The Director General of the Delta State PDP Campaign Organization in the 2023 general elections, Rt. Hon. Funkekeme Solomon, has lauded the judiciary for protecting the sanctity of voters in Delta State, saying that in dismissing the petition of Senator Ovie Omo-Agege challenging the election of Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori, the Appeal Court has sustained the faith of voters in the electoral process.
Solomon who is also the Senior Policy Adviser to Governor Oborevwori said Deltans are elated that their decision on who should be their leader has been upheld by the Appeal Court.
He said how all the political parties conducted their campaigns for the governorship election made it implausible that any candidate other than Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori will emerge winner.
“Only the PDP undertook real campaigns. Omo-Agege and APC were banking on what they thought would be the use of instruments of federal apparatus to allocate the election to them. It doesn’t work in Delta State and I am glad the Appeal Court affirmed this in their ruling,” the Senior Policy Adviser said, noting that Omo-Agege could win in only four local government areas out of 24 in the state.
“Once again, I call on Senator Ovie Omo-Agege to acknowledge reality and cease his litigations that will lead nowhere. This is Delta State and it is home for all is”, Solomon said.
