War brews between APC, PDP over governor Okowa’s performance in Delta



– A House of Assembly aspirant in Ika northeast constituency on APC platform, Ifeanyi Agholor, said Governor Ifeanyi Okowa does not deserve second term in office

– Agholor alleged that the governor spends an average of N5 million every month paying political appointees for doing nothing and the political appointees are illiterates

– A PDP chairman in the constituency, Godwin Ogidi, while reacting to the Agholor’s allegation against the state government said nothing will truncate Okowa’s second term bid

The ruling All Progressives Congress, and the opposition Peoples Democratic Party have reportedly gone into a disagreement over the achievement of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa in Ika northeast local government area of Delta state.

This disagreement came between a House of Assembly aspirant in Ika north east constituency on APC platform, Ifeanyi Agholor, and the PDP chairman in the area, Godwin Ogidi.

Vanguard reports that Agholor said the people of the state should not listen to Ogidi who was calling on them to vote PDP in 2019 based on the governor’s achievement.

Agholor said: “My mission is to ensure that Ika people have effectively representation, make sure we have good roads in the area, look at the roads they have done, Melekwe street was done two years ago and other areas in LagosAsaba road, but there is no gutter for water go flow.

“Owanta community has been taken over by flood; I am going to tackle all these by making sure there is good legislation.

“APC cares about the masses, PDP does not care about the masses, it only cares about the interest of leaders of the party, Delta state has over 2,500 political appointees, 2,300 of them have no office, the only relationship they have is their bank accounts which the government credits every month.

The state government spends an average of N5 million every month paying political appointees for doing nothing and the political appointees are illiterates, they are teaching them how to eat fish, not how to catch fish.”

Ogidi, while reacting to the allegation made by Agholor, said: “I am standing here for our great party as the chairman of the party in my local government, we all have been working for the party, so let us continue so that our governor, Okowa will go back for second tenure.”

“Any Ika person belonging to APC is working against the governor, look at what the governor has done in just three years street lights and rehabilitation of roads in Ika federal constituency.”

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had reported that Delta state governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, pledged that the state government will take care of the hospital bills of the injured victims.

The governor also expressed sadness over the death of a worshipper in the unfortunate collapse of St. Paul Catholic Church building, Ugolo, Adagbrasa in Okpe local government area of the state.

In a statement issued by his chief press secretary, Charles Aniagwu, Okowa described the unfortunate incident as sad and regrettable.
