Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will surprise the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) at the polls in the 2019 general elections, Delta State House of Assembly Speaker Chief Sheriff Oborevwori said Tuesday in Asaba.
He made the assertion while addressing journalists at the resumption of plenary session after one month annual recess, “I’m hopeful that the PDP will pull a stunt by defeating the ruling party in 2019.”
The House commenced an annual recess on Thursday, July 20 and resumed on Tuesday, August 22.
Oborevwori promised that the state assembly was committed to collaborating with the executive arm and stakeholders towards passing people and development-oriented bills in the state.
He said the party had undergone a rebirth and was ready to take over from the ruling APC come 2019.
“The PDP is now a strong opposition party and the APC today should know that they have a very strong opposition and my message to Nigerians is for them to have more hope, more trust in the PDP. The PDP will bounce back in 2019,” the speaker said.
He said members had been repositioned and were determined to put in their best for the people of the state.
“I also trust that we used the opportunity of the recess as a build-up to performing more credibly on our constitutional responsibilities as legislators and more ever determined to put all that wealth of experience to good use.
“As the Third Session of the Sixth Assembly resumes, my assurance to Deltans that the Delta State House of Assembly, which we all know as the most vibrant House of Assembly in the country, will be very focused, very articulate and we are going to do very well and Deltans should expect more robust debate. We are going to dwell more on our bills and oversight functions.”
