A frontline aspirant for the Oshimili South constituency seat in the Delta State House of Assembly, Hon. Taju Isichei, also known as IKUKU, on Monday consulted with the LGA executive of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, over his ambition to represent the constituency come 2023.
Hon Isichei, who was accompanied by members of his campaign team and supporters, stormed the LGA Secretariat of the party in Asaba, fully armed with his manifesto, which he took time to present to the party officials
He told the gathering that he had earlier made a similar declaration in his ward 5, Umuaji, explaining that it was a matter of necessity for him to inform the LGA Exco of his intention to run for the State Assembly election.
Isichei said he and five other aspirants had interacted with the Asaba Development Union (ADU), as part of consultations with critical stakeholders, with a view to ensuring that Oshimili South had the best representative in the State Legislature come 2023.
The aspirant, who enumerated all that he had done in the past to help humanity and the community, maintained that he was ahead of the others in terms of experience, accessibility, humility, boldness, connection, the fear of God and benevolence, urging the delegates to vote for him in the May 7 primary election.
He told the party officials to be wary of those who would be coming to buy them over, only to shut the doors against them after being elected, insisting that such politicians should be rejected at the polls because they did not mean well for the people and the constituency.
Responding, the Chairman of the Oshimili South chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Ogbueshi Dada Okonji, thanked Taju Isichei for making his ambition known to the LGA leadership, saying that was the right thing every serious minded aspirant should do.
Dada Okonji assured Isichei that the party would provide a level playing ground for all the aspirants to ensure that no one was denied the opportunity to test his or her popularity and urged the delegates to be guided by their consciences while voting in the primary election.
