Victor O. Nwaokolo, Hon. Ndudi Elumelu and Hon. Ossai N. Ossai and all Anioma sons elected into the State House of Assembly.
According to the communiqué, Delta people had evolved a system of understanding that made each Senatorial District very relevant in governance of the State. Adding that the choice of Senator (Dr.) Ifeanyi Okowa, an Anioma son, a detribalized/new breed politician and an achiever made PDP’s victory a landslide with unprecedented huge vote.
The Izu Anioma communiqué also noted that the reelection of Senator (Dr.) Ifeanyi Okowa was also attributed to the political equation engineered by the Delta State PDP aimed at having a dependable platform for unity, peace, fairness, and a sense of inclusiveness that guaranteed continuous development in the State,
The communiqué therefore thanked all Deltans, particularly other Ethnic Nationalities in Delta State for their massive support depicted in the overwhelming votes from their areas. Stressing that Delta North Senatorial District would reciprocate this gesture in the future when the need arises.
The communiqué however called for a practical synergy between all elected Anioma sons with Izu Anioma to avoid disconnect from the aspirations and expectations of the people of Anioma.
