The aspiration of the Speaker, Delta State House of Assembly and Peoples Democratic Party governorship candidate for the 2023 general election, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori, has received a major boost.
This followed Oborevwori’s endorsement for the March 11, 2023 election on Thursday by students and butchers.
The National President of NADESSTU, Comrade Okorocha Nkwor Gabriel, in a motion he moved endorsing the Delta State PDP governorship candidate when he had an interactive session with the students, said Oborevwori has done so much in the State since he became the Speaker of the State House of Assembly.
While saying he would make a good Governor if elected, Comrade Nkwor said he was endorsed by the students for his outstanding achievements in the State.
His motion for the endorsement of the governorship hopeful was seconded by the President, Students Union Government of Delta State Polytechnic, Ogwashi-Uku, Comrade Boi Ekenemechaku Samuel, and supported by all the students.
Oborevwori had said that if elected as the next governor of the state, he would be a governor for all Deltans and not a tribal one.
Oborevwori, who took out time to educate the students why more Universities were established by the administration of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, said the incumbent had done so much for students in the state and promised to do more if elected.
He implored the students to vote for the Atiku-Okowa presidential ticket for the nation to rise again, adding that the All Progressives Congress collapsed everything in the country and it was time to get it right again.
He said: “The Atiku-Okowa ticket is the only ticket that can reset and rescue our country and so vote for Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, vote for me and my running mate, Sir Monday Onyeme, and all other PDP candidates in the 2023 general election.”
Oborevwori in Asaba on Thursday also met with members of the State Association of Butchers.
He promised them a better deal if elected governor.
The President of the Association, Chief Iteje Akusu, assured the governorship candidate of the total support of his members for his gubernatorial ambition.
Akusu said: “We will support your governorship aspiration.
“We will work for your victory and that of all other PDP candidates in the 2023 general election.”
