Members of the Exco of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Delta State have dumped the gubernatorial candidate of the party in the 2023 general elections, Chief Kenneth Gbagi and embraced the State GovernorElect, Hon Sheriff Oborevwori.Advertisement

The Delta State Chairman of the SDP, Ambassador Oke Idawene, speaking on Wednesday, when he led Exco members of the party on a courtesy visit to the State GovernorElect, Hon Sheriff Oborevwori in his office in Asaba, made it clear that that they had nothing to do with Chief Kenneth Gbagi, saying he was on his own.

According to him, they were not part of any litigation brought against the state GovernorElect, Hon Oborevwori by the SDP Governorship Candidate, adding that Chief Kenneth Gbagi imposed himself on members of the party in the State.Advertisement

While saying that the dream of making Oborevwori as a Governor has been realised collectively, Ambassador Idawene said that We want to let you know that we are not part of any litigation against your emergence as GovernorElect of Delta State.

This visit is calculated to tell the world that we did not do it in hiding , we did it to say that before SDP, there was a Delta State and that you are the Governorelect and in few days, you will be sworn in as the Governor of Delta State and not PDP.

The entire Exco here is saying that everything we will do to ensure that Hon Sheriff Oborevwori succeed in Delta, we will do it.Advertisement

We are Deltans, we are doing what Delta State stands for and not party affairs, our members will be in the tribunal as agents of the party to say that Chief Kenneth Gbagi was never ready for elections, he did not pay one single agent and that we have rejected him body, soul and spirit.

During the elections nobody here voted for SDP, we all voted PDP, we also voted for our Governor, Senator Dr Ifeanyi Okowa for Presidency .

Delta State must move forward.

Responding, Delta State GovernorElect, Hon Sheriff Oborevwori, expressed gratitude to the SDP members for the visit, saying that I have told our people that I want to be Governor for all Deltans.Advertisement

I want to use this opportunity to thank all Deltans for the organic love because in all, we were able to win 21 local governments out of the 25 local governments in the state by the special grace of God with a margin of 119,880.
