A Delta State Peoples Democratic Party governorship aspirant in 2007, Chief Sunny Onuesoke, has expressed optimism that the state Governor-elect, Senator (Dr) Ifeanyi Okowa, will not disappoint the Urhobos.

Speaking during a solidarity/thank you visit by members of the Urhobo Renaissance Initiative, Onuesoke explained that his optimism was based on the fact that “Senator Okowa is a grassroots politician that has a pan Deltan agenda”.

“He is an experienced politician  who knows the yearnings of Deltans. So the Urhobos should be rest assured that he is not going to disappoint them.”

Onuesoke urged the Urhobos to continue to support the Governor-elect and the PDP.

While thanking the group for the visit, Onuesoke stated that the visit will spore him to do more for the Urhobos, Delta State, Nigeria and humanity in general.

President General of Urhobo Renaissance Initiative, Comrade Ovigue Avwerosuo, had earlier in an address commended Onuesoke for his unflinching support for Okowa and the PDP in spite of threats and condemnation from some Urhobos.

Onuesoke also got a pat on the back for using his NGO, Network For Good Governance, for the advancement of democracy and rendering useful information to the world on regular basis.

Onuesoke was again hailed by the group for floating a foundation which, they said, has been helping in checking the menace of climate change and protecting the environment.
