“He is well placed to step into the shoes of his boss to drive the Stronger Delta mantra to a higher pedestrian. The sparkling qualities of KBO includes: His sense of Loyalty, high commitment to duty, competence, highly experienced Political leader, peaceful dispositions and Conflicts management strategies, and as a focused politician, administrator”.
Engr. Ogeah then enjoined Deltans, PDP delegates to look critically at the good Sterling qualities of Otuaro and support him. He said: “We the executive members of ASOJA met today to look at the political development in our state, particularly with regards to who succeed Governor Okowa come 2023”.
“We examined the antecedents of all the governorship aspirants jostling to fly the PDP, our party’s flag in the 2023 governorship election and we came to the conclusion that deputy Governor Dcn Kingsley Burutu Otuaro is best fitted to continue the marvelous work being done by the Okowa’s administration in Delta State”.
“As you are all aware, the deputy governor has been adjudged the most loyal deputy governor in Nigeria by our Royal fathers and it takes a good servant to be a good leader. His antecedents and commitments to good governance has been tested and proven”.
“As a man with the fear of God and expert in conflict resolution/peace building, KBO’s deposition to peace will consolidate the existing peace we currently enjoy in the state. He is a man with few words and well focus.”
“As it is today, Deltans and all residents of Delta State are very happy with with what Okowa is doing in our state, his performance outpace expectations of vast majority of Deltans. As you may have heard, in a rare gesture of acknowledgement, former Governor James Onanefe Ibori, in a speech during the recent Delta PDP mega rally, showered praises and commendations on Governor Okowa for his spectacular performance”.
“You will agree with me that such commendation is uncommon in Nigerian polity. It all goes to show that Delta state under Okowa/Otuaro’s administration is strong.”
“I believe that Governor Okowa would have won another term with landslide if not for constitutional limit of two terms for governors. But as the saying goes, you do not change a performing team. Okowa/Otuaro has performed very well and it is only good for Otuaro to step in and continue the good work”.
“We have also resolve to activate our affiliate groups in all the 9 LGAs in Delta north and we plan to use various media outlets to reach out to our party’s (PDP) delegates, to encourage them to vote KBO during the party’s guber primary.”
“We are aware of the agitations from Delta Central for the governorship seat to be zone to the district, this is an usual demand, having participated in the previous PDP governorship primaries since 1998, the district is not expected to be dash the 2023 governorship position on a plater of gold”.
“The issue of rotation, which is invariably what they are asking for. This is anti-democraty. That is, not how democracy works. Delta North was not dashed the governorship seat in 2015. we fought hard to get it.”
The leadership noted that ASOJA will continue to live up to the group’s Vision and mission Statement and by its motto, which hinges on “equity and justice and we stand for equity”, “fairness and Justice” as another reason for backing the Guber candidacy of KBO.
“It will be fair to allow the Ijaws to taste the governorship seat as a major stakeholder in Delta PDP family. At most, let all the aspirants sweat it out at the party’s primary as it has been done before”. Engr Ogeah concluded.
