In what has been described as the big declaration by political pundits, Hon. Julius Pondi, member representing Burutu Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives on Saturday formally declared his intention to return to the house come 2023. The Liberator Newspapers Worldwide can report.
A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Burutu Local Government Area, Hon. Amakama Peremobowei, youth leader of the Burutu Local Government PDP has scored Hon. Pondi high in his performance so far, stating that he remains the best House of Representatives member that has ever represented the constituency over the years.
The Burutu Local Government PDP Youth leader made the commendation at the Peemos Hotel in Warri during the declaration ceremony shortly after Hon. Pondi has presented his legislative scorecard before the Burutu Local Government PDP Working Committee, Ward Chairmen in the Local Government, delegates and other critical stakeholders of the party yesterday.
Pondi while presenting his declaration speech before the Burutu Local Government PDP leadership maintained that within the last years that he was sent by the Burutu people to represent the federal constituency, he has been able to positively affect all the eleven (11) wards in the Local Government with visible projects that will stand the test of time. He specially appreciated them for always standing by him, vowing that he will continue to owe them in high esteem.
The federal lawmaker had particularly appealed to leaders of the PDP and the delegates to reconsider him come 2023, stressing that he did not dissapoint them during the first and second tenures hence the third tenure will be much more better.
Speaking further on his performance over the years, Pondi said apart from infrastructural development across the eleven (11) wards in Burutu Local Government, he has also sponsored life changing bills like the Federal College of Fishery and Aquaculture, Federal Institute for diving Technology, Sokebolou and others.
According to him, he has moved several motions to better the lives of his people, petitions have been written for the reinstatement of unlawfully dismissed Nigerian security personnel from Burutu and several other oversight functions.
He continued that he has facilitated a lot of employments across Burutu Federal Constituency into various institutions in Nigeria, establishment of the first ever Jamb Centre in Delta riverine communities at Ogulagha as well as human capacity building programmes in the constituency ranging from ICT, fish farming, fashion and design and others too numerous to mention.
However, speaker after speaker had lauded Hon. Julius Pondi, member representing Burutu Federal Constituency for his intimidating performance so far, stressing that the federal lawmaker has truly done well.
High point of the declaration was the prayers and wonderful speeches of the PDP leaders including the party Chairman in the Local Government, Hon. Ebike Oromoni by giving him the nod to go ahead with his quest to go back to the house, stating that he has truly made the Local Government proud with his legislative sagacity.
The Liberator Newspapers Worldwide can report that the Hall in Peemos Hotel was filled to the brim as many political observers likened Pondi’s declaration as a Governorship declaration with supporters and different solidarity groups appearing from all corners.
Meanwhile, after declaring for the Burutu Local Government PDP Working Committee, delegates, ward chairmen and other critical stakeholders of the party, Hon. Pondi also declared before the Burutu Local Government Legislative Arm, a situation that also saw the councillors passing vote of confidence on him.
