Olorogun O’tega Emerhor, the 2015 APC Governorship candidate and leader of APC in Delta State has reacted to the reported endorsement by Chief James Ibori of Gov. Ifeanyi Okowa for a second term as Governor of Delta State come 2019. In Emerhor’s view, such endorsement did not come as a surprise! Chief Ibori he said, is the alter ego and defacto principal of PDP in Delta State and is not unexpected for him to promote as always, the interest of PDP and Gov. Okowa.
This, however, put a lie to the deception and misinformation being peddled by certain quarters that Ibori harbours any sympathy for APC either in Delta State or at the Federal level. We in APC Delta State have anticipated this endorsement long ago and are quite prepared to meet him, Okowa and the PDP at the 2019 elections to finally determine which party now owns Delta State political landscape, Emerhor concluded!
