Okubor Puts Pressure On Omo-Agege By Asking Him To Make The Call2 min read
Former Chief of Staff to the Governor of Delta State, Dr. Festus Okubor, has urged Senator Ovie Omo-Agege to emulate the American culture of political morality that he was brought up in by making the call to Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori following the trend of the results of the Delta Governorship election that puts the PDP candidate in an unassailable lead.
Available information shows that Oborevwori is leading 23 of the 25 LGAs in Delta State.
In an open letter to Omo-Agege, urging him to call Oborevwori, Okubor said:
My dear friend and brother,
CONGRATULATIONS PLS MAKE THE CALL.
I send very warm greetings to you and your lovely family from Ute Erumu.
I want to sincerely congratulate you for mounting a very robust campaign for the governorship of our dear state in the gubernatorial elections yesterday. Now that the elections are over, it behooves all good leaders to work together to keep our state strong and stable.
I trust that you truly love our state, and I know that you have set up the machinery to know the result of every unit in the state once it has been counted. You have been well-schooled in American electoral morality.
It is in light of all of the above that I am calling you to make that call, as Americans would say. Call Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori and congratulate him for winning the contest.
Even though INEC has not made the declaration, the results available speak of a resounding victory for your friend and brother, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori, and it will be significant for you to be the first to address him as governor-elect.
I understand how difficult it may be, but that will show you up as a very strong character, and you will be setting a great legacy and standard in our state.
Please make that call.
Your friend and brother,
Dr. Festus G. Okubor
