Monarchs Want Delta Central To Produce Next Governor.

Traditional rulers in the Delta North Senatorial District have backed the Delta Central lobby group’s campaign to elect Delta State’s next governor in 2023.

When the Delta Central 2023 (DC-23) advocacy group paid them a consultation visit in Asaba, the State capital, on Saturday, the Delta North tradition rulers expressed their approval.

On behalf of the monarchs, the Asagba of Asaba, His Majesty Obi Prof. Chike Edozie, and the Obi of Abavo kingdom, His Majesty Uche Irenuma, said they were fully supportive of the governorship seat rotation based on senatorial districts, noting that the DC-23 visit was similar to the one they paid to Delta Central eight years ago.

They said, “As traditional rulers, we cannot relocate to other destinations as the ordinary person will do. Delta State and our various kingdoms are where we belong to.

“Wherever you belong, you have to create an atmosphere of peace because when there is peace there is progress. DC-23, to be candid, the Delta North people led by HRM Obi Prof. Chike Edozie Asagba of Asaba have been working on a template since the advent of this democratic era. Our political class led by Chief Benjamin Elue, former Deputy Governor and our respected Governor, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, who is basically the leader of the political class, have not come to tell us that there is a change of plan”.

Speaking further, the Asagba of Asaba said, “What I meant as change of plan is because we supported our son, the present governor on the platform that it is the turn of our senatorial district. Since nobody has come to us that the plan has changed, we are giving the DC-23 the blank assurance that the way you received us and the support you gave to us when we crisscrossed the country is that same support we will give to you”.

DC-23’s Chairman, Chief Ighoyota Amori, has previously indicated that the organization was a lobbying group made up of Peoples Democratic Party members in the Delta Central Senatorial District.
