A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta State, Christopher Akpojotor Agaga, has applauded the Delta State governorship candidate of the party, Great Ovedje Ogboru for picking Ossai Abeh, as running mate for the 2019 election.
Addressing newsmen, Agaga described the choice of Ossai as runninf mate as the best decision, saying that it will further increase the membership strength of the party in the state.
Besides, he said the Ogboru/Ossai ticket is capable of defeating the incumbent governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Agaga who said Ossai is a man with pedigree, noted his choice as running mate is like putting a square peg in round hole, describing him as Mr. Integrity who has sacrificed much for the party since 2003 that Ogboru indicated interest to run for the Delta state governorship seat.
He said Ossai who hails from Obiaruku, Ukwuani Local Government Area of the state, is also a clergyman and lecturer in the Department of Business Administration at Novena University, Ogume, Delta State, and also founding member of National Institute of Marketing.
He was at a time Delta North Senatorial chairman of the defunct Alliance for Democracy (AD), and also Delta North chairman of Democratic Peoples Party (DPP) and Labour Party, as well as state chairman of Light of Labour and state chairman, Light of APC.
