PDP, APC, choices of governorship candidates in Delta are laudable, says monarchs


The Delta North Traditional Rulers Forum, on Wednesday, commended the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) for picking their governorship candidates from Delta Central senatorial district in line with the principles of equity, justice and fair play.

Briefing newsmen after an emergency meeting of the forum held at the palace of its Chairman and Asagba of Asaba, Prof. Chike Edozien, the Vice Chairman and Obi of Abavo, HRM Uche Irenuma 11, said that the choice of the two major political parties was in line with  what Delta Traditional Rulers had been preaching.

Edozien noted that it was the principle of moving the state governorship around the three senatorial districts that had brought about the existing peace, unity and love in the State.

Also, Obi Irenuma,  thanked the political class for allowing Delta Central senatorial district to produce the governorship candidates of the major political parties, which he said would help to entrench zoning of the seat on the basis of senatorial district.

He congratulated the gubernatorial candidates of PDP and APC, Chief Sheriff Oborevwori and Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, on their emergence as flag bearers of their parties and urged other political parties who were yet to conduct their governorship primaries to also pick their gubernatorial candidates from Delta Central.
