Former Chief Whip of Warri South Council Legislative Arm and contender for Warri South constituency 1 seat in Delta State House of Assembly, Hon. Austin Oritsebemigho Tete, says since the creation of Warri South Constituency 1, nobody from the rural area has been given opportunity to represent the constituency, hence the need to correct the perceived wrong.
Hon. Tete, who made the statement at his community, Egbokodo in Ubeji/Obodo ward, while declaring his intention to vie for the Warri South Constituency 1 seat, asserted that it was time to change the narrative.
While assuring that he will make his constituents and youths in general proud if given the mandate, the former chairman, House Committee on Health and Environment in Warri South legislative arm, canvassed for the support of party leaders and delegates ahead of the forthcoming Peoples Democratic Party, PDP primaries.
Immediate past Secretary of Local Education Authority and chieftain of PDP, Hon. Griftson Omatsuli assured Hon. Tete of his support and members of the heavily populated Ubeji/Obodo ward.
Hon. Omatsuli opined: “It will be wizardry if I support other persons outside my ward”, adding that it is time for people of the rural area of Warri South to produce the next Warri South Constituency 1 legislator.
While the chairman of Ubeji/Obodo ward, Mr. Peter Ighomuenor, assured the House of Assembly hopeful of their support, our correspondent learnt that the director-general of Hon. Austin Tete campaign organization, Mr. Roland Yomere, opined that it was time for the younger generation to take-over representation of Warri South.
One of the leaders of the ward, Mr. John Gbegi prayed for the electoral success of Hon. Tete.
