Orode Meyiwa Uduaghan, daughter of former Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan and Delta State House of Assembly aspirant for Warri North, has reacted to the outcome of the primary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) where she lost to Hon. Alfred Martins.
Martins defeated Orode for the ticket of the PDP for Warri North with 25 votes while former governor’s daughter polled 7 votes.
Orode, while thanking delegates and people of Warri North for supporting his political ambition, congratulated Martins for emerging the candidate of the party for the 2023 general elections.
She said her sojourn into the race was to serve her constituents and the people of Delta State and Nigeria in general.
“I want to thank everyone who has offered support since I declared my intention to represent Warri North constituency at the Delta State House of Assembly under the People’s Democratic Party.
“The journey was not without its challenges, we fought well and hard and your immense support served to strengthen the conviction for what was possible.
“I would also like to congratulate Honorable Alfred Martins on his victory at the PDP primaries. Our conviction is that service is a privilege, and we will hold you to the highest standards of this privilege ceded to you today by the party.
“We entrust to you again the vision for a greater Warri North and beseech you to serve our people dutifully as you vie for your second term.
I thank my incredible campaign team for working tirelessly towards our #greaterwarrinorth agenda. You made history and served notice that systemic predispositions could be shaken in Delta state.
“This is only the beginning”, she posited.
While reaffirming her commitment to serve the people of Warri North in her personal capacity, she urged the people of the area to actively participate in the forthcoming elections in the state.
Orode Uduaghan added, “There is no political title as important as the title of citizen, and our political choices must match our aspirations. I therefore call on all well-meaning Nigerians to participate actively in the electoral process come 2023.
“I remain committed to serving the people of Warri North, Delta state and Nigeria in my own capacity.
“God bless Nigeria, God bless Delta state, and God bless the great people of Warri North.
“A Greater Warri North begins now. We have only just begun.”
