Electoral Process Is Very Fair – Okowa

Delta State governor, Ifeanyi Okowa said the victory of Sheriff Oborevwori in the governorship election showed a very fair electoral process in the state.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), on Monday, declared Oborevwori the winner of the March 18 gubernatorial election.

Oborevwori garnered 360,234 votes to overcome Ovie Omo-Agege, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who polled 240,229 votes.

Okowa, speaking on Oborevwori’s victory said it was an indication that PDP was still in-charge of the state.

According to him, the people “came out and voted massively for the PDP” because of his administration’s achievements and the character of the party’s candidate.

Okowa said, “We lost four LGAs, but we were able to get victory in 21 out of the 25 LGAs. And we got the overall victory with about 120,000 votes margin which is a clear attestation that PDP is in commanding control of the state electoral process.

“As much as security agencies did do, we had some incidences on Saturday and that is unfortunate because in Ughelli north, one of our strongholds, voters were attacked and injured. And eleven polling units had to be cancelled.

“One of our agents was also shot dead in another place. But despite all these, the people came out and voted massively for the PDP.

“By and large, the electoral process was very fair. INEC officials, collation official and the security agencies did do their best.”
