Rt. Hon. Funkekeme Solomon, Senior Political Adviser to Delta Governor.

Political appointees in the administration of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa who have ambition to pursue elective positions in 2023 and are currently engaged in dropping the name of the governor during consultations have been told to exercise caution and not allow their conduct interfere with their official responsibilities.

The Senior Political Adviser to the Governor, Rt. Hon. Funkekeme Solomon handed down the note of caution to those involved in a statement entitled: “Political Activities Ahead of 2023 general Elections: A Call for Caution.”

He pointed out that appropriate sanctions await anyone whose aspiration becomes obstructive of or distractive to government, Rt. Hon. Solomon said by the resort to dropping the name of the Governor in the consultations those involved are portraying him as teleguiding the emerging process. “This is quite unfortunate as the actions of these persons could cause stampede and needless tension in the political space,” the Senior Political Adviser said.

For the avoidance of doubt, he announced that his office has been mandated to monitor the activities of all officials of the present administration to ensure compliance, the Press statement reads:
“It has come to the notice of His Excellency, the Governor, that some officials of our party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and in particular, some members in position of responsibility in this Administration, have begun consultations on their political ambitions, especially for 2023 general elections. Reports indicate that some of these persons have even resorted to dropping in the name of His Excellency, the Governor in these consultations thereby portraying him as teleguiding the emerging processes. This is quite unfortunate as the actions of these persons could cause stampede and needless tension in the political space.

“While His Excellency, the Governor is not adverse to anyone pursuing an ambition, it becomes out of place, when such actions are commencing barely nine months into the second term of this administration. Such premature politicking is capable of undermining the unity of purpose of this administration and distracting it from the set vision of bequeathing a Stronger Delta to the people of Delta State.

“In view of the foregoing, His Excellency, the Governor has directed that members of government, who are engaged in these actions under reference, should exercise caution. They should ensure that their conduct does not interfere with their official responsibilities in a manner that can weaken governance.

“Consequently, I am to state that appropriate sanctions await anyone whose aspiration becomes obstructive of or distractive to government. In this connection, the Office of the Senior Political Adviser to the governor has been mandated to monitor the activities of all officials of the present administration to ensure compliance with His Excellency, the Governor’s directive, please.”
