Aniocha/Oshimili Fed Constituency: APC’s Adingupu confident of victory
A philanthropist and businessman, Hon. Paul Adingupu, has said he is the man to beat in the House of Representatives election for Aniocha/Oshimili constituency. The All Progressives Congress (APC) stalwart who sounded highly optimistic said the main contending party in Delta State, the PDP, has lost its focus and its goodwill with the people.
According to Adingupu, his mission to the House of Representatives is to give voice to the people of Aniocha/Oshimili who he said have not been well-represented.
The APC candidate running on the theme: Restoration 2019, said he is a “courageous, trusted and compassionate” person, stressing that these character traits will see him through as he prepares to seek the mandate of his people.
“I am going to Abuja to give my people a sense of belonging to the Nigerian nation, to give them a voice Nigerian authorities cannot ignore.
“My people had been victims of selfish politicians. That era is gone. I am going for selfless service, to bring federal infrastructure to my constituency and not to serve myself.
“I have toured my constituency several times. I have listened to the people; their cry is the same. They are pained that those they sent to Abuja to attract development to our communities have forgotten what took them to Abuja in the first place. They are only after themselves and I have come to reverse this ugly trend”.
Waxing stronger and bolder, he said: “The atmosphere is super charged. PDP has lost it. The momentum is with APC and you can feel it in the streets, in the market places, everywhere. Delta is APC compliant and by 2019, the progressives through the popular will of the people will take over Delta State”
Adingupu who spearheads a non-governmental organization, the Foundation for Effective Leadership and Development (FELD), said he and his team of benevolent Deltans have been empowering the people even when they were not political office holders. He said the foundation has empowered over 23,000 Nigerians, particularly Deltans since inception, three years ago. Over N500 million has so far been committed into the programme, he said.
