Nigerian born billionaire businessman and former member of the House of Representatives, Hon. Ned Nwoko has picked the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, nomination and expression of interest forms for the Delta North Senatorial District race in the 2023 general elections.
Nwoko’s supporters had stormed the Wadata House of the National Secretariat of the party to obtain the forms which they have handed over to him.
This has since attracted massive jubilation among the people of Delta North at home and in Diaspora as they believe the time has come to recover their stolen mandate.
Hon. Ned, a visible anti-malaria campaigner in Africa is said to be popular among his people because of numerous philanthropic outreaches he has initiated and completed aimed at touching the lives of the people.
Malaria is said to be prevalent in the Niger Delta region because of oil production and exploration activities in the region.
The intervention of Hon. Ned has however brought succour to the people as the malaria mortality rate across the Niger Delta and the country will largely be reduced.
The campaign has gone beyond the shores of Nigeria to the African Continent and global community.
He has also attracted commendations for his numerous empowerment schemes for young people in the region which have also reduced insecurity, youth restiveness and improved living standards of families.
Not long ago, he attracted license and constructed the first sports Institution, Stars University in Delta which seeks to harness talents among young athletes and give them a meaningful living.
These and many more were responsible for his victory to represent Delta North in 2019, which was however truncated in a complex legal battle.
This development was said to have upset the Senatorial district who felt that their mandate was willed to an impostor in the person of Sen. Peter Nwaoboshi.
Despite carrying the mandate of PDP, the ruling party in Delta, Nwaoboshi has since defected to APC.
Hopes are however high that Hon. Ned Nwoko has both the people’s support and financial war chest to recover the people’s mandate.
