Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, the Deputy President of the Senate and the All Progressives Congress governorship candidate in Delta State, has appointed Elder Godsday Orubebe, a former Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, as the Director-General of his Gubernatorial Campaign Organization ahead of the 2023 general elections.
This was stated in a statement signed by Ima Niboro, Director of Communications and Media Strategy for the Delta APC Gubernatorial Campaign Organization, and made available to journalists in Warri on Wednesday.
In the statement, Omo-Agege said, “Orubebe is bringing on board a towering wealth of experience, and shall oversee all ramifications of the campaign for the mandate of Deltans in the 2023 governorship elections”.
The statement read in parts, “Orubebe shall, side by side with me, lead critical engagements and drive consultations, and by his renowned robustness, up the ante for the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP. Together with the rest of the team, we shall show PDP the way out of Government House come May 29, 2023.
“The selection of the Ijaw-born politician is very straightforward given his knowledge, capacity and pedigree.
“Bringing him on board strengthens the campaign organisation straightaway, and builds a strategic redoubt of crucial stakeholders at the grassroots for the contest ahead.
“When news of Elder Godsday Orubebe’s resignation from the PDP filtered in, June, our Campaign Organisation applauded him for toeing the path of progress and enjoined him to pitch tent with progressives in the APC, and help in the task of taking over Government House come 2023.
