Looking at Honourable Luke Ukara Onyeani, the member representing Arochukwu State constituency, in the Abia State House of Assembly, his gentle mien and peaceful disposition will make any one think that he will find it difficult making his voice heard in a charged legislative environment such as the Abia house of assembly, but the past two years had seen this amiable and easy going politician stand out as a standard voice of opposition in the legislative chambers.

Honourable Luke Ukara Onyeani has not failed to eulogise his party the APGA and the standard Flagbearer of the party in the last election Dr. Alex Chioma Otti, even under a tensed atmosphere of strict opposition in a PDP dominated environment where most people are afraid of expressing their allegiance and loyalty to any other political party outside of the PDP.

Lukman as he is fondly called by friends and colleagues is a man who has utilized the opportunity given to him to represent the good people of Arochukwu by his party the APGA effectively in the areas of social and infrastructural development and in his primary assignment of lawmaking.

Hon. Onyeani’s midterm score card in the 6th legislative house, of the Abia house of assembly, will be described as one full of hunger for service and struggle for excellent representation.

In the words of Hon. Luke Onyeani, the fire for development burning in his heart cannot be controlled until he sees every unit of his constituency fully developed, though he is finding it difficult to maximise the developmental potentials embedded in his spirit because of the opposition environment and harsh economic times he finds himself which had restricted him from most of his developmental projections within the last two years of his representation, but he is encouraging his constituents to be hopeful and patient as he will make sure that the remaining two years will be full of smiles, he advised them to go get their voters card ready as the much desired change they voted for will soon be realised.

While he appreciated his lovely wife and children for their moral and spiritual support . Thank his constituents for voting massively for Apga  asure them that they will reap the fruit of their labour.
