AHEAD of the 2015 general elections, a political pressure group, Proper Inheritance Political Associates (PIPA) from Warri North, Warri South and Warri South-West has endorsed Chief Godwill Obielum to be the next Governor of Delta State.
PIPA in a statement signed by the Chairman of PIPA , Chief Sam Eyengho, the Tieyemewei of Gbaramatu Kingdom, the Secretary , Prince Pecchia Egodo and the public relations Officer, Mr. Eugene Eyube said Deltans should support Chief Obielum because he is capable to provide people-oriented leadership in the state.
“The call” on Chief Obielum to contest for the Governorship position and for Deltans to support Chief Obielum, “was necessitated by the need for a knowledgeable and experienced achiever to take over and build on the enviable legacies Dr. Uduaghan has built in all spheres of Delta State.”
According to the statement, “Chief Godwill Obielum, is de-tribilised, matured, peace loving, experienced and a seasoned security guru,” adding, “he is the person who can bring unity to the different political divides and ethnic nationalities in the state.”
Chief Sam Eyengho further stated, “these calls are borne out of the conviction that only a synergy of focused and sincere politicians can move Delta State to enviable position in this nation.”
While urging Deltans to be peaceful, Chief Eyengho reiterated that it was important for Deltans to support Chief Godwill Obielum noting that it was a good development that Deltans are clamouring for Chief Obielum to be the next Governor of the state.
