Dr Philips Okwuada, an aspirant to the Delta State House of Assembly, has been described as a man concerned about the development of his local government area. This was disclosed by Mr. Frank Onyeator, a politician, in a chat with Anioma Watch.
Mr. Onyeator noted that Dr Okwuada is a well-known man. "He is a grassroots man; he has been tested in various capacities. He is very versatile politically.
Onyeator described Dr Okowada as humble and accommodating, adding that he has a passion and zeal for the development and welfare of his people.
He observed that Dr Okwuada has supported and complemented government efforts and programmes for youth empowerment through his farm projects. "He has helped the people of Ika South to reduce the ugly menace of unemployment by engaging men and women as employee."
While saying that Dr Okwuada was a founding member of People’s Democratic Party (PDP), he said he was a solicitor and an advocate of political reform and the tenet of one man, one vote.
Speaking further, Mr. Onyeator called on the people of Ika South not to be carried away by the deceitful words of some aspirants, adding that they should elect candidates who have been on ground.
"In the past we made grievous and unforgettable mistakes that have denied us effective representation by those we voted for. They came in sheep’s clothing and humble faces when they were campaigning, but turned into lions after getting hold of power," he explained.
Mr. Onyeator stressed the need for the electorate not to vote for aspirants who had not been with their communities. "This is because they are not on ground; they do not know or understand the political terrain. They are unaware of the problems of the people. That was why in the past we witnessed and recorded clear traits of inefficient, inadequate, ineffective, and inconsistent misrepresentation," he stated.
