“Aniocha South is made of three distinctive Clans; Ogwashi, Ubulu and Nsukwa. But presently Nsukwa Clan has been completely shortchanged and emasculated despite working so hard to deliver PDP in the last elections despite the incursion of Labour Party.

“We have written petition to the leadership of PDP both at the local government and state level to address the imbalance but we have not heard from them.

“We also wrote petition to Governor Sheriff Oborevwori over the matter but yet to hear from him, that is why we decided to speak to journalists to ensure that the governor hear our cry.

“We are one PDP family, supported the party even more than other clans especially in this 2023 election but we have not enjoy the dividend of democracy since the beginning despite voting massively to the party.

“The three Clans used to share the three offices; House of Assembly, Commissioner and Chairmanship slots in no special order.

“As we speak, Ubulu-Uku is holding commissioner and chairmanship slots while Ogwashi-Uku is holding House of Assembly seat.

“We calling on the governor who is a product of zoing and power rotation Delta PDP has been known since the return of democracy in 1999, to zone Chairmanship slot to Nsukwa.
