Biography Of CHIEF Great Ovedje Ogboru – Wife , Children , Net Worth – Age – CHIEF Great Ovedje Ogboru, commonly known as the ‘Peoples General,’ has won the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, governorship ticket in Delta state, while Barr George Timinimi and Peters Omaruaye have won Senate seats.
Ogboru chose the party’s ticket during the affirmation vote of the party’s primary election, which was place on May 29, 2022, at the PTI Conference Centre in Effurun.
Ogboru received 618 votes from 625 certified delegates from the 270 wards of the 25 Council Areas, according to the results released on Sunday.
Earlier, Elder Enemokwu Afamefune, Chairman of the 5-man State Special Electoral Panel, stated that Ogboru’s choice of APGA was providential and at God’s time.
“In his great kindness, the almighty God has now heardken to the masses’ longing and desire for a subtle and better life in Delta.”
“I refer to Ogboru as the one who is coming to APGA to free Deltans from political enslavement.”
After declaring the results and raising his hand to cheers from supporters, Afamefune named Ogboru as the party’s flag bearer for the 2023 election.
After his affirmation, Ogboru remarked, “I thank you for the time and patience that allowed us to achieve what we did; I say I am tremendously and eternally thankful.”
“We’ve been on a long journey, and everything has a beginning must also have an end.” I want to think that we have reached the conclusion of our trip and that what we began many years ago must come to an end.
“But we will not go with a cry of despair, but with a yell of gladness.” I don’t want to go over the tumultuous history of what has occurred in Delta State.
“Suffice it to say that if there is an election in Delta, an election so correctly named in the meaning of the word that we must win.”
“There is no bigger power than that which you symbolize, which has been what we dubbed the ship of hope.” We began many years ago, but thank God, we have reached the end.
“Thank you for bearing my sorrows and for keeping hope alive.” Looking at your faces, I sense hope, and I can assure you that lightning will never strike twice.” He continued.
Ogboru proposed an all-inclusive government and promised not to pursue personal vendettas if elected since it would be time consuming and retrogressive.
