Delta State Governor, Sheriff Oborevwori has said that his administration is a product of divine choice and would continue to ensure fiscal discipline for the overall development of the state.

Speaking at the thanksgiving, Governor Oborevwori said giving thanks to God is a scriptural injunction to every Christian, adding that thanksgiving was not an event but should be the lifestyle of every believer.
He commended all fathers of faith for their prayers and support during the last general elections, saying “may I use this opportunity to appreciate all our fathers of faith for their labour of love and steadfastness to partner with my administration to deliver good governance to our people.
“Thanksgiving helps us to put things in proper perspectives for there will be more things going for us than against us. No matter how tough or difficult our present circumstances may be, it is important we do not forget this good injunction.
“Today as a body of believers in the state, we have come to count our blessings and return all glory to God who is the giver of all good things. What I have gone through in all my pre-election matters is just God and God saw us through the tribunal and the Appeal Court”.
Governor Oborevwori further said; “in the six months of our administration, we have ensured prudent management of our finances and we have mobilised our contractors to site. We have continued to ensure that while funding ongoing projects we will also introduce new ones.
“When people are increasing their budget, we reduced our own by 12 percent because of fiscal discipline and by the grace of God, this administration will do what is good for the people of the state.
“As your Chief servant, I am mindful thay this administration is a product of divine choice and I will continue to govern this state with the fear of God and ensure transparency and accountability in all aspects of governance.”

Ignore The Rumour, Obi Not Quitting Labour Party, Berates Mischief Makers
The Peter Obi Media Reach, POMR wishes to outrightly dismiss trending fake and fallacious news story suggesting that he was parting ways with the Labour Party.
This is not true and it did not originate from Obi or the Obedient Movement but from mischief makers bent on sowing the seed of discord in the party.
In a statement from his Media Aide, Michael Jude Nwolisa, these rising misdemeanours on the party did not start today as they set out to destroy and disorganize the party all to get at Obi and derail the inevitable journey of rescuing Nigeria.
Presently our principal is preoccupied with making Nigeria work not on partisan politics which ended on October 26, 2023, when the Supreme Court of the land took their final decision on the general elections.
Those bent on creating a crisis in the Labour Party are enemies of democracy wishing for the failed status quo to remain.
OBI’s focus at the moment is on creating an environment where democracy is to be practised according to the defined tenets not the rascality and all forms of impunity prevalent in the country today
Peter Obi therefore would like to assure Nigerians, particularly the Obidient family that his way with Labour is unshaken and intact and that the struggle to rescue Nigeria from the criminal gangs holding it down will not stop until it’s achieved through the will of the Nigerian people.
