Tribunal Triumph: Gov Oborevwori Expresses Gratitude to God

Governor Sheriff Oborevwori of Delta State has expressed his gratitude to God during a thanksgiving service at the Government House Chapel, Asaba, following his victory at the Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal. He dedicated the triumph to God and called on opposition parties and their members to collaborate in the development of Delta for the benefit of all citizens.

Oborevwori highlighted that the victory was not unexpected, as it reflected the will and resolve of Delta residents to support the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). He emphasized that the verdict marked a turning point in their quest to establish enduring democracy in the state.

“Today’s judgment at the tribunal marks a turning point in our quest to enthrone an enduring democracy in our state. I am very happy and I know that Deltans are happy because the scriptures have been confirmed again that it is God that appoints leaders. We are here to thank God for giving us this victory in spite of all opposition. We have come here to return all the glory to God because God is not a man that He would lie,’’ Oborevwori said.

The governor acknowledged that God had shown mercy to him and the state’s people, vowing to remain a servant leader and fulfill the expectations of those who supported him. He stressed the need for unity among political leaders to advance the development of Delta State.

“I am willing to serve all of you so take me as your own because it is God that gives power. That God that made it possible for Joseph in a foreign land is the same God will make us lead this state for eight years. The victory is for all the people of Delta and we dedicate it to Almighty God. This victory didn’t come as a surprise because we won in 21 out of 25 local government areas,’’ the governor stressed.

“For us to win in 21 local government areas out of 25 local government areas shows that God is with us and when you have God, nothing is impossible.

“My advice to my other brothers is that they should join us to advance Delta so that our state can develop further,’’ Oborevwori added.

The Governorship Election Tribunal affirmed Governor Oborevwori’s election and dismissed petitions filed by opposition candidates, Chief Ovie Omo-Agege of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Olorogun Kenneth Gbagi of the Social Democratic Party (SDP).

The three-member panel of judges led by Justice C. H Ahuchaogu ruled that Omo-Agege’s allegations in the petitions lacked merit and could not be proven beyond reasonable doubt.

Both the APC and SDP candidates have indicated their intention to file appeals in response to the tribunal’s judgments.
