The Executive Assistant to Governor of Delta State on Communication, Dr Fred Oghenesivbe has said that those in the Delta State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to unseat Governor Okowa in 2019 election may just be daydreaming.
While reacting to a publication in an online newspaper, The New Diplomat, titled: “2019: panic grips PDP as APC plots to unseat Okowa” describing it as laughable as APC leaders in the sate lacks the capacity to win election.
According to him, ” Elections are not won on pages of newspapers and on the cyberspace. For the avoidance of doubt, Chief Great Ogboru and Olorogun Otega Emerhor in time past ganged up against PDP and its candidate under the Democratic Peoples Party (DPP) and both crashed like a pack of card.
“Therefore, their recent political reunion is not new to Deltans and shall crash shamefully again come 2019.
“May I also add that Prof Pat Utomi is a super breed academician but not a grassroots politician. I am pretty sure that there are several American and British Universities waiting to contract him as a super Professor of Political Economy.
“Ogboru is strongly advised to sort out himself and reposition his private company before thinking of contesting the guber election in 2019.
“There are also strong indications that APC will not allow Ogboru to fly its flag in 2019, which may have accounted for the reason why APGA Party signs are all over Abraka, the capital of Ogboru’s failed governorship ambition spanning nearly two decades.
“On a final note, PDP under the leadership of Gov Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa in Delta State is solid and fully in-charge of the political mobilization of the grassroots in the State.
“The enviable performance of the Okowa administration speaks volume and Deltans more than ever before are willing and ready to re-elect him come 2019,”the statement added.
