Ahead of the 2023 general elections in Delta State, two political heavyweights in the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Barr John Obukowho Nani and Hon (Evangelist) Michael Diden, popularly known as Ejele on Sunday visited Chief Joe Ejorhofo Omene, at his home at Mosoagr, Ethiope West local area of Delta State.

The visit of the two chieftains of PDP who are also Board Chairman and Executive Director of Finance and Administration of Delta State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission, DESOPADEC, gathered may not be unconnected with their political aspirations to run for senate in Delta South and Delta Central.

The visit Executive Director of Finance and Administration in DESOPADEC, Chief John Nani, “the Aghwemutuwevwi of Urhobo land” with his large entourage, Chief Joe Ejorhofo Omene’s Country Home, our correspondent gathered was to inform the foremost Urhobo leader of his desires to contest for Delta Central senatorial election on the platform of the PDP come 2023 elections.

Though the discussion of Chief Nani and Omene, was held behind a closed-door, the feeler from the meeting is that, after Chief Nani informed his kinsmen in Jesse that he was running for senate, he came to also solicit the support of Chief Omene’s who commands huge followership amongst Urhobo youths and students.

It was also gathered that the visit of the two PDP top-shots may not be unconnected with the move to have Ejorhofo, who until 2015 was a prominent PDP member to defect back to the party, since his sojourn to the opposition has not added value to him politically, even with his huge sacrifices.

DESOPADEC Board Chairman, Hon  Michael Diden, who is also the Chairman of Delta Political Vanguard (DPV), is considered in the PDP cycle as a strategist lends credence to the news of the possibility of Omene’s going back to PDP if things pan out well.

When contacted Chief Joe Ejorhofo Omene on the visit of the two PDP senatorial aspirants, he refuse to speak on the details of their visit, he said: “Can’t people visit me, my house is open to all Deltans, and you know I don’t discriminate against people base on political, ethnic or religious persuasion. Is their visit political; are they not Deltans?
