Ahead of the 2023 GENERAL election, a member of the IZU-UMUNNE OSHIMILI NORTH TEAM of the All Progressive Congress (APC),Hon.Leo Nkeaka led some chieftains of the party to Ward 7 to consult with critical stakeholders in the Ward.
Among those in the meeting were Oshimili North APC Chairman, Hon. Austine Nnabuife ,APC State Women Leader,Hon. Deaconess Tina Okwudili, former Local Government Chairman, Hon. Louis Ndukwe,APC Asst. Organizing Secretary , Tony Ejiofor, Chief Kizito Ijeh,Hon.Vincent Okowanji, Oshimili North women leader,Ward Chairmen of the party and others.
Hon. Nkeaka said his team was in Ward 7 because Oshimili North has been at the forefront of producing great leaders for Nigeria and has shown commitment to APC as a party over the years.
According to him, the process for the return of the APC to the topmost leadership positions in Delta State has started.
He said the ruling PDP in the state had brought economic downturn, debilitating healthcare system and the “collapse of virtually everything” to Deltans, adding, “therefore, the leadership of the PDP in the state must be challenged in order to make things work right.”
Hon. Leo Nkeaka, said the purpose of their visit was to present DSP Ovie Omo-Agege for Governor ,Most Distinguished Senator Peter Nwaoboshi for Senate and Hon. Louis Ndukwe for House of Assembly come 2023 to the Ward 7 APC rank and file for consultation.
He said that Hon. Ndukwe is Young and energetic then and now, I believe he still has the capacity to do it very well more than us. He is ready. I have no doubt that he will represent us very well if he gets the chance,”Nkeaka said.
Grassroots Publishers online gathered that Ibusa Ward 7 is the second ward the team has visited. Nkeaka said with the plethora of challenges facing Oshimili North, there is need for Oshimili North to project Hon. Louis Ndukwe as its 2023 candidate as it would be easier for APC to win the upcoming House Of Assembly election if Hon. Louis Ndukwe emerge as the Party’s standard bearer.
