-By Michael EKOKORUWE:
Isoko South chapter of the Delta State Artisan’s Council members have been urged to collect their PVC as it is the ticket to vote the right candidate of their choice.
The chairman of the chapter, Comrade Ewhre E. Richard made the call during the general monthly meeting of the union held at Oleh, Isoko South local government area of Delta State.
Comrade Ewhre charged members of the union that have registered to collect their PVC and ensure that others are informed as well. He stated that artisans will vote for credible candidates that know the pain of the common man and not political party, adding that members with educational background are qualified to contest for any position.
The chairman said, the 2018 artisans week celebration scheduled to hold by November, will focus on orphans and the less privileged in the society. Ewhre decried poor electricity in Isoko land, which according to him has affected the daily work of hair dressers, barbers, tailors, welders, business centers and others even as members at the end of every month pay for electricity bills.
He called on staffs of BEDC in Isoko to have a change of attitude and ensure that the light is stable to satisfy their customers. He maintained that paying for light bills every month which is not availability for use, calls for serious concern.
Comrade Ewhre commended the State governor, Senator Dr.Ifeanyi Okowa for infrastructural development in Delta State even as he appealed for Isoko South artisans to be considered for employment in the state and federal level. He said, artisans are among the grass root electorates that politicians commit to winning their election.
The chairman also called on President Mohamadu Buhari to find lasting solution to the incessant killing in the country so that Nigeria can be safe for all to live in, especially during the 2019 general election.
