Delta South Senatorial District in Delta State, South South Nigeria, covers eight local governments: Bomadi, Burutu, Isoko North, Isoko South, Patani, Warri North, Warri South and Warri South-West.
The zone is predominantly an oil rich area of Delta State where the large chunk of the oil in the State is found thereby making this Senatorial District very strategic oil producing community.
It is worthy to note that an illustrious son of this Senatorial District, a man who has paid his dues in the state had volunteered to hearken to the voice of his people to serve this Senatorial District in the new dispensation.
Though a man of humble disposition, this quintessential homosaipen rose from nothing to something by dint of hardwork, resilience and by God’s grace and glory in his life.
It is one thing to aspire to represent one,s people, it is another thing to be home and dry with the needs of the people for quality representation, because you cannot give what you don’t have. There must be genuine concern and compassion for the people, their challenges and expectations.
Looking at the pedigree of Hon Diden Michael, popularly known as Ejele, you will agree with me that he is the right and best man to represent the good people of Delta South Senatorial District in the Hallowed chamber come June, 2023.
His emergence in the primary election for the Senatorial seat of the Peoples Democratic party, PDP for the February 2023 Senatorial election conducted on May 23rd 2022 for Delta South Senatorial District was not by mere fluke, rather it was providential.

He was able to turn DESOPADEC around with meaningful and impactful projects that would continue to stand the test of time in those communities where the projects are cited.
It is on record that Hon Diden founded a political movement in Delta State alongside with some eminent Deltans known as the Delta Political Vanguard, DPV.
Even the Delta State governor, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa attested to the invaluable role played by the DPV under the leadership of Hon Diden in the realization of his governorship ambition in 2015 as well as his re-election in 2019. Governor Okowa disclosed this in his congratulatory message to this worthy son of Delta State during his 57th birthday anniversary.
Hon Diden is an ordained Evangelist, very conversant with the pulpit. He is the founder and General Overseer of Mega Praise Ministry International, with headquarters in Sapele , Delta State.
The facts remains that Hon Diden has been a successful man in all ramifications despite all odds;he is an achiever and has fared well in all the appointments he held serving the state. He is a rare gem and his type is uncommon.
