UGHELLI—As the 2015 general election approaches, Nigeria Grass-Root Mobilizers for Jonathan and Sambo, a political pressure group, yesterday, endorsed Mr. Daniel Idonor as its candidate for the Ughelli North/Ughelli South/Udu federal constituency.
Speaking during a courtesy visit to Idonor at his Ughelli residence, President of the group, Mr. Nathaniel Okoroh, said Idonor’s endorsement was necessitated by his commitment to the well being of his people.
Describing Idonor as a man with charisma to represent his people, Okoroh explained that his choice to represent the constituency was because of his pedigree and track record in office when he was chairman of state House Correspondents chapel of the Nigerian Union of Journalists, NUJ, Aso Rock, Abuja.
He said having worked under former President Olusegun Obasanjo, late President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua and the incumbent President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, “Idonor should be trusted with such an elective position to represent us in Abuja and we have explicit confidence in him to attract dividends of democracy to the area if supported.
Ökoroh added,“He has been working within corridor of power and we don’t have any doubt that if he is sent to the House of Representatives to represent Ughelli North/Ughelli South/Udu constituency, he will deliver because of his potentials.”
In his response, Idonor said he was overwhelmed by the visit and thanked them for their support towards the actualisation of his political aspiration in 2015.
