The Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo has declared that both Delta and Akwa Ibom States should not be controlled by the opposition party.
This was as he urged people of both states to key into the progressive ideology of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Speaking when he visited both states on Monday, Osinbajo said the states have more potential which could be actualised by voting for APC candidates in the upcoming Saturday’s election.
Osinbajo, while addressing APC members in Warri, Delta state, also reeled out projects that the APC-led Federal Government has completed and those that are ongoing in the State and in the entire South-South.
He urged the people that Delta State can achieve more if they vote Great Ogboru, the APC governorship on 9 March.
According to Osinbajo: “Even the East-West road that we have been talking about, this is the first government to put resource into it and all of us will be able to benefit.
“The Lagos-Calabar railway is also ongoing. When people criticize President Buhari, many forget that of the four refineries that we built in this country, that when he was Minister of Petroleum was when we built three of them, 3,500 kilometers pipelines laid in three years by this same, Muhammadu Buhari.
“So we asked ourselves are we not better off under such a President, are we not better off when our state is part of that center? Delta State should not be an opposition state, why should it?
“What happened at the Presidential and National Assembly elections were a great victory, but the completion of the victory will come on Saturday when Great Ogboru will become the governor of Delta.”
The vice president also urged leaders and supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to unite, saying “when we work together, we will emerge victorious on Saturday.”
Also addressing an APC forum in Akwa Ibom, he told the people that they stand to gain much more when the thinking of the state government is aligned with that of the federal government.
