- A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta state, Chief Great Ogboru, is in the news again
- Ogboru, a former governorship candidate of the party in the state, says he is ready to liberate the state from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)
- He also said President Muhammadu Buhari and many others in the APC are committed to the cause in Delta state
Five time governorship candidate in Delta state and APC chieftain, Chief Great Ovadje Ogboru, has described himself as one of those who would be liberating Delta state from the PDP in the 2019 general elections.
Ogboru stated this while addressing hundreds of APC supporters on Sunday, September 2, at Orerokpe, Delta state.
He said: “The time for liberation has come and the chief of that liberation is no other person than our president, President Muhammadu Buhari who is our chief liberator because he is coming here leading a pack of liberators amongst whom are our comrade chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole himself, our super senator himself Ovie Omo-Agege and my very good self, Chief Ovadje Ogboru who is one of the liberators now.
“With all of us joining hands with you, the liberation for Delta state indeed has started."
Also speaking, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege in his address, appealed to the executives, elders and leaders of the APC to elect Ogboru as governor of the state come 2019, describing him as the only man who can win the state governorship election for APC.
His words: “We all know that only one man can win the Delta state governorship election for APC is Chief Great Ovadje Ogboru.
“I am not supporting him because he is an Urhobo man but because he is the only one that can win the governorship election for us.
“Therefore, I and others have gone into the fight (APC crisis), won and lost and the stage is now clear by God’s grace to return Chief Ogboru as our APC nominee for governor and by God’s grace, the APC governorship candidate in 2019.”
Chief Ogboru had paid a consultative visit to the senator, who represents Delta Central senatorial district, alongside senior members of the party in the state.
Meanwhile, in an earlier report on Legit.ng, Senator Omo-Agege advised people of Urhobo to ensure that they re-elect President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 general elections, saying that it is in the best interest of the Urhobo nation.
Omo-Agege, who made a consultative visit to leaders, elders, ward and local council executives of the APC Ughelli, Otu-Jeremi and Otor-Udu in Ughelli North, Ughelli South and Udu council areas of the state, stated that re-electing the president for a second term in office would attract more infrastructural development to Delta Central and Delta state at large.
