Joy Emodi Turns 65 Today

Joy Emodi (born 23 May 1955) was elected Senator for the Anambra North constituency of Anambra State, Nigeria, taking office on 20 February 2005 after the election of Emmanuel Anosike was annulled. She was re-elected in 2007, but her second election was appealed by Alphonsus Obi Igbeke, the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP) candidate. After protracted hearings, Igbeke was declared the winner on 25 March, 2010.

Birth and education

Emodi was born on 23 May 1955 in Onitsha, Anambra State and is of Igbo extraction. She attended the Queen of the Rosary College, Onitsha and went on to the University of Nigeria, Nsukka where she earned a B.Sc. in Geography Education (1979), and then an LLB. Law (1985). After further legal training at the Nigeria Law School, Lagos she became a professional lawyer in 1987.

Senate career

Emodi won the People's Democratic Party (PDP) primaries for the 12 April 2003 election for the Anambra North Senatorial zone, and was declared the winner on 16 April 2003. A few days later, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) reversed this decision, and declared Emmanuel Anosike as the winner. INEC had earlier returned Anosike as the winner of Anambra East/West Federal Constituency of the House of Representatives. After appeals, on 21 January 2004, the Election Petition Tribunal declared that Emodi had been duly elected, and after further appeals she took her seat in the Senate in February 2005. She was appointed Chairman of the Senate Committee on Education, and a member of committees on Senate Services, Communications, Federal Capital Territory, Housing, Privatization, Sports and Women Affairs & Youth Development.

After re-election in April 2007, Emodi was re-appointed the Chairman of Senate Committee on Education, and was appointed a member of the Committees on Solid Minerals, Establishment and Public Service, and Petroleum Resources (Down Stream Sector). In a mid-term evaluation of Senators in May 2009, This Day Newspapers noted that she had sponsored the National Ethics Curriculum Administration (NIEPA), and sponsored and co-sponsored thirteen motions. She was chair of the Education committee. Her second election was annulled and Igbeke declared the winner on 25 March 2010. The Senate delayed, but was ordered to swear in Igbeke in May 2010.

Emodi ran for election in the April 2011 elections on the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) platform, winning 54,060 votes. She was defeated by John Okechukwu Emeka of the PDP, who won 60,788 votes.

hmm!

A celebration isn’t complete without some reflection and introspection. Take the time to look behind you; the clues to your future are in there.

Birthdays mean a fresh start; a time for looking back with gratitude at the blessings of another year. It is also a time to look forward with renewed hope for more significant benefits. May you find true bliss as you face your next milestones.

Wishing you Happy Birthday.

Read her profile. The woman is really powerful and influential as a senator. Anambra women can be very daring and useful anywhere they see themselves. I fear the way they compete with men in politics. Anambra has produced so many influential women more than any other stat in Nigeria; with the likes of Senator Ngozi Ekwuniife, Dora Akunyiri, Oby Ezekwesili, Stella Odua, and the list goes on. E be like say I go find one bright Anambra lady to marry

If not for the death of Abacha, this woman would have been the first female governor of Anambra. All the badass male politicians did their best to undo the move but failed!

HBD Mama!

Live longer!
