“Anambra Central, Anambra State and the South East are proud of their illustrous son, Senator Victor Umeh, who within one year as a Senator of the Federal Republic has changed the narrative and conduct of legislative duties in the Senate.

“APGA Women lauded Senator Victor Umeh for his various legislative interventions that have given hope to the people of Anambra Central Senatorial Zone and Nigerians of a better prosperous democratic society.
“It is heartwarming that we now have compassionate senators like Chief Victor Umeh who feels the pains of the masses and sponsor motions and bills to address them.
“His award-winning motion on the “Illegal Confinement of Underage Offenders and Infants in the same Prison with Adult Prisoners”, is an eloquent testimony of his political sagacity and legislative acumen Nigerians of all political persuasions are proud of.
“This is democracy at its finest which has earned him several awards recently.
