CHIEF Ighoyota Amori, the Political Adviser to the National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Uche Secondus, has sagaciously declared that no politician from Delta Central Senatorial district (Urhobo), which he and former governor of the state, Chief James Ibori, hail from in Delta State, will contest against the incumbent Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, in 2019.
Amori, who is a political strategist and one of the leaders of the party in Delta Central, in an encounter with Saturday Vanguard at Asaba, capital of Delta state, said Urhobo people were preparing for governorship in 2013, adding that it would amount to injustice of the highest order for any Urhobo man to think otherwise, except somebody in another political party.
Amori, who maintained that power rotation has come to stay in the state, added: “It is not possible even if Okowa is not doing anything; the governorship will still come from Delta north in PDP. But he is performing to our satisfaction. He is a very intelligent person and is holding forth for the Ibori political family. He knows this, we have said it in his presence and we have said it behind him.”
