Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State on Friday called on the candidate of the All Progrssives Congress (APC) in the March 9, 2019 governorship election in the state, Chief Great Ogboru to support his administration’s efforts to develop the oil-rich state.

The governor urged Ogboru to stop further fighting over the March 9 governorship election in the state.

Okowa spoke on Friday at an inter-denominational thanksgiving service shortly after the reaffirmation of his electoral victory by the Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal, which sat in Asaba.

He said, “I appeal to my brother, Ogboru, that the time has come to stop fighting; it is time to partner together to do the best that we can for our people.

“I ask for the hands of the opposition, because Delta State is for all of us; we cannot do it alone and I want to thank our supporters and all Deltans for praying for us.

“We require the assistance of all in prayer and in human partnership, and we must continue to pray for our state and our country, because we believe that our prayer will save our country.
