Governorship election: Ogboru will become governor of Delta State by all means-Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has said that Delta will by Saturday’s governorship election become an All Progressives Congress (APC) state.

He said “by the grace of God” Great Ogboru, who is the APC governorship candidate in the state, will defeat incumbent Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Buhari stated this at the PTI Conference Centre, Effurun, Uvwie council area of the state, when he addressed a congregation of the party’s stakeholders and other stakeholders of the state, including traditional rulers, during his visit to the state on Monday.

Chief Great Ogboru has contested the governorship election in the state several time, under different platforms, and has always lost against the PDP.

The President, who was represented by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, said the achievements of the party in the state during the presidential and National Assembly elections was a pointer that the state is going to become an APC state after Saturday election.

“What happened last Saturday is a great victory for us but it is only the beginning because the completion of that victory is going to come by the grace of God on Saturday March 9, 2019 when we vote in our own governor, Great Ogboru, who will by the grace of God be a governor from that very day.

“It is very clear to everybody and to the world that Delta State can never be the same again.

“It’s impossible for Delta State to go back after what happened on Saturday. As the APC chairman said, we all watched to see what will happen in Delta state. Delta state was a focus of all of our attention.

“Just as the chairman has said, we have seen a Delta state where the PDP was unable to recall a vote of 1.2 million.

“We wanted to see what way they can be curtailed, but you all proved that ‘you can tell a lie for a thousand years, but one day the truth will catch up’ and the truth caught up with them last Saturday.

“That truth will manifest itself fully this Saturday when we hold the next election. Delta state has proved a very important point that this state is ready for change to the next level.

“The other reason why it is so important for us to ensure that Delta State become an APC state has been pointed out. The social investment programme that we put in place, it is only APC governor that can implement such programmes faithfully.

“We believe that once we are able to have an APC governor such programmes will be implemented,” he said.

Leaders of the party at the event included Ogboru, Minister of State of Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachikwu, former governor of the state, Emmanuel Uduaghan, Olorogun O’tega Emerhor and Senator Ovie Omo-Agege.
