Not on sentiment, he is very credible. I want to inform you about something I have said before that Chinda is one of the very few persons I am proud to be associated with in the current leaderahip of the tenth House of representatives. 

He has done well to stabilise the house, he has done well to stabilise the minority parties. There is nothing I can say to qualify my gratitude to this gentleman “.

The celebrant who was also invested as  grand patron of boys’ brigade Nigeria, Obio/ Akpor Battelion council, Rivers state thanked God for his mercies, electoral victory at the legislative houses elections and subsequent emergence as Leader of the House Minority of the tenth House of representatives.

While marking his birthday at the same occasion, Rep. Chinda expressed unqualified gratitude to the minister of the federal capital territory, Eze Nyesom Wike whom he said can hardly do wrong so far he(Chinda) is concerned and warned political jobbers from desisting from attempts to recruit him to fight Wike because such attempts will always fail. 

He said, ” I will say again your excellency that I am grateful, myself, my family, Elelenwo community, Obio/Akpor and indeed Rivers State, we are grateful to you. Elelenwo community, I am grateful to you; I don’t believe in re-incarnation but if re-incarnation exists, everyone present here, I will want to come from Elelenwo again”.

Continuing, he said, ” Let me tell you a bit of my interface with the FCT minister started when he was Obio/Akpor local council chairman and in his second term bid, late Ovunda Nsirim of blessed memory asked me to work with him to actualise his second term and thereafter, he was setting up his cabinet and I was not interested in serving in Obio/Akpor then and he said one thing which perhaps today will make you understand why I agreed to work with him.

He told me before Chief Ovunda Nsirim that he wanted to leave a serious minded person behind  in Obio/Akpor during his second term. 

To me therefore he wanted a serious minded person to work with him and when I heard that and he was asking me to work with him, the implication was that he saw me as a serious minded person and because of that, I said I will take up that task and this assignment “. 

The occasion was attended by retinue of legislators state and federal with Royal fathers, community men and women and constituents
