Former governor of Delta, James Ibori, has revealed how he was instrumental in the emergence of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa in 2015.

According to Ibori, who stated this when he received a delegation of Ndi Anioma led by Dr Emmanuel Efeizomor, the Obi of Owa, and Chairman, Delta Council of Traditional Rulers, in his home in Oghara on Saturday, Okowa’s emergence was based on justice, equity and fairness.

He said the massive support he received from the Aniomas in his quest for governorship in 1998 prompted his choice of an Anioma indigene as his deputy.
Ibori added;

“My belief in justice, equity and fairness informed my firm support for an Anioma governor which has come to pass with Governor Ifeanyi Okowa in the saddle. He promised to continue to identify with the Anioma people and urged them to remain united and support Okowa to succeed.
