Kwale—Delta community cries out over exclusion in government Ukwuani Development Forum, UDF, has asked Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State and Delta State Independent Electoral Commission, DSIEC, to conduct a by-election in Ezhionum to elect a new Councillor to replace Mr. Emmanuel Atuma, who died in a motor accident while returning from work.
In a release after an extraordinary general meeting in Ezhionum, Ukwuani Local Government Area of Delta State, the group, in conjunction with HRM R.C. Osanwuta, the Ezhie of Ezhionum Kingdom and Ezhionum Development Association, EDA, wondered why the government of the day, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, would exclude the community in the scheme of things after giving the party massive support in the April 2015 general elections.
They expressed displeasure over alleged high level of marginalisation of the kingdom by the relevant authorities, saying since the demise of Atuma, the people of Ezhionum Kingdom have been excluded in the scheme of things as they no longer have a voice or representation in the legislative arm for over one year.
