The Director-General of Siakpre Team for Sheriff Oborevwori, Mr. John Ewhubare Siakpere, has congratulated the Speaker of Delta State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori, on his clearance by the screening panel of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Oborevwori, who is also the National Deputy Chairman of the Conference of Speakers of State Legislatures of Nigeria, was screened in Port Harcourt on April 28 and issued with clearance certificate to contest the May 21, 2022, governorship primary election in Delta State.
He is ahead of 13 others seeking the nomination of PDP in Delta State for the Delta State governorship election in 2023.
Siakpere, while congratulating the foremost governorship aspirant, said the fact that the Speaker scaled the screening hurdle showed that he was eminently qualified to be the next Governor of the state.
The DG, who is leading the main support group for the Speaker’s aspiration, and also a key member of some UK – based groups rooting for Rt. Hon Oborevwori, said victory was sure for the aspirant in the forthcoming primary election and berated those sponsoring campaigns of calumny against him, describing them as enemies of progress.
He said there was no encumbrance to the realization of the governorship bid of Rt.Hon Oborevwori, stating that those opposed to him had no justifiable reasons to do so, as they were onlyfabricating falsehood in order to serve their evil and wicked intentions,
While stating that Oborevwori was eminently qualified educationally, he added that all his educational qualifications were genuinely earned, just as he noted that the Speaker had been outstanding in all his dealings and activities, making him a square peg in a square hole.
On the needless controversy over the names on Rt.Hon Oborevwori’s credentials, Siakpere argued that all his names had unambiguously been in the public domain over the years, adding that all his credentials, especially his certificates, carried the name Sheriff F.O. Oborevwori.
He wondered why the controversy over the names on the Speaker’s credentials, since the initials F.O. represented Francis Orohwedor.
Siakpere noted, “Our man, Rt. Hon.Chief, (Elder) Sheriff Francis Orohwedor Oborevwori, is the next Governor of Delta State, come May 29, 2023.
” The hullabaloo over his name and educational qualifications are misplaced and ill – motivated. Even his critics know that he is very qualified to serve as Governor of Delta State. He attended those schools, the certificates were not forged. Doubting Thomases can go to Edo State University, Ekpoma and Delta State University (DELSU), Abraka, to verify their frivolous claims. God has put all detractors to shame and by May 21, 2022 and after the 2023 governorship election, we are going to sing victory songs,” Mr Siakpere added.
