I will serve for one term if elected Delta governor- Ojougboh

A gubernatorial aspirant on the platform of the Delta State Chapter, All Progressive Congress (APC), Dr. Cairo Ojougboh has declared his intention to commit to serve for only one term, if elected Governor.
Dr. Cairo Ojuogboh was a onetime member representing Ika Federal Constituency in the NASS, and PDP governorship aspirant in the run-up to the PDP governorship primaries in 2007.
According to him, his desire to contest the governorship election is borne out of a desire to rescue Delta State from PDP misrule.
He said, “I want to make it clear that I am not contesting the Delta State governorship ticket just because I am from Delta North. I am not saying it must be me because I am from Delta North, I am not claiming superiority over anyone in Delta State.  I believe the APC must take power and all of us must make personal sacrifices, so that there will be change and if, however, you decide that I am capable and you elect me, I want to assure you that I will do only one term .I will not abuse the arrangement on the ground. I am a man of my words. I will do only one term”.
Dr. Cairo Ojuogboh spoke weekend to APC faithful in Delta South Senatorial District during a consultative visit in Uvwie Local Government Area.
He assured Deltans that the APC has wonderful programmes  , stressing that an APC government will guarantee “free and compulsory education in Delta Schools” and improving on the  poor health delivery service in the State, by building medical centres of excellence in the three senatorial districts of the State.
He condemned the present administration for budgeting a meager N290 billion as the 2018 State budget while  other States have budgets running into trillions  ,and  questioned  the use of N20billion monthly Internally Generated Revenue  accruing  to the State coffers.
Dr. Ojuogboh maintained that a politician, who gains election through the backdoor, will not be able to develop the State because he lacks ideas.
He said, “And this is why you cannot expect anything good from the current PDP led administration in Delta State. The government of Okowa is completely incompetent .Our federal allocation every month is approximately N14 billion and if you multiply N14 billion by 12 months, it gives you about the N290 billion, the current budget of the State. What is Gov. Okowa doing with the state’s internally generated revenue worth N20billion? Where has he kept it? How can he develop the State with a budget of N290 billion? He is not working with the budget because they are misappropriating and misapplying.”
He said APC in the South/South States will be supporting the second tenure ambition of President Muhammdu Buhari because of the developmental strides of the APC in the Niger-Delta region.
His words, “The APC has a wonderful programme for the people of Delta State .A lot of people in the South/South do not know why we are campaigning for Buhari. The PH/Aba road that was impassable is now a ten lane road. Ewu community road in Edo State to Sapele is being dualised, work is in progress. The East/West Road has been upgraded and with funds in the budget so that we can have a road second to none”.
He said under his administration, power will be restored to the political party, stressing that it is the party in power that owns the government of the day
His words, “As an APC governor we will take power back to the party, because it is the party that owns the power. So the government must respect the party. If you recognize the party structure from the ward executive level through to the local government and state executives, and the leaders which produced you, then you should know that you must discuss your programmes with the party”.
The highpoint of the occasion was the unveiling of the one-man-one vote plaque with APC chieftains in Delta South Senatorial District.
Dr. Ojougboh urged Deltans to ensure that their votes are protected and resist rigging during the Delta 2018 governorship elections
