A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Delta State Olorogun Fred Majemite has re-emphases the position of Urhobos PDP leaders’ decision to support Gov Ifeanyi Okowa for his second term bid come 2019.
Majemite stated this at his residence in Asaba when he played host to the Executive Assistant on Communication to His Excellency the Governor of Delta State, Dr (Barrister) Fred Latimore Oghenesivbe.
He said the Urhobo 2019 agenda is to give the governor full support for the sake of equity and the enviable performance of the Okowa administration, especially for fulfilling his electoral promises to Urhobo nation and to the good people of Delta State.
“The governor gave us the slots of Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Finance Commissioner, Commerce and Industry Commissioner, DESOPADEC MD, Works Commissioner, Special Advisers, Executives Assistants and several others. We no longer have excuses in terms of equitable distribution of development and political appointments. The governor is a promise keeper and we are pleased.
“PDP Delta Central will not present governorship aspirants in 2019, rather we shall massively mobilize our people and Okowa shall be our concensus principal and candidate. It’s a done deal. Chief James Ibori said it and so shall it be by the Grace of God.
“Some of our brothers and sisters in APC party are the ones grumbling and murmuring; using 2019 Urhobo Governorship as a divisive tool to pursue their selfish political interests. Our people will not fall for their deceitful agenda. Okowa is our Choice 2019.
“We trust the pedigree of Gov Okowa which is why he will get our total support in 2019. He will in turn hand over to an Urhobo Governor on May 29, 2023. This is the correct and valid Urhobo deal politically and Gov Okowa will deliver on his promises now and in the future. He is a reliable political leader.”
