Oborevwori prepared to advance Delta, provide dividends of democracy – Okowa’s EAC
…Says his inner willpower, faith in God underestimated by detractors
Governor-Elect and award winning Speaker of Delta State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Sheriff Francis Oborevwori, is adequately prepared to provide quality leadership that would upscale the gains of democracy for the good people of Delta State.
The assurance was re-echoed on Wednesday in Asaba, by the Executive Assistant on Communications to Delta State Governor, Olorogun Barr Fred Latimore Oghenesivbe, while speaking to newsmen at the end of tenure valedictory interactive session organized by the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Civil Engagement and Civil Society, Activist Rex Anighoro.
He said the incoming governor has been a system player in the inner workings of government, coupled with his wealth of experience as the longest serving speaker with genuine desire to serve, assuring that there shall be no dull moments once the mantle of leadership shifts from the incumbent governor, Senator Dr Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa, CON, to Rt Hon Sheriff Francis Oborevwori, JP, on May 29.
Oghenesivbe said Oborevwori’s detractors were prepared to destroy his reputation and end his political career before the governorship election, but that God showed up, coupled with the deployment of strategic communication to deflate and explain the facts which invariably kept the opposition at the back seat throughout the electioneering period.
He said strategic communication cum effective crisis communication management is an integral part of governance in Constitutional Democracies; essentially meant to protect, project and sustain the integrity and pedigree of political gladiators, leaders, political office holders and key players in government, as well as promote government policies, programmes and achievements.
Oghenesivbe disclosed that the Office of the Executive Assistant on Communications to Delta State Governor, has professionally, doggedly and tenaciously deployed strategic communication in the past six years to either neutralize or resolve multifaceted propagandas and media onslaughts sponsored by opposition parties and their leaders against the state government and the governor, while political communication strategies was intensified before, during and after the just concluded elections to resolve critical crisis communication strategies triggered by opposition political parties and their failed candidates.
“The incoming governor, Rt Hon Sheriff Francis Oborevwori, has inestimable political willpower that will enable him govern Delta State effectively and efficiently. And as a man with good conscience, his decisions and leadership style shall endear him to the hearts of all Deltans within the first one hundred days in office.
“The M.O.R.E agenda is a proof that he’s prepared to effectively lead and govern the state, create job and wealth for our people, develop infrastructure and grow the state economy for eight years.
“Oborevwori’s detractors obviously underestimated his political willpower and Faith in God. He is an overcomer and God’s Grace beneficiary, his leadership charisma is absolutely positive and magnetic. He’s bold and courageous.
“The opposition candidates in the just concluded election could not present tangible and convincing manifestos or agendas to the electorates, whereas Oborevwori’s M.O.R.E agenda was well articulated and adopted during electioneering campaigns by the good people of Delta State. And as a man who honour his words, all his electioneering campaign promises shall be fulfilled,” Oghenesivbe assured.
Barrister Oghenesivbe who is also the Delta PDP Campaign Council spokesperson commended Activist Rex Anighoro, for his quality service to the state and to governor Okowa, saying that he was able to effectively explain government policies, programmes and achievements to the civil society Community in the past eight years of this administration.
“Rex Anighoro is one of Delta’s best, doing well in his calling as rights activist, promoter of social justice, and indeed a unique fellow in civil engagements. I wish him well and I have no doubt in my mind that he will continue to be a valuable asset to Delta State and Nigeria,” Oghenesivbe added.
