Friday’s verdict of the Supreme Court is a vindication of the supreme mandate bestowed on him by the people of Delta State,  Delta State Governor, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan,  has said.

“I owe this victory to God and Deltans. I only pray that our opponents would by now have realised that we enjoy a supreme mandate as expressed in the will of the people. One with God has the Majority”, Uduaghan  said.

The governor, in a statement by Felix Ofou, his press secretary, expressed immense gratitude to God and Deltans for the Supreme Court ruling as well as previous victories at the polls and in the courts.

” There is time for politics and there is time for election petitions, but it seems there are those determined to use court cases no matter how frivolous to distract and divide Deltans, but God has been with us because he ordained this government,” he said.

Governor Uduaghan however called on Chief Great Ogboru, his challenger in the suit at the apex court and his supporters to join hands with the administration to develop the state

“Delta belongs to all of us. The time to fight is over. Now is the time for Chief Ogboru and his followers to join hands with my administration to develop the state”, he appealed.
