Amukpe Community Endorse Ogodo for DTHA Seat
As the April 2011 general elections in Nigeria ticks in, the Amukpe Community in Sapele Local Government Area of Delta State have unanimously endorsed their son Dr. Cyril Abeye Ogodo for the Delta State House race under the Democratic Peoples Party (DPP).
The people of Amukpe Community who adopted Dr. Ogodo for House of Assembly race to represent Sapele constituency explained through Chief Godwin Edeki, the community spokesman that having studied Dr. Cyril’s pedigree as a true son of the land and a philanthropist per-excellence, they have no choice but to massively vote for him during the April election.
They told him to be a man of his words and take to his promises at the time he gets to the House since they believe he will win the election with God on his side.
Dr. Ogodo assured them that he is going to the House to give them effective representation which would attract all the dividends of democracy to their door steps stressing that gone are the days when politicians make promises they know they can not actualized, appealing that they should cast their votes for him because a vote for Dr. Cyril Ogodo, is a vote for development, a vote for plenty of food on their table and the end to poverty.
Dr. Ogodo said in life everything has its own time, and this is the time for the Amukpe people to produce their own son whose mother is from the community to the House because in the past, Amukpe has never had a prominent person in government that has listened to their plights.
He stressed further that at the House, those things that would move the community forward will be his area of focus, such as the bad roads, network at Ogegere, Amukpe and its environs, non presence of electricity at Ogegere, poor health care facilities and the problem of flooding in Amukpe which he tried to solve during his days as the team health officer of the Sapele Local Government but could not achieve due to his retirement from the service.
The political stalwart also assured the Amukpe Community that the Amukpe market would be rehabilitated and transformed to an ultra modern market if elected their representative through good legislation in consonance with the governor of the state.
