Renowned industrialist and one of the oldest leading employers of labour from the days of Midwest/Bendel State, Olorogun Morrison Olori, has assured Deltans that the frontline aspirant for the Governorship of Delta State, Olorogun David Edevbie, will make a massive difference in the development and growth of the state when elected.

Chief Olori gave the assurance in Ughelli on Monday when Edevbie took time off his consultation schedule to felicitate with the octogenarian on the occasion of his 83rd birthday anniversary.

The seasoned investor in various sectors, ranging from breweries, mining, automobile to real estate, said with his experience in business, he recognises Edevbie’s capability to drive the economy of Delta State into a glorious era.

“There is a difference between education and knowledge, but Edevbie has both the education and the knowledge.

“I am confident and can assure Deltans that he will make a huge difference in the economy of the state as Governor.”

David Edevbie, three-time Commissioner of Finance, former Principal Secretary to President Umaru Yar’adua and immediate past Chief of Staff to Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, is widely acknowledged by Deltans for his professional competence, private sector expertise in development finance and management both locally and internationally, his high education and his proven experience in public service both at the state and national levels.

Chief Olori, the Obaseki of Ughelli, is reputed for his ownership of Sparkling Breweries, producers of Sparkling Lager beer and Olo soft drinks, Olori Motors, Olori Estates and First Delta Mining Company, with which he provided thousands of jobs for the people.
