A chieftain of Delta State APC, Prof. LeRoy Edozien, has called on south and middle belt leaders forum to work against Governor Ifeanyi Okowa. He also called on the leaders of the forum to also work against any other politician who accepted to be running mate to any presidential candidate.
The chieftain, Edozien is the brother to the Asagba of Asaba. And also the title holder of Ubili Ka Nkwu Ahaba. He made the call on Sunday, June 19, in Asaba.
The presidency should be rotated to the South come 2023, in the interests of equity and fairness, he mentioned.
“I am calling on the South and Middle Belt Leaders Forum to keep its word about working against any politician who allows himself to be nominated as running mate to any presidential candidate. If the Presidency is not zoned to the South, work against any person that accepted to be running mate. Okowa betrayed the southeast region”.
It is regrettable that the Delta state governor broke ranks, betrayed the Southern bloc, and lobbied for the vice-presidential slot while his Southern colleagues were pushing for the presidency, he continued.
The APC chieftain asserted: “Such pursuit of self-interest at the cost of broader state and regional progress has been a hallmark of Senator Okowa’s governance of Delta state.
