The third term political bid of Stella Adaeze Oduah, the candidate representing Anambra North district under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the Senate has suffered a setback.
The former Aviation Minister started her political journey in the senate in 2015. She was elected to the Nigerian senate to represent Anambra North Senatorial District under the platform of the All Progressive Congress, APC.
She was re-elected in 2019 for a second term. In order to secure a third term ticket, she decamped to the PDP and signified her interest to be elected for the third time to represent Anambra North senatorial district.
However, the Anambra North Elders Forum, ANEF, rejected her third term political ambition, labeling her eight years tenure in the 9th senate a failure.
She was accused of constantly fighting corruption cases and not having time to sit in the hallowed chambers to sponsor any bill or motions that would positively impact the people of her constituency.
The Adaeze Chukwu of Ogbaro land was also said to have failed woefully in empowering people despite the huge money that accrued to her office.
Having enjoyed a fair share of representation, she was advised to take a bow and allow another person take over.
This is not the first time that the senator would face opposition because of her political ambition. She was dragged to court by one John Emeka who accused her of lying under oath in her nomination forms.
Her participation in the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC was questioned and he asked the court to disqualify her from seeking an elective post in 2023, however, the case was later dismissed.
