otaka).

Swept into power in the tumultuous March 18 election by popular votes, Edeh is clearly different from his predecessors in that his ascension was clearly as a result of people’s mandate, and not the usual “anointing” of godfathers.
