Among emerging young Isoko politicians of substance, intelligence, incredible acumen and unrivalled patriotism is the Special Assistant to the Delta State Governor on DESOPADEC matters and a former Isoko South Local Government Chairmanship aspirant in the March 6, Delta State Local Government elections, Hon. Chief Prosper Iwoma Edo, Omonotomo of Igbide Kingdom.
Young, vibrant, vision driven and energetic, Prosper Edo is an emerging political sensation who is passionate about the empowerment of Isoko youths.
A mentee and political disciple of Bashorun Askia Ogieh, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of DESOPADEC, a master strategist and the godfather of Isoko politics, Prosper Edo seems to be cast in the same mould like his mentor, who belongs to the rare class of politicians who are in politics to impact positively on the lives of his people.
Over the years, Hon. Chief Prosper Edo, founder of Prosper Edo Empowerment Programme and Omonotomo Political Forum has become a formidable political machinery with tentacles beyond his immediate constituency. His political clout cuts across Isoko South Local Government Area and extends to the state. He enjoys a rock-solid political base in his immediate constituency as well as vast goodwill from power brokers across the state.
He is a committed and patriotic party man who is regarded by most leaders as reliable and imbued with a strong sense of duty.
A grassroots leader with vision, he inspires people and mobilizes them for a better society.
Although I am not a prophet or seer who can predict what will happen tomorrow with certainty, but from all indications it appears Hon. Prosper Iwoma Edo is destined for something even greater than his current assignment going by the way he has been building bridges here are there. He is certainly one politician who is emerging as a significant talent and possible contender for influence in 2023 and beyond.
