Gov Oborevwori And The Finger Of God, Glorious One Year In Office

By Fred Latimore Oghenesivbe, Esq

Today, His Excellency, the Governor of Delta State, Rt Hon Sheriff Oborevwori, JP, the First family of Delta, together with the Deputy Governor, Sir Monday Onyeme and his family, former governors, senior government officials, elected representatives at all levels under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, political appointees across board, and Deltans from all walk of life converged at the Living Faith Church to celebrate the exemplary leadership of the governor, and to thank God for his one year anniversary as governor of the state.

Too many things to thank God for; from the pre and post election 38 cases victories at the Courts below to the Supreme Court of Nigeria, the successful flag off and ongoing construction of three mega flyovers and pedestrian bridges at DSC roundabout, PTI junction and Enerhen junction, massive construction of the Ughelli-Asaba dual roads projects, completion of Emevor-Orogun road, payment of local government pensions, completion of the State High Court complex and seversl roads projects across the three senatorial districts.

Worthy of mention is the prudent management of state resources by governor Oborevwori. His consummate leadership style, integrity and dogged capacity to govern the state effectively within the last one year amazes his detractors, as well his strict fiscal discipline devoid of wasteful spendings and frivolous allocations of state resources.

In one single year of monumental achievements in infrastructure development across the state, governor Oborevwori did not borrow one Kobo from any bank or financial institutions in Nigeria, or anywhere in the world.

It is not unlikely that debt servicing is also part of his renewed efforts to make Delta State debt free and return her to a front line vibrant economy that would compete favourably with Lagos State in terms of Gross Domestic Product, GDP. Delta State is currently number 5 in GDP ranking, while Lagos retained number one in Nigeria.

Governor Oborevwori’s God given wisdom and superlative foresight is inestimable, judging from his mesmerizing charisma and uncommon humility which had endeared him to the hearts of Deltans across board.
