MEET FRANK OSHANUGOR
By Frank Oshanugor
As Nigeria’s political space is gradually warming up preparatory to the 2023 national elections, a formidable socio-political organisation, ANIOMA YOUTHS, has called one of their own, Prince Ned Nwoko, to run for the Delta North Senatorial Seat at the National Assembly.
AtlanticNewsonline gathered that the call stemmed from the Youths utmost conviction that it was hightime the former vibrant House of Representatives Member, unleashed his known potentials, to give Anioma Nation, quality cum practical representation at the hallowed Red Chamber.
In a statement made available to AtlanticNewsonline on Sunday, the Youths expressed the belief that Hon. Nwoko was capable of bringing healthy 21st century development to bear on the entire nooks and cranny of the Senatorial District.
The group regretted what they painfully termed “empty representation by the incumbent Senator, which has left Anioma stagnated, developmentally void and visibly deprived of tangible benefits to the Youths, which the likes of Ned Nwoko would have long championed, had he the opportunity to represent Anioma at the Senatorial level.”
Consequent upon such belief and to ensure that Anioma Youths do not fall victim to poor representation at the Senatorial level come 2023, they have resolved to mobilise massively to strongly support Hon. Ned Nwoko, whom they confidently believe has the political wherewithal to liberate them from protracted neglect.
Recall that Hon. Ned Nwoko, a former Federal Legislator, represented Aniocha/Oshimili Federal Constituency, where he excelled in actively articulating the voice of his people at the lower Chamber of the National Assembly, with a lot of dividends of democracy to his federal constituency.
However, since then, all his attempts to replicate his vibrant representation at the Upper Chamber of the Assembly, in favour of his Senatorial District, have failed, due largely to conflicting political interests and its concomitant schemings and manoeuvring.
But, with popular support as being canvassed in his favour by the Anioma Youths, it is certain that Hon. Ned Nwoko would be a force to beat in Delta North Senatorial Election, should he answer the sincere call of the well organised and well coordinated Anioma Youths.
The statement further stated that “all will be eagerly awaiting his acceptance of this clarion call, and the rest will be taken from there. However, this is a solemn resolve, as all and sundry of the Anioma extraction, are tired of make belief leadership. And there is no other at this time, capable of advancing the yearnings and aspirations of Anioma people, than Hon. Prince Ned Nwoko.”
