A politician, comedian and activist, Mr. Hilary Obi Chamberlain has called on all politicians, as well as electorate in Delta State to refrain from casting their votes or giving supports to failed leaders in the state who are seeking for one elective position or the other, saying that it will be very unethical if anyone does that.
He said the emphoria and earth quaking celebration that filled the air in all parts of Delta State after the Appeal Court sitting in Benin City nullified the election of the former governor of the state, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, showed how shameful and bad, some leaders in the PDP led government in Delta State have rubbished the Nigerian democracy, Mr. Chamberlian, who is not happy with the attitudes of those compelling the masses to vote for failed leaders who have nothing to offer, asserted that twelve years of uninterrupted democracy have left the people of Ika nation with nothing but the following:
One: Untold hardship and unemployment for the teeming youths, who today have no good option of survival than to engage themselves in some inmoral acts.
Two: A collapsed bridge and pothole ridden roads. He added that, "our failed leaders are begging for our votes when some of our children were killed and many injured at the recent water tank disaster at Staff Model Primary School, College of Education, Agbor, because of their unpatriotic leadership styles, or we will vote for them for the illegal fees they are collecting from our unemployed graduates and youths all in the name for giving them job".
While lamenting on the degree of damages corrupt leaders have done to the Ika nation, Mr. Chamberlain said "without mincing words I must say credit should be given to men, women and pressure groups such as Ika Landlords/Landladies Association, Barrister Ifeanyi Aghaolor and Elder John Ehikwe for their immense contribution towards the growth and development of Ika nation", praying that God will continue to give them the strength with which to carry on.
