Edevbie Parleys With Campaign Team In Ughelli


*Lauds Counsel For Unflinching Support Despite Unfavourable Court Judgement

The runner-up in the Delta State PDP Guber primaries, Olorogun David Edevbie has appreciated his campaign structure and teeming supporters for keeping faith with him throughout his legal battle to date, despite unfavourable court judgments from the Appeal and Supreme Courts.

Edevbie gave the commendation on Friday 4th Nov. 2022 at Afiesere, Ughelli, his home town, shortly after returning from Abuja where he had been since the Supreme Court gave its ruling on the contentious Delta State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidacy between him and Hon. Oborevwori Sheriff.

Edevbie described his campaign structure as a team of very reliable politicians who believe in the modernisation of Delta State which only qualified development economists like him can make possible.

He told his think tank members, the federal constituency, senatorial, local govt area coordinators and their ward counterparts, as well as directors in his campaign structure to remain high in the spirit as the struggle has just begun.
He urged all his teeming supporters to remain united and speak with one voice to enable them to get the best deal in the ongoing political process. He said the right decision that will benefit him and his team would be taken at the appropriate time.

Earlier, the Director General of the Olorogun David Edevbie campaign organization, Chief Clement Ofuani told the mammoth crowd that the Supreme Court ruling was disappointing but it did not end the fight for the governorship seat in the State.
He thanked the people for turning out in large numbers because they believed in the modernization agenda of David Edevbie.

Also speaking, the national chairman of Delta Unity Group (DUG), Rt. Hon. Peter Onwusanya thanked Olorogun David Edevbie for providing a platform of hope for the lost sheep.
The former speaker of Delta State House of Assembly described the DUG as a radical offshoot of the David Edevbie campaign organisation to implement his great modernisation agenda.

For his part, the running mate of Olorogun Edevbie, Rt. Hon. Ossai N. Ossai said the journey has just begun. He said the DUG was waiting for directives from its leaders to enable them to know what next to do.

In his remarks, a member of the House of Reps, Hon. Daniel Reyenieju thanked the Urhobo nation for giving Olorogun Edevbie to the State, describing him as the best in the Guber race.
He stressed the hope that PDP was not making a historical mistake that will destroy the party, adding that despite the disappointing court judgment, the team is still intact.

The Delta Central Coordinator of the Edevbie campaign team, and national organizing Secretary of DUG, Prince Godwin Ejinyere who spoke on behalf of former local govt chairmen, said the Edevbie team is a bunch of brooms that are difficult to break. He urged everyone to remain with the team despite all odds.

The National vice chairman of DUG, Hon. Olise Imegwu said the Ndokwa nation remains with David Edevbie, while Hon. Monday Igbuya, a former speaker of DTHA noted that PDP might not have a candidate for the 2023 governorship election if the errors were not corrected.

For Prof. Patrick Muobaghare, immediate past Commissioner for Higher Education, Delta State, the High Court judgment in favour of Edevbie was the best in the country and wondered why it was not upheld at the higher level.
Hon. John Aleh, coordinator, of Edevbie Campaign, Ika North East LGA said Edevbie is God’s case no appeal. He charged the team to resist the temptation of being used and dumped.

For his part, Hon. (Dr.) Tonye Timi, from Patani, described the Supreme Court’s ruling as a victory in the hearts of Deltans, while Enyi Doris Mokobia thanked David Edevbie for standing firm on his modernization vision in the State.

Edevbie’s supporters from the 25 LGAs were present at the gathering with leaders such as Mr Chiedu Ebie, immediate past SSG, Chief Itiakpo (Malik) Ikpokpo, Hon. Vincent Uduaghan, Olorogun Dr Isaac Akpoveta, Hon. Erhiatake Ibori-Suenu, Rear Admiral John Kpokpogri (Rtd), and Pastor Champion Kpateghe, amongst others, were also in attendance.

The Edevbie supporters were earlier at the Osubi airport in Warri to receive him on arrival. Olorogun David Edevbie took time to have a handshake with all that gathered at the reception, indicating that he is very humble and friendly.
