Thank You Ika South, Says Okunbor, APGA House Assembly Candidate

May 6, 2023


My determination to run for the position of Delta State House of Assembly to represent the good people of Ika South was driven by the ideas of the new Ika South vision. As a citizen who cares deeply about my constituency, I felt a genuine commitment to bring about the change we need to see in our beloved nation. Sacrificing my time, business, and funds was a small price to pay for the opportunity to contribute to this change.

Over the months, weeks, and days leading up to the election, I held intense meetings, consultations, rallies, campaigns, and visits to community chiefs and kings, etc. The support I received from all those who stood by me through this nerve-racking and exhausting exercise was invaluable. I could not have managed without them. Despite not winning the ticket to the House of Assembly as of today, I feel deeply appreciative and indebted to everyone who sacrificed their funds, time, skills, and energy to support my campaign. My prayer is that God, whose grace and mercy can never be outdone, will open His floodgates of blessings upon you all your families, and your enterprises.

I can not forget the dedication of the party members who traveled through endless days and nights all around the Ika South Constituency, knocking on doors, meeting people, and spreading the word. I know that there is no way I can repay them for all their efforts, but I firmly believe that the time for payback will come as long as we do not give up.

The media team, both here and abroad, and all those who worked behind the scenes to make this campaign a success also deserve a special mention. They stuck their necks out for me at various villages we visited, ensured doors were open as and when due, and made sure that our message reached far and wide. I pray that their efforts will never go unrewarded by God Himself.

To all those who supported me with funds;-my diaspora friends great men and others, primary, secondary, and higher institutions friends, and those everyday people who just loved me and decided to be counted by putting in their widow’s mite. Other friends of Okunbor (OJ Best) contributors, and many others too numerous to mention – your invaluable contributions kept me on the campaign trail. I can never forget the risk you took for me, and I offer my warmest gratitude.
Finally, the one we call the parliament, people generally, and my immediate family, you guys are truly what family should be you were all rock solid.

Although the Okunbor (OJ Best) for House of Assembly Campaign team did not expect the elections proper to end this way. It is what it is, we will continue to forge ahead, hoping for the expected outcome. we must continue to hope for a better Ika South, Delta, and Nigeria of our dreams where the ideals of justice, righteousness, and truth will be upheld. As I express my gratitude at this time, I call upon everyone to continue to pray for the future of Ika South, Delta, and Nigeria as we press on toward establishing a state and country where our aspirations can be fulfilled.

Thank you all for your support, and may God continue to bless you all.

Comr. Okunbor Johnson Onaiwu, Delta State House of Assembly candidate for APGA in Ika South Constituency in the just concluded 2023 State Assembly Election.
