ASABA – A group, Izu Anioma Organization (IAO), has vowed that Delta North would reciprocate other ethnic nationalities in future when the need arises.
This may not be unconnected with their massive support for Governor Ifeanyi Okowa shown through the overwhelming votes from all Deltans in the last governorship election.
The national executive committee, elders’ forum and the entire members of IAO gave the assurance in a communiqué issued after an emergency meeting of the body.
The meeting, presided over by the national president, Pastor Kingsley Ojie, and read by its media and publicity chairman, Emma Uche Aboh, in Asaba called for a synergy between all elected Anioma sons with Izu Anioma to avoid disconnect from the aspirations and expectations of the people of the area.
While thanking all Deltans and congratulating Governor Okowa on his reelection, Peter Nwaoboshi, a politician representing Delta North at the senate, the three House of Representatives members, Victor Nwaokolo, Ndudi Elumelu and Ossai Ossai and all Anioma sons elected into the state House of Assembly, said Delta people had evolved a system of understanding that made each senatorial district very relevant in governance of the state.
It added that the choice of Okowa, an Anioma son, a detribalised/new breed politician and an achiever made PDP’s victory a landslide with unprecedented huge vote.
The communiqué also noted that the reelection of Okowa was also attributed to the political equation engineered by the Delta State PDP aimed at having a dependable platform for unity, peace, fairness, and a sense of inclusiveness that guaranteed continuous development in the State.
