Nigerian Omenuwoma Josiah turned down the position of Special Assistant on Youth Mobilization for Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa.
Josiah revealed this in a statement made available to the media, stating that his choice gave him the chance to publicly support Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate (LP).
The Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) vice presidential and presidential candidates are Okowa and Atiku Abubakar, respectively.
Although he acknowledged that he had already pledged his allegiance to the “ObiDient” movement, the man appreciated the Governor for considering him for the position.

“I sincerely wish to thank Is Excellency Sen. Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa to have graciously offered me the opportunity to serve and I most grateful to my Caring Big Brother/Friend, Distinguished Leader, My great Supporter and Father to have recommend me, influenced and facilitated the appointment, “Big Bros you don too show me love wen I no fit forget” It’s unfortunate the came at this time that I have actively engaged and Committed myself to the OBIDIENT Movement.
