Chief Igbadi, a legal luminary and leader of Ewulu/Isheagu Ward 9 in Aniocha South LGA of Delta State, has expressed his profound appreciation to His Excellency Rt. Hon. Elder Sheriff Oborevwori for his appointment as a Special Adviser in his administration.

Chief Igbadi, chatting with newsmen immediately after his swearing-in on Wednesday the 13th of September 2023 at Unity Hall, Delta State Government House, stated that words alone cannot fully express the depth of his gratitude to the Governor for his appointment.

The PDP leader expressed his readiness to work and use his experience gathered from the private sector. It should be noted that Chief Igbadi retired as a management staff of Julius Berger Construction Company with wealth of experience in corporate management and good governance. He also used the opportunity to thank the leaders of Aniocha South Local Govt Council, the member representing Aniocha South Local Govt at the Delta State House of Assembly, Hon. Isaac Anwusia, the Commissioner for Technical Education Hon. Joan Onyemaechi, the Chairman Aniocha South Local Govt, Pastor Jude Chukwuweike, the National Organizing Secretary of the PDP Hon. Pascal Adigwe, and the PDP Chairman of Aniocha South Local Govt amongst others who contributed to his success.

Chief Igbadi appealed to fellow politicians and youths in the State to remain patient, stating that his political journey is not a new one as he has been contesting elections since 1992 while he was still working in the private sector. He recounted how he lost several primary elections but remained committed to serving his people. He likened his story to that of the former president of America, Abraham Lincoln who lost several elections, but persevered and remained committed to his dream. Chief Igbadi further stated that his tenacity in pursuing his dream has given him experience in the political field.

Affirming his commitment to the good people of Delta State and Aniocha South LGA, Chief Igbadi promised to contribute his quota to the development of the state under the MORE agenda of the Oborevwori led administration.
