Speaking at the Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camp in Patani, Orubebe explained that the APC Presidential flag bearer could not make it to the camp to meet with them personally due to striking aviation workers across the country, but has expressed his deep-felt concerns for their welfare.
He said, “You know today our Presidential flag bearer was scheduled to be here but due to challenges in the aviation industry, he couldn’t make it. So he asked me and this support team to come and represent him here and to identify with the people.

I want to say to Deltans that this eight years of Okowa administration is a waste”, he stated.
