Immediate past Chairman of Isoko-South Local Government Council in Delta State, Itiako Ikpokpo, has declared his intention to contest for the House of Representatives’ seat.
Ikpokpo, who aspires to represent Isoko Federal Constituency in 2023, disclosed this while flagging-off a consultation visit to some traditional rulers in both Isoko-North and South local council areas.
Addressing his well-wishers and supporters, Ikpokpo said: “Driven by my conviction, strength of commitment and after due consultations with my family, prominent leaders across the spectrum, stakeholders, elders and members of our great party, People’s Democratic Party (PDP), I wish to declare my intention to contest for the seat of the House of Representatives, as a member representing Isoko Federal Constituency on the PDP platform.
“I offer myself to serve and if elected, I will firmly and unreservedly deploy my decades of multi-dimensional experience in the public and private sectors.
“Contribute robustly to the national discourse, sponsor and support credible legislations for the good governance, security, peace, unity and development of our dear country, Nigeria.
“Initiate and support legislations, bills, motions, policies and programmes that will project and advance the yearnings, aspirations and developmental needs of the Isoko nation,” Ikpokpo stated.
My ambition is, “To interface, lobby and engage critically, Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) of the Federal Government, relevant authorities and institutions towards attracting government attention and presence to the Isoko nation,” Ikpokpo said.
