No alternative to Chief Osiobe Okotie in Delta state- Sanco Ese
Whistleblowers in an interview with the Director of Media and publicity to Chief Osiobe Okotie a Governorship hopeful on the platform of Delta State All Progressive congress, Hon Sanco Ese, who is also a party chieftain and a right activist in the Niger Delta region has spoken on why he wants Chief Osiobe Okotie to take over the job of governing Delta state come 2019.
According to him he said Delta state need a man like Osiobe since the present government has failed the people of Delta woefully
“You will recall that since this administration came on board it has been one form of systemic failure or the other ranging from Incompetence to flagrant disregard of the constitution and welfare of our people, the governor runs Delta state like a personal estate without consultation with stakeholders, How can a governor just wake up one morning and sack over 3000 workers? recently he sold Delta line without the input and knowledge of Deltans to his crony despite call which fell on deaf ears for revocation by Deltans. Our hospitals are in worst state, Salaries of workers have not been paid for 14months, no single mega projects on ground,no economic policies put in place to drive development in the state, no foreign investment,As am talking to you companies are leaving in droves as a result of bad governance, “where is flour mill, Topfeeds, Eternit Zartech, Delta glass to mention but few? they have all packed up he retorted” the challenges facing the state require people with extraordinary ideas to put things right.
He described Osiobe as being in a better position to transform the state.
Chief Osiobe who is also the 1st deputy president general of UPU is an oil magnate and property expert,he is among one of the few Deltans who is detribalised and has the capacity to turn around the fortunes of Delta state.
He continued: “I’ve been part of the people who have been in the forefront of the struggle for the betterment of my people as an activist, I have also actively participated in the fight to bring about good and people oriented leadership in Delta state from inception in 2009, Deltans has since then be ruled like a conquered people by a cabal and we are determined to bring on board people with integrity, people who are already a success story in their various endeavors that can turn ,Asaba, Sapele and Warri to commercial cities, It is sad that common streetlight is now a thing of the past despite the fact that the money Delta has received so far from the federation account can turn the state to mordern Dubai, look at the level of abandoned projects everywhere in Delta state, the Oghara Independent power plant, Sapele market, Sapele stadium, Orerokpe stadium, Sapele Amukpe road, Warri Sapele dualization and so many people oriented projects to mention but few”
” We need a young and vibrant entrepreneur to turn things around and Chief Osiobe is in a better position to do so in the health sector, education, agriculture, social services and many more, and even raise the bar if elected.”
Let me assure Deltans that his focus will be to rev up the state’s economy.
Let me also quickly Dismiss insinuations that OSIOBE is a stooge to anybody or party, those making such spurious and unsubstantiated accusations are opponents that are already scared of his acceptability across the state.
On the claims that his ambition would disrupt the zoning arrangement among the three zones; North, Central and South in the state , he said zoning has never been a consideration for electing governors in the state under APC. Even in Delta state PDP all zones have always fought for the ticket of the party since 2009.
He said: “Election in Delta State APC will never be won on the basis of zoning, but on merit. Argument about zoning is being planted and spread by small people who don’t believe in merit. It is an argument that is deceptive and should be discountenanced by those who want the best for the state. Competence, efficiency and integrity should be the requirements and those are what we are offering Deltans, these are what Osiobe Okotie stands for”
OSIOBE hails from, Ughelli north of Delta central, His governorship ambition is not an ethnic agenda. The real voters don’t know zoning; it is a contraption of some politicians who are afraid of merit. I see him basically as somebody from Delta State, somebody interested to serve.
“The argument against him is that he come from the Central zone and that he is not a politician. But rather than be a minus, those are his strength because integrity and merit are going to count. He has these and he is bringing them on board in the interest of the generality of the entire people of Delta State.
He is the David of our time, a man specially anointed by God to rescue Delta from this clueless regime, he is not corrupt,he has not done any government contract before and has also not been linked to any form of electoral fraud or deceit against his people.
In my opinion, these are the new generation of leaders that can turn things around and usher in the Delta state of our dream.this is why am supporting him
