Governor Oborevwori Predicts Victory for PDP Ahead Delta LG Polls


…says he believes in free, fair, credible elections.

Governor Sheriff Oborevwori, has predicted victory for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chairmanship and Councillorship candidates in the July 13, 2024 Local Government Council elections in the state.

Governor Oborevwori gave the prediction at the grand finale and mega rally of the party held at the Cenotaph, Asaba on Wednesday, July 10, 2024.

He commended the party’s candidates for following his footsteps by campaigning from community to community, unit to unit and ward to ward.

He said that the mega rally has afforded him the opportunity to campaign for the party’s candidates in Asaba and thanked the party’s founding fathers for their continuous support.

The Governor at the event, took a swipe at a former Governorship candidate in the state, for going to a live television programme to allege that the election would be rigged.

According to the Governor, it was unfortunate that those who could not win their polling units in an election where they were candidates could allege rigging in an election that was yet to be conducted.

“I was watching Arise Television yesterday and Labour Party candidate for the 2023 Governorship election in Delta State, who couldn’t secure up to 50,000 votes in the last Governorship election is already cooking up allegations of rigging in the Saturday Local Government Council elections.
