It is a blueprint and a call to action towards ending poverty and defeating hunger, promoting quality education, good healthcare and justice, protecting the environment, among other critical issues and thus achieving a better peaceful, prosperous and sustainable life for all Deltans.

The plank of the Jubilee Agenda is the party’s exclusive initiative on the comprehensive development of the state with the Local Governments Boards as the Special Purpose Vehicle, SPV of this transformative change. This is called the Equal Opportunity Local Government Development Initiative, EOLGDI

This is a 60 billion naira annual initiative, which translates to 200 million naira monthly to each of the 25 LGAs in the State. That is 5 Billion naira monthly on a state-wide basis.

It is envisaged that over the 4 year period of the administration, this will translate to direct infrastructural development of about 500m-600m in about 125 communities.

It is time to take back our state. Delta State is one of the richest states in Nigeria yet wallowing in poverty. We have crude oil in Delta and we are accumulating money from it. Recently, 1999 Oil derivation was released and Delta State had the highest share of over two hundred Billion naira. What did we do with it? Nothing. This nonsense must stop.

Delta is at the verge of collapsing but we will not let it collapse. This is why I’m out to deliver Deltans from this political squalor. I will never abandon anyone.

Let us put our hands together to see how we can set Delta State free for a Jubilee, he said”.
