TRIBUNAL: Only God appoints leaders, says Oborevwori

Governor Sheriff Oborevwori of Delta State has said that only God makes it possible for men to gain leadership positions.

Oborevwori stated this on Friday evening at a thanksgiving held at the Government House Chapel, Asaba in appreciation to God for his multiple victories at the Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal.

The Governor who was joined by his Deputy, Sir Monday Onyeme, former Governor of the state, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan, State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Kingsley Esiso and top government functionaries, thanked God for his triple victory at the tribunal.

The Governor said the victory was a confirmation of the people’s will and resolve to vote the PDP in Delta and urged the opposition to support the ruling party for the overall benefit of the state.

Elated Governor Oborevwori, said: “Today’s judgement at the Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal marks a turning point to our quest to enthrone an enduring democracy in our state.

“I am very happy and I know that Deltans are happy because scriptures have been confirmed again that it is God that appoints leaders.

“We are here to thank God for givng us this victory despite all opposition. We have come here to return all the glory to God because God is not a man that He should lie”.

The Governor frowned at the incessant court cases, saying; “we have come here to return all the glory to God.

“Delta is still united and God has made our victory as Deltans permanent and fully consolidated to his glory and honour.”

He said God had shown mercy to him and the people of the state and pledged his commitment to remain a servant leader.

“I am willing to serve all of you so take me as your own because it is God that gives power. That God that made it possible for Joseph in a foreign land that same God will make us lead this state for eight years.

“The victory is for all Deltans and we dedicate it to the Almighty God. This victory didn’t come as a surprise because we won in 21 out of 25 local government areas.

“More development will come to the state and we must give Deltans what they deserve for supporting us to victory.

“For us to win in 21 out of 25 shows that God is with us and when you have God, nothing can be impossible.

“My advice to my other brothers is that they should join us to advance Delta so that our state can develop further”, Governor Oborevwori said.
