The Delta State governorship candidate of the Progressive People’s Alliance (PPA), O’Diakpo Obire, has called for enduring unity among the people for harmonious coexistence and progress.
Obire, who addressed his supporters in Asaba at the weekend, said the state can only experience rapid development in unity.
The candidate also advocated for peace and support for Governor Ifeanyi Okowa and the lawmakers.
Obire, who was on a thank-you tour in Delta North, praised the people for voting for him despite all odds.
A statement by his media aide, Comrade Musa O’Karo Ugasa, reads: “If all Deltans can put aside ethnicity and see themselves as one, the state will progress, and this will benefit all Deltans irrespective of political background.”
He urged politicians to refrain from hate and divisive speeches or inciting the youths against one another based on ethnicity, political party and parochial sentiments.
