Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain and former Delta State gubernatorial candidate, Chief Sunny Onuesoke, has called upon the citizens of Delta State to exercise patience and support Governor Sheriff Oborevwori as he embarks on the implementation of his ambitious plans for the state.
Speaking to journalists in Warri, Onuesoke emphasized that Governor Oborevwori has laid out a comprehensive agenda that aims to build upon the successes of the previous S.M.A.R.T. agenda, with a focus on delivering M.O.R.E. in terms of socio-economic development.
Recalling Governor Oborevwori’s inaugural address, Onuesoke highlighted that the governor’s vision involves both consolidation and advancement. The consolidation aspect involves building upon the foundation laid by the previous administration, while the advancement aspect aims to elevate the state to even greater heights.
Onuesoke delved into the details of the governor’s master plan, emphasizing that it begins with a clear understanding of the strategic intent behind the M.O.R.E. agenda and the desired outcomes over the next four years.
He explained, “Governor Oborevwori’s success will be reflected in various aspects of Delta State, including job creation, increased GDP and internally generated revenue, heightened capital inflow, expansion of agricultural exports, improved overall economy and living conditions for citizens, environmental restoration, upgraded infrastructure, social stability, security of lives and properties, as well as enhancements in the education and healthcare systems.”
Onuesoke also highlighted Governor Oborevwori’s interactions with different groups in order to gauge the public sentiment and serve them better. He pointed out instances such as the announcement of free healthcare services for pregnant women and children under five years of age during the maternal, newborn, and child health care week. Additionally, he mentioned the governor’s discussions with local government council chairpersons to address concerns about environmental sanitation and multiple taxations.
Addressing a pressing issue, Onuesoke commended the governor for addressing the backlog of pensions owed to retired primary school teachers and local government retirees during his recent meeting with the state chapter of the Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON). He viewed this commitment as a significant step in the right direction, signaling that the implementation of the governor’s comprehensive master plan is well underway and that the resolution of crucial issues is within sight.
