LG Polls: Spend ₦1bn Budgeted For DSIEC on Ayakoromo Bridge, Activist Tells Okowa

A youth leader and human activist in Burutu Local Government Area, Comrade Timi Coleman has beckoned on the governor of Delta state, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa to make good use of the ₦1 billion budgeted for the upcoming local government elections in the state.

Comrade Timi who is a chieftain of the All Progressive Congress (APC), argued that there is no point for the state government to allocate the whooping sum for the Delta State Independent Electoral Commission (DSIEC) to conduct elections that will obviously be won by the People’s Democratic Party.

I’m begging Gov Okowa appointees, his Godfather’s, Friends, family relatives to tell him not to waste #1 billion earmarked for DSIEC Election because I will not advise even my enemy to squander his or her scare resources.

I’m begging because #1b will go a long way to completing Ayakoromo Bridge project.
