As the race for the Governorship ticket of the APC in Delta State intensifies, the real Politicians and Skimmers in Delta APC, have started what they know how to do best.
Olorogun O’tega Emerhor a first class graduate of accounting, the 2015 Governorship candidate of APC and the leader of APC in Delta State, who believes in his ability to brainwashed co leaders, has successfully skimmed his way through to get Chief Engr. Hyacinth Enuha to lend him his support to favour Delta North for the governorship ticket.
According to a source close to Olorogun Otega Emerhor, the idea was to cajole Engr. Enuha to support him fight for the ticket to go to the North, knowing fully well that Engr. Enuha favours Rt. Hon. Victor Ochei for the governorship, he said Olorogun Otega’s plan was to dump Engr. Enuha and his Ochei’s project after helping him to secure the zoning of the ticket to Delta North. According to him Olorogun Otega wants Prof. Pat Utomi to get the ticket, since he does not trust Rt. Ochei, whom he believes would be greedy and power drunk if given the ticket.
Just two days ago, the music has changed, according to Olorogun Otega’s man, the dancing steps have equally changed, with Engr. Enuha dancing strange steps. He said “as we speak, my boss (Olorogun Otega) is confused, Engr. Enuha has gone behind him with Ochei to brainwash Rt. Hon. Rotimi Ameachi, now Ameachi is throwing his weight behind Engr. Enuha and Rt. Hon. Victor Ochei, as against Olorogun Otega’s plan to project Prof. Pat Utomi” He also said Engr. Enuha is arranging to call for a meeting of the governorship aspirants this Sunday 22nd April 2018, at his country home in Ogwashi-Uku, to finally overpower and subdue the decisions reached at one Olorogun Otega called last week at Evwreni, where he would inform them of the outcome of the meeting held two days ago in Abuja, at the instance of Rt. Hon. Rotimi Ameachi, and to advice the other contestants to all step down for Rt. Hon. Ochei. It was said that the State Chairman, Prophet Jones Erue and his Deputy Chief Cyril Ogodo were also present at the meeting in Abuja, where this plan was hatched.
This development according the source close to Olorogun Otega, is very disturbing, and that this might lead to another serious disunity in the party, because according to him, Olorogun Otega has vowed never to accept that imposition from Rt. Rotimi Ameachi.
On further investigations of the report, an associate of Engr. Enuha was contacted, he equally confirmed the story. When asked how they intend to handle the crisis, should Olorogun Otega fight back the imposition by the Hon. Minister of transport, he said he does not believe Olorogun Otega will rebel against the decision, “Ameachi has been his backbone in the system, why should he now decide to fight against his godfather? If he chooses to toe that part, then I pity him, because Aneachi will crumble his empire” he said.
On a further questioning on whether Engr. Enuha intends to call all the aspirants to the Sunday meeting, or just those from Delta North, he said they will call all except Chief Great Ogboru. When asked why, he said the truth is, “the battle is between Great Ogboru and the others, the fact that Ameachi wants Ochei, does not automatically gives him the ticket, so we must harmonise all forces to be able to defeat Ogboru in the primaries”
Deltans are eager to see a change, but this would not come easy, since Sen. Okowa is fighting real hard to retain his seat. And PDP is uniting and resolving all their differences in preparation for the 2019 General Elections across the state. If APC must oust PDP in Delta, then chief Enuha and Olorogun Otega must stop this betrayal and work together sincerely. And they must try and work without sentiment and hidden agenda that is capable of igniting another round of war between them. It would be recalled that they just settled their differences recently after a prolonged battle, between both leaders and their followers.
