High Chief Opone, a promising governorship aspirant under the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in 2015, promised an effective representation, with focused development policies if elected into the Federal House of Representative.
Opone who recently decamped to the APC stated this while addressing journalist soon after after picking his Nomination Form at the APC, National Secretariat in Abuja.
According to the Lagos based accountant, “I promised that my first assignment if elected into office would be the completion of the ongoing Kwale Power Sub Station Construction that President Muhammadu Buhari has budgeted N4.2 billion”.
“By my professional career, as an accountant, I will make membership of Finance and Appropriation committee of the House of Representatives, a platform that will afford me and the good people of Ndokwa Nation that I represent to ensure that they approve needed funds for the Ndokwa Electricity project”, he further assured.
He also reassured that, ”I will also ensure that the House Committee on Power and Energy carry out its oversight function to ensure speed delivery of the project,”.
For opinion mouders of Ndokwa, the decision of the politician to go for the House of Representatives ticket presently being held by his cousin, Rt. Hon. Ossai Ossai, remains a puzzle as the Senate could have been more befitting for his status, having performed creditably well during the 2015 governorship race in the state.
