The Delta State PDP Governorship Candidate for the 2023 general elections, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori, has promised that critical ongoing projects not completed by May next year, when the present administration comes to an end, including the already commenced construction of Beneku Bridge and Phase 3 and 4 of Ashaka road, in Ndokwa East Local Government Area of the State, would be completed by his incoming administration.
The Gubernatorial Candidate who is also the Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly, stated this on Friday, December 30, in Aboh, during the State PDP campaign tour to Ndokwa East and Ndokwa West Local Government Areas of Delta State.
He said: “I am very happy to be here today seeing the crowd and I want to assure you that Ndokwa Nation will be part of my Government in Jesus’ Name, Amen. I know what His Excellency has been doing here, and I want to assure you all that I will do MORE if elected Governor next year”.
According to him, “I have been going from one place to another and I’ve never made a promise, but I want to make a promise here that the Beneku Bridge that our Governor has embarked on, if it is not completed in his administration, I will complete it when I assume office as Governor by the grace of God and again, the phase 1 and 2 of Ashaka road is almost completed. We will continue with the phase 3 and phase 4 of the Ashaka road. There are other ongoing projects and very soon, they will be completed and I will do other projects in Ndokwa East”.
Rt. Hon. Oborevwori, who is also the National Deputy Chairman of the Conference of Speakers of State Legislatures of Nigeria, described his running mate, Sir Monday Onyeme, as a reliable, competent, and very articulate professional who would bring his many years of experience to bear on the administration.
He rained heavy knocks on the APC Deputy Governorship Candidate, Friday Osanebi, who served under him as Deputy Speaker, describing him as an unproductive and unresourceful lawmaker who contributed nothing to lawmaking in his 12 years in the House of Assembly.
“My dear people of Ndokwa East, your son Friday Osanebi who is the Deputy Governorship candidate of the APC is a failed legislator.
“The capacity of a legislator is known during debates in the House and for almost two years that he worked with me as my Deputy Speaker, he never contributed to debates and motions in the House.
“You can check the records of the House in the past 11 and half years, Osanebi presented no bill, no motion and no contribution to debates, all he does is press his phone while sitting is going on,” he stated.
“Ndokwa Nation be wise, I know that Ndokwa Nation is Sheriffied and Atikulated. Our Governor has done well, some people do not want the Beneku Bridge to work, but by the grace of God, it must work. The man who has done well should be elevated and remember that a vote for Atiku is a vote for Okowa. This is the first time we are having one of our own and who is very focused going for the position of the Vice-President. Let us support his aspiration by voting for him and Atiku Abubakar”, he added.
