RE: DELTA 2023- Ibori, Oyowvaire Should Not Deceive Urhobo People, Ijaws Are Heavily Set To Take Over Delta Govt House.

My attention has been drawn to a publication credited to a faceless organisation known as Delta Ijaw 2023 Governorship Advocacy Group led by one Amb Okporu Ebi Augustine with the above caption

it is most disconcerting and disheartening when a group of mischievous, reckless, dangerous and hopelessly misguided ethnic bigots that ought to know better like the Delta Ijaw Governorship Advocacy group now choose to dish out artificial truth just to score a cheap political point.

Whoever sponsored the group to do such write up in utter disregard for the personalities of Chief James Ibori and Prof Sam Oyowvaire does not mean well for the Ijaw nation.

No matter how hard you try to rubbish the name of Chief James Onanefe Ibori he remains a political colossus, astute administrator and an enthusiastic leader of impeccable disposition.

May I remind you that power rotation/zoning is one of the reasons PDP is so united in such a manner that no Political party can unseat them in Delta state and that remains the brainchild of Chief James Ibori who you distastefully spoke so sparingly about?

Yes, indeed, Urhobo has always been in the race despite the zoning formula, so also is Orubebe from the Ijaw ethnic nationality but it never affected the zoning arrangements

May I also remind you that Gov Eweta Uduaghan by his election became the first man? living or dead in the state to be elected into that hallowed office from an ethnic geographic minority background with due regard to his Itsekiri ancestry..this was made possible by the zoning arrangement put together by leaders of our great party headed by Chief James Ibori.

The fact that despite pressure from UPU to retain power Chief Ibori against all odds instituted the zoning arrangement by handing over power to Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan from Delta south even when it was far easier and convenient for him to retain power in Delta central senatorial not only commendable he also deserves some accolade.

I wish to also remind your group that it was learned on good authority that Ibori insisted on the power shift arrangement by leaders of the party, thirteen years ago, which is that Delta North senatorial district should produce the governor in 2015 against the clamour by the UPU, the apex socio-cultural group of his Delta Central district for an Urhobo governorship flag bearer and that paved the way for Delta north to produce the Governor in 2015.

Your claim that Delta central did not support the emergence of our amiable Gov Dr Ifeanyi Okowa is not only satanic but also misleading because it is on good record that he received about 45% votes from Delta Central.

This minimized the impact of the 185 votes that Hon. Ochei received, 10 votes each by Sam Obi and Prof Sylvester Monye, 5 votes by Festus Okuboh, 6 votes by Peter Okocha and the 50 and 49 votes that went to Hon. Elumelu and Elder Godsday Orubebe,
respectively. majority of whom are from Delta north

Delta Central is the home of PDP and it is insulting to undermine them in the socio-political advancement of the party in Delta state.

Every error and every evil act and choice that we made has deep and debilitating spiritual and practical consequences and those consequences are much greater and far more devastating than we think or appreciate.

The desperation and threat coming from some misguided elements of the Ijaw ethnic stock are capable of destroying the unity and peace we all have experienced in the party over the years.

Those very insignificant proportion of self-serving and greedy Ijaw political activists should note that the days of political impunity and civic rascality that held sway during President Jonathan’s era is over

Thankfully the Delta state Chairman of the ruling PDP has reiterated the sacrosanct nature of the zoning arrangement and further warned that all those who want to go against that arrangement or fan the ember of disunity will be made to understand the true meaning of Party supremacy..the fact that Delta central will produce the next Governor come 2023 is a given.

Threatening to go the way of Bayelsa is tantamount to pushing your luck too far, it is far more reasonable to remain in the power equation than been in opposition.

A word is enough for the wise
