There have been of recent desperate moves particularly through media publications to distract hardworking and vibrant senator representing Delta North. Having gone through some of these publications alleging this or that against Senator Peter Nwaoboshi, my take is that it all remains allegations yet to be proved in any court of law.
Unfortunately some persons or groups, out of their ignorance, rancor or the pull him down syndrome, have already, on their own tried, convicted and sentenced the senator accordingly. But why? In our local parlance,
we say “there is God oooo”. To say the least, the senator has been condemned unheard.
In any case, the reason(s) as far as I can see, is not far-fetched as politics is already in the air, more so when INEC has published the 2019 elections time-table. That is to say the heat is on. Just like students preparing for examinations, it is not bad for politicians to start early preparations but care should be taken to maintain decorum and play by the rules. Thank God for the new Electoral Act that has introduced system.
Another reason that I can deduce for the gratuitous attack on the personality of Nwaoboshi is the undisputed fact that the credentials of this first time senator is rising by the day beyond the imagination of his detractors who are being intimidated by his superlative performance at the hallowed chamber.
My candid advice to our distinguished senator is to use those bricks thrown at him to build super structures for his people. Let him not be discouraged but rather be inspired to serve the people the more.
Further I urge the senator to remain focused and continue to deliver the dividends of democracy to the people of Delta North which he has indeed been doing and still doing through his various empowerment projects and massive infrastructural developments among others. The achievements are there to speak for themselves.
The senator has been matching words with action in line with his electoral promises.
It is worthy of note that Nwaoboshi’s electoral victory was so convincing and unchallenged not even by the political big wigs that ran with him. To me, that was the result of hard work, acceptance by the people and God’s verdict.
The saying, “God’s case no appeal”, apt in this case. Finally, Senator Peter Nwaoboshi is not a saint but certainly not a devil. Assuming without conceding that he is a devil, don’t you think that the devil you know is better than the angels you don’t know.
Finally, let’s give him a chance and rally round him to succeed. It is not a partisan affair. It is Delta North affair.
Oracle, Miracle, carry go!
