Speaking after the event, Edevbie said the unanimous approval and blessings of the royal fathers was highly significant for his Governorship bid.

On his plans for the development of Delta State, Edevbie lamented that, currently, there are thousands of youths in both Delta Central as well and Delta North and South who are roaming the streets due to the dearth of industries and employment opportunities.

He assured the Royal fathers that as Governor he will work hard to bring back the industrial economy for which Delta Central was hitherto known just as he would do in other parts of the state.

Earlier in the occasion, Director General of the David Edevbie Campaign Organisation, Chief Clement Ofuani, told the royal fathers that Edevbie is well accepted across his home Delta North as well as other parts of the state as Deltans widely acknowledge his proven high administrative skills, experience and capacity for the socio-economic development of the state.
