Governor Sheriff Oborevwori

Sheriff Oborevwori, the Governor of Delta state has credited his governorship to divine ordination, expressing gratitude to both God and the people of Delta for his Supreme Court victory.

He highlighted overcoming 38 legal challenges, spanning from pre-election to post-election phases, as part of his journey to becoming the state’s governor.

Oborevwori, who spoke on Friday, January 19, at a thanksgiving service at the Government House Chapel Asaba, Delta Capital, stressed that God ordained him to be Governor and thanked Deltans for supporting his ambition.

According to him, “I came to this altar before I went to Abuja for this last judgment and I said God is not a man that he should lie. I have promised God that every time He gives me victory I must come here to thank Him.

“I have done it several times and I said I will also return the same day of the victory to thank God. For the Lord has redeemed me.

“This victory is not about me but about the people of Delta state. The immediate past governor said that somebody that would not recognise this altar will never be governor; God has honoured that word.

“This case made it 38 cases for me from pre-election matters to this one. Even the governors who have done eight years did not go through such number of cases.

The Governor who was earlier welcomed from Abuja by a mammoth crowd at the Asaba International Airport, said he was happy that the litigations were over, assuring that he would now concentrate in delivering on his MORE Agenda for the people.

“I was overwhelmed by the crowd and the show of love at the airport. I want to reassure Deltans that my Deputy Governor and I will continue to serve you.

“This victory is for our people to know that our God is faithful and He alone has delivered us.

“I call on my opponents to partner with us to move Delta state forward. This victory is for everyone and like I promised Deltans, I will be the governor for all Deltans,”
he said.

Dignitaries at the event are Tobore, his wife, Deputy Governor Mr Monday Onyeme and wife, Catherine, immediate past Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa and wife, Edith.
