Delta Gov Distributes Cars to Federal Lawmakers

By Chuks Peter, DELTA |

In June 2024, the Delta State Government purchased and distributed brand new cars to all federal lawmakers representing the state.

This generous gesture was carried out without any public ceremony or official announcement.

Earlier, Governor Sheriff Oborevwori had presented 20 brand new utility SUVs to judges in the state, coinciding with the inauguration of a high court complex commissioned by former President Goodluck Jonathan in Asaba, the state capital.

Hon. Francis Ejiroghene Waive, the representative for Ughelli North/Ughelli South/Udu Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, confirmed the car gifts and praised Governor Oborevwori’s inclusive leadership.

He described the governor as a “Governor for all Deltans,” highlighting his respectful treatment of everyone, regardless of political or religious affiliations.

In a letter addressed to the governor, titled “Thank you for being Governor to all Deltans,” Waive expressed his appreciation for the governor’s gesture.

He lauded Oborevwori for his non-partisan approach and his commitment to assisting members of the National Assembly with operational vehicles.

Waive’s letter, which was made available to the press on Friday, noted that Governor Oborevwori had no room for “politics of bitterness.”

He acknowledged the governor’s unprecedented decision to provide vehicles to lawmakers irrespective of their political party, noting it as a historic move.

The letter reads in part: “Permit me, Your Excellency, to begin by thanking you for upholding the tradition of assisting members of the National Assembly from our state with operational vehicles.

“You have done what has never been done in our history by extending this kind gesture to all, irrespective of political party affiliation.

Adding, Today, I received mine, and all of us in the Delta caucus of the 10th National Assembly appreciate you.

“You have demonstrated again and again that you are Governor of all Deltans, and posterity will not forget you. This is a new dawn in our polity; please keep carrying everyone along, because this is the right thing to do, and our state and you too will reap the benefits.”

Attempts to ascertain the cost of the cars were unsuccessful as relevant authorities, including lawmakers and officials at the Delta State House of Assembly Complex, could not be reached at the time of filing this report
