All Progressive Congress, (APC) candidate for Burutu Federal Constituency, Delta State, Mr. Karona Etonye has said it is no more Uhuru for People’s Democratic Party (PDP) legislative candidates in Burutu and indeed Delta South
According to him” no opposition party has ever won a legislative seat both at the Federal or State levels since the return of Democracy in 1999. However, the narratives has changed in the area since the birth of APC which is now very strong and is now at par with PDP. In the past, once you are given the PDP ticket you are already a winner, you just go and sleep but it’s not so today,” Etonye maintained.
He said this during his formal Flag off campaign/rally at Okpokunu and Tuomo wards in Burutu local government area, yesterday, that the APC was well positioned to win the elections in Burutu Federal Constituency, adding that the people were tired of the poor representation by the PDP.
Etonye who was a former Executive Secretary, Burutu Local Education Authority, said, “I’m a grassroot person, born and raised here, a true son of the soil. When I was at the LEA I conducted recruitment for 380 teachers, and till date nobody could question that process because it was the most transparent in the LEA history.
“You can only rig elections where the party and its candidate are popular, but as we speak APC and PDP is at par nobody can claim to be more popular than the other. So, it is now up to the electorates and I am very popular and more on ground than my opponent. So, I am very confident I will win the elections.”
