ASABA—SPEAKER of the Delta State House of Assembly, Chief Sheriff Oborevwori, has commended Deltans for renewing the mandate given Governor Ifeanyi Okow in 2015 for another four years through the ballot during the March 9 election.
He also thanked them for voting him and other candidates of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the just-concluded elections.
Speaking yesterday during the resumption of plenary, Oborevwori congratulated Okowa for his landslide victory and re-election as governor.
He said: “The elections have come and gone and I therefore, wish to thank God Almighty for the peace and success.
“Accordingly, I heartily congratulate Dr. Okowa on his landslide victory and re-election as governor of the state. This is indeed a vote of confidence passed on the governor by an overwhelming majority of Deltans.”
He used the opportunity to congratulate members of the House that emerged victorious at the polls and also prayed for those that are going through challenges with their elections, noting “I believe with God on our side, all things are possible.
“In the same vein, I also congratulate all the senators-elect, members of the House of Representatives-elect and indeed all Assembly members-elect on the platform of PDP in the state.
“Let me also seize this opportunity to specially thank Deltans for their solidarity and show of love for our great party, the PDP during the general elections. I promise we will never let you down.”
“I urge us as always to put all hands on deck to ensure that together with the other two arms of government, we deliver on our electoral promises to the good people of our dear state.
“I therefore, urge chairmen of Committees who are yet to submit reports on Bills referred to their Committees to turn in such reports to enable the House process them before the end of the sixth Assembly.”
