“This electioneering period heralds the end of a dispensation and the beginning of another. Ika North East must get it right by choosing the right candidate to be their representative, and it is our responsibility in Ika North East APC to propagate our message of hope, trust, brotherhood and new beginnings.

“We must rally round our brothers, friends, family members far and wide towards the mission of the moment.
“Ika North East Constituency exists in Delta State alongside other local government areas, as well as being one part of the Ika Federal Constituency, therefore we must work towards APC winning not just Ika North East, but Ika South and other constituencies in Delta State.
“From the Governorship to the National Assembly and Presidential Elections, we must take our campaigns to every part of the state in solidarity with the coming change that we desire.
“Together we will do big things, and I promise to do my best to not let you all down or betray your trust”.
