Delta State Commissioner for Environment, Chief Godspower Asiuwhu, has assured youths across the state of percentage increase in political appointments of youths in 2023.

The commissioner gave this assurance in Asaba when members of ‘More for Delta Youth Project’ paid him a courtesy visit to intimate him on their proposed unique campaign strategies.

Chief Asiuwhu advised the youths to be up and doing, bearing in mind the interest of the PDP as a party at heart.

He encouraged them to follow the footstep of Sen. (Dr) Ifeanyi Okowa, Governor of Delta State, by being calm and law abiding.

The commissioner maintained that the group should avoid using negative comments on the social media, especially now that the case of the group’s principal was in court.

“PDP belongs to everybody. So, I will advise that we all should portray where we belong, know the things you post on social media and remember when a case is in court, we are not allowed to talk about it,” Chief Asiuwhu stated.

He stressed that even in the face of insult from those not supporting their interest, they should be calm, bearing in mind that there would not be permanent enemy or friend in politics.

He further encouraged the group that PDP was a party that no opposition could beat in the state and all should work hard to maintain the status quo.

Asiuwhu used the medium to thank the group for their effort so far in supporting the governorship candidate of the party, especially the 1,000 man walk for Sheriff and the Interdenominational Retreat, held at Ughelli recently.

‘‘I sincerely believe that you people have already recorded success for reaching out to wards and units and I promise to bring up your names in any political gathering that I find myself,” he said.

Earlier, the Director General of the group, Mr Fred Sheriff Oborevwori, represented by his deputy, Amb. Ugaga Enarise, intimated the commissioner that the group came together to work for the success of PDP in the forthcoming elections.

In his words “as young people, we will not wait to be mobilised into vehicles and taken to open fields to stand in the sun for hours and be given a token for campaigns.

“So, we have decided to be part of the making process of who governs us.”

They also informed the commissioner of the various efforts the group had carried out so far to ensure the success of Sheriff Oborevwori come 2023 as the governor of Delta State.

“We have shown our solidarity for our principal by organising the 1,000 youth solidarity walk which turned out to be 3,000 without asking for a dime and we also backed it up with prayers through an interdenominational retreat, held at Ughelli,” Amb. Enarise said.

Amb. Enarise pleaded with the commissioner to assist them financially to enable them host youths across the state to enlighten them on the need to vote for their principal, instead of involving themselves in violence during elections.

“PDP is the vehicle to enthrone the next government and you have been an chairman and now a commissioner. You are a critical stakeholder in the struggle,” he stated.

They used the ocassion to congratulate the commissioner on his well-deserved appointment, pointing out his track record since he stepped into politics.
