According to Olorogun Kenneth Gbagi, when I was the Minister of Education (State) I has nothing to do with government salary and I did not use government cars as the Minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria I used my personal cars before I left office and that’s exactly what I will do when I became the governor of Delta state in 2023 by the special grace of God.
He said PDP did not zone their party ticket to any tribe in the state but Senatorial District, according to Gbagi, it will interest you to know that in 1999 to 2007 my senior brother, Chief James Ibori former governor of the state (Delta Central), 2007 to 2015 my dear friend, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan (Delta South) former governor of the state, now Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, the incumbent governor of Delta state from Delta North. So for fairness and equity, come 2023 is the turn of Delta Central to produce the next governor in the state.
When ask if is not too early for him to campaign for governor when the present government is yet to settle down with legal battles, he said he is not campaigning but doing consultation ahead of 2023, am very much ready for the task when is time for campaign I will campaign but for now am doing my consultation with my friends and leaders in the state.
Gbagi commend governor Okowa for his developmental stride and promised to sustain his legacies when he become the governor in 2023.
