As 2019 Governorship election draws closer, Delta State Governor’s Aide on Media, Mr. Ossai Success, has said that 6th failure awaits the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate, Chief Great Ogboru, noting that the incumbent governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, will defeat him.
Ossai, who made this known in a chat with newsmen in Asaba at the weekend, said that Ogboru will be defeated, given Governor Okow’s achievements.
“Governor Ifeanyi Okowa being an experienced politician in the past years has been able to do justice to the State resources in bringing prosperity to Deltans.
Ogboru is not a grassroots politician but Diaspora politician that knows nothing about the state.
He only comes to Delta State every election period to contest, as a rich man he claimed he is, he hasn’t impacted his community.
Ogboru will be defeated more than former Governors Chief James Ibori, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan defeated him because Governor Okowa is one governor in Nigeria who has performed beyond expectation.
Okowa in the past three and half years has utilised the state resources wisely despite the recession by constructing over 300 roads , empowered over 40,000 youths through the Job Creation office, revamped technical colleges, construction of over 4,738 classrooms and construction of drainages to check flood and in the course of this year, the proposed construction of drainage projects in Effurun/Warri axis with budgetary provision for to the tune of N3 billion.
Okowa has kept his covenant with Deltans by spreading infrastructural development, human capital development, job creation to the three senatorial districts that made up the state.
The opposition parties in the state have nothing to campaign about unlike Governor Okowa, who is going about campaigning with his achievements”, he said .
