Comrade Sunny Ofehe, 2019 APC Governorship Aspirant in Delta State

Frontline governorship aspirant on the platform of All Progressive Congress, APC in Delta State, Comrade Sunny Ofehe has said that infrastructural development in Europe is not a rocket science but borne out of patriotism of those who vie for leadership positions.

Ofehe stated this shortly after meeting with former President of Christian Association of Nigeria, (CAN) and Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor at Word of Life Bible Church (International Gospel Centre), in Warri where he worshipped last Sunday.

According to the aspirant, the gospel of patriotism must be preached at all times, because according to him, the problem of infrastructure deficit in the country is due to lack of patriotism.

According to Ofehe, “Development is not a rocket science in Europe, it is borne out of passion and patriotism. And we can replicate that in our state if those vying for leadership positions are patriotic. If the governors that led this state where patriotic enough, we would have been better of”.

He said that it is a shame that Delta state with its huge oil resources have remained under develop with no viable economic project to boost her Internal Generated Revenue profile.

Ofehe who expressed displeasure that leaders see development of local communities as favour being done the electorate said; “It is shame that we live in a state that God has bless yet there is nothing to write home about”.

The Governorship aspirant said he was at Word of Life Bible Church to fellowship with a longstanding mentor and friend whom he holds in high regards and to intimate him of his governorship ambition.
