Okowa Not Influencing My Decisions – Gov Oborevwori

Delta State Governor, Sheriff Oborevwori has denied reports that his government is being influenced by his predecessor, Ifeanyi Okowa.


This is as people speculated across the state that Okowa was dictating to Oborevwori and directing him on what to do.


Reacting on Sunday at the first-anniversary thanksgiving of his administration at the Living Faith Church, Ibusa Road, Asaba, Oborevwori said the claim of being under Okowa’s dictate was not true.

“I’m hearing many things. I want to make it clear that Okowa is not influencing my decisions. I acknowledged his wise counsel which has helped me a lot.”


Oborevwori re-emphasized that his emergence as the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in 2023 and his eventual victory at the poll was the work of God.


According to Okowa, in spite of the strident opposition he faced as an aspirant and eventually flag-bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2023 governorship poll in the state as typified by 38 legal challenges to his aspiration, his administration had turned the state into a potent construction site with a total of 317 projects across the state.


“A few days from now, we shall commence the inauguration of some of the roads and other projects in other sectors for the world to see what we have accomplished in the last one year by the grace of God.

“The past year has been one of trials and triumphs, tests and testimonies and adversity and hope; through it all God has been very faithful.

“Recently, God also showed Himself strength in my family by giving us a mighty deliverance in a car accident. Indeed, I owe Him a debt of gratitude for His unfailing love, goodness, protection and sustaining grace,” he said.
