Following the recent disclosure about his discontent, being the only elected senator under the platform of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Delta state, Prince Ned Nwoko, the Delta North senator-elect, has stated that, what Labour Party (LP) and PDP did in the presidential election is unpardonable and shouldn’t be repeated in Delta governorship election.
Nwoko asserted that, the refusal of PDP and Labour Party, whom he rather refers to as ‘Obidients’, to form an alliance, gave a failed government another opportunity to be in power for another four years, with Bola Tinubu possibly becoming the next president.
He made the assertion during a meeting with Delta Community Youths, at Unity Hall, Asaba, on Tuesday, 14 March.
“After experiencing eight years of abysmal government, Labour Party and PDP went ahead to give a failed APC government the opportunity to be in power for another four years because of individual ambitions.” He said.
Acknowledging the commitment and eagerness of the ‘Obidients’, Nwoko called on them to join forces with PDP and ensure that Delta state does not fall under the leadership of All Progressives Congress (APC), and by extension, Tinubu. Pointing out that, a three-horse race in Delta governorship election will favour APC.
Taking a swipe at the insouciant nature of some PDP agents during the presidential election, he said that, most of the party agents were too laidback. He further encouraged that they should be extremely active in the governorship election to avoid any loophole that may land APC a chance.
