Urhobo Should Wait Till 2023, Okowa Deserves Second Term, Says Ibori by ijeabom(m): 5:05am On Mar 09, 2019
Former governor of Delta State, Chief James Ibori, has urged the Urhobo of Delta Central senatorial district to shelve the idea of seeking to govern the state now and allow Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, by extension Delta North senatorial district, to complete a second term bid and wait for 2023, when it would be their turn.

According to the state leader of the People Democratic Party (PDP), who spoke at Okowa’s campaign rally at Owa-Oyibu in Ika North East Council, said: “Watching from afar, after the flag-off of the governorship campaign at Oghara, I am here to thank the people of Ika nation, because Anioma supported my victorious bids to govern the state for two terms.

“I felt that having launched the campaign in my Oghara community and rounding it off here, I decided that I should be here. Even if the plate is yours, you will still have to wash it before usage. You have always supported PDP, this time, I urge you to do it tenfold, to make a statement, because our governor has done well and I am personally proud of him.”


Ibori recalled an instance to buttress his points thus: “When Okowa was commissioner for Agriculture and Water Resources, one of our leaders confided in me then that Okowa has sunk boreholes in almost every community across the state. He knows the terrain and knows how to spread dividends across the state.”

He further expressed appreciation to party members who contested but failed to make it, urging them to persevere and eschew any form of ill-feelings and work for the party’s victory by learning from Okowa, who made it after three attempts.

“I want to reiterate that I am an Urhobo man and I speak on behalf of the good people of Delta Central, that we will speak on March 2. We have done it before and we will do it again. The Urhobo of Delta Central will work for your second term, because one good turn deserves another. This is the turn of Anioma.

“All qualified Urhobo should step aside, let us give equity and unity the chance. Our people should begin to warm up for 2023,” he posited.

Okowa, on his part, expressed joy over the massive turnout of supporters and party faithful at the rally, saying: “I’m impressed and proud of you all. It is clear, from this massive turnout, anyone is talking about another party is a joker.

“Ensure that after here, get across to those who are yet to comply, bring them back to the fold. And please, remember that after voting for PDP on Election Day, stay behind to protect your votes and follow them to the collation centre.”

Why 2023? If we urhobos should wait, let us do so till 2048, by then Ijaws would have done 8 years, Isokos would have done 8 years, Kwales would have done 8 years.

Omo Agege actually spoiled the plan by Emerho. Emerho was clamouring for Delta North candidate but Omo agege was indirectly used by the state governor to bring Ogboru which is from Delta Central. Had it been a Delta North candidate was presented, Okowa should have been preparing his handover speech by now. Forget APC or PDP. Delta votes base on candidate.

The average south south man does not know how to play tribalism because of kobo kobo. We too like money and refuse to see beyond the short term.

Playing the Tribal card again, Ibori knows he is becoming irrelevant in Urhobo land, he couldn't even deliver his LGA well for Oboro. Is it today that he (Ogboru) starts campaigning?, didn't Ogboru campaigned against Ibori (Election we all know how some people rigged), Didn't he campaigned against Uduaghan?, so why is it now that he is campaigning against Okowa that you want to bring this nonsense tribal card.

Ogboru is not even 100% urhobo, he is Half urhobo/Half Anioma, so what's this man talking about? His major fan base is in Abraka/Ukwuani/Ndowkwa.

You care about Equity and you guys rigged last presidential elections for Manager, even when it was obvious that it was time for the itsekiri's the produce the next Senator.

Let Deltans decide, Wishing Okowa and Ogboru the best.

Is Ogboru popular amongst the Ijaws? Will the Urhobos deliver on block voting?

Yes Ogboru is not a yeye candidate but you know in politics everything matters. Is just like in Nigeria case, if PDP had brought southerner to compete with Buhari the margin would have been far more than this.

The plan was to bring Pat Utomi which is a good candidate and from Okowa region which is Delta North. But it was jettisoned by Omo agege and co.

Though just like everything matters in politics so everything is possible in politics

But I am seeing Okowa retaining his seat. mind U am not PDP.
