…commissions school blocks he constructed across Ehime-mbano, Ihitte Uboma and Obowo LGAs
Today marks precisely, two years that Deacon Chike Okafor was inaugurated with his colleagues in the 8th National Assembly where he set forth at dawn to become a leading voice in the Green Chambers having on the first day and first sitting, seconded the motion that led to the emergence of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara.
As a Lawmaker, he has since gone ahead to sponsor over 10 vital bills which are currently at various stages of legislation along side other co-sponsored bills and 14 motions.
In spite of all these, he recognizes that while the bills he has sponsored will affect the country, there is therefore the yearning to impact directly and “selfishly” on the very people that defied all odds and gave him an enviable mandate to represent them, even as a greenhorn politician back then. This propelled him to initiate a seemingly interminable chain of life changing programmes and projects aimed at making his people the envy of other constituents who continue to wish they could have him represent them even for one day.
Hon. Deacon Chike John Okafor has organized series of empowerment programmes for women and youths in the tripod Local Government Areas on which Okigwe South Federal constituency stands. And this empowerment included but not limited to building houses for indigent women and widows as well as giving them seed money to float a viable business.
He has donated over 200 vehicles to youths in the Federal constituency to help them eke out a living on wheels.
He donated a transformer to almost all communities in the Federal constituency and gave them money to energize it. This is apart from communities that hitherto had no light that benefitted from his rural electrification programme.
From 2016, he ran between October and April 2017, one of the greatest free medical outreach in this country which saw so many surgeries and child birth take place all at no cost. He even extended the free medical care to inmates in Owerri prisons and made health care services permanently free for pregnant women in Obowo. The free medical outreach was flagged off by the wife of the Governor, Nneoma Nkechi Rochas Okorocha, Ph.D.
He has consistently paid the enrollment fees for WAEC and NECO for students in the Federal constituency till date, even as he has built and donated several classroom blocks to schools in the Federal constituency.
He built from scratch, the Comprehensive Secondary school, Ikenanzizi, Obowo, donated 13 classroom blocks to the secondary school in Amainyi-nta, Ihitte Uboma among others.
Today, the Administrative block reconstructed by Hon. Deacon Chike Okafor in Okenanlogho Secondary Technical School, Obowo was commissioned by the Executive Secretary of Secondary Education Management Board (SEMB), Sir Cyprian Emeka Chukwuemeka, and was witnessed by a teaming and appreciative crowd of people including Rev.

Deacon Chike Okafor who was unavoidably absent due to the special session of the House of Representatives which marked their second anniversary, was ably represented by none other than his lovely wife, Deaconess Akudo Okafor through whom he made it known that work is at advance stage at the other school blocks he is constructing in Umuopara Nsu Secondary school, Nsu, Ehime-mbano, Community School Umuogele, umuariam, Obowo and community primary school, Uzinumi, Uboma, Ihitte Uboma.
