A prominent Anioma chief and a high profilist member of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Fred Ajudua, the Onwa of Ibusa, and also, the Dike of Anioma, on Sunday, 27 November, warmly received Prince Ned Nwoko, the Delta North PDP senatorial candidate, and his famous celebrity wife, Mrs Regina Daniels Nwoko, in his palatial home in Ibusa, Oshimili North area of Delta state, and pledged full support for the senatorial candidate.
Chief Ajudua, who ironically, is from the same community as Peter Nwaoboshi, the Delta North All Progressives Congress (APC) senatorial candidate, Nwoko’s political rival, who is currently missing in action due to some criminal charges, pointed out why Ned Nwoko is the best candidate to represent Delta North senatorial district.
The double chief maintained that Ned Nwoko is a selfless man who is very passionate about the people of Anioma. He noted that, unlike his rivals, Ned Nwoko is not greedy, but rather, derives pleasure in giving back to the society.
In chief Ajudua’s words, “This power rotation that the people are enjoying now, Ned Nwoko was among the people that fought for it. It was very brutal then. I was even framed and arrested, Ned drove to the Police headquarters, in his convoy, and ordered my release.
“Most of the people who are now the beneficiaries of this power rotation in the state, were the major people who stood against Ned Nwoko when he was fighting for the power rotation.
“Ned is a very selfless man, a confirmed attorney who has made his money from the system. He is not greedy, always giving back to the society. Ned has empowered a lot of people.
“On the contrary, the people opposing him are very greedy. The more they accumulate wealth, the greedier they get. The difference between Ned and his opponents is very wide and incomparable. His opponents should take tutorials from him.”
Chief Ajudua thanked Ned Nwoko for is services and reminded him that he does not need to campaign in Ibusa community, stating that victory is sure for the senatorial candidate.
“Thank you very much for your services. You don’t need to campaign in Ibusa. PDP will win here seamlessly, because we are here”, the double chief added.
Ned Nwoko expressed gratitude and promised not to bring shame to Anioma people. He, however, wished that his opponent, who is from that community is physically present for the election, to avoid the opposition camp saying that he won the election by default.
“This is not a politics of personal interest. I love my Anioma people and I have always carried them along. I promise not to bring shame to them. I will do what the people would be proud of. I, however, would have liked for my opponent to be out, then, let Aniomas decide who will go for them. Because, I don’t want to win and his camp will turn around and say that I won by default,” Ned Nwoko said.
Chief Ajudua and his family, together with Omu Ibusa, Omu Josephine Nwannabuogwu, who was also present in Onwa’s palace, jointly gave Ned Nwoko’s wife, Regina, an undisclosed gift.
“I have seen you on my screen for years, its a great pleasure to finally meet you in person. Welcome to the family,” Omu Josephine said as she hands over the gift to Regina.
Another surprise awaited Ned Nwoko, as the youths who heard of his visit, immediately crowded Onwa’s compound, and patiently waited for him to come out. On sighting Ned Nwoko, the excited youths started singing his praises and assured him their full support.
