A frontline contender for the Councillorship race in Kiagbodo Dsiec ward 8, Burutu Local Government Area of Delta State, Comr. Goddey Izakpa has promised to deliver effective representation if elected as the councillor to represent his people. The Liberator Newspapers can report.
The young Kiagbodo leader gave the assurance recently during a function at the community, stressing that over time he has waited to serve the people under this capacity.
He said a vote for him would be the transformation and political liberation to the people of Kiagbodo, adding that youths will smile throughout his tenure as a councillor if elected.
Comr. Izakpa said he believes that he is the right man for the job as he truly understands the pains of Kiagbodians, maintaining that his emergence would no doubt add more value to the polity.
In his words, Comr. Mejuwa T. Godswill, a social media practitioner said “Most Kiagbodians are optimistic that if the opportunity to serve is given to comrade Goddey Ebi-Pere Izakpa he will deliver the overdue dividends of democracy, such as a constant power supply, improved educational system, employment, security, improved medical facilities, amongst other things, so as to better the lot of its citizens.
“This in turn will position Ngbilebiri ward 8 in its rightful place within the comity of wards in the local government area.
“For a community like Kiagbodo to sustain and maintain its democratic structure and story, issues of nepotism, religion, selfishness and corruption must be relegated and replaced by the tenets of meritocracy, unity despite political affiliation, credibility, transparency, responsibility and accountability.”
