Comrade (Chief) Ovuozourie Macaulay
The director general, Warri Uvwie and Environs Special Area Development Agency (WUEDA), Comrade (Chief) Ovuozourie Macaulay, has described the tribunal victory of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as a reaffirmation of truth.
He said the judgment is a validation of the electoral trust reposed on the governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
According to him, the petitions by the opposition were mere distractions to divert government attention from its business of ensuring holistic development and delivering the dividends of democracy.
Macaulay, in a statement issued by his media assistant, Mr. Iteveh Ekpokpobe, in Asaba, congratulated Senator (Dr) Ifeanyi Okowa on the reaffirmation of his victory and the PDP for its commitment to the ideals of enshrining democracy on the state’s shores.
The former secretary to Delta State government, urged the All Progressive Congress (APC) to sheath it’s sword which lacks merit as stated by the tribunal’s verdict, and join hands with the ‘Prosperity Government’ to move Delta State forward.
In his words, “It is a victory for all Deltans. It is a victory for continuity. It is a victory for development. The petitions were equal to electoral gold digging, and the tribunal verdict has dismissed it for what it is, ‘lacks merit and is opportunistic’. The APC should accept defeat.”
“Our victory was a convincing one. I congratulate Deltans for the victory.” He added.
