Delta speaker, deputy hail Okowa’s victory at Supreme Court
Speaker, Delta State House of Assembly (DTHA), Sheriff Oborevwori, and his deputy, Ochor Ochor, have commended the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in last year’s general election, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, on his victory at the Supreme Court.
The apex court’s jury headed by Justice Centus Nweze, had ruled in Okowa’s favour in the case filed by the All Progressives Congress (APC), to end the election legal tussle.
The Speaker, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary (CPS), Dennis Otu, described the victory of the governor as well deserved.
“I am so happy that the election of Okowa was today (Wednesday) further affirmed by the Supreme Court.
“The governor is committed to a stronger Delta and we should all join him in his determination to give our state the best. This victory in Abuja is for all and good for our democracy,” he stated.
On his part, the deputy speaker noted that the victory had only affirmed the decision of the people on the election day.
“This judgement is affirming the votes of Deltans on March 3, 2019. What it further means is for a stronger, better and a healthier Delta,” Ochor said.
In a statement also by his CPS, Emmanuel Enebeli, the deputy speaker congratulated the entire structure of the party at all levels and called on Deltans to join the Okowa-led government to move the state forward.
“This victory is for the development of the state, irrespective of our differences in politics and cultural affinity. We have to pool our resources (together) and join hands with the government, with Okowa as the driver, to move ahead.”
“I congratulate our great party, the Peoples Democratic Party, our amiable governor and, most of all, the people and friends of our state as we end a process that was not productive, but a cog to the wheel of development of our state,” he added.
