An All Progressives Congress, APC, House of Representatives aspirant in Ughelli North/South/Udu constituency of Delta State, Princess Shirley Atiyota Poge Otirikpe, has promised to better the lives of the people of the constituency if she is elected in 2019.
Princess, who made the vow while addressing journalists in Owhase in Udu LGA, Delta State as part of her effort to sensitize the people of her ambition to salvage them from the current socio- economic trauma, lamented that the people of Ughelli North/South/Udu constituency are facing hardship because of the absence of effective representation at the House of Reps to attract dividends of democracy to them.
Princess,a computer engineer, with an international business background, disclosed that if eventually she wins the ticket to the House, she will use her wealth of experience to attract investment from both home and the diaspora to the constituency and through initiation of bills that will attract establishment of industries to the constituency.
She equally promised to use her influence in the House to elevate the educational standard of the people of the constituency by ensuring that a tertiary institution is established in the constituency.
“It could be college of education, polytechnic or a university. Is it not shameful that as old as Ughelli and Udu in Urhobo community, no higher institution is located in the constituency? Beside, elevating the educational standard of the people, Ii will ensure that the bad roads and the health sector are revived,” she promised.”
Princess who vowed to change the poor setting in the constituency said if elected, She would touch various area in the constituency which include education, health, roads, security, creation of employment, payment of salaries as at when due and provision of food among others.
As a child of a politician and one who has worked in the political scene, she has imbibed democratic ideals that culminated in her joining the ruling party, the APC. She is widely travelled and is passionate about community development. She is part of the team at Sadabi Global Concepts working on a concession for the operation of the Naval Air Station at Effurun, Delta State, that will create jobs for the teeming unemployed youths of the community.
