The governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Delta State, Chief Kenneth Gbagi has expressed confidence that he will be declared winner of the March 11 governorship election in the state.
Gbagi who said this in an interview also accused the current state Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa of planning to pay voters ₦50,000 each to vote for the candidate of the PDP in the state, Sheriff Oborevwori. He advised residents of the state to take the money and vote for him.
His words, "I believe very strongly that if the Delta State we all know is a 96% Christian and the entire Christian family have said Gbagi or nothing, we will be very happy on March 11 at the election results because I very much know I will emerge winner of the election.
All that we just have to mindful about is the audio that has just gone round that Okowa is willing to pay ₦50,000 each. This money, Deltans, are your money that has been borrowed which yourself, your father, your mother, your sisters and brothers will have to pay whichever way.
So it is your money and my advise is that, take this money, eat it with joy but vote for me to be able to reindustrialize Delta. Delta can only be able to pay the debt back, Delta can only be able to run this state with industrialisation as it’s peak."
