The Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly and National Deputy Chairman of the Conference of Speakers of State Legislatures of Nigeria, Rt.Hon. Sheriff F.O Oborevwori JP FICMC, has commended Deltans for the massive support for his gubernatorial race.
The Speaker who spoke through his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Dennis Otu, berated a faceless author circulating a mischievous and malicious publication concerning the governorship race by Mr. Speaker.
The evil machinations of the author is to deliberately promote falsehood and deceive the gullible. However, Deltans are wiser and cannot fall for such cheap blackmail.
Rt Hon Oborevwori maintained that he is still very much in the race and as a matter of fact, he is the frontrunner.
He called on Deltans to ignore the wicked publication purporting that he has stepped down from the race.
According to the Statement ; ” The purported stepping down from the governorship race is the imagination of people who are scared of the massive support he is enjoying from Deltans at home and in the diaspora, and other residents in the State.”
Rt.Hon. Oborevwori advised all and sundry that politics should be issue- based and not attack on personalities.
The Speaker further said that at no time has he been invited by any anti- graft agency for questioning of fraud related issues.
Rt Hon Oborevwori who is currently attending a Retreat with the leadership of the Senate and House of Representatives Committees on the Review of the 1999 Constitution, urged his teeming supporters to remain focus, steadfast and committed to the collective dream of moving from Stronger Delta to Advancing Delta.
