Uche Annie Okonwo, House of Representatives candidate for Idemili North and South on the platform of Social Democratic Party (SDP) and son of Senator Annie Okonkwo, has said that until a leader is accessible he would not be able to deliver on campaign promises to the people.
The House of Representatives hopeful who made the remark in a chat with newsmen, noted many representatives were not known in their constituencies.
He said that as soon as they win elections, they disconnect from the people who gave them mandate.
The politician maintained that he came into politics because he discovered that his constituency was lacking so much in terms of evidence of democracy.
He said that if the representatives do not meet with the people it would be pretty difficult for them to know their needs.
He said that he was very hopeful that he would get the mandate of his people during the general elections because he had been close enough to them to know their desires, even as he promised to be honest to them.
