Igbuya declares APC will never rule Delta

04 July 2016, 09:50

Abuja – Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly, Monday Igbuya, has declared the All Progressives Congress (APC) will not win elections in the state.

The state is viewed as a stronghold of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) since the retention of democracy in 1999.

Igbuya said this was not about to change anytime soon, advising APC leaders in the state to “stop building castles in the air.”

“Stop dreaming. APC cannot win in Delta State,” he declared.

While commending Governor Ifeanyi Okowa for his administrative style, Igbuya claimed the APC had disappointed Nigerians at home and abroad since ascending to power during the general elections last year.

PDP retained leadership of the oil-rich Delta State during the polls.

Okowa polled 724 680 votes to beat his closest rival, Great Ogboru of the Labour Party, who got 130 028 votes.

APC’s O’tega Emerhor finished third with 67 825 votes.

“Delta State is one of the most performing states in this dispensation,” Igbuya bragged.

He enjoined Deltans at home and abroad to join hands with the governor to develop the state.

“Governor Ifeanyi Okowa is committed to the growth and development of Delta State,” he added.

He described Okowa as a national “benchmark” for outstanding achievements.

“Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa is a dogged politician imbued with inspiring developmental and intellectual zeal. He remains the measurement of positive leadership, courage, good governance, accountability and performance in the country.”
