Speaking on the issue of zoning, the deputy governor stated that the issue of zoning is neither here nor there as his principal, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa had stated that there was never a time when everyone gathered and agreed to zone the gubernatorial ticket to a particular region and disqualified others in a different region from contesting.
Otuaro stated that he shares in the opinion of Governor Okowa that there is a zoning arrangement in Delta State and he also stated that he has the backing and blessings of his principal to contest in the 2023 gubernatorial election.
The deputy Governor who addressed journalists shortly after picking the forms at Wadata Plaza, Headquarters of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory, urged Deltans to be patient with the present administration.
He said, “We will Provide jobs, creates wealth, scale up educational, health reform and we will improve on all the projects that current administration are working on.
“Deltans should be patient with the current government and be committed to electoral process by voting for us.
“Deltans should approach the process with decorum, forthrightness and zeal.”
