Delta
Abuja, Sept. 12,2021, Mr Anthony Ndanenu, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that the party despite being in the opposition, is making a serious inroad to take over the  governance of the state come 2023.
He said this on Sunday in Abuja while reacting to the just concluded Isoko South Constituency 1. House of Assembly bye-election of the state in an interview with newsatlarge.
The APC chieftain said the marginal win of the PDP in the election showed that it was loosing popularity in the state, adding that the party and its members should therefore not rejoice over the development.
Ndanenu said it was only feather weight politicians, and a few apologists of the opposition PDP that would still believe that the APC had no place in Delta.
According to him, the game of politics is a game of numbers which required absolute control of the majority with high level of political influence.
He added that the PDP should instead of celebrating its marginal win in the election, think of ways of advancing its popularity in the state if it must remain relevant in the scheme of things.
Ndanenu said serious minded PDP members should be in sober reflection, reflecting on the outcome of the election and mourning over its declining popularity.
“They should be mourning over the imminent extinction of their once upon a time dominant party in Delta that used to declare election results in millions, but now struggling to get votes at unit levels.
“A little above one hundred votes at the Ward levels and a few thousands in the total Local Government Area election result is not a thing to rejoice about or celebrated.
” This, is especially after all manner of inducements and intimidation of opposition party members.
“What the just concluded  Bye-election shows is that APC has made serious inroad in Delta politics, however, there is need for all hands to be on deck,” Ndanenu advised.
He stressed that with more work and commitment of party members, the APC would be able to finally dislodge the PDP in Delta come 2023.
NAN reports that the PDP won the Delta Isoko South Constituency 1. House of Assembly bye-election.
The election held on Sept. 11, across five Wards in the constituency, was meant to fill the vacant seat occasioned by the death of the member representing the constituency in the state’s legislative arm, Mr Kenneth Ogba.

The Returning Officer of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Christopher Onosemuode,while announcing the election results, said the candidate of the PDP, Mr Ovuakpoye Evivie, polled 6,907 votes to win the poll.(https://newsatlarge.ng)
