South-South Editor and Festus Ahon SMARTING from his endorsement for re-election by royal fathers and youths of Delta Central, the Urhobo kinsmen of his main challenger in the forthcoming governorship election, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State has asked the All Progressives Congress, APC, candidate, Chief Great Ogboru, to tarry till 2023 when it will be the turn of his district, once again, to return to power. Governor Ifeanyi Okowa Okowa spoke exclusively to Sunday Vanguard. He was responding to a cheeky question on why he should not be benevolent enough to allow Ogboru, who had contested five times and lost, to win on his sixth attempt, whereas he (Okowa) contested just once in 2015 and triumphed. He laughed and said, “He (Ogboru) is from Delta Central, which has taken its two tenures through former governor, Chief James Ibori, while ex-governor, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan, served two tenures for Delta South. So why would he (Ogboru) want to truncate a process that gives room for peace, fairness and equity in the state? “He does not have to be a serial contestant; all I thought is that Ogboru should have waited till 2023 to try his luck once again and, for the peace and equity in this state, I sincerely think that he would not have needed to be on the ballot paper this time.”
