“I believe Kingsley is a man of peace, a man that loves the ways of God, a man that follows the instructions of God and he’s a man that always think about the feelings of human. For so doing, the entire people sitting down here, under the leadership of the chiefs present are assuring you of full support come 2023. We are standing firm to work with Otuaro to the call, there is no fear about it. And we will make sure we spend whatever resources we have in a peaceful manner for his win.”

The Niger Delta youth leader also used the opportunity to heap praises on the administration of Dr Ifeani Okowa especially for his peaceful approach towards the now ended crisis of Aladja and Ogbe-ijoh.

Earlier, Akemotubo had informed the Niger-Delta youth leader of the need for the Diebiri/Batan community to support Barr Kingsley Otuaro in his gubernatorial ambition.

Akemotubo said: “We the team KBO have come to discuss with you on behalf of our boss Deacon Barr. Kingsley Otuaro, because we love him and we believe in him. We have been in several places for this same reason, but today we decided to sit with Engr. Don Dickson Ogugu and the good people of Diebiri/Batan community. We feel that it is time for the Delta South, precisely the Ijaws to produce the governor of Delta State come 2023. And in doing that, we have no better candidate as it stands than His Excellency DCN Barr. Kingsley Burutu Otuaro, who we know as a God-fearing man.

Pst. Arex maintains succinctly that, Barr. Kingsley Otuaro is a man of peace, love and he has proven a good hearing track record that has lots of attributes to benefit Deltans.

“Due to the scarce resources available in the state, they may not meet up your needs in hundred percent. But be rest assured that unpainted houses will be painted with gold. Though he is not Jesus, neither God, but he will do something that will consolidate the works of the present administration.”

He said: “We are all human and we must be optimistic in life because there is a possibility that tomorrow will be better than today, that is why we are here. Stressing that, Without you, there will be no possibility, so we really need your full support for Otuaro as governor come 2023.

“Not just support, for we have seen you as influencers and progressive people that is not just interested in taking but interested in adding value in society. So we believe; having you is our priority to achieve our dream together with your families and communities. It is doable and it is possible.”
