“It’s about Time to take the necessary action and correct the mistakes of our fathers. “Enough Is Enough”. I will be running for the Federal House Of Representative Arochukwu/Ohafia Constituency Abia State come 2023.”
“Join me in this struggle for a better representation for my people, Ohafia Kaa ni wo

In a statement released by his management, Orion Music Empire said, the hip-life pioneer said, “the situation in our country has made it increasingly important for everyone with ideas especially those with successful careers and professionals to embrace politics and bring aboard their wealth of experience to help fix our country”.
“I made the decision to run for political office in response to repeated requests from my lovely people of Arochukwu/Ohafia to represent them at the federal level. It would usher in a new era in Nigerian politics, and while only God has the complete solution to humanity’s problems, I pledge a paradigm shift that will result in the supply of basic amenities of life that our people deserve.
“I am not a rooky in politics as many may presume; those who have followed me closely over the years know that I have kept close eyes on my constituency and have been regularly involved in grassroots politics in Abia State.
“Even at a time I was a victim of political thugs who failed several times to eliminate me over my political views which their pay masters consider a stumbling block to their political hustle.
“With a thorough understanding of all developments in my region, I know that what my constituents require is effective representation, which I can provide”, J Martins who hails from Ohafia, Abia State declared.
