A chieftain of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Hon. Uche Uraih has said Senator Ifeanyi Okowa will be the first Delta Northerner to be Governor of Delta State twenty four years after the state’s creation.
Speaking in Asaba, Hon. Uraih, a former Chairman, Board of the Delta Broadcasting Service, Asaba stated that Delta State stands on a tripod.
According to him, Delta Central and Delta South have had their slots as Governor of Delta State and it is logical that Delta North will produce the next Governor of the oil rich state.
“Delta State stands on a tripod and as an Anioma man, it is right that after 24 years of state creation, Anioma man should be elected as Governor of Delta State, this is not too much to ask from all Deltans,” Hon. Uraih said.
He added, “Senator Okowa is eminently qualified and don’t forget, Delta Central has had it twice in Olorogun Felix Ibru and Chief James Ibori, Delta South had it once in the present Governor, Dr Uduaghan and for equity and fairness, North should have it.
The politician noted that his support for Senator Okowa’s guber interest was not only based on the fact that he is experienced but, because he is from Delta North district.
Hon. Uraih said, “I believe as an Anioma man, I should always be by my people and I am excited that we are producing the Governor of Delta State come April 11, he is qualified and understands the state more than other candidates.”
