The communique signed by members of the Board of Trustees of Ndokwa Unite, Dr Bonnyface Opia, Barr. Greg Ikoko and Mr Mathew Emeni respectively, argued:
“Delta Central did eight years in Government House, Delta South will complete theirs in 2015, as such, it is important that Delta North produces the Governor in 2015, not only because of the zoning formula of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) but because of equity.”
The group stated that it is important that other senatorial districts support the quest of Delta North for the 2015 gubernatorial race disclosing that the gubernatorial seat should go to Ndokwa ethnic nationality.
“Ndokwa is the only ethnic nationality that has cultural affinity with the Ijaws, Itshekiris, Isokos, Urhobos, Ikas, Aniochas and the Oshimils,” the group said, adding, “an Ndokwa man as Governor of Delta State will not be biased and will work for the overall interest of Deltans, Ndokwa is the stabilizing factor for 2015.”
The group stated that in Delta North, Ndokwa is the only oil producing area with large deposit of gas, reiterating that, “it will be only fair that Ndokwa nation produces the Governor in 2015.”
Ndokwa Unite observed that while Oshimili has produced a Premier and Deputy Governor, Ikas has produced a Deputy Governor, Aniocha has produced a Deputy Governor, it is only Ndokwa that has not produced someone who has held such a high office, adding, “we are seeking the understanding and cooperation of all Deltans to ensure that an Ndokwa man becomes the Governor of Delta State in 2015.”
The group used the occasion to congratulate the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for successfully concluding its congresses and national convention noting that such was good for democracy.
