The Obidients group in Agbor, Delta state, on Thursday, 16 March, welcomed Prince Ned Nwoko, the Delta North senator-elect to an open field meeting to discuss about the Saturday’s governorship election.
Addressing the group, majorly made up of youths, Nwoko expressed deep delight and cheered them for having stood for a noble quest of better Nigeria, where fairness, justice, equity, and accountability will be the prevailing custom.
To the amazement of the Obidients group, whom before the end of the meeting noted that they are “Obidiently Sheriffied”, Nwoko stated that, if he was to be in their age bracket, he would certainly be an Obidient as well. Given that, the group’s ideology is similar to his.
He said, “I like what you stand for; You stand for good governance, you stand for accountability, you stand for justice, you stand for equality, and those are the things I stand for. So, I deeply understand where you’re coming from.
“However, the presidential election has come and gone. Now, is time for you to calm down and think about your state.
“As a senator representing Anioma, I desire a better life for all my constituents. I have decided to have an office in Asaba, where I will have a good team of Administrators that will listen to you and document all your requests.
“That office can only be useful if PDP occupies the government house. This is because, I have shared my idea with the PDP governorship candidate, Sheriff, and he has keyed into it.
“With Sheriff as the governor, I will make sure that he does everything properly in the interest of all Deltans.
“The presidential election ended with INEC declaring Tinubu as the president-elect. Majority of Nigerians don’t want Tinubu as a president. Knowing who he is, I don’t want him as a president either.
“The only possible way to stop him is through the courts. That can only be possible with APC controlling less states.
“Any vote for APC governorship candidate is simply a vote for Tinubu.
“Aside from outwardly voting for APC, another way to give them a chance to take over Delta state is by dividing PDP votes, which they’re hoping to happen.
“We must not repeat the same mistake again. You still have a chance to save your state come Saturday, March 18th.
“I know that with your support and attention to details, Sheriff will be the next Governor of Delta state.”
