In his opening speech, Dr Michael Nwoko said, “our Principal, Hon. Prince Ned Munir Nwoko is overwhelmed with joy over your unflinching supports for his senatorial aspiration and as a caring family man and a man who appreciates people for their labour, he felt it is very important to felicitate with you at this Yuletide season and to thank you for all your labour in projecting his senatorial ambition in your various Local Government Areas.”
Concluding the speech, Dr Michael Nwoko added, “our Principal is a man who is very passionate about the development of Anioma people and he want you to continuously lend your supports to him, to give him a wider space to operate to enable him attract greater development to Delta North.’ ‘He also want to know the challenges you are facing in the field and what you think can be done to help you to carry out your duties effectively and efficiently.”
Dr M. Nwoko ended the speech by declaring the floor open for comments from everyone present.
- In his comments, Hon. Barr. Sunny Nwalokor (Ika South), said, ” “we should all focus our minds on how to reach out to our people, sensitize them and tell them that Ned Nwoko is the man to represent us at the Senate come 2019, because presently, we do not have a senator.”
In similar vein, Hon. Leo Esegbue, (Ukwuani), said, “we must be united with strong determination to have Ned Nwoko as our senator for our best interests, because he has no traits or history of deceit and he is a man that keep his promises.
Continue, he said, ” we should not border about those who are sharing rice or money because they are using Government money, (our money) to do so.”
Hon. Bolum Okwuchi, (Aniocha North), Director Security, SAT 2019, said, “we have not seen any of these overnight-turned father Christmas, done anything before they came to power.”
Mrs Ifeoma Agboma, (Ika NE), Executive 1st Member, Post Primary Education Board, Asaba and the Director Women Mobilisation SAT 2019, began her comments with reference to the Scripture. In her words, “He that put his hands on the plough and look back is not worthy of the task,’ ‘I do not see myself as working for Ned Nwoko, I see myself as working for myself and three principles always guide my actions; Diligent, Faithfulness and Commitment, if we are diligent, we will be faithful to our assignments and if we are faithful to our duties, we will be committed to it.”
She thereafter, advised all to show diligent, faithfulness and commitment to Ned Nwoko’s senatorial project.
Hon. Chief Jaunty Okwudi, (Aniocha North), advised everyone to go back to their various LGAs to establish a superstructure, in his words, “once we have a superstructure in our various LGAs and Wards, the task is done.”
He added, “we learnt that some persons suddenly woke up and began to share N9m to some persons, that N9m does not achieve anything, we the Anioma people have found a man who will represent our best interests at Abuja, because we are tired of people with bags of deceits.”
Hon. Ugo Ijoma, (Ukwuani), stated that the people of Ukwuani Local Government Area have not felt the impact of the current senator.
In his words, as far as Ukwuani Local Government Area is concerned, we do not have a senator because we have not seen his impacts on ground, so we are poised for actions for Ned Nwoko for Senate come 2019.”
Hon. Ben Nwadiashi (Aniocha South), in his comments, said “we should all show serious commitments to this project, we have seen what had happened before but this time around we are not going to allow it to repeat itself.”
Hon. Barr. Sam Chukwuji (Ndokwa East), the Director General SAT 2019, NED NWKO FOR SENATE, said, ” I want to acknowledge the calibre of people in this meeting, I think we are sound and experienced grassroot players in this business.’ ‘Delta North people want a change at the senate seat and we have seen a great Lion to represent us and whose voice will be heard all over the country, we should not be intimidated, if you feel intimidated, you are out.”
Continuing, Hon. Chukwuji said, Ned Nwoko for Senate 2019 is a task that must be done.’ ‘You must believe in yourself that this is what you want to do.’
‘If we believe in our goals, we will achieve it.”
Ned is capable of giving us effective representation at the Senate and we must make him more capable.” He concluded.
Hon. Owete Felix, (Ndokwa West) advised everyone to preach Ned Nwoko for Senate in every place and any forum they are, insisting that having him at the Senate will be one of the best things that will happen to Delta North people in recent times.
Senator Chief Francis Nwajei, Odogwu Ahaba, while humorously describing himself as an old but not a tired politician, pleaded with everyone to show commitments to the project, because, as he put it, “the goal is achievable if we exhibit serious commitment towards the mission, we need to feel the impacts of our Senator and Ned is ready for that assignment.
In his summation of proceedings of the meeting, the former acting Governor of Delta State, H. E. Rt. Hon. Prince Sam Obi (Ika NE), who is also the Chairman of the Advisory Board, SAT 2019, said, “this interaction has opened the windows to enable us to acknowledge the fact that Ned is the most popular aspirant for the Delta North Senate seat, we must not go to sleep, we are not going to sleep until the task is accomplished.’ ‘That is why we are here.”
He further said, ,”Ned is overwhelmed with happiness for the great work you are doing in your various LGAs, we must take drastic decisions to make things work, betrayal cannot foreclose our mission. We must meet people, one on one and together with extra efforts put in, we will get the required result.”
