“We want Delta Central to stand by their word of supporting Isoko and Delta South Senatorial District in 2031. So, on behalf of the political class and everyone in Isoko South Local Government Area, we endorse Delta Central Senatorial District for the 2023 governorship. However, remember us when it is the turn of Delta South to produce the governor in 2031.

“We want to also let you know that our governor, Senator (Dr.) Ifeanyi Okowa, has done very well in the overall development of the state. We urge you to support him to finish strong.

“Now that we have endorsed Delta Central Senatorial District for 2023 governorship, we advise you to unite the political class in your district and also prune down your aspirants for easy primary election,” he said.

Senator (Chief) Ighoyota Amori, the National Chairman of DC-23, previously indicated that the entity was a lobby group made up of PDP card-carrying members in the Delta Central Senatorial District to advocate support for the district’s governorship seat in 2023.

He noted that the DC-23 was similar to the G-3 of the Delta South Senatorial District, which was formed in 2014 to propel the election of the state’s current governor, Senator (Dr.) Ifeanyi Okowa, and the Anioma Agenda, which was formed in 2014 to propel the election of the state’s immediate past governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan.

According to him, “those who want to contest against the aspirants of Delta Central Senatorial district have their argument for the governorship seat, likewise us, but we can’t talk of zoning on ethnic lines because the state is made up of various ethnic groups like Urhobo, Ijaw, Itsekiri, Isoko, Ika, Ndokwa, Oshimili, Aniocha and others; hence, the appeal from us to maintain the zoning arrangement on the basis of senatorial districts in the state.”
