Delta, Akwa Ibom Should Not Be Opposition States, Says Osinbajo
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo says Delta and Akwa Ibom States should not be opposition states urging the people to key into the progressive ideology of the All Progressives Congress at the centre.
Prof Osinbajo who visited both States on Monday said both States have more potential and could actualize them if they vote for candidates of the APC.
Speaking at the APC interactive forum in Warri, Delta state capital, the Vice President reeled the projects that the APC-led Federal Government have completed and those that are ongoing in the State and in the South South.
He urged the people that Delta State can achieve more if they vote Great Ogboru, the APC governorship on 9 March.
“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.
“Delta cannot be the same again. Delta was our focus of attention, we wanted to see what will happen.
“Delta has proved a very important point that it is ready for a change to the next level.
“Security is a fundamental issue and we will pay special attention to it,” he said.
The 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.”
In Akwa Ibom, Vice President Osinbajo addressed another APC Interactive Forum and urged the people that they stand to gain much more when the thinking of the state government is aligned with that of the federal government.
Prof. Osinbajo who walked on the streets of Uyo alongside his delegation to the South South state for about two miles, encourage residents to come out in their number to vote.
In Akwa Ibom, he was accompanied by Senator Godswill Akpabio; Minister of Budget and National Planning, Udoma Udo Udoma and other leaders of the party.
