The political suffering of ward 11 in Ethiope East local government area from 1999 till date is a call for equity and justice, Ethiope East comprises of eleven federal wards and 20 state wards, from birth of peoples democratic party PDP till date the ward 11 which is Isiokolo has not benefited anything politically, Chief James Onanefe Ibori was a Governor for eight years and throughout his administration in office, nobody was appointed from the Isiokolo ward 11, while other wards like 3 to 5 got appointments each.
Statistically, let take from Abraka ward 1, where Chief Judith Enamuotor was a first information commissioner, then in Abraka ward 2, Dr Kings, a former PDP Chairman and Chief Evans Iwurie got appointment, in the same Abraka ward 3, Chief Ben Odjugo was a Caretaker Committee Chairman, while Chief Sunday Onoriode was a Caretaker Committee Chairman, which subsequently he was elected as PDP State Organizing Secretary till date.
Then in Okpara Inland ward 4, Chief Love Ojakovo was a finance commissioner, and in Ovu ward 5, Chief Loveth ldisi was elected a Honourable member, Federal House of Reps, and also late Chief Efe Akpobi was appointed as SUBEB Chairman, In Kokori ward 6, Chief Hon. Sunny Akpordiogaga Emeyesi was House of Assembly member for 12 years and subsequently another four (4) years as House of Reps.
Going forward, we also have Chief (Barr) Mrs Mary lyasere was a commissioner, Chief George Orogun commissioner, Chief Tony Oboroh elected local government council Chairman all from ward 7, and in Okpara waterside ward 8, Chief Lucky was a Chairman Ethiope East and Chief Alex lmara was member Delta State Post Primary Education Board, then in Eku ward 9, late Chief Ochuko Unuagba was a Chairman of Ethiope East local government area for two terms, that’s 6 years and one year of transition committee.
Thereafter, in Egbo ward 10, Chief Faith Majemite is the outgoing council Chairman who has served for two terms and Chief Soap Enakirakpor is appointed as Executive Assistant to the Governor. However, in Isiokolo ward 11, there is NO APPOINTMENT, NONE ELECTED OFFICER since 1999 of our Democratic Dispensation till date, “What a cast of spell, doubted for greatness”, though determined to be deliver from every injustice, oppression and neglects.
Therefore, from the above critical and well articulated political indexes and summation, the good people of Isiokolo ward 11, have resolved and appeal to the constituted authority for fairness, peace, justice and equity, as all inhabitants are bearer of the green environment. So Isiokolo Ward 11 of Ethiope East federal ward should be given the opportunity to produce the next council Chairman for equity, fairness, peace and justice.
