ANIOCHA SOUTH LG POLLS: John Chidi Chinedu Thanks Supporters

…Assures Nsukwa Clan of Better Things to Come.


As the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP come to a truce on who will fly the party’s flag in the forthcoming local government elections, a foremost aspirant from Ewulu community, John Chidi Chinedu has expressed gratitude to his teeming supporters.

In a Thank- You meeting he held with his supporters on Sunday at his residence in Ewulu, Chinedu commended his supporters for their zeal and passion in pursuing the cause of Equity and Justice for Nsukwa clan, and for the confidence reposed on him to lead the people of Aniocha South to greater heights.

He recalled how he had gained support at every door he knocked since consultations for the Chairmanship seat began in December last year, owing to the uprightness and goodwill of his father, Chief C.J. Tugwa whose footsteps he followed.

Chinedu said the meeting is to update his supporters with the current position of the leadership of the party in Aniocha South on who will become the flag bearer in the forthcoming local government elections, noting that the Equity cause was not jettisoned, and they were choosing the path of peace, in recognition that Party is Supreme.

He said the leadership of Aniocha South had given support that “power should go to Nsukwa Clan in the Council election”, as signed by 26 out of 36 leaders.

“But you know Party is Supreme. The same leadership that has taken us this far called us again and said Party faithful, we have looked at the whole situation. Kindly allow things to go. Let’s toe the path of peace. Let us leave it. There is a future”
“When they said so, we said Ok, let us listen to the voice of our parents -our political leaders – and that’s the reason why I’m talking to my followership as well, so that they know that we did not jettison the cause” Chinedu added.

He urged his supporters to remain obedient to the leadership of the PDP and look forward to a brighter future, even as he expresses optimism that the leaders would live up to their assurances.

The Director General of the Chidi John Chinedu Campaign train, Sir Tony Ofuani commended the leaders and supporters for standing by the truth and for the display of maturity and decorum throughout the campaign period, saying that all campaign messages were devoid of calumny and rancour, even as she lauded his principal, Chinedu for deploying financial resources unreservedly to ensure the victory for Nsukwa Clan.

Acknowledging the presence of Mr Raymond Izukwe, another Nsukwa Clan indigene who also contested the Aniocha South Chairmanship seat under the PDP, Sir Ofuani said it was an indication that politics in Nsukwa clan is not a do or die affair, and prayed for sustenance of such friendliness.

A PDP Faithful and member of the John Chidi Campaign group, SSA to the governor on women mobilisation Bridget Modebe said Nsukwa clan has through the Equity movement set the precedence that they must be consulted in any decision concerning the Local Government, and have proven that Chidi John Chinedu was a force to be reckoned with, hence it was no longer business as usual in the politics of the local Government.

She said it was a win-win situation for all and called on Nsukwa clan to remain united, sincere, and steadfast to enable them to move forward.

Some political leaders in Nsukwa clan who spoke, including a member of the Delta State House of Assembly Commission and Uweobi of Nsukwa Clan, Chief Innocent Okofu, and a PDP Chieftain Chief Rigogo said the three clans that made up Aniocha South had been peaceful and united because the positions of Commissioner, House of assembly and Council Chairman was distributed amongst the clans for balance, but were about to be shortchanged, hence the struggle for the political liberation of Nsukwa clan, under the aegis of the Concerned Youths for the Political Liberation of Nsukwa Clan, which later evolved to Equity group.

They said since 1998, Nsukwa clan had been at the background making other politicians, adding that the recent movement has led to the discovery of more tested and trusted indigenes, even as he recalled the quality content of the manifesto of Chinedu containing the blueprint of his agenda, indicating the deep knowledge of the issues affecting Aniocha South and his preparedness to tackle them.

It was an emotional moment for Chinedu when the supporters called for the adoption of CCT as the new theme name for the group in honor of his late father, Chief C.J. Tugwa, who has been supportive of the group before his demise, as the supporters chanted his praise.
