Endorsement Of Guber Aspirant Divides Delta PDP Leaders

Sun May 8th, 2022 - Delta

The gubernatorial ambition of Senator James Manager in Delta South Senatorial district has divided Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leaders in the state.

Senator James Manager, representing Delta South in the Senate, Dr. Bradus Angozi, a former commissioner for agriculture and Barr. Kingsley Otuaro, the deputy governor of Delta State, are the three ljaws vying for the gubernatorial seat in 2023.

Ijaws in Delta State have been working round the clock to prune down the list of aspirants contesting the 2023 governorship election in order to increase their chances of winning the seat.

Manager was said to have been picked ahead of the other two aspirants to slot it out with other PDP aspirants from other senatorial districts, with a view to emerging as the sole candidate of the party for the Delta 2023 governorship election.

The emergence of Manager, politically referred to as Egbage, was said to have been preceded by several rigorous and painstaking processes, which began with the declaration of the ‘Ijaw Agenda’ mantra.

But Prof Benjamin Okaba, National President Ijaw National Congress (INC), the apex Ijaw sociocultural group, faulted the process, saying that the organization has not chosen a consensus Ijaw governorship aspirant as it is being peddled.

He urged the general public to disregard the rumour and that if a consensus aspirant is decided, it would be the duties and responsibilities of the Ijaw apex organization to announce to the public.
