The Delta North senatorial candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), Mrs. Doris Uboh, is confident she will win the February 16 election, it was learnt.
Her media consultant and director of Republic Multi-Concept Communications, Onyekachukwu Isaalah, in a statement, said the incumbent, Senator Peter Nnwaoboshi, of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), would be defeated.
Isaalah told reporters yesterday in Kwale, Ndokwa West Local Government, that the Anioma people would vote Nnwaoboshi out for his poor representation.
The director recalled that the senator once boasted he was foisted on the people by a former governor,
She said ‘’it means he wasn’t voted for by the people, and that underscores the electoral irrelevance of the Delta northerners to him. For this “insult”, the people will reject him at the poll.’’
Isaalah noted that since APC candidates were running a campaign based on integrity, the people would never back anyone alleged to be corrupt.
The consultant told her audience that Mrs. Uboh would give the people quality representation, change the narrative of the district, and ensure the people were the focal point of her tour of duty in the Senate.
The candidate’s focus, Isaalah said, would be to empower youths and ensure meaningful welfare and care for the elderly.
Mrs Uboh, she added, would attract federal projects to the district, and ensure her constituency efforts were on ground for the people to benefit from.
As a seasoned politician, the consultant said the APC candidate would play the game of “real politik” at the national level, attract the positives of representative governance and ensure the district, being an oil and gas producing area, got the rightful place in the polity.
“With Mrs Uboh, Anioma people are in for a new lease of life. Anioma, being the largest homogeneous entity in the oil-rich state, will attain its pride of place. Uboh would create offices in all nine councils, with at least five representatives as workers to get regular feedback from her constituents as a way of carrying every stakeholder along.”
The director called on the people to shun violence and vile conduct before, during and after the elections.
She solicited support for President Muhammadu Buhari, and other APC candidates in the state.
Isaalah urged party leaders to back their own, noting that the Ika-born politician had no enemy to fight but rather need more friends to “battle the people’s enemies bent on denying the people of Anioma their pride of place”.
She noted that Buhari had been able to whittle down the “insurrections of looters of our national economy and destiny killers”, but needed four more years to consolidate on his achievements, particularly the war against corruption.
