Why We Celebrated Ibori-Okowa, Delta state Governor

Delta State Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa has revealed that former Governor of the State, Chief James Onanefe Ibori deserved to be celebrated because of his lasting legacies and sterling leadership qualities.

Speaking during a grand reception organised in honour of Ibori at Ovwor-Olomu in Ughelli south local government area of Delta,  Okowa linked the “foundation of development” in the state to Ibori, saying he established a political structure “which served as a bridge builder and development agent across the country”.

 

PDP Chairman Uche Secondus praised the “sterling leadership qualities” of the former governor. Stressing that he was a “unifying figure and a blessing to the Niger Delta region”.

The PDP chairman noted “Ibori must be celebrated because he is a man of the people not just in Delta state but across the nation.

“Today, he is a factor in this country. On behalf of the masses of our country, we salute you, we salute your courage because you are a man who believes in the struggle of the party.”

He said in Ibori, Delta has “a son that has built a political structure that is envied across the nation.

“Delta state remains the only state in the nation that has a stability in political succession. It remains the only state where all the governors that have ruled the state are still members of the PDP.”

Ibori served a 5 years of a 13-year jail sentence in the United Kingdom and returned to the country in 2017.
