Eleme Needs Vibrant Representation – Waite


A House of Assembly aspirant for Eleme State Constituency, Comrade Bellor Waite says the area needs a more vibrant and responsive represensation come 2019.
Comrade Waite made the assertion during the weekend as he made public his plans to contest the House of Assembly seat under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party )PDP) in next year’s elections.
He said, “Eleme needs a vibrant and effective representation, and as far as “I am concerned we don’t have such personality in the House”.
Comrade Waite who is a youth leader stated that after due consultation with his people, he has decided to aspire for assembly seat in order to charge the fortunes of his people.
He recalled that over the year, the area has not witnessed any visible development despite the presence of multinationals, and other oil producing firms, as he blamed the situation on poor legislation.
“Eleme needs infrastructure and human capital development and by the Grace of God if I am there, I will join forces with the council chairman to improve on the human resource in the area”, Waite promised.
Commenting on his plans for the youths, the PDP House of Assembly aspirant disclosed that he would float a special scholarship scheme that will help in giving young persons opportunity to further their academic pursuits.
Waite dismissed claims that the area is facing huge security challenges, emphasising that security problem is not peculiar to Eleme alone but is a national phenomenon.
Nevertheless, he promised that if he is voted to represent the area in the Assembly, he will join forces with the governor, and local government authority to beef up security, but reasoned that most of the challenges are poverty induced.
“Our people need jobs, and that is why if I am voted to represent them we will compel the companies to improve on their corporate social responsibility,” he declared.
He dismissed claims that the PDP is divided in Eleme, stating that the leader still remains Senator Olaka Wogu and supported by other big rigs like Chief Ejoor, whom he said is his motivator into politics.
