The member representing Burutu Federal Constituency, House of Representatives, Hon. Julius Pondi has appreciated people of the constituency for returning him back to the house during the last Saturday’s elections.
This was contained in a gracefully written appreciation message personally signed by him, circulated to several social media platforms and various newspaper houses, a copy of which was sent to The Liberator Newspaper yesterday.
In the statement, Hon. Pondi had vowed to work hard in collaboration with others in the building of a new and better Burutu Federal Constituency.
The federal lawmaker had promised never to betray the confidence reposed on him by the electorates, the PDP in Delta State and that of the Burutu Local Government, his campaign council, various support groups, family members and all those that played one role or the other for his electoral victory.
It would be recalled that Hon Pondi of PDP won his closest rival, Hon. Karona Etonye of the APC in all the eleven wards constituting the Burutu federal constituency.
The statement reads in full bellow:
THANK YOU, MY DEAR CONSTITUENTS
Let me start by returning all the glory to the Almighty God who in His infinite mercy favoured me to be chosen by all of you to return to the Green Chamber to continue to drive the interest of Burutu people in the National Assembly of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. I am indeed humbled by your benevolence.
Please, grant me the indulgence to wholeheartedly thank the thousands of Burutu Federal Constituents who turned out to vote and re-elect me and all other candidates of our party, the People’s Democratic Party. We appreciate you all.
My sincere gratitude also goes to the collective leadership of the People’s Democratic Party in Burutu Federal Constituency, who dedicated their time and resources in ensuring that they won their various wards for our dear party, the People’s Democratic Party.
In particular, I would like to thank the Burutu Local Government Campaign Council, ably led by Wing Commander P. Y Biakpara (rtd), co-ordinated by Chief Julius Takeme, fantastically scribed by Hon. Godknows Angele, alongside Mr. Ebike Oromoni and all ward chairmen and ward campaign council Co-ordinators for their very commendable efforts towards ensuring that I remain the only preferred choice of the people of Burutu Federal Constituency.
My deep thanks also go to members of the Julius Pondi Media team, members of the Pondified Ambassadors, the Unstoppable Force, Delta Ijaw Youths Movement, volunteers and other support groups that stood by me throughout the campaigns and subsequently, the elections.
Let me thank members of the Julius Pondi Campaign Organization ably led by Hon.

They stood by me through thick and thin to ensure that we achieved our collective goal of returning me to the National Assembly. Clearly, I can not thank you enough.
That I have been returned to represent the good people of Burutu Federal Constituency in the National Assembly with a clear difference in the polls, to me, is an assurance that my efforts are acknowledged and appreciated by my constituents. Therefore, by your fresh endorsement and mandate, you have asked me to go and work more to lift Burutu to greater heights at the National level. The responsibility thrust on me is enormous and I want to assure everyone that I shall continue to concentrate my efforts on ways and means on improving on the delivery of more dividends of democracy to our constituency.
Let me assure you, my dear constituents that I shall not relent in my passion to continuously serve and protect the best interest of our people in the Green Chambers of the National Assembly for the next four years.
In conclusion, I am graciously indebted to my adorable wife, and my children for their understanding and support. My uncle and brothers for their immeasurable assistance. They provided me their moral and other required resources including valuable time in achieving this new mandate of our beloved people.
