The Idumuje-Ugboko country home of the Delta North senatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for the February 2023 general election, Hon Prince Ned Nwoko, on Saturday played host to a mammoth crowd of youths from the nine local government areas of Delta North.

The youths were at the massive and architectural masterpiece Mount Ned Resort for the Delta North Youth Assembly, which the senatorial candidate announced that he would convoke during the PDP ward to ward Campaign to chart a course for youths of Anioma.

Ned said the meeting was not just to promote himself, but to remind the youths of the big opportunity ahead of them with the State Governor, Senator (Dr.) Ifeanyi Okowa, on the verge of making history as the first Anioma son to become the Vice President of Nigeria.

He stated that his quest for the senatorial seat of Delta North could only be beneficial to the people with PDP in the Presidency and in control of Delta state, pointing out that if elected, he would be collaborating with the three House of Representatives members and nine House of Assembly members in Delta North to articulate and address the developmental needs of Anioma people.

Ned, who appealed to the youths to vote for Atiku/Okowa, Sheriff/Onyeme, himself, Ndudi Elumelu, Nwokolo, Nnamdi Ezechi and the nine PDP House of Assembly candidates in Delta North, informed them that he was already working on a proposal for the establishment of a Youth Development Agency in the country.

The senatorial candidate said if given the requisite legislative backing, the proposed Youth Development Agency would have the mandate of floating a youth empowerment scheme from which no fewer than five million youths across the country would benefit in the first four years of the incoming administration.

He explained that the would be beneficiaries, each of whom would receive N50m in three instalments, must be entrepreneurs of not less than two years in business, with registered business names and bank accounts, and advised the youths to be prepared to benefit from the package should PDP emerge victorious in the Presidential and Delta North senatorial elections.

Some of the youths who made remarks on the occasion, thanked Ned for convening the meeting, which they said was indicative of his preparedness to effectively represent the Delta North senatorial district if given the mandate.

They described Prince Nwoko as a man with a large heart and listening ears, easily accessible and a leader of impeccable character, and assured him and other PDP candidates of the votes of Anioma youths in the elections.  

The Youth Assembly was attended by the member representing Aniocha North in the Delta State House of Assembly, Hon (Engr) Emeka Nwaobi; the Director General of Ned Nwoko Campaign Council, Rt. Hon Pascal Adigwe; a former Chairman of Aniocha North Local Government, Hon Chuks Oseme, among other dignitaries, as well several youth support groups from the nine local government areas of Delta North.
