Elders, leaders and stakeholders of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Onicha Ukwuani ward 5, in Ndokwa West local government area of the state, have adopted the pioneer Majority Leader of the Delta State House of Assembly, Hon. Aneke Ifemeni, as the political  leader of ward. 

The adoption was affirmed on Sunday at an enlarged meeting of the ward at Onicha Ukwuani, which was attended by over 70 PDP faithful and stakeholders.

The motion to this effect was moved by Chief Solomon Oyemike and seconded by Mr Rufus Enebeli. 

Moving the motion, Chief Oyemike extolled the leadership qualities of Hon Ifemeni, describing him as a political juganaut and grassroots mobilizer, whose antecedents and pedigree had remained an enigma in the political evolution of Delta state. 

He said Hon. Ifemeni was now the highest elected office holder in the ward following the demise of late Senator Patrick Osakwe, having been elected to the first Assembly of the Delta State Legislature, where he was the pioneer Majority Leader during the administration of the first democratically elected Governor of Delta state, Olorogun Felix Ibru. 

While acknowledging the political sagacity and administrative ingenuity of Hon. Ifemeni, Chief Oyemike charged him to bring his wealth of experience to bear in piloting the affairs of PDP ward 5,  Onicha Ukwuani, to greater heights.

In his acceptance speech, Hon. Ifemeni described the decision of the elders and leaders as a great honour and solicited the support and cooperation of members of the party to enable him succeed, promising to be fair, honest and transparent in handling party affairs at all times. 

He said his decision to accept the offer was informed by the demise of Senator Patrick Osakwe, whom he paid tribute to, noting that nature abhorred vacuum. 

The stakeholders meeting was attended by Mrs Theresa Ojinji, Mrs Clementina Oluka, Sir Solomon Oyemike, Mr Gordon Akpe, and Ogbuiji, Chief Ifeanyi Obi, among others.
