The Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Ndudi Elumelu, has commended the Judgment of the Governorship Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Asaba on Friday, September 20, 2019, which affirmed the victory of Senator Okowa as the winner of the March 9, 2019 Governorship election in the State.

Hon. Elumelu, in a Statement from the office of the Minority Leader, House of Representative, National Assembly Complex, Abuja on Friday, September 20, described the tribunal Judgment as well deserved, saying the people of Delta State spoke with one voice by voting massively for the Governor in the last Governorship election in the State.

The Minority Leader noted that the people of the State clearly demonstrated their preference for Senator Okowa, based on what the Governor achieved across the three senatorial districts, where he established proactiveness, sincerity, unity of purpose, transparency, prudence and the fear of God with the people oriented projects he delivered, adding that Deltans could not have voted for whom they have not tested and confirmed his proven capabilities.

“It was an election that complied in all ramification with the INEC guideline and was in consonance with the Electoral act, and the Tribunal was only doing the needful by affirming the election of Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa as the authentic winner of the election.
