CHIEF Godwill Obielum has been endorsed by all the youth leaders of Ndokwa/Ukwuani Federal Constituency to contest for the governorship position of Delta State in 2015.

According to a communiqué signed by more than 120 youth leaders that attended a meeting at the Isumpe Hall, Utagba--Ogbe in Ndokwa West local government area of Delta State, Chief Obielum is the most acceptable Deltan to occupy the Governor's seat in 2015. Some of those who signed the communiqué include, Comrade Nzete Anslem, Comrade Nnamdi Ezechi who are the President and Secretary of Ndokwa National Youth Leaders' Forum respectively, Mr Chukwuma Emmanuel, Uwabuofu Chika, Eghor Joseph, among others.

'All aspirants for the governorship position of Delta State were carefully assessed and, in our well considered view, Chief Godwill Obielum emerged as the most acceptable candidate for our brothers and sisters in all parts of Delta State and beyond,' the youth leaders said, adding, 'the choice of Chief Obielum was based on the fact that he is a team player; more experienced in human, security and crisis management; and he sees all of Delta State as a family as he is not biased in his approach to issues.'

They added, that the choice of Chief Obielum as the candidate of all the youths in Ndokwa nation for the governorship position was not based on the fact that he will work more for Ndokwa nation but, because, he is more acceptable to Deltans.

The youth leaders emphasized, 'we will talk to our brothers, our sisters, our mothers and our fathers who are contesting for the governorship position to come together and support the people's popular choice, Chief Godwill Obielum, and avoid any action which will be against the peace and security agenda of Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan's administration,' adding that they will remain law abiding as they work to actualize their commitment towards the emergence of Chief Obielum as the next Governor of Delta State.

While pledging continual support for Governor Uduaghan's administration, the more than 120 youth leaders who signed the communiqué urged Nigerians to ensure that nobody truncates the current democracy being enjoyed in the country.

'We believe that the election time table as released by the electoral umpire, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) should guide all Nigerians and those who are interested in the affairs of Nigeria as a true indication that there will be general elections in 2015 and Nigeria will emerge stronger after the elections,' they said, asserting, 'nobody should work to truncate the 2015 general elections.'

They youth leaders added, that 'the Ndokwa youths condemn condemned the "unconscionable" kidnapping of the Chibok girls as well as the drum of war that some Nigerians are beating,' reiterating that, 'Nigeria should remain an indivisible entity and all Nigerians should rally round President Goodluck Jonathan's administration for the country to remain progressively on course.
