A foremost Senatorial hopeful for the Delta South Senatorial district, Dr Sylvester Onoyona, has joined the All Progressives Congress (APC) aspirants who have picked up their expression of interest and nomination forms.
Onoyona who stormed the National Headquarters of his party to buy his forms to contest for the flagbearer of his party declaring that, “I am trusted and strongly relaiable.”
The Emede Isoko-born democrat who was in company of a mammoth crowd of supporters, declared to his faithful that: “no retreat no surrender, rescuing our Senatorial district is a collective desire that we must achieve.”
Onoyona had been represented at the upper Chambers of the National Assembly by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), but the real estate mogul said that he would end the era of the umbrella Party in the district stating that people were willing to embrace a prosperous change that would cut across nook and crannies of Delta south.
He decried what he called the massive failure of the PDP occasioned by deliberate neglect of the Delta South and mindless impoverishment of the people using the weapon of poor representation and governance ,saying that the people deserve much better than that.
Onoyona said that he has come to perfect the imperfections in the the area.
On his manifesto, christened: ”the social contract with my people; stands on a tripod of: massive material, human development and empowerment; security and food sufficiency, he said that the people were in dire need of quality representation from a tested and trusted person who would fill the vacuum.
Onoyona said that the time has come for all APC faithful in the district to queue behind his aspiration, take the message to the grassroot as he appeal to delegates to consider the need for a better Delta South and vote for him at the forthcoming party primaries.
“Having purchased this form that I have dedicated to the people of Delta south across ethnic divides, the time has come for us to rise up to make it a success for me to represent you in the Senate.
” I have the capacity, war chest, the aptitude, the decency, honesty, the reach, ruggedness, mental and psychological capacity to represent my people and this we shall achieve by going all out to earn success at the poll.
“The delegates are germane to my success and its our place to appeal and make them see reasons to put me forward in an overwhelming victory at the polls during the primaries.
“The APC delegates and members of Delta South senatorial district are happy to nominate who has personal relationship and consultation with them, not renegades, disloyal, half-hearted party men, they don’t know or trust.
”I promise never to fail my people when finally given the mandate,” he said.
