The governorship candidate for the Democratic Peoples Party(DPP), Chief Great Ogboru Friday stormed Asaba, Delta State capital for a rally, saying he was not comfortable with INEC’s delay in releasing the voters’ register.
Addressing his supporters at Ogbe-Eke Square which was graced by the former Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly, Mr. Pius Ewherido and host of other dignitaries, Ogboru said he had demanded for the voter’s register from INEC but expressed regret over the response.
According to him, “they said they are working on it. I tried to ask questions why they are working on it; that you have not concluded what they called voter’s register and you have a date for an election. And when I asked more questions they try to tell me that maybe we are afraid of an election.
I am saying how do we play football match without football. They want us to play football and there is no football. They want us to do that there is no voters register. Is it possible and that is why we are using this opportunity also to tell INEC to have a rethink to give us voters register and ten days thereafter they can conduct an election. And whenever that election comes I am sure we are going to vote them out. We are going to say bye bye to Uduaghan”.
Meanwhile, Ogboru seized the opportunity to debunk claim that he was against the building an airport in Asaba, pointing out that he was only quarreling about the huge capital outlay “in an airport that is costing more than a budget of some states for the 2011 fiscal year”.
