The Ward-to-Ward campaign train of the Peoples Democratic Party in Delta North Senatorial District on Tuesday was prevented by angry youths of Oko Community who said the politicians only make fake political promises.
The youths in their numbers prevented especially the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, Ndudi Elumelu, from entering the community over failure to address community challenges as a lawmaker over the years.
It took the effort of the senatorial candidate, Ned Nwoko, after hours to calm the nerves of unrepentant youths.
The youths who reluctantly listened to Nwoko lamented the difficulties the community had faced over the yrars.
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.
