2023: Oborevwori pledges inclusive, meaningful development for Deltans ~ Truth Reporters

Delta State Governorship Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chief Sheriff Oborevwori on Tuesday said he would run an inclusive and people-oriented government for the people if elected as Governor. 

Speaking at "The Plaform" an interactive session with journalists organised by the Nigeria Union Of Journalists (NUJ) Delta State Council, Oborevwori said he would run an all inclusive government and serve as Governor for all Deltans irrespective of their tribe and political affiliations. 

He said the immense contributions of the mass media to the development of the Nigerian society, would always be appreciated, adding that the media have been in the vanguard of ensuring the survival, unity and progress of our dear nation. 

According to him, the Press has always been a partner in progress with the State and we will continue to ensure conducive operating environment for the media. 

"This impressive Press centre building is one of the numerous dividends of the relationship between the State government and the Press. 

"At this juncture, I wish to formally remind you of the candidacy of our amiable Governor, His Excellency, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa as Vice President and running mate to a great patriot, His Excellency, Atiku Abubakar under the Peoples Democratic party in the forthcoming general elections. 

"In the same vein, I have also come here today to personally inform you of my candidacy as governor of Delta State, under the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2023 general elections. 

"I have a special agenda, designed to make a greater Delta. It is what I have envisioned as the M.O.R.E Agenda. This simply means:

Meaningful Development; Opportunities for all; Realistic Reforms; and Enhanced Peace and Security. 

"My social contract with Deltans is a positive affirmation of continuity, boldly recognising and building on the commendable legacies of Gov. Okowa and by the grace of God, the in-coming Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. 

"The M.O.R.E Agenda will sustain the highly successful Okowa’s Stronger Delta agenda, which has given rise to outstanding achievements in physical and human capital development across all parts of the state. 

"Let me make a sincere pledge: that I will serve as governor for all Deltans, irrespective of social status, religion and tribe and I will be fair, just and accessible to all, whether  Urhobo, Anioma, Itsekiri, Ijaw or Isoko as well as non-indigenes in the State. 

"I have the capacity and experience to make Delta proud and do more for the present and future generations. By divine grace, I stand today as the longest serving speaker of the State House of Assembly. 

"I have enjoyed the respect and solidarity of my esteemed colleagues in the House since 2017 when I became the Speaker and together, we have served diligently in unity under my leadership, keeping the legislature stable and safe for about six years now. 

"With all modesty, I have set a trail - blazing direction for the Legislature and will show similar competence and commitment, with greater gusto, if elected governor of the State," he stated. 

The PDP Governorship candidate said he was a man of the people with a vision to enthrone sustainable development, lasting peace and orderliness in our multi ethnic state. 

"I am pro - masses which journalists also stand for. I am pro- NUJ. Let me say that I am happy to recall that I was in your midst at the labour house here in Asaba when this present executive of the state NUJ was inaugurated about 5 years ago.  

"Sheriff is your friend and one of you. As governor, I would remain your good and reliable friend, when hopefully I get to Government House by the grace of God." 

He urged the journalists to help in publicizing his M.O.R.E Agenda by explaining the potential dividends to the electorate across Delta State.  

"Use your PVC to vote for me and indeed all PDP candidates from the presidency, to the Senate, House of Representatives and House of Assembly. 

"I urge you to sensitize the people to vote PDP 5/5 as it is the only hope to rescue Nigeria from unimaginable hardship, unemployment, insecurity, bad economy, fuel scarcity and general hopelessness in the land, especially under the failed APC government. We have never had it so terrible as Nigerians. 

"I look with nostalgia our recent past when Nigeria was very peaceful and prosperous under the PDP administration. The PDP will restore the lost glory of the nation, if voted into power at various levels in the general elections. 

"That is the undeniable truth the mass media are expected to amplify. As PDP governorship flag bearer, I am detribalized, accountable and sure-footed. 

"I come with selfless passion and patriotism to serve. I have done extremely well as Speaker of Delta State House of Assembly with the collaboration of my colleagues and I will do MORE as governor," Oborevwori stated. 

State Chairman of NUJ, Comrade Michael Ikeogwu lauded the Speaker for his outstanding presentation on his plans for Deltans and prayed God to grant him his desires.
