AHEAD of gubernatorial elections in 2015, the Ndokwa ethnic nationality in Delta State has said they will work with other ethnic groups to ensure the emergence of an Ndokwa man as Governor in the state.
This position was made known at the weekend when a socio-political organization, Ndokwa Unite celebrated their day at Kwale, Ndokwa West Local Government Area of Delta State.
Those who spoke at the occasion include a former gubernatorial aspirant in the defunct Bendel State, Chief Otunuya Iwegbue (aka Okpondiogwu), the Pro Chancellor of Novena University, Ogume, Mr Chuks Ochonogor, Barrister Benedicta Osakuni-Izuegbu, Commissioner in the Delta State Oil Producing Communities Development Commission (DESOPADEC) and the President of Ndokwa National Union (NNU), Pharm. Paul Enebeli who was represented by Pastor Jonathan Dike.
Others who spoke include, Engr. Smart Agunobi and Attorney at Law, Francis Obi.
According to Dr. O. P. Opia, in a welcome address, Ndokwa Unite was formed to project Ndokwa cause among other communities in Delta State and Nigeria at large adding that the Ndokwa people “must strive to attain the top most position in Delta State.”
Also, Mr Ochonogor said that the emergence of Ndokwa man as Governor in 2015 is not impossible if the people are united, stating that individually, every Ndokwa son and daughter is committed to ensuring that an Ndokwa man becomes the Governor in 2015.
He called on the people to avoid “pull him down” syndrome and urged politicians to avoid applying violence as such will not endear them to the people.
Chief Iwegbue said, Ndokwa is well positioned to produce the Governor in 2015 being an area rich in oil and gas and with cordial relationship with their neighbours in Aniocha, Ika, Urhobo, Isoko, Ijaws, among others, emphasizing that victory in election is collective and as such, the Ndokwa nation will work with all ethnic groups in Delta State to ensure that an Ndokwa man emerges victorious in the 2015 gubernatorial election.
The former governorship aspirant said Ndokwa people can no longer play second fiddle to anybody but deserves the number one position in the state as an “Ndokwa agenda will be acceptable to all Deltans.”
President of Ndokwa National Union, the apex body of socio-cultural organizations in Ndokwa-land, Pharm. Enebeli, whose address was read by Pastor Jonathan Dike, urged the people to shun violence and be united to ensure that they achieve their mission.
While, Mr. Henry Okechukwu described the turnout of people as encouraging as a result of the political reawakening in Ndokwa land, Mrs. Benedicta Osakuni-Izuegbu called for a more united Ndokwa.
For Mr. Obi and Agunobi, an Ndokwa man is better placed to emerge as Governor in 2015 and as such, concerted efforts should be made especially, in terms of relating with other ethnic nationality to buy into the idea.

The call for unity among ndokwa nation politicians is well made but are we ready for the challenge ahead•The man everybody have eye on Mr Godswill Obieulum is he prepared and ready to fly our flag with the characters around him?•I fear and feel for ndokwa nation•.
The importance of unity in achieving any agenda cannot be overemphasized. It was in unity that the first historic/biblical tower was built. It took disunity set in by God to disorganize and dislodge the people from achieving their agenda. The importance of unity is further emphasized by Prophet Amos in Amos 3:3 “Can two walk together except they are united ( in agreement)? The Cancer eating Ndokwa nation is disunity and pull-him-down syndrome. Until all hands are on deck to do a surgical operation on that Cancer, Ndokwa nation will continue to go round in cycles like the ancient people of Isreal.
