Creation of Anioma state will Correct Injustice – Group

The leadership of the Ukpe Anioma Progressive Association (UAPA) has given their support to Senator Ned Nwoko, who represents Delta North senatorial district in the National Assembly, over the creation of Anioma state as the sixth state of the South East geopolitical zone.

They said since the National Assembly is desirous of correcting the injustice meted out to the South East geopolitical zone with only five states as against the six states in all other geopolitical zones, the need to take advantage of the good national intention and ensure that Anioma becomes the beneficiary cannot be overemphasized.

The National Coordinator, Chief Alex Ikpeazu, flanked by other senatorial leaders: Emeka Okolie, Ben Enwose-Williams, Dr. Chris Ugoh, Chief Joe Nwaoyor, Chief Gabriel Ohai, Chief Fred Okoruwe, Chief Alfred Obuseh, Vera Nwanodu Adesotu, Stella Bardi, and Chukwuma Dafe, at a meeting held in Agboh, Ika North Local Government Area, Delta State, called on all their sons and daughters to overwhelmingly support this historic opportunity.

They saluted the courage and wisdom of Senator Nwoko in championing that noble cause, which was generously debated along with other burning issues concerning the Anioma region and vowed to do everything within their power to encourage him.

While appreciating the Senator for 14 motions and 19 bills moved, submitted, and proposed, they agreed Anioma people have never had a representative with an open-door policy, who is impacting directly on the generality of the people, irrespective of political affiliation.

They urged Senator Nwoko to set aside as an annual event the historic gathering of civil servants, community leaders, and indigenous people of Anioma extraction residing in Abuja, where he had an eventful interaction with them, where questions were satisfactorily answered, which was the very first time any representative has had such.

As part of their resolutions, UAPA stated that: “In the history of political representation of our people at the National Assembly, has any representative intentionally opened their heart and mind for effective representation of our people as we are seeing in Ned Nwoko and we will, therefore:

“Constituency projects which hitherto were selfishly and secretly distributed by our past representatives to their cronies have now been laid bare with beneficiaries cutting across all political parties and ordinary Anioma sons and daughters by Senator Ned Nwoko in virtually all the communities in Delta North,” Ikpeazu noted.
