Despite clinching the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) House of Representatives ticket for Burutu Federal Constituency, Hon. Julius Pondi, member representing the constituency has shown gratitude to some of the PDP statutory delegates across the local government with cash.
In his speech during the appreciation ceremony at his campaign office, Western Road in Warri yesterday, Pondi had appreciated some of the PDP statutory delegates from all the eleven (11) wards across Burutu Local Government Area.
Those he appreciated include the PDP Burutu Local Government Exco, led by its chairman, Hon. Ebike Oromoni, all ward chairmen and their working committee members across the local government were heavily present to receive their cash appreciation.
However, Pondi had splashed a handsome amount of money for each ward chairman across the local government, all working committee members of the ward and another separate amount for each ward exco member in the Local Government.
The Liberator Newspapers Worldwide can report that the same sharing formular was also used to appreciate the Burutu Local Government PDP chairman, the working committee members of the local government as well as all exco members of the local government.
Hon. Julius Pondi, had asserted that although the news of the supposed delegates not voting other than the ad hoc delegates destabilises a lot of people, adding that he felt he should show some level of love to the PDP Excos even though they were unable to vote.
He particularly appreciated the efforts of PDP members in Burutu Local Government that have always been there for him, stressing that come 2023 with their support and the entire people of Burutu Federal Constituency, he is hopeful that he will fly the PDP flag to victory.
In his words “We are all important hence we must work for the progress of the party in our Local Government, the PDP primary elections have come and gone but we must ensure that we still reach out to the PDP Exco members from ward 1 to 11 in our own way including the Local Government exco.
Meanwhile, in solidarity, Amb. Dr. Shedrack Agediga, Executive Director, Planning, Research and Statistics, Delta State Oil Producing Areas Development (DESOPSDEC) also supported Pondi with a whopping sum of money as entertainment for the PDP Exco members that had come for the occasion.
Speaker after speaker among the PDP ward excos and Hon. Ebike Oromoni had all hailed the kind gesture of Pondi, praying that the House of Representatives member will go a long way politically, describing him as a rare politician in Burutu Local Government.
Dignitaries present during the ceremony include Amb. Dr. Comr. Shedrack Agediga, ED, PRS, DESOPSDEC, Hon. Ebike Oromoni, PDP Chairman, Burutu Local Government Area, Barr. Roland Pereotubo Oweilaemi, former President Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) Worldwide, Chief Roland Kemefa, Comr. Emmanuel Akpule, Mr. Humphrey Oluku, Hon. Tonkiri Apu, Comr. Duncan Forcados, Hon. Adidi Preboye, Mr. Lucky Ezebiri with the host of others too numerous to mention.
