The leader of Delta Political Vanguard and member, Delta State House of Assembly, Mr Mike Diden had on weekend said that politicians in Delta State were ready to obey the former governor of the state, James Ibori.
This was revealed by Mike when he organised a reception in honour of the ex-governor of the state.
Ibori used the occasi
on to endorse the governor of the state, Ifeanyi Okowa, for a second term in office. According to him, he was pleased with the performance of the governor and as such, should be supported till 2023, Vanguard reports.
He said this was to enable the governor complete his Transformation Agenda for the state.
“I am very grateful for the way you left what you were doing at home to come and welcome me. After I have rested, I will start to make comments and you people will hear what I have to say. As a father, when a child shows you his report card that he passed his examination, you will clap for him. As a leader, when you see what is good, you applaud it. Governor Okowa is laying a foundation for the development of Delta State and four years will not be enough and he will need another four years to continue to do this. I support his agenda and I will back up whatever I say. When he finishes, we shall continue from there. You gave him the mandate; you should support him to actualize it. We should continue to reposition our state as a strategic state in Nigeria.”
