Delta guber: Ogboru vows to reclaim mandate
The All Progressive Congress, APC governorship candidate in the March 9th, 2019 election, Chief Great Ovedje Ogboru, yesterday, assured Deltans of reclaiming the stolen mandate given to him, saying that the injustice done on the party will certainly be reversed.
Ogboru who gave this assurance in his Abraka country home, Ethiope East local government area of Delta state, while briefing journalists, said he was using this privilege to commend all Deltans who came out en masse to vote massively for him and all the candidates of the All Progressive Congress, APC.
Speaking further, Ogboru said, “Fellow Deltans, I want to salute all of you for the massive support you gave to me and our great party, the APC. Unfortunately, as we all have seen, the ruling party in the state was not prepared for the election and they made it impossible for the franchise of the people, the mandate of the people to be properly declared.
“I promised you a few weeks ago that we shall be in the proper arena to address the issues. We have since the past few days filed our petitions to challenge the illegalities committed by the PDP and its leaders in Delta state on the 9th of march 2019 and we believe that God being on our side, that situation will surely be reversed.
“Let me use this opportunity to tell all Deltans that hope is not lost, they should not entertain any form of fear but they should be in fervent prayers because with God all things are possible. This is one injustice that we think will not stand. And by the Grace of God, it will not stand.
“Deltans must begin to search their conscience and begin to ask themselves questions. A situation were a few communities in the riverine areas continue to determine the fate of the people of Delta state is one that should begin to make us know that something is not right in this state.
“I also want to use this opportunity to appeal to the leaders of those communities in particular; that they should rise up to the challenge of social responsible; knowing that they are living the in a committee of ethnic nationality and that this can no longer continue.
On this tribunal case, Ogboru said, “With God, all things are possible. The situation was not different when court ruled in our favour and removed former governor Uduaghan from office temporarily, with this massive rigging and the manner in which it was done, attracted attention from outside this state and I believe even God himself must be very angry.
“Delta belongs to us and not just for one person. So people cannot at will with impunity decide to plunder the state and take laws into their hands. I wish to commend the Ijaws, Istekiris, Urhobos, Isokos, Ndokwas and Aniomas for their support and urged them to keep hope alive.
