Delta 2015: O’tega, Okowa, Ogboru set for live TV debate
THE much anticipated live TV debate among top contenders in the Delta State gubernatorial election will now hold on March 24 in Asaba as against the earlier announced February 19 date.
Doely Intermediaries and Inspire Delta, organizers of the 2015 Delta State Gubernatorial Election Debate, in a statement last week announced that the postponement became necessary to accommodate all contestants.
Project Coordinator, Jude Banye said the decision to postpone the event was taken in light of the recent postponement of the General and State Elections by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Banye explained that due to the importance of the Gubernatorial Election Debate and the anticipation of the state and its indigenes towards the event, there was a need to ensure that it was an all-encompassing debate with full attendance of all the gubernatorial candidates. He stated that after consultations with all candidates and parties involved, the organization has been constrained to postpone the event to March 24, 2015 to ensure the attendance of all candidates.
The event, which is billed to hold at Grand Hotel, Asaba, Delta State, at 7.00pm, will be broadcast live on Channels TV.
Doely Intermediaries is an independent, non-partisan management consultancy headed by seasoned business analysts and workshop facilitators working with Inspire Delta Initiative to deliver the project. Doely Intermediaries organised the 2011 Election Symposium tagged: One Man One Vote: How Possible?
The debate will be an ideal opportunity for the three main contenders, Chief Great Ogboru of Labour Party (LP), Olorogun Otega Emerhor of APC and Senator Ifeanyi Okowa of PDP to share their vision with Deltans at home and in the Diaspora.
