DELTA 2023- Ibori is not opposed to Oborevwori – Amori

PDP senatorial candidate in Delta Central senatorial district, Delta State, Chief Ighoyota Amori, has stated that the former governor, Chief James Ibori, is not working against the party’s governorship candidate, Rt. Hon Sheriff Francis Orohwedor Oborevwori.

Ibori and the party’s current vice-presidential candidate, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, disagreed over the choice of Oborevwori, which lasted until the Supreme Court last month overruled the application of Ibori’s preferred candidate, Olorogun David Edevbie.

Speaking at the ward-to-ward campaign of the party’s governorship candidate, Oborevwori, in Abraka, Ethiope-East local government area, Amori, one of Ibori’s closest political allies, stated that the political and emotional frictions were over.

Oborevwori and Ibori’s daughter, Hon Erhitake Ibori-Suenu, the party’s candidate for Ethiope federal constituency, were united in their appeal to voters to vote for them, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar/ Senator Okowa, and other party candidates standing for election in 2023.

Amori said: “I want to assure all Deltans that our leader, Chief James Onanefe Ibori is supporting Oborevwori to emerge as governor of Delta state.”

“We are his men and we can tell you, he brought all of us, including the Speaker into government, and it is his joy to support every one of us. PDP is his party, and he is not contemplating and cannot contemplate any other option.”

“The disagreement has come and gone. The Supreme Court has put the matter to rest and we have no other choice than to support the governorship candidate.

“Oborevwori is a political product of Chief James Onanefe Ibori. We served in government together under Ibori and he remains his political son. Ibori has endorsed Oborevwori 100 percent to become governor of Delta State in 2023,” Amori said.

However, Edevbie recently applied to join a suit filed by another PDP governorship aspirant, Ikie Aghwarianovwe, at the Federal High Court in Abuja, seeking to remove Oborevwori as the governorship candidate.
