Ewhubare Siakpere, who stated this on Sunday in Orerokpe, headquarters of Okpe Local Government Area, at the grand finale of the statewide consultative visits by the Speaker, described the governorship aspirant as a developer, who, if given the opportunity to rule Delta state, would give Deltans the best like the incumbent Governor, Senator (Dr.) Ifeanyi Okowa.
The DG, who spoke through the Chairman of the Support Team, Mr Donald Akpojohare, said the Speaker, who is also the National Deputy Chairman of the Conference of Speakers of State Legislatures of Nigeria, had been generally accepted by the people, describing his statewide consultative visits as overwhelming and intimidating.
“The acceptance of the Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Sheriff Oborevwori for the governorship position in the state is one hundred percent. He is accepted by the people, he is a grassroots man, the people are in love with him as you can see from the environment that we should not contest it, other political parties are wasting their time and should join the team to move Delta forward”, he stated.
According to him; “The aim of Siakpere Team Support for Rt Hon Sheriff Oborevwori is to make sure that we are deeply involved in grassroots mobilization for the governorship aspirant, Rt Hon Sheriff Oborevwori. He is a community developer, a man full of capacity. He will do well and give us the best like Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, and we are really satisfied with him and that is why we are here today with many of our members to pledge our loyalty and do the right thing and even in the main elections, we will go there and give him the needed support and all the votes”.
He added that; “The arena here in Orerokpe is like a carnival as you can see for yourself. It is not our own making, but Almighty God did it and we give glory to God for what He has done for today even the weather, you can see that the presence of God is working”.
