By Miracle Enuji

In pursuant of his aspiration to represent the people of Ndokwa East Constituency at the Delta State House of Assembly come 2019, Engr. Philip Ugbomah has officially made his intentions known to the public with the unveiling of his Manifesto christened, ‘Let’s Do The Work’.

Ugbomah who on Thursday, June 14, 2018 showcased his programmes and prospects for the people of Ndokwa East to Journalists in the State Capital, Asaba, said his ambition is geared towards re-engineering the fortunes of the people of Ndokwa East Local Government which has not been harnessed by its past elected officials and representatives.

The House of Assembly hopeful announced; “I want to make it public of my intentions to put myself forward, first for selection as it concerns the primaries and onward deed for the election proper to represent the good people of Ndokwa East Constituency at the State House of Assembly.”

The Not Too Young To Run advocate who seeks to represent his people under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), first gave a shot at his aspiration in 2014 where he lost out at the party’s primaries but however, not deterred by it, said he is very confident to clinch the party’s ticket this time.

“In 2014 when it was so glaring that one could do things at that mainstream, I attempted to run. We made attempt, we didn’t win in the primaries of 2014. Again, we went back to prepare ourselves holistically, mending edges with the political power houses, being on ground to super impose what the actual reality are and what the fiction of loyalty as it concerns heavyweights. Now we know that we are ready, our people are in a sun sit to make sure that there is a difference to representation.

“It is actually to our advantage, in tandem to the norms and what we have always believed as it concerns politics. We have hanged on for a very long time, we have worked, we have followed, we have experienced the good works of what those that have come before us have done as it concerns representing us particularly for the House of Assembly at the State level in my local government. Though so much has been done, I give credence and kudos to those that have come before me, they have done to the best of their knowledge but I know that, because these days money has failed in politics and we require to put the right pegs in the right holes.” Ugbomah said.

While decrying the huge absence of basic infrastructures and under-development of Ndokwa East, Ugbomah stated that his aspiration is to restore the lost glory and fortunes of the Oil Rich area disclosing that the people have chosen him for the restoration mandate of the Constituency.

“Reflecting on where Ndokwa East is today as it concerns at our challenges and needs, it basically goes to the major absence of infrastructures. From indices and statistics, one of the most backward local government as it concerns road networks is Ndokwa East. 92% of the 22 clans in Ndokwa East LGA cannot be accessed by road networks as it stands now. Taking cognizance of our occupation, we are into agro-business; we are predominantly fish farmers, plantain, yam and cassava farmers. Our parents are farmers at the hinterlands where we all grew up from, we have always had the difficulty of accessing the urban areas with our farm produce and that actually have been the complain.”

“We as a people; myself, the women, the youths, the elders, we have all complained that if a saviour could come and we all sat down, young ready-to-work Ndokwa Easterners, able and learned youths, and we thought of something, how to do we get to a place of solution as it concerns these challenges that we have had and they beckoned on me.”

Speaking on his Manifesto, Engr. Ugbomah stressed that his candidacy as anchored on, ‘Let’s Do the Work’, is a movement that is focused on, re-engineering the lost fortunes of Ndokwa East. “I believe at the moment, we need the youths because you need to be forceful and our claims are so much that it will take more than just a constituency project or a section of the budget being geared to our places or our villages if we must get the actual solutions to the problems besetting us.”

“Ndokwa East has the largest Gas concentration in Nigeria and you have alot of multinational there, so we actually have the solutions to our problems but we need somebody that can represent us, to put these things together and source for these solutions as it concerns our common complaints. Being a civil engineer and a practicing one, someone who has built himself from nothing to where we are today, I have seen the need.”

“So we as a movement, the ‘Do the Work Campaign Movement’ have put our heads together that, it is possible to put up somebody that has the knowledge of the area and haven practiced within the 15 clans when the opportunity to do some of this jobs as it concerns DESOPADEC and others, I think I have the best knowledge as it concerns the peculiarities of these villages and the individuals. I have first class knowledge of what our problems are and I have the solutions.That is why I have made myself ready to be selected and be elected.”
