Hilda Dokubo to run for House of Reps seat

Actress Hilda Dokubo has declared interest in representing Asalga/Akulga federal constituency in the House of Representatives under Labour Party.

The 52-year-old made the announcement on her social media platforms on Wednesday.

“My dear people, I write to apply. Yours OBIdiently,” she simply wrote.

Hilda has continued to intensify her support for Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi.

On August 27, she led thousands of youths in Port Harcourt, Rivers State on a two million man-march for Obi.

The actress and others gathered at the Oil Mill Junction along Aba Road, from where they marched to Isaac Boro Park in Mile one, wearing branded Labour Party T-shirts while dancing in a carnival like atmosphere.

Speaking at the rally, Hilda Dokubo lamented the rising cost of living across the country, stressing that it was time for the youths to over.

She said: “Please no one should remind us of the pains of the last seven plus years! We will be better if we rid ourselves of the inequality, fear, discrimination and injustice not to think of the acute corruption that this administration has plagued us with. It is time to #takenaijaback #cleanupnaija #rebuildnaija.”

A graduate of the University of Port Harcourt, Hilda served as special adviser on youth affairs to Peter Odili, a former governor of Rivers State.
