DELTA State House of Assembly member-elect from Ughelli North State Constituency II, Eric Oharisi, has commended the people of Ughelli for voting massively for him during the April 11 election.

Oharisi, who made this statement after receiving his certificate of return, reassured the people of Ughelli North Constituency II that he will fulfill his electioneering promises, adding that he as a son of the royal family cannot afford to disappoint his people.

He noted that his supporters who trooped out en mass to vote for him under the rain and sun would further spur him to even perform more than expected.

Oharisi, who until his election was the Delta State Deputy Chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), also thanked his union members for making him proud during the poll.

He expressed delight at the maturity displayed during the election by union members, promising to adequately honour them with credible representation in the House of Assembly.

He called for maximum support for Senator Ifeanyi Okowa when he assumes duty as Governor on May 29. Oharisi said with all hands on deck in support of Okowa-led government, Delta State would be transformed to a mini London, much better than every other state in Nigeria.

Oharisi noted that his ‘’thank you’’ message will not be complete without appreciating his fathers, political leaders and elders who stood firmly for him to achieve success, praying God to give them the opportunity to live long and reap the fruits of their labour.
