The Ika South Local Government Council Chairman,Hon.Fred Ofume has stated that the PDP Deputy National Chairman in the defunct Sheriff faction,Dr. Cairo Ojougboh was like a father to him who contributed immensely in making him the Council chairman of Ika South LGA.The Ika South Council boss stated this in his office at Agbor while briefing newsmen on his achievements in the past three years that he has been in office.He said apart from God,the person who contributed immensely to my becoming the chairman of Ika South Local Government Council is Hon. Dr.Cairo Ojougboh and they are still very vordial.
God used him to bring me to political limelight and of course,Dr.Cairo Ojougboh expects me to keep the light shining.How I keep the light shining beholves on me as an adult.We are from the same village and as a matter of fact, he's my relation and he has been like a father to my family.Immediately after the 2015 election,Dr. Cairo Ojougboh called me and Hon. Isaac Ulebor in the presence of mama (his mother) and told us that henceforth we are Gov.Okowa's children as senator Dr. A. I Okowa is the leader of the party in the state and that we should fuse into his political family.
I also visited Government House,Asaba with Dr. Cairo Ojougboh where we met my governor,senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa and told him thst he (Dr. Cairo Ojougboh) has handed us to him as his hildren.So my relationship with Dr. Cairo Ojougboh is very cordial.But as a politician now,I should understand my role as a student in Okowa's political institute.Hon.Ofume also used the opportunity to commend the governor for his SMART agenda and urged all Deltans to support the Okowa's administration.
