Mr. Ojougboh assured the mammoth crowd of party members and supporters from the three senatorial districts of the state, that he will only do one tenure if voted into office as governor come 2019, adding that “When we win, the government is going to be for everyone, we are our brothers keeper, we are going to adopt a method that will involve everyone through local content and participatory democracy.”

Also speaking, a former Delta state PDP chairman and chieftain of the APC in Delta central, Mr. Austin Ogbabunor, called for a total support for the governorship aspirant and the return of President Buhari, even as he admonished all members of the party to register for and get their PVCs, adding that “Refusal to register for your PVC and cast you vote during the 2019 general elections means you have denied yourself the right to choose who will govern you.”

APC chieftains who spoke on behalf of the three senatorial districts of the state assured the governorship aspirant that they are solidly behind him in his ambition to run for the office of the governor saying that in no distance time more defection from the PDP would be witnessed from across the state.

The speakers noted that APC is a party known for transparency and delivering of dividends of democracy as such they won’t have any regret throwing their weights behind Ojougboh’s candidacy as he is more qualified to occupy the office of the governor come 2019.

Meanwhile, Mr. Cairo Ojougboh on Friday unveiled his governorship campaign tagged, “Operation Rescue Delta” with the official commissioning of his campaign office in Asaba.

The commissioning which also followed with the official inauguration of the Delta chapter of the President Buhari Support Group was attended by members of the party and supporters across the state.

Speaking at the event, the APC governorship aspirant vowed to rescue Delta from what he called maladministration of the ruling PDP in the state, pledging that he will garner two million votes for the reelection of President Muhammadu Buhari.

“In line with President Buhari’s commitment to a free and fair election, here in Delta State we are equally committed to a peaceful and fair election come 2019. So I am appealing to every Deltan who is of age to go and collect his/her PVC as a patriotic citizen so that we can give our president the needed support of our two million votes.

“This event also serves as the official inauguration of the state chapter of the Buhari Support Group for the successful reelection of Mr. President come 2019. As a group, our vision is that here in Delta, we will work tirelessly to ensure we give our president two million votes for his reelection come 2019. We believe that we can achieve this aim in a free and fair election which is in line with President Muhammadu Buhari commitment to a peaceful, free and fair election where every vote count,” Ojougboh said.

According to Ojougboh, he was determined to wrestle power from the ruling PDP government in the state, stressing that APC in Delta is prepared to take over the affairs of the state in 2019, saying that if elected governor, he will do a tenure in office in line with the political accord between the three senatorial zones in the state for rotation of political power.

“We have a standing political arrangement here in Delta state that power will rotate within the three political senatorial districts. Delta Central have done its own eight years, so also Delta South has done its eight years. Now Delta North is presently doing its eight years. The first term of Delta North tenure is what the PDP government is presently doing. But now that the PDP has expired, and so the APC is taking over to complete the eight years of Delta North.”
