Ogboru who unveiled his manifesto tagged ‘Jubilee Agenda’, said “Delta is underdeveloped, something is wrong, when we have no farms to go to; when our hospitals have turned into consulting clinics; when insecurity is pervasive.

“But with the jubilee agenda, all these will become things of the past. In areas of infrastructure, security, environment, agriculture, comparative advantage, the jubilee agenda will address all.

“In the time past, we talked about councils development with N100 million grants but now because of the depreciating power of the naira, we are increasing it to N200 million.

“This is a 60 Billion Naira annual initiative, which translates to 200M Naira monthly to each of the 25 LGAs in the State. That is 5 Billion Naira monthly on a state wide basis.

“It is envisaged that over the 4 year period of the administration, this will translate to direct infrastructural development of about 500M- 600M in about 125 communities.”

“It will come under a board to be peopled by those in the councils. We are dedicating the local development initiative to youths between 20 to 40 years of age. With that initiative and N200 million each to the 25 councils development will be taking place simultaneously in the councils,” he said.

He added that the Jubilee Agenda derives from the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, SDGs, a blueprint and a call to action towards ending poverty and defeating hunger, promoting quality education, good healthcare and Justice, protecting the environment, among other critical issues and thus achieving a better, more peaceful, prosperous and sustainable life for all Deltans.
