Prince Ned Munir Nwoko, Delta north senatorial aspirant, has listed his achievements to the people of Delta north since he came into the politics of Delta state in 1999.
Nwoko said he has given scholarship awards to brilliant but indigent students of Anioma origin. He said he has also provided roads to improve communication and free movement of goods and services among people of the Anioma extraction.
Nwoko, who was a former member of the House of Representatives, said he had built schools and churches to increase the options for study and worship among the Anioma people of Delta state, noting that the people have remained grateful for these kind gestures.
He spoke when members of Anioma Voice worldwide, led by Akamenke Maniel O’Coney, presented an award to him as the most prestigious Anioma son at Idumuje Ugboko in Aniocha north local government area of Delta state.
Represented by the Iyase of Idumuje Ugboko kingdom, Christopher Ogwu, Nwoko said he has also planted business in the area to assist the unemployed people in the Anioma area of the state, adding that these are among other things he has done since he joined the politics of the state in 1999.
He commended the leadership of Anioma voice for finding him worthy of the award saying: “With your support and wish for the continuation of empirical works like these, that you shall with your votes during the 2019 general elections put us in position to make more of this kind of contributions to the development of Anioma people.”
In his speech, leader of the group, Akamenke, said the award was given to Nwoko for being the winner of an online competition organised by the group where he beat three others in the Anioma area of Delta state.
The facebook competition, Akamenke said, was organised for four great Anioma sons including Prince Ned Nwoko; Godwin Emefiele, governor of the central bank of Nigeria; Ibe Emmanuel Kachikwu, minister of state for petroleum and Chief Sunny Odogwu.
But among all the persons involved, Ned Nwoko emerged on top, hence the need to present the award to him as the most prestigious son of Anioma land.
Akamenke who also said he read an article in the United Kingdom where he observed the role Prince Nwoko played in the refund of the Paris Club money, said his effort in the wake of the Paris club also added to the award as he had fought for the Nigerian government, thereby helping to grow the economy of the nation.
