“We are committed to the struggle of electing a more credible governor in the person of Chief Great Ogboru for the state. We have moved past PDP and we refuse to be distracted.”
Speaking in a similar vein, Mr Ochei said his decision to move out of the PDP was in realization of his desire to render qualitative representation to the people of Delta North and would not be dissuaded by political detractors.
