Adding that the group was formed to work on the actualization of a Delta Central Governor in 2023 and not to antagonize the sitting Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa nor work against the People’s Democratic Party, PDP.

A renowned Professor of English and Literature at Delta State University, Prof. Sunny Awhefeada, in his keynote address with the theme:”URHOBO, DELTA 2023 AND BEYOND”, advised Urhobo to be united on a just cause with emphasis on ‘OKIEMUTE’.

Olorogun Ighoyota Amori who emerged as National Chairman of DC-23, in his acceptance speech, stated that the formation and inauguration of DC-23 remains a critical day in the annals of the political history of Delta Central, adding that it was a day created by God to usher in the process of the success of a Delta Central Governor of Delta State, come 2023.

Amori explained that the group was not meant to be a parallel body to the PDP, nor was it formed to promote disharmony among the three senatorial districts of the state.

He said DC – 23 would support Governor Okowa to finish strong, promote inter – senatorial peace, love and unity in the state, and create the enabling environment for succession to the Governorship seat in 2023.

The National Chairman reminded the people of Delta Central that the task ahead was enormous and should not be left for the executive of the body alone, insisting that every member of the PDP in Delta Central and friends of the party must be involved in the process.

Amori emphasized that the group would not be confrontational in its approach, pointing out that it would go round to persuade the people of Delta Central to support the 2023 Governorship project, and solicit the understanding of the people of Delta North and South towards the actualization of the dream.

Highpoint of the ceremony was the administration of the relevant oath of office on Chief Amori and other members of the executive and Board of Trustees of the group by a legal luminary, Chief Efe Akpofure (SAN).

In his vote of thanks, Publicity Director, DC-23, and former Commissioner of Urban Renewal, Delta State, Olorogun Arthur Akpowowo, said with the huge success of the programme, history has been made.
