Delta LGA: Crisis Brews in Ndokwa West over imposition of Osakwe’s Son as Chairman

Senator Ifeanyi Osakwe

By Fidel Njamanze
LAGOS 28TH (URHOBOTODAY)-Political crisis is brewing in Ndokwa West LGA, Delta state, over alleged imposition ofSenator Ifeanyi Osakwe’s son as Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chairmanship candidate Ndokwa West Local Government Area of Delta State.
Urhobotoday reliably gathered that stakeholders in the local government area on Saturday unanimously rejected the imposition of Senator Osakwe’s son purportedly anointed by a former Governor of Delta State, Chief James Ibori, just as they described the candidate the imposed candiadte as a stranger.

The leaders who appealed to Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan and the State Chairman of Delta Srate PDP, Chief Peter Nwaoboshi to halt the imposition of a chairmanship candidate on the people of Ndokwa West, attributed their position on the poor performance of Senator Osakwe in the senate, particularly his inability to attract dividend of democracy to the area and his failure to empower or create jobs for the people.
Speaking to Urhobotoday in Kwale on behalf of the protesters, Barrister Nduka Benson and Mr. Nduka Omede among others, said the planned imposition of a candidate by Senator Osakwe was not acceptable, saying that all the aspirants should be given a level playing ground to test their popularity at the PDP primary elections.
According to them, the imposition of any candidate against the will of the people could lead to violence and unimaginable crisis, adding that imposition of candidates was a negation and violation of PDP’s stand on free, fair, credible and transparent primary elections.
Reiterating their unalloyed support for Governor Uduaghan and Chief Peter Nwaoboshi, they appealed to both leaders to use their good offices to prevail on Senator Osakwe to retrace his steps to avoid crisis in Ndokwa West Local Government Area.
