The Delta State Deputy Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC in an interview with newsmen exposed the alleged plot of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa/PDP Administration to cripple the economy of the state in order to punish the people of Delta State for voting en masse for Ogboru. This move is to frustrate the income APC administration should the higher courts upturn the judgement of the Delta State Governorship Election Tribunal.
According to the Deputy Chairman, if this recklessness of the Okowa/PDP Administration is not checked on time, they would make this state uncomfortable and unbearable for businesses to thrive and for anybody to live in, in the near future.

“Imagine the same PDP led Government who claimed there was no enough fund to complete the Warri Industrial Park that was near completion, now having enough money to start up another industrial park project, when the Warri Industrial Park is there lying waste.”
The APC Chieftain made it clear that this project is just another “conduit pipe” through which the state government wants to siphon our money as usual. According to him, the Okowa/PDP led Government knows if they try to complete the Warri Industrial Park, there won’t be enough money to steal from there, since the project is near completion, thus they want to start a new project that would open another channel for them to remove billions from the state treasury, since stealing in millions is no more in vogue, cos it’s not enough for them.
“Until Deltans rise up to the challenge, and take their destinies in their own hands, Delta State will continue to plunge deeper and deeper into the muds. If we don’t fight our battles, nobody will fight for us, we must all speak out to stop this evil trend, or we would be left to wallow in the ruins of our blessed state, that once flowed with milk and honey,” he said.
Taking a critical look at the statement of the APC Chieftain, it has become imperative and expedient for us to take up the responsibility to stop this menace. We must live up to the expectations of the public and the responsibilities saddled on us as The Press.
We can not sit back and watch our dear state being ruined, if you allow your mouth to be shot up, just for a peanut of the billions stolen, your family will live to suffer the consequences of our greed. Remember, your conscience must be nurtured in truth and by the truth.
