SOUTH-SOUTH leader and former Federal Commissioner of Information, Chief Edwin Clark, yesterday, said the All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship candidate in Delta State, Chief Great Ogboru, is wasting his time, adding that Ogboru would not defeat Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Clark told Vanguard on phone that by the unwritten power zoning arrangement in the state, Delta North Senatorial District should complete its two terms of eight years by 2023 before power would shift again to Delta Central where Ogboru hails from.
The elder statesman was emphatic that APC should have picked its governorship candidate from Delta North Senatorial District, describing as absurd, the permutation that the APC would use federal might to overrun the state.
His words: “Ogboru is just wasting his time. Ogboru has had his time. They are saying that since Buhari contested elections many times, Ogboru should also contest many times in the state.
