The immediate past Senior Special Assistance (SSA) to Governor Ifeanyi Okowa on Inter-Party Relations and Delta State Chairman, Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP), Chief Efe Tobor, in a joint statement with the CUPP spokesman who doubles as the Delta state KOWA Party Chairman, Prince Henry.E.Eze (JP), have applauded the Tribunal judgement that affirmed the Victory of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as the winner of the March, 2019 Guber election in the state, saying it is an affirmation of confidence by Deltans.
While addressing the newsmen on Wednesday in CUPP State Secretariat Asaba, Delta State capital, they congratulated Ifeanyi Okowa on his resounding victory in the governorship election petition tribunal.
According to them, “They believe that the ruling was a well deserved one as it reflected the will and mandate of all Deltans. There is no doubt that Okowa’s achievements in his first tenure endeared CUPP to endorse him as our consensus candidate during the 2019 governorship election in Delta State”.
“We had contended then that Okowa has performed creditably and does not need appeal to ethnic sentiments to be returned. He had revamped our sports infrastructure which had been abandoned, faced the issue of flooding in Asaba squarely, rehabilitated certain roads awarded and abandoned by the previous administration.
He had begun roads revolution across the entire state, improved the airport which was shabbily done by the same previous administration”, they added.
