Sheriff Oborevwori, the governor of Delta State, has urged his fellow politicians to maintain a spirit of humility while serving the public.

On Sunday, at St. Paul’s Catholic Cathedral Church in Issele-Uku, Aniocha North Local Government Area, the governor made the appeal during a thanksgiving service honoring Emeka Nwaobi, the Majority Leader of the Delta State House of Assembly.

Oborevwori praised Nwaobi as a decent man and advised him to remain humble in his service to God and to use his position to unite the people of Aniocha North for the betterment of the LGA.

We came through Ogwashi-Uku Stadium on our way here this morning, which is where the PDP governorship primaries were held in 2006.

“I traveled through that as a delegate then and today I passed through it as Governor of Delta State. That’s something only God can do, so I’m grateful for everything that happens, because if Okowa had been elected governor in 2007, I might not be in that position now.

Nwaobi thanked Governor Oborevwori and the party’s leadership for electing him Majority Leader of the House of Representatives.

He vowed his undivided allegiance to the Speaker and the rest of the House, and he urged the people of Aniocha North, and the Issele-Uku kingdom in particular, to keep voting PDP in order to reap the benefits of democracy.

Speaker Emomotimi Guwor and his wife Timiebi of the Delta State House of Assembly; Speaker Somtochukwu Udeze of the Anambra State House of Assembly; Deputy Speaker Arthur Akpowowo of the Delta State House of Assembly; the state chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olorogun Kingsley Esiso; and members of the Delta State House of Assembly all attended the thanksgiving service.
