Urges him to visit Egbema, other rural communities
A Niger Delta rights activist and leader in the Ijaws of Egbema Kingdom in Warri-North LGA of Delta State,Alaowei Promise Lawuru has urged people of Delta south to return Senator James Ebiowou Manager to represent the region in 2019 at the senate.
He also called on senator James Manager to visit Egbema kingdom as well as otherb rural communities to have a first-hand knowledge of the challenges of people to find solution to them.
Alaowei said,the call became imperative holding to the fact that, since 2003,the Egbema people had supported and voted for Manager, stressing that the senator has not reciprocated them in terms of attracting infrastructural development to their rural communities.
Alaowei who is a member of Delta State Land/Waterways Security Committee and the National President of Egbema Brotherhood lamented that the only access road project in Egbema Kingdom has been abandoned by NDDC and the people are helpless about the situation.
In his words, ‘‘Manager, the Egbema Ijaws have stood by you in all trying times. We have fought our kinsmen politically just to make sure you have it. And we are still behind you. I urge people of Delta South to return Senator Manager to the senate in 2019.
‘‘It is high time you reciprocate them and start your campaign from Egbema kingdom.Meet with the people at the grassroots in the rural villages.It will surprise you that,most of our parents have been hearing your name voting for you always but have not seen you in person.
‘‘The Egbema Ijaws needs urgent government attention. Please use your good office as a senator to influence development and reach out to NDDC to resume work in the abandoned Ofunama road in Egbema kingdom,which is the only road that connect the whole of Egbema,Alaowei Lawuru stated. ” he said.
