Delta LG Polls: Don’t Fight Over Positions, Oborevwori Urges Aspirants

Following the crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Delta State over the alleged imposition of candidates in the forthcoming local government election in the state, Governor Sheriff Oborevwori has cautioned aspirants not to fight over positions.

Oborevweri made the call yesterday at the PDP Delta South Leaders and Stakeholders’ meeting held at the residence of former Governor of the state, Emmanuel Uduaghan. The governor said: “Delta South PDP is united and I want to thank all of you because coming together like this makes the party stronger.

“I did not lose in any local government in Delta South. Whether it was a small margin or not, I won, but in my Senatorial District, I lost in some local governments. So, I am very thankful to Delta South.

“The state chairman is moving from Delta Central to Delta South and as for the local government council elections, let me urge all aspirants to be patient and not to fight for any position because only one person can occupy a position at a time.”

The governor added: “Look at me I had 38 cases and I won all by the grace of God and that was possible because God wanted it to be so. “Again, I appeal to you, don’t fight for any position when the time comes God will do it for you.

With all the battles, we won in 21 local governments out of 25 and with a margin of over 120,000 votes. “I’ve come here to assure you that I’ll not disappoint you people and we will continue to do the right thing.

You know, when you do the right thing, some people may be angry but a lot of people will be happy.” The governor thanked the party’s faithful and urged them to continue to respect the leaders of the party
