“Their overwhelming support is an emphatic endorsement of my M.O.R.E agenda, which seeks to keep Delta State ahead in all aspects of social and economic wellbeing. The broad spectrum of the voting pattern is very reassuring, and consistent with my pan Delta disposition”, he stated.
He expressed gratitude to the State Governor, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa for providing a level playing field for all aspirants adding “Indeed, Governor Okowa has once again solidified his reputation as a model democrat.”
“It is on record that under his administration, party primaries in the State have been competitive, free, fair, and transparent, a wholesome departure from what it was before his coming in 2015. Thank you, Your Excellency, for being a torchbearer”.
For a chieftain of the party in the state, Chief Sunny Onuesoke, said the Chief Oborevwori is the best candidate that will clinch the seat for PDP in 2023.
