Ahead of the 2023 general elections, a business guru, Reverend (Comrade) Layefa Thompson Enieghan has declared to run for the Warri South-West constituency seat in Delta State House Assembly 2023.

The declaration which was held in the Ogbe-Ijoh community today (29th March, 2022) was graced by personalities across the constituency.

Layefa who was contesting under the platform of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, said: “We have had representatives who cared only about their salaries and the lining of their pockets with funds meant for constituency projects.

The aspirants stated: “Over the years, I have been privileged to be connected through service to some honourable personalities; these people have one way or the other served our state honourably in different capacities. I have learnt by close observations that political positions are purely an act of service to our people.

“After due consultation with my Creator, Youths, Elders, leaders, political mentors and comrades, I am formally declaring my intention to run as A REPRESENTATIVE of the Warri South-West LGA in the Delta State House of Assembly under the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) today being Saturday 26th March 2022.”

He reiterated, “Despite observing these few honourable men and women who are doing well in serving our people, sadly I have also witnessed several poor representations of our people in the State Assembly which is visible in the poor growth of our constituencies that have been seriously shortchanged in the area of holistic development.”

MY RESPONSE TO THE CALL TO SERVE

My name is Layefa Enienghan Thompson (LET) and I am excited to formally come your way through this means. To all my friends both online and offline, this is especially addressed to you because I owe you all in high esteem.

Over the years, I have been privileged to be connected through service to some honourable personalities; these people have one way or the other served our state honourably in different capacities. I have learnt by close observations that political positions are purely an act of service to our people.

My service under the OGBE-IJOH & ALADJA PEACE PROJECT also opened my eyes more to see and understand the vital needs of credible people in serving in the public space.

Despite observing these few honourable men and women who are doing well in serving our people, sadly I have also witnessed several poor representations of our people in the State Assembly which is visible in the poor growth of our constituencies that has been seriously shortchanged in the area of holistic development.

We have had representatives who cared only about their salaries and the lining of their pockets with funds meant for constituency projects. With this, the need to have more credible people join this service project cannot be overemphasised and I am obligated to do something in that regard.

After due consultation with my Creator, Youths, Elders, leaders, political mentors and comrades, I am formally declaring my intention to run as A REPRESENTATIVE of the Warri South-West LGA in the Delta State House of Assembly under the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) today being Saturday 26th March 2022.

My goal is simple. My motive is pure and my drive is sharp. I am L.E.T and I am committed to bringing about a new LIFTING, a cutting edge EMPOWERMENT and down to earth TEAMWORK

LET is a Fresh Air Breathe in our political space.

LET is the face of the rural struggle for developmental progress.

LET is about bridging the political divide between government and the governed.

LET is about maximising the Impact of Government in Warri South West.

I, therefore, appeal to everyone to give me his or her support not simply because I am young and vibrant but because I have been tested at different levels of leadership since my school days till date and I am well prepared for this.

It will not be possible without you that is why I am coming to you here and right there beyond social media.

Thanks to you all for your time.

Layefa Enienghan Thompson (LET)
LET us do it together!
