The said candidates were invited to outline their programmes for Isoko people.
While addressing the church leaders, Okakor said that the move was a step in the right direction, adding that it is the duty of the church to help restore lost grounds in Isoko land and move Isoko nation to its rightful place.
The PRP candidate outlined what he will do with the necessary legislative tools when elected.
He promised to influence a second House of Assembly seat in Isoko North, saying that he will also influence the use of Engineering principles to prevent further flooding in Isoko nation by constructing Dykes/Leeves and dredging rivers/water bodies in Isoko land, just as he promised to construct dams.
Stating convincingly that Amsterdam that is 2m below sea level never gets flooded because they use the right principle, while noting that Isoko that is 10m above sea level experiences massive flood.
