By Ejiro Ortega,
The Televangelist and popular radio preacher and also a House of Representative hopeful for the Ughelli North/South/Udu federal constituency on the platform of the All Progressives Party, Rev. Francis Ejiroghene Waive, has told APC delegates to give their votes to credible and popular candidates during the party primary election of the party.
Addressing thousands of supporters who thronged the venue where the Rev. Francis Ejiroghene Waive opened his campaign office along the DSC/Aladja Express Road in Udu, Udu Local Government Area of Delta State, Rev. Waive tasked APC leaders in Delta not to give party ticket to unpopular candidates, assuring that if given the party’s ticket, he has no doubt that he will win the election convincingly with the backing of the church.
Speaking at the occasion, Waive said he was optimistic of winning the election next year, saying that there is need to change the narrative that says, “Politics is dirty,’ politics is not dirty but some of the
characters”, we are here to change that.
I want to beg you for your support, we are changing that narrative, making politics a matter of service for the people, and we will make projects to be visible, traceable and useful.
According to him, “anybody that PDP brings, I will defeat him in the general election. Let’s not give the ticket to someone because he is a family member or a friend of the family, let’s give it to someone that
can give our party victory and give our people effective representation.
Waive who enjoys the backing of the leadership of CAN/PFN in the state, with most of his members and supporter drown from the churches in the three local governments and beyond, promised to be accessible to his constituents if elected.
Speaking also, one of the party’s women leaders, Dr. Mrs. Janet Oyubu, reeled out the achievements of the APC-led government in the past three years under the Buhari’s administration, urging Deltans to vote for the party come 2019 elections
