A chieftain of All Progressives Congress, APC, in Delta State, Chief Micheal Johnny,  has that a national chairmanship candidate of the party and former  governor of Edo State, Mr. Adams Oshiomohle, will adhere to the power rotation by allowing the governorship candidate of the party in the state to emerge from Delta North senatorial district which is the key to the party’s victory in 2019 governorship election.

Johnny, who spoke yesterday in Warri, Delta State, also called on all APC delegates from South South to cast their votes for Oshiomohle in the forthcoming APC  national convention, noting that Oshiomohle has the capacity to deliver the party at all levels in 2019.

The Ijaw leader and activist, however, charged Oshiomohle, if he emerges, to ensure that Delta North gets the APC governorship ticket as already agreed to complete their eight years by 2023.

He advised Oshiomohle to avoid the mistake made in Bayelsa State APC governorship primaries responsible for APC’s loss at the general election, noting that the 2019 governorship in Delta State is a must and very serious project for APC.

“In Delta State, rotation of governorship has come to stay. The Delta North has eight years mandate, the APC governorship candidate should come from Delta North if the party really wants to win the state in 2019,” he said.
