Chief Johnny Drums Support for Joel-Onowakpo, Says it’s Isoko’s Turn to Produce Delta South Senator

A top leader of the Ijaw ethnic group and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Michael Johnny has said the Isoko ethnic group should be allowed to produce the next Senator representing Delta South Senatorial district.

Chief Johnny stated this weekend while addressing the people of Ogbinbiri, Ogbudugbudu, Tsekelewu, Opuama, Gbokoda, Ebrohimi and Eghoro in Warri North Local Government Area of Delta State at the campaign rally of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for Delta South Senatorial District Joel-Onowakpo Thomas.

According to the Ijaw leader, the Isoko people have supported Ijaw for Deputy Governor for eight years and Senator for five terms of 20 years as well as supported Itsekiri for Governor for two terms of eight years, adding that it was only fair, just and equitable for other ethnic groups in Delta South to support Isoko for the Senatorial position in 2023.

Chief Johnny described Joel-Onowakpo as a sincere man who will work fervently for the development of Delta South. He urged Ijaw and Itsekiri nations to support him to boost development and reposition the zone for greatness.

“Isoko has always supported Ijaw and Itsekiri. Ijaw has been Deputy Governor for eight years and Senator for 20 years. Itsekiri also in Delta South has been Governor for 8 years. Only the Isoko has been marginalised. Now it is time for us to support Isoko for Senate.
