A former Delta Governor, James Ibori, has thrown his weight behind Governor Ifeanyi Okowa for a second term in 2019.
Ibori stated this during the maiden products exhibition and business fair of the state’s Skills Training and Entrepreneurship Programme (STEP) and Youth Agricultural Entrepreneurs Programme (YAGEP) held at the Cenotaph in Asaba.
Speaking directly to Okowa, Ibori said: “I am pleased that you have invited me and my duty is to pray for you. The day Deltans voted for you, they did so with the confidence that you will deliver, and you are delivering.
“I am a Deltan and I do have a voice on matters that border on the peace and progress of Delta State.
“I may be watching from the sidelines, but I want to say again that you (Okowa) are doing well. At the end of your eight-year tenure, Delta State will be better for it. Your Excellency, we are solidly behind you.”
