Onuesoke Congratulates Okowa, Says Victory Not Strange
Chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Sunny Onuesoke, has congratulated Delta state governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa on his re-election as the governor of Delta state describing his victory as not strange to people of Delta state.
He said the victory of Okowa at the polls was not strange because his performance index as governor of the state has made the electorates love him and crave for more of his excellent performance in another four years.
Okowa of the PDP won in 23 of the 25 local government areas leaving his closest rival, Chief Great Ogboru of the APC to win in only two local government 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 thanks giving 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 given 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 this great feat I would even advocate for 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 Ifeanyi 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 will advance the development of the entire state.
