SDP Assembly Candidate Pledges Better Deal


AHEAD of the 2015 polls, the Social Democratic Party (SDP) candidate for the Delta State House of Assembly for Aniocha North, Stephen Ukwamedua has promised robust representation for the people.

According to him, he decided to contest to represent his people because many of those who had represented his constituency in the past failed them.

Ukwamedua, argued that he had all it takes to provide qualitative representation given his experience and background as an educationist and community leader.

“I worked as a civil servant and retired from the Delta State Ministry of Education. In my area, the people are neglected and they lack political education. Many of those who had contested and are contesting do not reside within the locality, so they do not know the challenges the people in the area are facing. They come from outside the state, woo the electorate with cash and other material gifts during elections rather than telling the people what they hope to do when they get elected and convincing them why he should be voted into office.”

For him, if elected, it will be an opportunity for somebody who has served the people in the past to take them to greater heights.

He maintained that he would make a difference from the present sad situation where the youths have no jobs, no durable roads and pipe borne water in the communities.

“Yet our representatives are given constituency project fund, which they lavish and end up not executing any meaningful project to show for the huge sums collected.”

He promised that if he gets elected, he would be accountable and work to improve the living conditions of his people.

“It should not be about giving stipends but executing programmes and projects that all the people will cherish and benefits from.”
