Mr Oke Idawene

Delta Politician and Social Democratic Mega Party (SDMP) Delta State House of Assembly candidate,  Olomoro Isoko South Constituency II  in 2011  general election,   Oke Idawene    has appealed  to Isoko indigenes to unite, irrespective of their political differences and vote for candidates who will assiduously work for the development of their various local government area.

Idawene gave the advise during a media interview with our correspondent in Transcorp Abuja at the just concluded political conference organised by the National Assembly.
“In a few months from now with the legal expectation that Governor Uduaghan will conduct the elections very soon, we are going to elect our Councilors and Chairmen in the twenty five local government area of our great Delta state. Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. The only thing we need to fear is fear itself.  Let us unite, irrespective of our political differences and vote for credible candidates who will assiduously work for the development of our various local government,” Idawene, who is Olu Falea political son advised, adding that they should vote for  candidates  that have courage and clean records.
He cautioned them to   jointly effectively filter all aspirants before giving them tickets at party level, adding that the populace should work with only credible Candidates.
“It is enough of bad leadership in Delta state. Together we can do it. For the time is always right to do the right thing. The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today so let us move forward with strong and active faith,” he advised.
 Idawene   who  lamented the poor manner and lackadaisical  approach at which Isoko leaders  handle the affairs of  Isoko people reiterated that  if  they must reposition  Isoko Nation to a place of  reckoning and greater heights, they  must change their approach of leadership.
According to him,” It is only fools that keeps doing a particular thing and expect a different result.  Change is the law of life and those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.”
Idawene, who said he respects and appreciate all effort made by  past and present Isoko leaders in government, maintained that if they must reposition Isoko nation to its former place of glory and  greater height,  the  indigenes   must change their approach to leadership.
“It is only fools that keep doing a particular thing and expect a different result.  This pattern of winner takes all, no community development programmes, no government presence in our respective wards and local government. To worsen it, the people are left in the dark without a forum of meeting their leaders so as to err their views for them to know their pains. Presently their respective offices in the local governments and constituencies are either abandoned, not active or some do not have at all,” Idawene argued, just as he enjoined elected Isoko leaders and political appointees  to as a matter of urgency heed  the voice of wisdom and correct the anomalies for the Isokos  to take its place of Glory.
“No space of regret can make amends for one life’s opportunity misused and note that you can never cross the ocean unless you have courage to lose sight of the shore. Please let us change now,” Idawene advised Isoko leaders.
