The people of Udu local government area of Delta state have appealed to Governor Ifeanyi Okowa to appoint an indigene as commissioner in the board of Delta State Oil Producing Area Development Commission, DESOPADEC.
They said the appointment was very important to enable them have a new leader in the present administration of Okowa.
The leaders spoke through a youth group, Udu Youths for Change Initiative (UYCI), in a statement signed by Mr. Josiah Akpovwedae and Miss Precious Ekwetafia, President and Secretary respectively.
They also warned that old breed politicians who had failed Udu people over the years in all elections should not be considered for any appointment.
“It has become pertinent that Governor Okowa give Udu people new leadership because the current selfish politicians masquerading as political leaders have failed to deliver the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP), since 1999 thereby relegating Udu to the lowest background in terms of infrastructural development compared to other local government areas in the state.
“These crop of selfish politicians always go to Asaba to claim that they are the ‘all in all’ of Udu PDP; little did the then governor know that these persons’ stock in trade is to blackmail others in government to gain undue favour, whereas they could not even deliver their units over the years and we are convinced that they cannot deliver PDP in future elections.
” Those who styled themselves as PDP leaders in Udu have failed PDP continually but funny enough; the state government has continued patronizing these persons during elections by distributing election funds into their hands and in turn they share for themselves and go to sleep on election day,” Tthe statement noted.
