The Prince of Anioma land and senatorial hopeful, Prince Ned Nwoko, has officially consulted the PDP in his local government area of Aniocha North on Wednesday April 4, 2018.
Addressing party executive and members, Ned Nwoko stressed that the time has come when Anioma nation should get it right again in leadership representation at the Senate.
He affirmed that having consulted with his family and political associates; he felt he is the right man now, for the office of the senator representing Delta north senatorial district at the National Assembly in Abuja.
The bold and confident international lawyer, however, promised to restore the Anioma dignity in politics if voted in as a senator in 2019, adding that the caliber and personality of the senator who represents the zone at the senate matters a lot.
Addressing a mammoth crowd of youths outside the secretariat after the consultation, Nwoko advised them to brace up to the task ahead, positing that it is the turn of Aniocha to produce the next senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to represent Delta North Senatorial District.
“The office of the Senator requires a personality who is distinguished and not one that continually brings shame and reproach to a people. We have been seriously shortchanged and we cannot continue to allow it. We need quality representation and because Anioma people are dignified and respected people, we must watch who we send to Abuja to represent us.
“Let me further tell you that as far as this contest is concerned, I have no rival by the grace of God. I know I am eminently qualified and positioned to emerge victorious by your support, endorsement and active role in the process”, Nwoko stressed.
Aniocha North PDP chairman, Prince Victor Egbune, stressed that what Prince Ned Nwoko has come to do was official consultation with the PDP in the local government, where he is a bona-fide and active member; after which he would do an intent declaration later in the year based on INEC timetable.
“But I must emphasize that Ned Nwoko is our son here at the home front. While we will not discriminate, we must ensure that a level playing field is provided for all to advance their political aspirations,” Egbune said.
The PDP secretariat in Issele-Uku was a carnival of sort, as party elders, women and youths trooped out in their number to show solidarity to a man known as the Star Prince of Anioma, Prince Ned Nwoko.
