The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) 2017 National Elective Convention, has come and gone but for the people of Delta North Senatorial District, who were there, the memories of three places they visited will continue to remain in their minds years to come.

Hon. Prince Ned Munir Nwoko, NMN’s Villa, Abuja can only be described as the epicentre of the Convention, as it turned into beehives of high political activities for many who care for the soul of Anioma region in the forthcoming 2019 General Elections.
All the who is who in Delta North politics trooped his abode to pledge their full support for his 2019 Senatorial aspiration and courts for the pride of Delta North to pursue his Senatorial aspirations under the PDP.
From Thursday to Sunday, the Prince of Anioma never get tired of hosting arrays of politicians from all part of Delta North region.

Buffet tables were set for everyone to feed to his or her tastes and fill.
In his welcoming speech at one of the many meetings he had with various groups, the legend of Anioma region, Hon. Prince Ned Munir Nwoko, thanked the people for identifying with his 2019 Senatorial project and assured them that he is fully prepared to go to the Red Chamber of the National Assembly to represent the good people of Delta North and pledged to give good accounts of himself and the Anioma people at the Senate, if given the mandate to represent the District.
While giving the audience greenlights on the direction he was thinking towards the actualisation of his Senatorial dreams, Prince Ned Munir Nwoko, NMN said, “I am one of the first persons to take up the fight for power shift to Delta North when I challenged the then incumbent Governor in the 2003 Delta State Governorship elections.’
‘In 2015, when Senator Okowa got the PDP ticket, so many prominent Anioma citizens had suggested that I move to another party to contest the Delta North Senate Seat, but I refused because, I do not want to jeopardised Anioma’s chances of producing a Governor of the State, a course which I have championed.”
Continuing he said, “I have made my intentions to go to the Senate come 2019 known to His Excellency, Governor Okowa, Ofcourse we are in constant interactions, he has assured me that there will be a level playing field for all the aspirants to fight for the seat during the PDP primary and I have no reasons to doubt him.’ ‘So, we are watching and observing the situation and the trend of things, as will go along, if there is any sign that he will not be neutral in the race, I will activate my plan B.”
In his response to the speech, the former Acting Governor of Delta State, His Excellency, Rt Hon. Prince Sam Obi, assured Hon. Prince Ned Nwoko that there will be a level playing field during the PDP Senatorial primary. He said that Governor Okowa and the Delta North people needed a united front in order for the region to complete its 8 year term of Governorship of the State.
Also speaking, Engr Emeka Eboh assured the Prince of Anioma region that the Governor will be neutral during the party’s primary because as he put it, “His Excellency wants the most popular aspirant to emerge during the primary to make it easier for the party to win the Senate seat.”
