The legal attorney made the statement when the Ozobo campaign trail visited him at his Warri residence.

The PDP stalwart applauded Ozobo’s courage, doggedness and civilised approach to addressing issues of public importance ,as regards Niger Delta and Ijaw nation.

He affirmed that many Ijaw leaders had benefited from Ozobo’s advocacy and support for Ijaw cause, and it is expected that such leaders threw their support for him devoid of bias and sentiment.

While praying for him to succeed, he admonished him to further consult other leaders in the Burutu LGA for more support.
