Following the alleged poor representation of the good people of Warri North Local Government Area of Delta State, a social activist and political analyst, Prince Justice Akuyoma has joined the race for the Warri North Assembly seat, according to him to address perculiar needs of the local government area.
Meantime, Justice Akuyoma is from Itsekiri ethnic nationality, Warri North Local Government Area of the state, a man considered to be most qualified for the assembly seat.
Akuyoma who consulted the Ijaw leaders and stakeholders of Egbema Kingdom during a political parley in Warri, Delta state on Monday said he is contesting for the assembly seat for equitable and robust representation.
The politcal analyst stated, “My name is Justice O. Akuyoma, I’m from Itsekiri ethnic nationality, I am from Warri North Local Government Area, am contesting for the position to representing the people of Warri North, in the state assembly.
“This contest is born out of sheer representation, and the people of Warri North comprises of the Ijaws and the Itsekiris, for the past years they’re not been equally represented and I think my coming in as a representative of the people of Warri North will provide a robust and inclusive representation.
He added,”Government is a continuous thing but my people in the past years have been suffering and crying for development and empowerment. These are some of the things that my people are not enjoying over the years due to poor representation. I am promising my people when elected as their representative, I am going to represent them and bring all the dividends of democracy back to them”.
“My simple message to the delegates is that in the past, they’re being collecting money to vote but not to vote for the competent representative, I am urging the people of Warri North to come out enmass and vote for the likes of personality of Justice Akuyoma to represent them and they will never regret, he noted.
