Ahead of 2019 general elections,a young leader of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP,Ward 7 Ayakoromo in Burutu Local Government Area of Delta State,royal Prince Kelvin Perekeme has accused the governor of Delta State,His Excellency,Dr.Ifeanyi Okowa on what it termed wickedness and ungrateful to the Ijaws by neglecting the riverine communities in terms of even distribution of social amenities across the state.
Prince Kelvin stress that, despite the block votes the Ijaws gave to Okowa during 2015 election,what the governor can do is to deliberately deprive them from dividends of Democracy in the past three years and six months in office.He regretted that the Ijaws made the greatest mistake by supporting Okowa in the past, and that 2019 shall correct every wrong.
Speaking to NDM News Xclusive, which copy was send to Mainnews.blog Prince Kelvin buttress that,” how could a reasonable government approves the construction of 70 roads in a five different ethnic state and none is located in Ijaw riverine communities?Are the Ijaws not Part of Delta State ?
The worse part of it,the Ayakoromo bridge which Okowa promised to complete before his first term elapse is abandoned and yet the government said is working.I want to made it clear here that,if Okowa fail to review the 70 road projects recently approved by his government and allocate some to Ijaw riverine communities,he should not dare to campaign to riverine communities for vote in 2019 elections.
The Ijaws in Delta State cannot be treated like a second class citizens in their own state. We must say No to a bad leadership come 2019 with our PVCs.It shall no longer be as usual this time around.The youths are now politically awakened to resist any form of poor and ineffective leadership at the polls,Prince Kelvin asserted. “
