Delta State Governor, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Orowed Oborevwori, has again called on Political office holders to persistently serve the people with humility to the glory of God.
Governor Oborevwori spoke at a thanksgiving service in honour of the Majority Leader of the Delta State House of Assembly, Hon. Emeka Nwaobi, at St Paul’s Catholic Cathedral Church, Issele-Uku, Aniocha North Local Government Area of the State.
The Governor, who described the celebrant, Emeka Nwaobi, as a good man, urged him to continue serving God with humility.

“As we were coming here this morning, we passed through the Ogwashi-Uku stadium where the for PDP Governorship primaries in 2006, held.
“I passed through that place as a delegate then and also passed through it as Governor of the State. It is only God that can do a thing like that and it is good to give thanks to Him for whatever happens because if Okowa had become Governor in 2007 perhaps I wouldn’t have been Governor today.”
In his remark, Hon. Nwaobi expressed appreciation to Governor Oborevwori and the party’s leadership for finding him worthy to serve as Majority Leader of the State House.
