PDP National Chairman, Uche Secondus, has called on Nigerians to celebrate the person of former Delta state governor, James Ibori. Secondus made the call when he spoke at a grand reception held in honor of the former governor in Ughelli, Delta state yesterday March 10th.
Secondu said the PDP needs his leadership skills to win the general election in 2015.
“Ibori must be celebrated because he is a man of the people not just in Delta state but across the nation, today, he is a factor in this country. On behalf of the masses of our country, we salute you, we salute your courage because you are a man who believes in the struggle of the party. You [Delta State] have a son that has built a political structure that is envied across the nation. Delta State remains the only state in the nation that has a stability in political succession. It remains the only state where all the Governor that have ruled the state are still members of the PDP,” he said
Ibori returned to Nigeria on February 4th 2017 after serving a five year jail term in a UK prison for money laundering.
The reception was attended by former governor of the state, Emmanuel Uduaghan and Ifeanyi Okowa, the incumbent governor.
