Your Excellency Sir,

We the people of Isaba Kingdom in Warri South-West Local Government Area, sincerely commend you for your Developmental strides in all parts of the state, your projects are visible, audible, laudable and tangible. On this premise, We gladly pass a vote of confidence on you, Our governor as we reaffirm our support for the M.O.R.E. Agenda.

Most importantly, we wish to draw your Excellency’s attention to our special appeal as a kingdom that believe in the tennets of dialogue, peace and inclusive Democracy.

We are deeply pained that we have been marginalized and neglected politically for far too long.

We were neglected in terms of appointments of our sons into key Positions including elective positions since the creation of the LGA since 1996.

Despite our unwavering resolve, loyalty and support to the People’s Democratic party, our household party, we are yet to be given our rightfully deserved place in the State’s political appointments and elective positions.

We have been neglected in the appointment of Commissioners, Delta State Oil Producing Area Development Commission; Chairmanship, DG’s and members of statutory Boards etc.

This plea and cry to Save our Ward 2 is pursuant to the upcoming Local Government Election in the State.
Isaba people are humbly appealing to be allowed to produce the Warri-South-West Local Government chairman in the coming council elections.

We are also calling on leaders who could plead on our behalf to our listening governor, hence we deemed it fit to channel this appeal through His Excellency, Former Governor of Delta State.

Senator(Dr) Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa and the State’s Party Chairman, Olorogun Barr. Kingsley Esiso to please look into our pleadings critically and consider an Isaba son for the LGA Chairman position.

The Warri South-West Local Government Area is comprised of two(2) ethnic groups, the Ijaws of Gbaramatu House, Ogbe-Ijoh and Isaba House; the Itsekiris of Ugborodo and Benin River House.

The level of lopsidedness in the political formation since the inception of Warri South-west Local Government Council since 1996 is pathetic, unbearable and should be addressed urgently so that we are not edged out in the scheme of things.

Even before the creation of Warri-South-west Local Government Council Area in 1996, Isaba ward as far back as in 1970’s has been denied political appointment and relevant elective offices.

Your Excellency sir, the table below shows the marginalization done on the people of Isaba ward in Warri South-west Local Government Area of Delta State.

Sir, From the above analysis, the Isaba kingdom have not benefited enough from the political arrangment in Warri South-west local government area of Delta State.

The Isaba people have been in full participation in the politics of Delta State, working for the party and always delivering complete votes for the Peoples Democratic Party (P.D.P) since democracy came into existence in 1999.

Your Excellency sir, till date, there is no other party in Isaba ward, except PDP the ruling party of Delta State.

Therefore we, the people of Isaba kingdom, solicit the cooperation of this administration of Delta state, ably led by His Excellency, Chief (Elder) Sheriff Oborevwori and his deputy to vividly look into our plight and correct this imbalance bedeviling Isaba people by making an Isaba person the Chairman of Warri South-West Local Government area.

Your Excellency sir, we appreciate and commend you for your speedy development and your MORE agenda in the State.

Congratulations to implementing your MORE Agenda and one year in office sir.

Comrade Edwin Doufa.
Central Chairman

Mr. Obadiah Wareseimere
Secretary General
For and on behalf of Isaba kingdom.
