Since January 2018, I and many well meaning people have been firm on the need for Ika South, to be supported for house of representatives. Although not all persons are active politicians, we are all abreast with the needs of the common Ika man as we all share a collective destiny and belief that our unity is priceless.
I have also observed a few selfish politicians claim that no Ika South person has indicated interest for the position of house of representatives.
That is a blatant lie. Dr. Philip Okwuada, has not only indicated interest, but I believe that he will pick his party’s ticket for the said position. Although a few beneficiaries of Mr Victor Nwokolo want to market his third term bid, they have been unable to account for what he has done for our collective interest to make him deserve our trust again.
I am aware, that Mr Victor Nwokolo gave vehicles as gifts to some Agbor people. I am not envious of them but oppose such old ways to life of using our collective money that should have been channeled towards the development of our Ika Federal constituency.
I am appealing to people of Ika Nation to support Dr Phillip Okwuada, and I frown at the Agbor politicians who for the sake of collected gifts, work against their brother and not based on conviction.
I am aware that the Governor Okowa, in march 2015, promised that 2019 will be the turn of Ika South for the Federal House of Representatives. We know that his traditional title, Ekwueme, forbids him to break his words.
Let’s not forget, that if we don’t get it right this time, it will be difficult to predict what the future holds in regards to the unity of the Ika Nation. Do not be deceived.
Dr Phillip Okwuada, has contributed enormously to his party PDP and has suffered too much for and with PDP. It is time for his party to support him.
