BENIN CITY -The Executive Governor of Edo State, His Excellency Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has appealed to the good people of Delta State to be resolute and determined so as to collectively put an end to persistent acute poverty and long history of infrastructural decay, by voting out the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) during the forthcoming general elections.
The Comrade Governor who was a special guest at the ongoing Delta APC Retreat taking place in Benin City, the Edo State capital disclosed that Edo State receives one tenth of what the Delta State Government receives monthly from the federal government as share from oil revenue.
He said if Edo State that has such meagre financial resources could embark on massive socio-economic transformation of Edo State, it then means that Delta State ought to triple the performances recorded in the state. The highly humorous governor jokingly said: “I hear that they share plenty of money in Delta State during elections but the good people of Delta State should be wise enough to take the gift and vote for CHANGE (APC) in 2015.”
Governor Oshiomhole testified to the pedigree and impeccable character of the Delta State APC Governorship candidate, Olorogun Otega Emerhor . He told the audience that Emerhor is a man who tasted the two side of life because of his humble background. He added that the Delta APC governorship candidate started his business from the scratch and grew to become a leader in the corporate world especially in the Insurance, Banking and shipping sectors of the Nigerian economy.
He urged the APC leaders in Delta State to effectively mobilize the people at the grassroots to vote and protect their votes for the APC and Olorogun Emerhor in 2015. Comrade Oshiomhole further asserted that it is only the people of Delta State that will decide whether they want to remain in pitiable state of bad governance or vote for APC to end the sixteen years of massive corruption and looting of Delta State treasury.
