You should be much more grateful to God for giving you such a wonderful son. Governor Okowa is doing excellent jobs in our state. His record of achievements is second to none since the creation of the state and such feat is a thing to be proud of by every Anioma citizens.
His fantastic jobs cut across the entire State.

I am very satisfied with his record of service and we must encourage him to do more, we must give him our massive votes to empower him to do more”, he said.

Earlier, the Chairman, Delta State PDP 2019 Campaign Council, Prof Sam Oyovbaire, standing side by side with the Council’s Vice Chairman, Hon. Prince Ned Nwoko, reminded the audience that PDP had an agreement to rotate power within the three senatorial districts of the State. This he said, was due to the peculiar nature of Delta State and the need to balance power to engender equity, peace, love, even development and sense of belonging amongst the entire citizens of the State.
He also reminded the people that in 1999, His Excellency James Onanefe Ibori from Delta central senatorial district was elected Governor of Delta State. Ibori ruled for eight years and at the end of his tenure, His Excellency Governor Emmanuel Eweta Uduaghan, from Delta South Senatorial District was elected Governor of Delta State and Uduaghan also ruled for eight years.
The erudite professor maintained that equity rule demands that Governor Okowa from Delta north senatorial district should equally rule for eight years before power is shifted to Delta central senatorial district.
Prof Oyovbaire concluded his speech by charging Deltans to vote massively for Governor Okowa’s reelection for a second term to solidify the strong bond of unity, currently enjoyed by the citizens of the State.
