Ahead of the 2019 gubernatorial election, a coalition of Youths from Delta North Senatorial District of the State have declared their support for the governorship candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Dr. Cairo Ojougboh. The youths made their declarations during a meeting with Dr. Cairo Ojougboh at the country home of the former lawmaker in Agbor, Ika South LGA.
The Youths in a Communique signed by the National Coordinator of the group , Mr. Odita Sunday and the National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Frank Oshanugor and made available to journalists in Agbor, said the group is very mindful of the calibre of people who seek political offices to represent the people before throwing their weight behind their candidacy and have found Dr. Cairo Ojougboh worthy of their support owing to his strong political ideology of truth, transparencyand honesty.
According to him, ” Dr. Cairo Ojougboh has an enviable political pedigree that is well known to us and we have no doubt of his ability to deliver the true dividends of democracy to the people of Anioma in particular and Delta State in general. By this visit, we members of Anioma Youths Network for Development, A.Y.N.D are pledging our total support to his ambition of becoming the next governor of Delta state”.
Formally receiving the group and the award of Excellence and outstanding leadership quality presented to him, Dr. Ojougboh thanked them for finding him worthy. He expressed deep appreciation for their support, award and for keying into his political ideology of TRUTH at all times devoid of compromises. He said “I have a brand to sell and that brand is Truth. The kind of truth that will abolish the poverty, corruption and misgovernance from Delta State. I want to assure you that if voted to serve, as government, after two years, the mark of development will be there for all to see. We will build infrastructure that will stand the test of time, ensure that the infrastructures are equitably distributed and resources judiciously utilized.
Dr. Ojougboh urged members of the group to be law abiding citizens and good ambassadors of truth at any given time while holding on to the one-man-one-vote gospel. He said with one man one vote, the rigging strategies and machinations of the PDP will be thwarted.
In a closing remark, the National Coordinator, Mr. Odita Sunday said APC is taking over Delta State from next year. He said the group have set up several grassroot committees to work assidiously underground for Dr. Cairo Ojougboh and ensure that the entire Anioma nation and Delta State in general queue behind him. The awareness campaign, he said will be from house to house, schools to schools, markets to markets to gather support for him to emerge and win.
