He stated this on Sunday, May 13, 2018, at his private residence in Warri Delta state when he played host to Comrade Sheriff Mulade, a 2019 Delta State House of Assembly hopeful who was on a Political Consultation.
According to him, the people of Warri South West Local Government Area of Delta state are angling for a real change in the system, hence, the people are poised to go for quality representation.
In his words, “We want to put the right man at the right place, which we all know, that is the person of Comrade Sheriff Mulade. I have come to understand that we all know that we have a candidate for the House of Assembly in Delta State. He is the grassroots leadership we need to push to get there.”
Sheriff Mulade, he continued, “is not our boss. A lot of people think when they get there, they are our bosses. I, therefore, pray, plead and beg that everybody seated here to take this matter seriously because we are propagating for a change of the system as we are tired of the old order.”
Responding, Comrade Sheriff Mulade expressed to the gathering, his willingness to equitably work for the betterment of both the Ijaws and the Itsekiris as could be seen in the various committees he has so far set-up.
In a related development, Comrade Sheriff Mulade while speaking with GbaramatuVoice, among other things, hinted that he is setting up 12 different committees with different functions.
The essence of setting up these committees, he explained, is to reach out to the important persons in the race and to also put the machinery in place to achieve the desired result.
“My expectation is for the committees to deliver on their mandate and their tasks because they have been given responsibilities to reach out to whosoever they need to reach out and to put all necessary arrangements in place,” he added.
When asked what his plans were to engage other candidates vying for the same position, he responded thus;
“That is why these committees have been set up, especially the Contact and Engagement Committee. We will be engaging them, talk to them to see reasons why they need to allow us to go because we have what it takes.”
On his chances of emerging the representative of Warri South West Local Government Area, the environmentalist turned politician responded this way;
“We have the qualifications, we have the contacts, we have the influence, we have the connections to bring the desired development to our people. We have a very good manifesto for people to embrace. I will be engaging them in a brotherly and a friendly manner and we will get results from it,” he concluded.
