Delta State governorship aspirant, Olorogun Kenneth Gbagi, has said senatorial districts in the state were expected to wait for 16 years for the governorship seat saying “We can’t change the game in the middle of the field.”
Gbagi stated this at his Oginibo country home, Ughelli South Local Government Area when he hosted members of the Gbagi Solidarity Movement.
While noting that it was the turn of Delta Central to produce the governor of the state in 2023, he said it was designed for a senatorial district to wait for 16 years for the governorship seat.
“It is a simple analogy that if we all belong to one father, and we have an agreement as to how we want to run the affairs of our father, we cannot change the game in the middle of the field.
“Every senatorial district must wait for 16 years. Delta central has waited for 16 years while Delta South and North completed their eight years tenure respectively so now that it has come back to Delta central everyone should respect the agreement.
“Delta South that has just finished eight years as deputy governor cannot claim that it is their turn to produce the governor. That would be ungodly, that would be unfriendly and that would be politically inaccurate.
“I plead that we should understand ourselves and work for the growth, greatness and development of Delta State,” he said.
Gbagi thanked Chief E. D. O Obofukoro and members of the Gbagi Solidarity Movement for their continued support for his gubernatorial aspiration.
Gbagi used the occasion to cal on Deltans to pray for the Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, to contest for the presidency come 2023.
While expressing satisfaction with the achievements of Okowa in the state, he reiterated that the governor has all it takes to give the much needed good leadership of the country if he emerges as president.
“I sincerely Pray and urge Deltans to pray for Okowa to make himself available to serve the nation as president. He deserves to be the president of this country, come 2023″ he said.
He expressed hope that God would grant the prayer for Okowa becoming president of the country.
