Siakpere takes Oborevwori’s Campaign to St Peter Claver’s College 51st Inter House Sports


A frontline supporter of Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori Governorship ambition, Mr John Ewhubare Siakpere has yet appealed to Okpe sons and daughters to support their son, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori in order for him to emerge as the next Governor of Delta State.

Siakpere whose support group has been in the forefront of promoting the ambition of Oborevwori and all PDP candidates for the 2023 election, reiterated this call at the 51st Annual Inter House Sports Competition of St Peter Claver’s College, Aghalokpe held on Saturday, February 11, 2023.

Speaking at the event, Mr Siakpere who is the Patron of White house and special guest of honour, assured guests and other dignitaries present that Rt. Hon Sheriff Oborevwori would improve the educational sector of the state and attract development not only to Okpe kingdom but to Delta state in general.

Siakpere represented by Hon Donald Akpojohare, said, “Dear parents, members of the old students association and invited guests, though, this is not a political gathering, we cannot shy away from politics as the issue of the moment. I want to seize this medium to appeal to my Okpe brothers and sisters to embrace and support our brother, seeking the position of Governor of Delta State. This is beyond political affiliation but purely about Okpe interest. Charity, the popular saying goes, begins at home, I plead with everyone in Okpe land to support Rt. Sheriff Oborevwori in the interest of greater Okpe. I am not canvassing for support for a political party here but for your own son and brother, Sheriff Oborevwori, who is a leading candidate for the Office of the Governor of Delta State, in the election coming up on Saturday, March 11th, 2023”.

Adding that, “My plea is premised on the patriotic conviction that Delta State Governor of Okpe stock will have no choice but to help to address the palpable underdevelopment and nauseating infrastructural shortages in Okpe land. Okpe kingdom is pathetically lacking behind in modernization and civilization and God, the ever merciful, has given us this opportunity on a platter of gold. I plead that we seize the opportunity, that the 2023 elections has offered us as a people, who have suffered age long marginalisation, deprivation and neglect in infrastructural and human capacity development, by making sure that we support and vote for our own Sheriff Oborevwori to win the election as governor on March 11th, 2023”.

“This is the only option to secure our future and that of the unborn generations. I pray that we don’t miss this chance because only God knows when it will come our way again. This plea is extended to other ethnic nationalities in Delta State. We have been supporting them and we are begging them to support us this time”, he added.
