I will reclaim my stolen mandate from Okowa —Ogboru
The governorship candidate of the All Progressive Congress, Chief Great Ogboru, on Wednesday claimed that his mandate was stolen by Ifeanyi Okowa of the Peoples Democratic Party.
He said he would soon reclaim the mandate.
Ogboru spoke at a press conference in his Abraka country home, in the Ethiope East Local Government Area of the state.
He assured the people of the state that he would reclaim the mandate.
He said, “As we all have seen, the ruling party in the state was not prepared for the election and they made it impossible for 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 March 9, 2019, and we believe that with God 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 where 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.”
