WARRI – The Delta Association of Chambers of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture, DACCIMA and the Forum, for Justice and Human Rights Defence, FJHD, based in Warri, Delta State, have congratulated Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan of the state on his victory at the poll.
But the governorship candidate of the Democratic Peoples Party, Chief Great Ogboru, in a message, yesterday, called on all members of his party and supporters to remain steadfast, patient and hopeful, as “we prepare for the governorship election petition and others.”
He called on “anyone with results and evidence of malpractice to kindly submit it urgently,” adding, “we need to recover our stolen victory.”
But DACCIMA, which is an umbrella body of the City Chambers of Commerce in the state, comprising, Asaba, Ughelli, Sapele, Warri and Ethiope Chambers of Commerce, and leader of the Organised Private Sector, OPS, conveyed its support in a letter to the governor, by its president, Prince David Eweta, saying he earned his victory through the overwhelming votes of Deltans.
According to the group, “the chambers re-affirm our commitment and unflinching support for the various economic and industrial programmes of your government and pray Your Excellency to design policies to encourage and promote dialogue, as well as the establishment of a viable, sustainable collective bargaining apparatus in both public and private sectors in the state.”
