FEW MONTHS before the 2023 general elections, Delta State PDP Governorship Candidate and Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Chief Sheriff Oborevwori, has accused the federal government led by the All Progressives Congress, APC, of destroying Nigeria through poor policies.
Oborevwori, who spoke at Uvwie during the PDP’s ward-by-ward campaign in the local government area, insisted that the APC must go and urged Nigerians to vote it out of power. He urged Nigerians to vote massively for the PDP, claiming that only the PDP could “reset” Nigeria if elected.
The PDP Governorship candidate, who spoke separately in wards 8, 9, 10, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 and 7 in the area, stated that “from 2019 to 2022, the poverty rate in the country has risen to 23 percent, demonstrating the failure of the APC government at the federal level in the country.”
“The promotion of poverty by the APC led federal government is the cause of insecurity. Unemployment rate has also risen almost all industries are dead. Even Federal roads that were constantly maintained by FERMA during the PDP led federal government between 1999 and 2015 has stopped. FERMA is no longer working. The APC Muslim/Muslim ticket is not doable, such ticket cannot fly in a diverse society like Nigeria.
“The only party that has the solution to the problems currently bedeviling the country is the PDP. PDP is the only party that can reset and rebuild this nation is the PDP. So APC must go. Your mandate is to deliver all PDP candidates.
He stated that if elected President with his running mate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar would bring his wealth of experience as a former Vice President and in business to bear in the governance of the country.
Oborevwori also urged voters to support him, his deputy, Chief Ighoyota Amori, for Senate, Delta Central District, and all other PDP candidates, Barrister Evelyn Omavowan Oboro for House of Representatives, Okpe/Sapele/Uvwie Federal Constituency, and Chief Solomon Okporua Ighrakpata for Delta State House of Assembly, Uvwie Constituency.
He went on to say that his M.O.R.E. agenda would result in meaningful development, opportunities for all, realistic reforms, and improved peace and security.
He said: “Governor Ifeanyi Okowa has done a lot in the area of infrastructure, health, human capital development, peace and security and prudent utilisation of state resources, among others. I will listen more, achieve more and do more to consolidate on the gains of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa’s achievements.”
He urged Uvwie residents to vote, claiming that he worked tirelessly through the DC-23 to ensure that the governorship seat came to Delta Central District; vote because she is eloquent, vibrant, and experienced; and vote to allow him to use his wealth of experience to develop Uvwie.
Chief Ighoyota Amori, Barrister Evelyn Omavowan Oboro, and Chief Solomon Okporua Ighrakpata, who also spoke at the campaign, promised to give the people adequate representation and urged them to vote PDP from top to bottom.
Amori praised the people of Uvwie for their large turnout, saying it demonstrated their willingness to vote for all PDP candidates in 2023.
He stated that Uvwie was instrumental in the formation of the PDP in the state and urged the people to vote for him and all other PDP candidates for greater development.
Amori said the Okpe/Sapele/Uvwie and Ughelli North/Ughelli South/Udu Federal Constituencies had both represented Urhobo at different times at the Senate, “so I urge all of you to vote for me for the Senate, come 2023.”
Barrister Evelyn Omavowan Oboro on her part, said Nigeria was a better country when PDP was in power, saying; “prices of food stuffs and other products were moderate; fuel price was less than N100; a dollar was less than N200; the economy was booming and rated one of the best in Africa.
“But today, APC has destroyed Nigeria in less than eight years at the Federal level with failed economic policies. Fuel is now about N250 per liter; a bag of local rice is now N55,000; a dollar is now over N800 in the black market.”
Chief Solomon Okporua Ighrakpata also urged people to vote for him and all other PDP candidates from top to bottom, noting that the PDP-led administration has done a lot for Uvwie Local Government Area, including roads, schools, and health centers, among other things.
Ighrakpata stated that the people of Uvwie have every reason to vote for Chief Sheriff Oborevwori, citing the fact that he is not only an indigene of Uvwie, but has also brought numerous development projects to the area.
He described Delta State PDP Governorship Candidate, who is also the National Deputy Chairman of the Conference of Speakers of State Legislatures in Nigeria, as a humble, articulate, and peace-loving man who would make an excellent Delta State governor.
Ward 4 Chairperson, Comrade Erutase Omolo; Ward 3 Chairperson, Comrade Jaho Jerkins; Ward 2, Morris Amuche, represented by Vice Chairman, Clement Ogaga; Ward 1, Abel Taire; and Ward 7, Mr Julius Otuedor all promised to deliver all PDP candidates in the 2023 general elections.
