A whooping sum of N3 million have been placed as rewards for any of the five wards of Isoko south State Constituency that is able to produce the highest number of votes for the bye-election scheduled for Saturday September 11th 2021.
Delta State governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa made the announcement on Tuesday September 7th 2021, during the flag-off campaign at Irri Ward 11 held at Uro-Irri Primary school, in Isoko south local government area of the State.
The governor equally announced the sum of N2 million to be given to the Ward that would come second in the exercise, just as he regretted the death of Kenneth Ogba, member who represented Isoko south State Constituency 1, in the State House if Assembly.
According to the governor, “It is my prayers that no Isoko representatives will die again, may it never happen again in the name of Jesus Christ recalling that Tim Owhefere died in January and was buried.
“I have discovered that we are on ground. There is one party that they call APC, that are flexing muscles when we campaigned in Isoko north but when we started the process of campaign, we didn’t see them again.
“At the end of the election, PDP scored 29, 000 votes while APC scored 2000 votes. Then I asked where are they? Everybody should bring their Permanent Voters Card (PVC). They can’t rig the election because IME. is coming with an accreditation system.
“They will check your thumb print and they will also check your passport whether it is truly you before you can vote. The last time we came to Isoko, it was 5/5. So, this time, we are going to give prize. The youths, men and women should get ready because we want to hear that result.
“This time, it is only five wards, so we will give prize for the first two only out of the five. So, let every ward struggle on who will take the prize.
