Political leaders in Ndokwa nation have been urged to concern themselves with how to better the lots of the people in their present positions rather than fight over where they would want to be in 2023.
Delta Commissioner for Finance, Sir Fidelis Tilije, made the call in Asaba while receiving an award of excellence from Ikolobie Ndokwa for using his position to positively affect the Ndokwa nation and the state.
Tilije noted that some of the leaders were already divided over elective positions in 2023, insisting that their focus now should be on having score cards that would justify the current positions held.
While saying that it was too early to nurse 2023 political ambition, the Finance Commissioner stated that at the appropriate time the necessary alignment and re – alignment would be done, going forward.
He thanked Ikolobie Ndokwa for recognising and appreciating his modest achievements as an ambassador of the Ndokwa nation, promising to continue to hold the position of Finance Commissioner in trust for the people.
Tilije advised Ndokwa youths to remain peaceful and supportive of the Okowa administration, describing them as vibrant, resourceful and focused.
The Commissioner, who hails from Ukwuani Local Governnent Area, challenged the leadership of the Ndokwa Nekwu Union (NNU) to galvanize all people of Ndokwa nation and build bridges of synergy among the leaders in order to create a veritable platform that would launch the ethnic nationality to national and global reckoning.
Earlier, while presenting the ward to Tilije on behalf of Ikolobie Ndokwa, Executive Assistant to the Governor on Youth Development, Honourable Nnamdi Ezechi, said it was in recognition of his excellent performance as Delta State Commissioner for Finance, describing him as a worthy ambassador of the Ndokwa nation.
