•Ex-Governor Ibori

Former Governor of Delta State, Chief James Onanefe Ibori, has congratulated the people of Delta State for choosing peace and unity by re-electing Governor Ifeanyichukwu Arthur Okowa for a second term.

In a press statement signed by his Media Assistant Tony Eluemunor, Chief Ibori said on Monday that the people of Delta State spoke with one voice last Saturday and overwhelmingly supported Senator Dr. Okowa “to continue his good work in the service of Delta State.”

His words: “This victory belongs to the good people of Delta State, not to the Peoples Democratic Party members alone because the entire state voted massively to re-elect Governor Ifeanyi Okowa who defeated his opponent convincingly. I cherish this unity of purpose.

“The people of Delta chose fairness, equity, peace and unity instead of discord, disharmony and rancour. This wise choice has saved the state from the conflict and internal contention that has wracked many states in Nigeria.”

Ibori said that he was absolutely sure that Okowa will continue his good work and remain committed to the entire state as one constituency because his victory was made possible by all Deltans from the lush and fertile upland areas to the creeks and mangrove swamps of the oil-bearing communities.

In conclusion, Ibori said: “Now that the elections are over, Delta state needs to move on with its normal developmental strides on all fronts; industries, education, health, road construction, ICT or sports. So I appeal to all Deltans to join hands with Governor Okowa to advance Delta State, Nigeria’s “Big Heart”.”
