*Says Ogboru is their own, that this God’s appointed time to rule Delta
Thousands of Igbo Traders, Market women under the Obidients Movement, yesterday throw their weight behind the Delta State Governorship Candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, describing him as a true brother to the Igbos.
The Traders and market women under the umbrella of Ohaneze Ndigbo Traders and Independent Workers Association (ONTIWA) Delta Central chapter, on behalf of the thousands of traders, said the Igbos are the most populous in Nigeria, and that Warri and Uvwie is not left out, noting that they will do all they can to ensure their votes go to Chief Ogboru come Saturday March 11th.
Speaking on behalf of the Igbo Traders, Chief Oba Nweke said, “We are sure of 35 percent vote because we the Igbos are the most populous in the country including Warri, Uvwie and environs. So this time around, we will vote Chief Great Ogboru as our new governor of Delta state come Saturday governorship election because he is Igbo inclined so he is our own blood.
“We will vote for him and God has already crowned him and nobody will take it from you. We are going to do a lot of home work to ensure you are massively voted.”
Earlier the Delta state APGA governorship candidate, Chief Great Ovedje Ogboru while thanking the entire Igbo traders for their supports and promise to vote him on Saturday poll, said that he will return here to appreciate them after he has emerged winner.
He said, “Let me thank you for all you have been doing for our country Nigeria, and what you deed at the last move of the Obidients. For the country to move forward, there must be a handshake between the east and the west. So by the time you vote for APGA come Saturday March 11th, we will give ourselves the power to continue to support the Obidient Movement and the quest to make Deltans great will be actualized.
“This is not about just being a governor, it is more serious business than that. To become governor is nothing, because if you cannot advance the course of humanity, then you are not worthy to be a governor.
“We want to become governor so that we can advance the greatness and fortunes of our people. When my father passed on, the only prominent Nigerian that visited my family compound was Ikemba, Odumegwu Ojukwu.
“Some of us has been partly misunderstood in Nigeria because of propaganda and lies; but by the grace of God, the narratives will change and I am sure that the Obidient Movement have started to change that narrative.
“I know you have already decided to vote me, so I have come to say thank you. And after the victory, we will come back again to say thank you and we will build on this good relationship we have established for the betterment of Delta people all resident in the state.”
The Jubilee Campaign train further moved to Japka road, Airport road, Igbudu Market, through maicaiva market and round the entire Warri cities, including Jigbale Market in Udu local government area, to remind Markets women and Traders, that voting APGA on Saturday is to liberate Deltans.
