The senatorial candidate of the People Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo has assured the people of Bayelsa West Senatorial District a people-orientated representation when he wins the February 16th elections.

Lawrence who solicited the supports of people of Bayelsa West for all the candidates of the People Democratic Party, said the government at the center has marginalised the people of Niger Delta and underdeveloped the region, particularly Bayelsa State. He said the people of Niger Delta, particularly Bayelsans have not had fair share of the proceed of production and sales of their resources.
Lawrence who faulted the sharing formula adopted by the Nigeria Government, said as a senatorial candidate, his agenda is to advocate for Nigeria restructuring in collaboration with his other colleagues in the National Assembly, adding that it’s only with restructuring, Nigeria can work again.
His words; “we need to have a Nigeria where those producing Cocoa, Groundnut, Palm, crude oil etc will have control of whatever they are producing and then pay royalty to the federal government”. According to the PDP senatorial candidate, Lawrence, before the Niger Delta Crude oil was discovered in large quantity, every region had had control of their resources and Nigeria was working; stressing the need to restructure Nigeria.
