According to the governor, “In the last four years, we received a lot of accolades for our achievements; we had no doubt that we would emerge victorious because we have God and we have the people on our side. The elections are over, it is time for reconciliation, it is time to build.

“I have greater challenge in my second term and it is my desire to surpass the things we did in our first tenure; I will like to leave office in 2023 happier because, Deltans are happier, more united and we have a stronger state.”

Commending the CAN and the NLC for the roles they played in stabilising his administration and ensuring his victory at the polls, the governor noted that the congratulatory visits were tonic for a stronger Delta State to be achieved in the next four years have started yielding fruits.
