A House of Assembly candidate in Delta State vying for the Oshimili South Constituency seat on the platform of Labour Party (LP), Mr. Taju Isichei has told his opponents in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and All Progressives Congress (APC) to prepare for defeat as he will emerge winner of the contest in 2019.
Isichei, popular called ‘Ikuku’, stated this on Friday, October 6, 2018 at the State Secretariat of Labour Party in Asaba during his affirmation as the Candidate for Oshimili South State Constituency.
In his acceptance speech, Isichei said, “The die is cast, we have known who our opponents are and I want to use this medium to send a message to them in the PDP Camp, to them in the APC camp that they have not seen it yet. They have just seen the head of the bird, they have not seen the full body. Now that the battle line is drawn, I want to say, we from Labour Party, we are telling them, enough is enough.
“For 20 years, we have bared PDP enough. When you make a mistake for the first time, you have yourself to blame, but when you continue to make a mistake, then you should bear the consequences. Therefore, I want to beg everyone, this is the time to go back to work, I myself am going back to work and we shall be meeting very soon.
“We are telling them that, we are not in this contest for we to be settled. We are not in this contest just to get relevance, we are not in this contest to say we are alive but we are in this contest to save Oshimili south constituency from the hands of criminals, because for 20 years, all allocations given to this constituency, there is nothing on ground to show for it.”
Isichei while encouraging electorates in Oshimili South to vote out the PDP and APC candidates, harped that, “Human beings can be so wicked to one another and I want to say to the downtrodden, please, this is not time for you to sell your votes, the votes you sold four years ago, where has it taken you to? The bags of rice given to you four years ago, the two thousand, three thousand naira given to you four years, where are they today? All of us are suffering from it, enough is enough and together, I believe that we can do better. When we come together as one bunch, then I believe we can face the Mountain. Let us have the determination the people of Israel had when building the Tower of Babel, when they were determined to see God and with determination we can get there. Come February 2019, we shall be celebrating more than this. Victory is ours, the people are waiting for us.”
Filled with delight at the affirmation by his party as witnessed by his family members, supporters, INEC officials and party delegates, Mr. Taju Isichei thanked the people for believing in him and assured of his commitment to adequately deliver according to the yearnings of his people when elected.
“I want to use this opportunity to thank INEC delegation that is here to witness the Primaries today and specifically my primary for Oshimili South Local Government. I want to use this opportunity to thank those who believed to contest for the position of Oshimili South Constituency under Labour party and that have decided to step down and allow me to go and represent Oshimili South. I also want to say thank you especially to all Chairmen, Women leaders, the executives and all delegates of the eleven wards in Oshimili. I want to say that, I will not disappoint you people.”
