That Great Ovedje Ogboru is a household name in South South part of the country, a shining light in Delta State and one of the greatest Nigerians ever produced will amount to stating the obvious as there are facts and proofs to buttress this
Ogboru, today can boast of different academic degrees from various prestigious institutions around the world, but how he was able to lay foundation of his flourishing business empire with a mere secondary school certificate still make many to accord him respect for his rare business ingenuity even as his story of grass to grace keep inspiring many to greatness.
Ogboru, after secondary school, worked in a fishing company for barely three years then he went ahead to establish his own and paddled it to an admirable level with lot of success stories to tell.
Having conquered in the business world, Great decided to impact his people with his wealth of experience by seeking to become governor of Delta State. This, he is to be achieve as he had given the coveted seat a shot at various times.
But as a man who goes all out to chase is dream when he’s convinced it is achievable, Ogboru is again hoping to be sworn in as the governor of Delta State come May 29 as he will be contesting for the seat with the incumbent governor of the state who is seeking a re-election in the up- coming governorship election on 9th of May
.However, what is audible to the deaf and visible to the blind is that unlike ever, Ogboru’s ambition seems to have become a movement many have bought into and this is the reason why pundits are of the view the PDP government in the state is not likely to have it easy this time even as the momentum of the APC candidate, Ogboru is perceived to have been on the rise.
The People’s General as Ogboru is popularly addressed is believed to be enjoying support as a viable opposition due to the belief he’s got the magic wand to turn the state around if he’s elected. It is in the same spirit Deltans in the diaspora; particularly United Kingdom and United States have taken it upon themselves to mobilize support for the APC governorship candidate with everything within their means.
