Dear esteem Delta north PDP delegates, go through the above vision of Prince Ned Nwoko again, to appreciate the decision that lay before you on September 18.
It is a crucial decision for the rescue of yourself, your children and Anioma land from socioeconomic impoverishment. Prince Ned Nwoko’s revolutionary plan is to turnaround the fortune of Anioma people for the benefit of all.
Ned have plans for you, your children and our land, he is responsible, you can assess his stewardship and hold him accountable based on the above pledges.
On the other hand, the incumbent senator Peter Nwaoboshi, who rose to the Senate on the wings of Governor Okowa, has no plans for you and Anioma land. He has remained uncommitted to any tangible programme and has said it to your ears, not once but on several occasions, that he has no ideas, plans and programmes for Anioma nation. He is visionless.
As a cunning politician, what he meant by saying that he has no plans for Anioma people, is to say that he promised you nothing, therefore you cannot hold him accountable for anything, neither can you assess his stewardship because, he did not give you the template to assess him.
Nwaoboshi, is crude and cunning.
Please for the sake of your children and our beautiful land, ensure you make the right choice on 18th September 2018.
Vote for a man with plans.
Do not vote for a man without plans, because, he who has no plan, plan to fail.
Vote Ned Nwoko.
