UGHELLI—A member of Delta State House of Assembly, Mr. Edoja Akpodiete, has described the large turnout of party faithful to the just concluded Delta Central PDP sensitisation rally as a message that the party was prepared to win in the forthcoming local government and general elections.
Speaking with newsmen in Ughelli during the rally, Akpodiete said: “The Urhobo people are progressives. Today speaks about what we have benefited as a people from the PDP-led government in Nigeria and Delta State. Remember we just had the nomination of our leader, Dr. Steve Oru, as a minister designate. It is a thank you rally, a peace and unity rally.”
The lawmaker, who represents Ughelli North constituency on his aspiration for 2015, said: “It is not an ambition, I am continuing with the job. It is a re-election bid. The people have asked me to continue, who am I to say no?”
