Former governor of Delta State, Chief James Onanefe Ibori, on Saturday spotted at a special solidarity event of PDP women groups in Ethiope West Local Government Area of the state.
The event which was hosted by the Senatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for the good people of Delta Central Senatorial District, Senator Ighoyota Amori, attracted women groups. They pledged their loyalty and block vote to Amori and all candidates of PDP.
The national leader and former governor of the state got a standing ovation on his arrival, and went on to greet the women numbering over two hundred before engaging Amori on a private discussions. The duo are political associates spanking nesrly three decades and counting. Amori is widely known to be the second in command of Ibori Political Dynasty, IPD.
Even though Chief Ibori did not make any political statement, gladiators saw his presence at the home of Amori at a time he was hosting PDP women in the LGA, as a pointer to the fact that the former governor is likely to make positive political statements before the presidential and National Assembly elections on February 25, more so that his biological daughter, Hon Mrs Erhiatake Ibori-Suenu is on the 2023 ballot for the House of Assembly elections on PDP ticket.
Let’s keep our fingers crossed as Chief James Ibori navigates through the political terrain in the coming days to the general elections.
