Former Manager Communications to ex-governor Emmanuel Uduaghan of Delta State, Mr. Paul Odili has been declared winner of the All Progressives Congress (APC) primary election for Ndokwa Federal Constituency.
Declaring the results of the election which held at Kwale in Ndokwa West Local Government Area, the Returning Officer, Alhaji Idris said the total votes cast was 367. Idris said Mr. Odili polled the highest vote of 182 to defeat Azuka Agbidi and Chinedu Egbenumolisa who polled 101 and 77 votes respectively, adding that 04 votes were voided.
The Returning Officer said the election was transparent, free, fair and credible, and commended the people in the area for providing the peaceful atmosphere for the exercise.
In a brief remark, the House of Representatives hopeful appreciated the APC leaders and delegates in the constituency for the mandate given him to flag the party’s flag in the 2019 general election, assuring that he will justify the confidence by defeating the incumbent representative, Mr. Nicholas Ossai who is the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Mr. Odili also promised that if he wins the general election, the constituency will experience purposeful and adequate representation, which he claimed, has been lacking over the years.
The APC standard bearer lamented that Ndokwa nation which contributes immensely to the national treasury has been suffering from marginalization and under development due to lack of voice at the federal level to attract development and appointment to the area.
