Leader of the mainstream APC in Delta State, Olorogun O’tega Emerhor, has said the Niger Delta region has far better under the President Muhammadu Buhari tenure than it was treated under his predecessor, Dr Goodluck Jonathan.
He spoke in a message to welcome Buhari to Warri for the flag off of APC presidential mega rally/APC Campaign flag off billed to hold at Warri Stadium on Thursday.
In a press statement personally signed by him, and obtained by BigPen Online on Tuesday, he said that Delta is agog over President Buhari visit and are anxiously waiting to receive a man that has brought so much transformation to the state and the entire Niger Delta region.
The APC leader who described the Buhari-led administration as a model of good governance, urged Deltans from all walks of life to troop out to the Warri stadium to give Mr President a resounding welcome.
According to him, “President Muhammad Buhari has delivered on his major campaign promises he made to Nigerians in 2015, and it’s only ideal to return such a visionary leader to consolidate on the developmental strides recorded under his watch in the past three years.
Emerhor noted that Niger Delta has been fairly treated by the APC led government, and should vote for APC massively in the coming election in appreciation of the government’s efforts in changing the region.
“We in the Niger Delta have not had it so good, even when our son was the President, we didn’t have such treatment, look at the Maritime University, Itakpe to Udu railway line, the dredging of Warri sea port and the NDDC massive roads construct which is made possible by the President.
He therefore, called on Deltans to be decisive with their votes, as this is not the time to play the ostrich.
According to him, “Deltans must now look far beyond sentiment and petty politics and massively cast their votes for President Buhari, because a vote for Mr President is a vote for growth and development of the Niger Delta.
He assured Mr President and members of the Presidential campaign Team, that, Deltans are intelligent and smart people who have chosen the “Next level” over going back to Egypt.
