Hon. Ikechukwu Chukwuweta, former Councillor, Ward 14 in Oshimili South local government area of Delta State, stated that the people believes that nobody should go for elective position in an office for second term.

According to him, “our leaders have agreed that we should not go for second term for proper rotation and equitable representation, we believe Hon. Onyia is capable of winning in the election and give us a voice in the House of Assembly.”

“Hon. Onyia is popular, he is experienced, well respected and all former councilors in Oshimili South have gone back to their Wards to mobilize votes for him,” Hon. Chukwuweta said, adding, “for the first time, we are going to have a member of the House of Assembly from Cable Point which is one of the most populous areas of Asaba.”

The former Councillor observed that Hon. Onyia has support in all the Wards in the area and his winning the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) ticket will be an easy task as it will prepare the party for electoral victory in 2015.

Reacting to the endorsement by the former Councillors, Hon. Onyia said it was good because he has contributed to the development of Asaba from when he was operating the only club in the town, Tonylinks Club and till date, asserting, “as an individual, I will continue to contribute my quota to the development of Oshimili South.”

“In 2015, Oshimili South will have a voice in the House of Assembly and by the grace of God, I will give them that voice,” Hon. Onyia said.
