Governorship Tribunal: Uduaghan Assures Deltans of Okowa’s Victory
LAGOS OCTOBER 26TH (URHOBOTODAY)-The immediate past Governor of Delta State, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, wants Deltans, especially members of the Peoples Democratic Party, to remain calm and steadfast following the tribunal ruling nullifying the election of Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State.
Uduaghan said there is no cause for alarm in Delta State as the same fate will not befall the state Governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa.
Uduaghan, in a statement on Saturday, said the governorship election in Delta State was free and fair and devoid of violence, adding: “The international observers who monitored the governorship election in Delta State affirmed the results as being free, fair and without any form of violence.”
Giving further reasons why the PDP and Okowa defeated other governorship candidates at the election, the former governor said: “In Delta State, PDP was the only party that campaigned vigorously and was in touch with the voters even at the grassroots level. We worked hard for our candidate.
“So I am appealing to our supporters to remain calm while we await the tribunal ruling on Monday. There is no cause for alarm as I am sure that those who went to the tribunal were aware that they have no case and the PDP and its candidate, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa will emerge victorious at the end of the day.”
