Angry youths in Delta North Senatorial District on Tuesday, December 6, disrupted the campaign train of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) House of Representatives member, Ndudi Elumelu.

According to them, the politicians only makes fake political promises.

The aggrieved youths in their numbers stopped Elumelu and his team from accessing the community, stating that the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives had failure to address community challenges as a lawmaker over the years.

However, it took the effort of the PDP senatorial candidate, Ned Nwoko, to calm the youths.

Listening to Nwoko, the youths lamented the difficulties the community had faced over the years.

Speaking on behalf of the group, the youth leader said the community is tired of fake promises from politicians.

“Since 1999, PDP had been coming here to campaign but after elections they never remember Oko community. No road, no electricity among others social amenities.

“We have been voting for this PDP in all elections but nothing to show for it. Elumelu had been coming and making fake promises.

“And he is coming again to deceive us for fourth time, that’s our anger and we don’t want such promises again,” the youth leader said.

The youths however, compelled Elumelu and others to go to the community shrine for an oath that they will address the community’s plight, especially the roads, if elected.

Meanwhile, Nwoko assured the community that roads from Oko to Ndokwa East all the way through Isoko to Warri would be done.

Nwoko also promised to address the flooding menace that had been ravaging the community on yearly basis.
