Isoko North Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), candidate in the April, 10, 2021 Delta state house of Assembly by-election, Jude Omena Ogbimi, has assured his constituents of better days even as he promised to carry everyone along in the scheme of things.
Following the demise of former member representing Isoko North constituency and majority leader, Delta state house of Assembly, Tim Owhefere, early this year, the Independent National Electoral Commission, (INEC), fixed April, 10, 2021 for a bye election to replace the late lawmaker.
Speaking with Journalists on Monday at Oyede, Isoko North council area of the state during the party’s ward to ward campaigns across the constituency led by governor Ifeanyi Okowa, the party flag bearer, Ogbimi, noted that as a lawmaker, he would work to better the lives of his people by influencing people-oriented dividends of democracy.
“As an accountant, politician and philanthropist, I promise not to disappoint my people, my party leaders and elders for the trust reposed in me by nominating me to replace our illustrious son and one of the most vibrant lawmakers ever had in Isoko North, Late Barrister Tim Owhefere. I am going to the House as a lawmaker, but the truth is that I will allow my antecedents to speak for me even in my private capacity I am known by people as someone who support the course of the common man.
“In Okowa’s administration, the women and youths are well empowered. What I know is that I will never disappoint my leaders and the people for this rare privilege given me so far. The truth is that, Isoko North is PDP, Delta state is PDP and PDP is Isoko North, PDP is Delta state.
“Let me also use this opportunity to appeal to the people of Isoko North that comes Saturday, April, 10, 2021, translate into votes all the love and massive supports they have shown me and our party so far during our ward-to-ward campaigns and rallies.”
Asked if he would exceed the two years given to him to complete the tenure of the late majority leader, Ogbimi, swiftly said “No I will not exceed the mandate given to me to complete the remaining two years tenure of the late majority leader. Unless the people and the leaders ask me to continue in 2023. Let me use this medium to thank and commend the people of Isoko North, PDP, leaders, elders and governor Ifeanyi Okowa for all the supports and honour done me.”
