The Delta state givernment through its Executive Assistant to Gov. Ifeanyi OKowa, Barr Fred Latimore has responded to an online news media known as Sahara reporters, who recently allege that Chief James Ibori , former governor and leader of the PDP in Delta state is not happy with Gov. Okowa on the dissolution of the Delta State Independent Electoral commission. DSIEC without consulting him or seeking his inputs.
In swift reaction to the allegation Barr. Fred Latimore ask Deltans to disregard the said online publication stating that Ex Governor Ibori don’t deserve any form of consultation or input in the day to day running of the state as the governor is only performing his constitutional duties. In his words
“The leader (Chief James Ibori) will be wrong to insinuate that Gov Okowa must consult ex-governors in all matters that enhances good governance before doing the needful; after all the governor is not and will never be remote-controlled to do his job and to fulfil his campaign promises to the good people of Delta State, as captured in the SMART AGENDA blueprints”
Fred Latimore who is known for his potency in turning against anybody in as much as such move is in tandem with his policies of stomach infrastructure may have by this very disrespectful response on behalf of the government of Delta state give credence to the publication credited to Sahara reporters.
Whistleblowers In a telephone conversation with a former chieftain of the PDP and a notable figure in Delta politics Chef Joseph Daniels wondered why the Delta state government always use every available opportunity to show disrespect for the former Governor, he stressed that though he has left the PDP family because of the monumental failure of this present administration, it is wrong for the Okowa administration to always ridicule the former Governor at every given opportunity, he wondered why Okowa is bent on bringing down a man who has seen him from the scratch as a Chairman of council, commissioner, SSG and ultimately a governor of the state, He therefore called on Deltans to join hands with the All progressive Congress in the state to vote out this corrupt, clueless and incompetent administration of Gov. Ifeanyi Okowa, as the umbrella has been turn into pieces and will be used as a burnt offering in the next political dispensation to usher in a more people oriented and focus APC government come 2019
