He stated that, if the president could do so much in three years in office, it would be in the interest of the Urhobo nation to ensure that he is re-elected to attract more infrastructural developments to Delta Central and the state at large.

Speaking on the impasse that had rocked the Delta State chapter of the APC, he said: “The battle has been fought, lost, won and there is no victor and there is no vanquished.

According to him, “We didn’t go into that fight to deprive people of their right to control the party, but went into it to make sure that we took control of the party from those who would otherwise commercialize the party because we do not want a monarch or an emperor in this party.”
