Delegates of a registered political group in Delta State, FACE-TO-FACE political group have thrown their weight solidly behind Dr. Cairo Ojougboh over what they described as his astuteness and humane disposition towards good governance in the state and have urged him to run for the governorship of the state in next year’s election. They described Dr. Ojougboh as an astute politician and dependable leader strongly committed to seeing the emergence of a greater Delta state during a meeting with him at his country home in Agbor on Friday 26th January, 2018.
Spokesperson of the group, Apostle Sorokwu described Dr. Cairo Ojougboh as a Soldier of truth whom Deltans from all walks of life have come to really admire and appreciate in recent times. “Sir, we want to use the opportunity created by this meeting to appreciate you immensely for your good works towards the development of our state and categorically want to let you know that we want to work with you to keep Delta alive. We call on you to contest the next governorship election in the state to save Delta state from the mess it is enmeshed in, in the present administration”.
Other members of the group who spoke at the meeting include Prof Sunday Akporoi who acknowledging Dr Ojougboh said, “Akinuwa, we came to fraternize and partnership with you and to call on you to run for the governorship position of Delta State in order to rescue our state from the hands of corrupt cabals and move the sate forward. “Sir, we have no doubt but strongly believed that you have all it takes to liberate Deltans from the shackles of bad leadership in the state and this has prompted our call for you to run”.
Welcoming the group, Dr Cairo Ojougboh thanked them for their visit, foresight and for having great confidence in him, saying, power belongs to God and same God will enthrone a good leader in the state in 2019.
Speaking further, Dr. Ojougboh made mention of salient issues in the state that require urgent attention that boil down to the obviously visible abysmal performance of the present administration in the state. He frowned at a situation where a government that preaches prosperity for all Deltans will be the same government buying guns and fire arms for anti cult groups to molest innocent Deltans and used as tools for election rigging. Dr. Ojougboh said all these must stop as he has discussed with the Inspector General of police in Abuja to address the ill.
Speaking further, he said as a Soldier of truth, “I will look into your request and call but I want to assure you that I will continue to defend the downtrodden and fight for the less privileged in our land at all times”.
