“Truth is stronger than fiction. Agbor has House of Assembly, Commissioner, Special Adviser, DSIEC Commissioner, Chairman, Post Primary Education Board, P.D.P Chairman, 2 Members of State Advisory Board amongst others.
“Abavo is left with only DESOPADEC Board Member. Our call for the Council Chairmanship Seat to be retained in Abavo is for fairness, justice, equity and harmonious coexistence. We will continue to engage our brothers and sisters from Agbor Kingdom to see reason with us because the rotation of elective positions between the two Kingdoms have continue to breed peaceful coexistence for decades.
The rotational arrangement should be sustained. Kudos to our foremost Leader, Sen, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa (CON), the Pathfinder, and author of Good Governance for Equity and Fairness Across Delta State. To our Pan Delta Governor, Hon. Elder Sheriff Oborevwori, the harvest of projects through your M. O. R. E Agenda is already dotting the landscape of the big heart State of Delta”, they said.
