The Special Adviser to the Executive Governor of Delta State on legislative matters, Hon Efe Ofobruku, has hailed Wednesday’s January 8, 2020 Supreme Court revalidation of the re-election of Senator Dr Ifeanyi Okowa as the duly elected governor of Delta State.
Speaking to newsmen at Asaba the state capital, Ofobruku noted that the unanimous verdict of the Supreme Court judges describing the Chief Ogboru suit as lacking in merit, wasting of the courts time and a mere academic exercise, further reenforced the grassroots acceptance of the Smart governor by majority of voters in Delta State.
Ofobruku said “the Judiciary has again proved itself strong in the protection of democracy and the rule of law in Nigeria. I have never entertained any iota of doubt about today’s outcome because it was clear that Deltans voted overwhelmingly to re-elect the Governor”.
“Governor Okowa is a man of the people and a peace-loving statesman. The decision of the supreme court will definitely go a long way to solidify the faith of the masses in the courts. I felicitate with the PDP family and Deltans at home and in the diaspora.” He stressed.
Hon Ofobruku urged the APC and Ogboru, to accept the verdict in good faith and join hands with the governor to move the state forward.
In a related development and in the mood of the victory, Hon Ofobruku equally poured encomium on the Executive Governor of Delta State His Excellency Sen. Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa for his developmental strides in the state and urged all Deltans to support his administration, adding that better days are here with with Okowa in charge.
