The Chairman of Social Democratic Party (SDP), and CPP in the state, Mr Collins Oreruan said, “we resolved that instead of acting as individual entities, it will be more effective to support the governor as a block with our existing party structures across the state.

“We also advise our governorship candidates of our respective parties to withdraw their aspirations and join hands with the governor to consolidate on the growth, developmental legacies and foundation he has laid in his first tenure.”

“We shall work in synergy with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), to mobilise voters at the grassroots for the re-election of the governor.


“We have seen his positive economic development, positive industrial revolution, positive comprehensive qualitative educational programmes and positive agricultural value chains, among others,” he said.


Oreruan noted that under Obaseki-led administration the state had witnessed a peaceful atmosphere for businesses and industrial growth, many employment opportunities for the youth, also the governor’s educational and agricultural revolution in the state has attracted commendations from national and international communities.


He added, “Our support for Obaseki is total, cohesive, progressive and focused on a better life for the people of the state.
