Onuesoke congratulates Okowa, says victory well-deserved
CHIEFTAIN of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Sunny Onuesoke, has congratulated Delta State governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa on his reelection as the governor-elect, describing his victory as well-deserved.
He said the victory of Okowa at the polls was not strange because his performance index as governor of the state has made the electorate love him and crave for more of his excellence in another four years
Ifeanyi Okowa of the PDP has won in 23 of the 25 local government areas in Delta State leaving his closest rival, Chief Great Ogboru of APC with only two local governments in the Delta State Guber election.
Official results from all 25 LGAs released by INEC showed that Okowa polled 925,274 while Ogboru scored 215,938 votes.
Addressing newsmen by the sideline during the thanksgiving service for declaring Okowa as the winner of the election, elated Onuesoke said Okowa’s victory at the poll was not strange because he merited it as shown in his performance index in the state.
He said the Governor’s astonishing performance in the state as evidently recorded in his numerous achievements gave him and others the belief that his re-election is a concluded issue hence you cannot suppress the wish of the people.
According to him, “If someone has performed creditably well he should be giving the opportunity to tidy up things in another four years and that is what we saw in the victory of Okowa in the just concluded Delta State governorship election.
“Although, I am not an advocate of 4×4 but an advocate of performance. If a leader like Okowa has done I would even advocates for the third term for him because what we needed in Delta State is performance leadership. but a leader whose performance index is distinctive as exhibited by Governor Okowa in Delta State, such a leader should be allowed to do another four years as enshrined in the Nigeria constitution.”
Onuesoke remains optimistic that the people-oriented Governor, Senator Okowa is on course to do better in another four years, just as he assured everyone that the governor would continually champion such courses that advance the development of the entire state.
