Takeme made the declaration when Delta Ijaw Youths paid him a consultative visit at his Warri residence over the weekend.
Daily Report Nigeria recalls that the Delta Ijaw Youths had backed the unveiling and adoption of Oborevwori as sole governorship candidate for the 2023 election by Ijaw leaders back in December 2022.
The group also declared that its mandate is to carry out the declaration of the elders to the latter.
Intimating Takeme of its mandate, the group’s spokesperson, Comrade Augustine Okporu said the resolution of the elders is what the youths are running with for 2023.
Responding, Takeme said the unanimous decision by the elders to adopt Oborevwori as governorship candidate for 2023 was the only option.
“The PDP remains the only party with the interest of Ijaw people at heart. And as far as Ijaws are concerned, Sheriff Oborevwori is our only option.
“There is no denying the true fact that the outgoing governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa has done well for us in this administration. And I have no iota of doubt that Oborevwori will continue in that stead when voted into power.”
Takeme, who endorsed the mandate of the youths, commended their resolve and promised to give the needed support for the group to achieve its objectives.
