The Commissioner stressed that the APC gubernatorial candidate has made Delta State to look like a state without sound principles where anyone can just come from overseas or wake up one morning and say he wants to be governor.

He noted that Ogboru has been pursuing a questionable political agenda right from the time of the administrations of Chief James Ibori, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan and now the present Governor, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, filing one petition to another, right from Election Tribunals to Appeal and Supreme courts, thereby dragging the state into series of avoidable litigations.
