Delta State All Progressives Congress (APC) leader and 2015 governorship candidate, Olorogun O’tega Emerhor, chieftains of the party, Chief Frank Ovie Kokori, and Barr. Justine Rewane have commended President Muhammadu Buhari for nominating two Deltans for appointments into the board of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
Speaking to journalists on the appointments, Emerhor praised the President for listening to the cry of the APC in Delta State, noting that the appointments have reinvigorated members of the party in the state to work harder to reposition the party to take over Delta State come 2019.
The elated APC leader stated further that with the appointments of Engr. Samuel Adjogbe, (nominee, Executive Director Project, NDDC) Delta Central and Dr. Ogaga Ifowodo, Delta State representative, the President has given the three senatorial districts in the state a sense of belonging in the APC-led government at the centre.
Similarly, a Board of Trustee Member of the party, Chief Frank Kokori also commended President Buhari, for appointing two credible Deltans to the board of NDDC, noting that leaders of the party across the state are happy with the development.
According to him; “those who before now were in doubt about the ability of the leaders of the party in the state to attract the dividends of democracy to the state, will now have a rethink.”
On his part, Barr. Justine Rewane while commending the President, urged party faithful in the state to be patient; adding that more appointments will be given to Deltans in due course, stressing that no part of the state would be left out, because the Delta APC is one big family.
According to him; “the NDDC appointments could not have come at a better time, we are mobilising new members to register with our great party and this will energise the Delta APC to do more in our quest to take over Delta State come 2019.”
The state party chairman, Prophet Jone Erue also commended the President for the appointments, nothing that the people of Delta State are very happy, and that since the announcement of the nomination, Deltans have been trooping to register as APC members. “It has been celebration across Delta since the list came out, so I want to join other APC leaders in Delta State to commend Mr. President for appointing these great Deltans, assuring him of our total commitment to repositioning the party in Delta State and the Niger Delta region.”
