WACHUKWU, Hon. Herbert. M. J.

was born into the family of Mr. Herbert Wachukwu and Madam Ekenma Wachukwu on the 25th October, 1925. His parents hail from Umukalu and they have eight children. Political scientists and sociologists all agree that one of the primarily active agents of socialization is the family. It is in line with this trend that Mr. Wachukwu's parents played an active role in shaping his entire life espcially in the direction of education as a child. At an early age, his parents emphasised to him the impor tance of education. This encouragement led to his entering Government School, Aba in 1937 where he completed his elementary education in 1947. The same year, Mr. Wachukwu was admitted into New Bethel College, Onitsha. He suc cessfully obtained the Cambridge School Cer tificate at the end of his course in 1953. A christian of protestant denomination, Mr. Wachukwu began his career as a clerk with the Nigerian Railways. Having left the Raiways, he worked and served in various capacities. For a brief period, he worked with J. Allen and Co. (Nigeria) Limited. Later, he joined the SCOA Motors Nigeria Limited. In this organisation, Mr. Wachukwu actually proved his mettle, a quality which enabled him to rise through the rank and file to the post of Sales Manager in 1976. He served his company with devotion and dedication to duty until he resigned to begin a new career in politics. His inborn interest in politics culminated in his chairmanship of the Ukwa Local Govern ment Council of Imo State, a post he devotedly held until 1979 when he resigned for active politics. Hon. Wachukwu has Ukwa Constituency as his political base and was successfully elected in to the House of Representatives on the ticket of the Nigerian Peoples Party Married to Ekenma, with eight children, Mr. Wachukwu has travelled to other parts of the world especially the U.S.A. Hon. H. M. J. Wachukwu enjoys playing Billiard and table tennis for the recreation of body and soul.
